Ceiling medallions are
easy to fix light equipment, which can be painted to
match, the color scheme of the room in which they are
installed. These can be easily fixed to the ceiling
with glue or drywall screws. Since these are
relatively inexpensive and durable they can be used
all round the house. Given below are tips on how to
fix a ceiling medallion:
While fixing a new medallion, the first thing
you should do is to turn off the power from the fuse box.
Arrange the medallion pieces on the floor and
understand how the different pieces are to be fixed.
If the ceiling opening is large you may have
to increase the size of the medallion opening.
Apply just enough glue, on to the back of the
medallion, about one inch from the edge of the medallion.
Set the medallion in its place and allow the
glue about two hours to dry completely.
Apply caulk around the medallion to cover any
gap between it and the ceiling.
Once a caulk has dried you can paint the
medallion to match the color of the walls or ceiling.
You can then wire and hang the chandelier or
other ceiling light fixture, by attaching the ceiling cap to
the surface of the medallion.
If a ceiling light already exists and you
want to install a medallion, you will have to remove the light
fixture first and install the medallion. Once the medallion
has been fixed properly, the light can be reinstalled.
If you are reinstalling light fixtures ensure
that you keep all the nuts and screws carefully, to reuse
You can clean your light fixtures thoroughly
as you are dismantling them.
