While it's fresh in my head, here's another electrical question:
Going to redecorate the master bedroom very soon. Thought I might as
well take the opportunity to put some wall-mounted bedside lamps in,
with dimmer switches below. I don't think I'll bother making them 2-way
with a master switch at the door... it seems more trouble than it's
worth to me.
This is going to sound like a very simple question but better safe than
sorry especially where electricity is concerned!
I've wired lights before just using the usual junction box method, but
since the light and the switch are going to be so close together, can
anyone see a problem with the following:
Fit junction boxes in the lighting loop, above the wall cavity in the
loft, one for each lamp.
For each light, drop a twin and earth down the wall. Neutral goes
straight to the light. Live and earth continues down to the switch below
and then back up to the light.
Seems completely straightforward to me but I thought I'd better get a
second opinion first!
