I'm helping my brother in law renovate the kitchen in his condo. He
would like to replace the ugly flourescent light fixture with some hi-
hats. The problem is the junction box where the present light fixture
is connected has some feed through wires which feed other lights and
outlets in the condo. So if i install Hi-hats, that junction box has
to stay where it is. I know I can't bury it. Even if I install a
white cover plate it's going to look ugly. So what are my optons? The
only other option i can think of is instead of hi-hats, I could
install a nice fan/light combo or track lighting that can still use
the junction box in the center of the kitchen.
Because the junction box is in the center, and I wanted to put the 4
hi-hats at the corners. So the length of the wires is an issue.
Someone else suggested put an old construction hi-hat in the center,
for a total of 5 hi-hats. At least if I had to get to the junction
box, I could just take out the hi-hat. So I'll have to think about it.
The fan in the center is not a bad idea either.
