Reassessing the electrical setup of a kitchen is often part of the remodelling process and rearranging outlets, lighting and appliances will help improve and freshen up your space, and will provide you with a better layout that is more suitable for your preferences and needs.
Rewiring a kitchen is a challenging process that requires the assistance of a professional and licensed electrician who can ensure the job is being done right, as this type of work can be dangerous and should not be attempted alone. If a new electrical setup for your kitchen is something you’re interested in, the following tips can help you plan the rewiring process so that you can proceed with this project successfully:
Consider the different types of lighting
There are a number of different kitchen lighting options and rewiring will allow you to use a combination of styles to provide your kitchen with multiple options to brighten up your space. It’s important to place lighting strategically in all the right areas where you cook, prepare food and work most often so that you can make the most out of your space. You can also incorporate accent lighting, which will illuminate specific décor elements or design features that you’d like to emphasize. Every aspect of lighting must be planned in advance so that electricians know exactly what to do during the kitchen remodel. It will also allow them to provide easy access to all of the light switches related to every fixture and will ensure it all makes sense so that your kitchen is practical.
Be mindful of appliance wiring
Every large appliance in a kitchen must have its own dedicated circuit and planning the placement and sizes of every one of your appliances in advance is very important. Remodelling gives homeowners the opportunity to move appliances around to make their kitchen more convenient and they can be incorporated into your countertop and cabinetry designs. Electricians can help you plan the proper placement of all of your appliances.
Plan your kitchen outlet placements carefully
Incorporating several electrical receptacles in your kitchen will prevent you from having to constantly unplug small appliances whenever an outlet is needed. An electrician will help you space them out properly along with your countertops so that no one area of the kitchen becomes cluttered with electrical devices. Prior to installing new countertops and backsplashes, you must plan for the number of outlets you desire so that you’re not frustrated later on.
