How do I move a light switch?


To move a light switch, start by turning off the power to the switch at the beaker. Remove the switch from the wall and then drill a hole where the switch will be moved and then trace the electric outlet. Put in a wire into a box, install the box and strip it. Take off all the wires from the old box and put them in the new box then patch the drywall. Lastly, install a blank outlet cover to the old switch hole.
