How Much Does It Cost to Install Bathroom Light Fixtures in NSW?
Let’s take a closer look at the factors involved in installing light fixtures in your bathroom, and how they’ll influence final cost.
As a general rule of thumb, the final cost of installing bathroom light fixtures will vary depending on:
For example, a simple powerpoint installation is less time consuming and thus less expensive, compared to a job that requires having new wiring installed.
Electricians often charge a flat service fee, as well as an hourly rate for any job that involves installing light fixtures in the home. The service fee will cover the first 30 minutes of work on the job, with the hourly rate coming in thereafter for extra time taken to install the light. As you can imagine, jobs that have an added level of complexity will end up costing more. In contrast, there are some electricians that may have a set rate for doing a specific job, such as installing a downlight or powerpoint.
The Average Cost to Install a Light Fixture
New bathroom lights often cost anywhere between $50 - $200 to install, however, multi-light fixtures can cost as much as $400 or $500. This cost is subject to even more of an increase if made of high-end materials like gold or silver. The large number of lighting and plumbing fixtures in a bathroom can also make the installation more complex, thus increasing the installation cost.
The cost of light fixtures themselves ranges quite heavily depending on the material type and quality.
When choosing light fixtures, you should consider the cost of the light and its projected lifespan before deciding on your chosen fixture.
The Average Cost to Change a Light Fixture
So, we’ve discussed the factors that influence the cost to install bathroom light fixtures, but just how much does it cost to change a light fixture?
The average cost to change a light fixture is similar to the average cost to install bathroom light fixtures.
Let’s assume you’re looking to replace a light fixture with another light fixture that costs $150. On top of this initial cost, electricians will charge a service fee that covers the first 30 minutes, typically around $80-$120. Hourly rates average in at around $80 for any time needed thereafter.
Therefore, to change a light fixture, you’re looking at $150 for the light itself, $100 for the service fee, and an hourly rate of $80, adding up to $330.
Again, these are rough average figures. Are you looking for a more specific figure when it comes to changing or installing bathroom light fixtures?
