I recently moved into an apartment in Austria, where you're responsible for installing all light fixtures yourself (tenant/landlord laws are very interesting here). Most of the wiring is straightforward, centered in the middle of the room with no excess cables. However, two (A & B) are positioned in tight corners against a wooden beam, and some have protruding plastic pipe encasing them. The last one (C) has an excess length of cable that inspires fear.
My question is, how do we install fixtures here?
For A & B, do fixtures even exist that can be positioned flush against a corner? Are we meant to cut open the ceiling and re-route the wiring into a different position? For C, my husband suggests we either shove the majority of the cable back up into the ceiling, or cut off the excess and reattach the junction boxes. These after I naysayed his idea to keep the excess hanging out of the wall like the world's ugliest pendant light.
All ideas appreciated!!
A - upstairs hallway
B - bedroom
C - living room
