2 Light Fixtures, one junction box
Good Morning Everyone,
My name is Mike and I'm new to the forum. I'm a fairly handy DIY'er (or at least not afraid to try most projects!). I have a question though and wanted some adivce.
My wife and I will be remodeling our bathroom, the usual paint, vanity, faucets and lighting.
The light we have over the double-sink vanity is currently one of those 4' long multi-bulb units that is wall mounted and centered over the vanity. It is mounted directly to the junction box in the wall behind it (same setup I'm guessing that many of us have in our homes.
We are planning to switch to 2 smaller light fixtures over each sink, still wall mounted. My question is, what is the best way to run power from the now single, center mounted junction box, over to the left, and right side of the walll where the 2 new fixtures will be? And, what is the method that will require the least amount of drywall cutting, taping and mudding? Also, what can I do with the existing junction box once I have run my wires from it to the 2 new fixtures? Cap it off and drywall over?
Any advice would be really helpful.
Thanks in advance!
