    Hi everyone, sorry if this seems like a stupid post.
    I have recently moved houses and want to install recessed lights in the bedroom. I have changed lighting fixtures were power is only sent to one fixture. Could I just simply send power to the first fixture and then daisy chain them using wire connectors, or is it not that straight forward? Do I need anything else besides extra wire, connectors and the fixtures?
    Any help would be grateful.

    I think you should get a few quotes, possibly mark and drill out the holes for the spark.

    There’s a few things that need checked like ocpd, bonding, rcd protection etc ..... that may turn into extra work that you weren’t expecting

    Agree with @Andy5678@Andy5678 but the most important thing is knowing where the joists are above the ceiling. Attic above?

    Have a rethink. Do you like being blinded when you lie in bed?
