我住在一个与爆米花（A.K.A California）天花板的公寓。下周我让他们刮胡子，痉挛，涂上光滑。 我也想挂天花板（用餐区拼命地需要更多的光线）。由于我已经完成了天花板，我以为我可能会要求承包商也运行电线。什么是最佳方法？
I live in a condo with popcorn (a.k.a California) ceilings. Next week I'm having them scraped, spackled, and painted smooth. I also want to hang a ceiling light fixture (the dining area desperately needs more light). Since I'm having the ceiling done, I thought I might ask the contractor to run a wire as well. What is the best way to go about it?
Here is the picture I have in mind:
Cut a shallow groove in the ceiling to the nearest wall with electrical box nearby. Snake a wire from electrical box to the ceiling, then lay wire in the groove and spackle it over. Install the fixture (I have not decided on exact type yet, probably something hanging like a chandalier) with concrete bolts. The spot where the wire comes out of the ceiling would be concealed by the fixture.
Does this make sense? Is there a better way to do it?
While that might work, I doubt your HOA would allow grooving the ceiling because the concrete is part of the common structure.
Instead, install flat conduit.
Or maybe you might like a beam which could conceal a wire.
Another alternative would be to fur out the ceiling and install a drywall ceiling on top of your existing ceiling. This would give you an area to run new, concealed wiring. Another benefit to this is that you wouldn't need to scrape the existing ceiling which can be really messy (not to mention a lot of work), and you will need to mud/tape and paint regardless.
Do a little trench in the wall / ceiling and bury a proper plastic conduit, nexy tou'll just have to 'pull' new wire
