How much should you expect to pay?

Light fittings

Low High
Light fittings £50 £150

Adding new light fittings to your home is a straightforward job for any professional electrician. The cost of the job, in labour terms and equipment costs, will very much depend on the kind of fitting that you wish to have installed. A basic pendant from the bedroom ceiling can be very simple, whereas fitting recessed lighting or track lighting in your kitchen requires far more preparation and installation time.

Having recessed spotlights in the ceiling can be very attractive, but do be aware that your electrician will have to drill out a hole for each spotlight and then connect the light to the power supply and the light switches. This will add to the labour time and therefore the cost of the job. Your electrician should be able to advise you on which light fittings will work best for your home, as well as how they will best interact with your switches.
