3 way switch change to independent light

Post by Jeremyq » Thu Dec 06, 2018 5:03 pm

Doing a basement reno qhere I'm adding a bedroom. Currently, the light in the soon to be bedroom is controlled by a 3 way switch at the top of the stairs as well as just outside where the bedroom will be. I need to have a new, independent light and switch in the bedroom and move the 3 way switch controlling the rest of the lights out of that room. Any help or advice is greatly appreciated

We will need a bit more info. Pics would be helpful too.

You can move the existing switch (3way), either re route the wiring, or extend from that location.

For the new switch, do you know where the power is coming from, or do you need guidance on that too ?
