How Much to Install Electric Box and Chandelier

ms222May 15, 2012

I want to add a chandelier over the dining table, but there is no cut out right now for electrical thats existing. I do have attic access to walk to, and in the same ceiling there is recessed lighting already in place.

If I want an electrician to install electric to hang the chandelier, add a light switch, and install the chandelier, how much should I be looking at in price?

Depending on where you live, if the light wattage is low enough to be added to the existing circuit, and how large/heavy the light fixture is----between $200 and $500.

If the light power requirements are too high to be added, the cost goes way up, since a new circuit will need to be added.
