Updating a light fixture in a bathroom

My second favorite is the other clear glass one with the bubbles in it, but that was John’s least favorite so it’s a no-go.

Like the ones on this light fixture (which is well out of our price range at each – we need two): Oh well…I think I’m going to try Home Depot in the hopes that they have a more contemporary selection of globes before I pick up the grooved ones from Lowe’s.Outdated builder-grade light fixtures do nothing to enhance the appeal of a property.Homeowners are sometimes reluctant to follow through on this recommendation because they don’t want to spend money hiring an electrician to install new fixtures, or deal with drywall patching and the other minor repairs that often go along with the process of replacing a fixture.Remove any screws holding the light base to the wall.Once the old light is completely removed, determine whether there is an existing electrical box. Adding one now is smart for structural reasons as well as electrical safety.Fortunately, there are a variety of relatively pain-free options for dealing with this home staging challenge.

Let’s talk about four of options for updating your outdated fixtures.

At about for 6 of the globes, we’d be saving a lot of money since most of the fixtures I’ve seen are about that much for one – But I’m still not sold yet…

During my time as a home stager, one of the most common recommendations I made during the staging consultation process was to “update your light fixtures”.

Ceiling boxes are available as shallow as ½” for placement right over a structural unit like our large mirror.

If your light is not at a wall stud, an “old work” renovation boxes are available with swing out tabs to mount directly to the drywall.

Check all wires as some wiring conventions allow the hot wire color to vary (three way switches and fans); always use insulated tools and wear insulated gloves if possible. Be careful as they may be hot and stubborn ones can break off in the socket base.
