One of the fastest ways to upgrade the look and feel of a room is to update its fixtures. Many Brooklyn homes have gorgeous installations that looked incredible in their day, but they are now struggling with issues with wear-and-tear.
King Installation can remove the outdated fixture, replace it with something new to love, and help your home shine brightly.

Benefits of Hiring a Licensed Contractor
When you have an electrical need at home, hiring a licensed contractor to resolve your issue provides several advantages. The first and most important benefit is that you receive liability protection if something happens.
Here are some additional reasons why hiring King Installation is a beneficial choice.
- Best Practice Familiarity. Our well-vetted technicians are required to complete ongoing education classes to remain up-to-date on the industry’s best practices and safety expectations.
- Coding Guarantees. We meet or exceed all of NYC’s building code standards for our fixture installation services.
- Permit Acquisition. Only licensed contractors can acquire the permits needed to change specific fixtures in your home. If you take the DIY approach or hire someone outside of that framework, it can affect your property’s future value.

FAQ About Light Fixture Installation Services in Brooklyn
The most common question we get asked about light fixtures involves the type that should get installed. It depends on what your goals are for the room in question.
Overhead lighting requires a single or group of fixtures that illuminate the intended area. You can choose accent, ambient, or task lighting to create one specific bright area.
We can install flush-mount, chandelier, pendant, and fan-light combinations with a standard junction box and accompanying hardware. Our team can also handle track and recessed lighting with their specialized mounting.
Do I need to hire an electrician to install light fixtures?
As a general rule, unless you have familiarity with electricity, light fixture installation is a job best left to a professional contractor. Even if the wiring and switches are already present, our team ensures that the work is done safely and correctly.
How long does it take to install a light fixture?
Most light fixture tasks get completed within 1-2 hours. If you are replacing an old fixture in your Brooklyn home with a new one, it may take less time. When new wiring is necessary to complete the work, it could take up to a full day. Variables with this task include its location, the challenges of connecting or running wires, and overall panel access. Even high ceilings can increase the time it takes to install a light fixture.
How much does it cost to install a light fixture?
You’ll find a lot of websites saying that it costs about $100 to install a new light fixture. An honest answer has more complexity. Each job is a little different, which means the price often changes from home-to-home or between offices. We’d be happy to provide you with a no-obligation quote for your project.
Can I use YouTube how-to videos?
Some homeowners with DIY skills use online guides and videos to complete the fixture installation work. If you’re replacing an older one, it may be as simple as disconnecting and reconnecting the wires. Will you know if your Brooklyn home is up to code when you complete that task? Could you recognize a possible short hazard in that situation? That’s why many homeowners rely on the expertise of a professional installer.
