I currently have the floorboards up this week and i was wondering how to get access to the downstairs light ceiling rose box in hallway, kitchen, utility room etc from downstairs. The ceiling rose is located in such a place i wouldnt be able to access if the floorboards were not up.

So what i was thinking was to extend the wire using either a inline junction box or wago connector. Replace the ceiling rose with wago connectors close to a recessed light fitting. I can then with the extra cable pull the recessed light down with the ceiling rose for easy access?

I do not think using wago connectors to extend wire and then wago connector again to replace a ceiling rose is good practice?

Does anyone have any hints or tips which might help me get to my ceiling rose from downstairs when it is in a bad location.

I assume with a recessed light all you do is pull it down to remove or must you some how push up the springy metal bars?

Ignore this i used a junction box to extend the wires, fixed it to a joist and then went converted the ceiling rose thing into a wago connector box and had 3 wires coming out into the light fitting.
