Q: Can you fit bathroom lighting yourself?
A: "Due to the proximity to water sources, it is always advisable to seek the advice and skill of a trained professional. all electrical installations in wet spaces should be certified by a qualified electrician, in accordance with Part P of the building regulations and the 17th edition of 7671 requirements for electrical installations. Having lights set up in the bathroom without a certificate of installation can cause you problems further down the line and you might even find it difficult to sell your house. Regardless of how competent you are at DIY, it's always worth investing in certified trades to ensure all rules and regulations are adhered to and avoid potential costly or dangerous mistakes in the future. Look to trade bodies for professionals who have been vetted for reliability and skill and are subject to strict guidelines set by the organisation." - Marketa Rypacek, managing director, Industville Ltd
