Need suggestion .. squr hold in ceiling on stairwell
I bought a house and on the ceiling of the stairs going down to the basement there is a square hole with a junction box. I'd like to install some kind of lighting here, but not sure how to go about doing it. The picture tells the story. (I'm confident in my abilities to install light fixtures etc.. but not sure how I would install in this scenario.)
What you do will depend on the type of fixture you're installing and how big the hole is? It would help if you mentioned that.
You could probably install a surface mounted fluorescent, covering the hole. Fixtures smaller then the hole would require patching the sheetrock.
