Before you hire a professional, see our installation guide to install your next light fixture or ceiling fan. Our step-by-step instructions will show you how to install certain types of lighting inside your home. Upgrading your lighting can change the look and feel of a room and make it more functional. Evaluate what type of lighting is missing in your room, whether it's recessed lighting needed for overall illumination, or you want to control the atmosphere of the room with a dimmer switch, or you want to not only change the lighting in the room but make the space more comfortable with a ceiling fan. Learn how to do these projects with our how-tos. Installing lights yourself can be a cost-effective way to upgrade your lighting. Before you start a project, make sure you take all the necessary safety precautions and read through all the project instructions. Be sure to work safely during the project and follow instructions carefully. In case you run into a problem, have on hand the number of a reputable local electrician who you can call.
