Cost to add recessed lighting
We are having our kitchen remodeled so we want to take the opportunity while the walls are open to add 6 recessed lights into the adjacent living room.
I would have hoped the cost to be a few hundred dollars as the walls are all exposed and running cables won't be very difficult.
The quote for 6 recessed lights (using the existing switch) was $1,150. This is from the electrician who is already doing the kitchen electrics.
I know I should be getting comparitive quotes but we just don't have time as the kitchen wall is being sheetrocked in a couple of days.
I'm in New York City suburbs so I realise labor costs are high, but just didn't think it would be this much. Does it sound reasonable?
