When it comes to minor electrical upgrades and remodeling projects, less is often more. That is, the less you can mess with the existing fixtures and wiring, the better.
If something is unsafe or improperly wired, of course, you should replace it. But if you just need to add a light here, an outlet there, it can pay to look for ways to streamline the process. So, you’ll find a number of ways to move or extend outlets or lights that aren’t all that hard. None of these electric remodel tips require an electrician, either.
