    Hi,

    I want to add some loft lights...in our loft. There is one light at the moment on a fixed pendant, this is situated centrally above the loft hatch. I want to add 2 more lights to each far end of the loft.

    What would you say would be the easiest way to do this when the switch and existing light are in the middle of the run?

    Thanks,

    Screwed.

    If you want them on the same switch then simply run a cable from the existing rose to each new location and fit a new light at each.

    Yeah same switch, will it not be a bit crammed in the pendant? Seems like the simpleast solution though but thought I'd ask anyway!

    Cheers!

    Depends whats currently in the rose, cable sizes, etc. Worse case, junction box next to the rose?
