What is the cost for installing a light fixture?

There are more brands and types of lighting fixtures than we can count but installing them generally involves the same steps. First is the cost of the actual fixture and this can vary wildly depending on your taste and your budget. Discount fixtures can be as inexpensive as $10, more expensive ones easily running into the hundreds or thousands of dollars but the limit is really just what you are willing to spend. The installation itself depends on the existing service and what you need to secure the new fixture and supply it with electricity. In particular, flush mount or globe lights will usually need an upgrade is a standard light was in place before. The cost of these parts is relatively modest – under $25 – and labor will cost between $75 and $150. On the other hand, installation to a spot where a light has never been installed before means running an new line and could potentially cost as much as $500.
