Good Reasons to Shop DIY Batten Fix Light Fittings

DIY batten fix light fittings are a quick and easy way to upgrade or change the look of your space.  As they do not involve wiring, and fit straight over your existing batten fixture, installation is easy.

What are DIY batten fix light fittings?

So what is a batten fixture?  A batten fix is a common light fitting that is simply a single lamp holder connected or wired to the ceiling or wall. A batten fixture will hold a globe, and can be covered by a batten fix light fitting. And this is where DIY batten fix light fittings can help to hide a batten fix, and add personality to your space at the same time.

A batten fix will take a BC, or bayonet cap, style globe. Also known as a B22 globe, it is a type of globe that his two pins that hold the globe in place. The globe is generally gently pushed in an upward motion into the batten fixture, and turned to “lock” the pins in place. This is in contrast to an ES, or edison screw, globe that will, as it’s name suggest “screw” into the light fixture base.

To install a DIY batten fix light fitting simply remove the skirt on the batten fix (this usually unscrews), slide the metal ware of your fitting over the exposed batten fix, and replace the skirt.

Why use DIY batten fix light fittings?

As noted, DIY batten fix light fittings are great for hiding a plain batten fixture, and for injecting style into the spaces of your home. Due to the ease of installation, and no electrician required, DIY batten fix light fittings are a great decorating solution for renters, as they allow you to change the décor and look of your home without having to make costly, and possibly unauthorised, changes to the electricals, or ceilings, of the home.  Even better, you can take these with you when you move!

DIY batten fix light fittings are an inexpensive choice

Batten fix light fittings can be great even if you own your home, as you can change the style of fittings without the additional electrical costs.  Change your style as trends change or as your tastes change.  And, they are perfect for making inexpensive changes to the look and feel of your home.  You can retain your budget, and while still transforming your spaces.

Batten fix light fittings do not have to be limited to flush ceiling fittings.  There are also options for hanging kits that will allow you to hang pendant lights from your batten fix.  Alternatively, you might cover your bare batten fix with a batten fix cover and then add a filament globe to make a simple elegant statement.
