Step 1: Determine Your Shape and Install Lights

Determine the shape you want the track to follow. This kind of system allows curves and bends to get light where you need it. Install the track and the spotlights according to manufacturer's instructions.

Step 2: Hang the Pendant Fixtures

To hang the pendant fixtures, replace the bulb if necessary. Snap the lights onto the track in the pattern that will offer the best illumination and decorative effect. To create mood lighting and energy efficiency, you may want to add a dimmer to the wall switch.
