Planning Electrical Outlets in Your New Home or Renovation

People who go ahead with the option of building their smart home instead of buying one, they already work very closely with some of the most experienced contractors, builders, and designers. There might be times some things might get overlooked, and it’s not until long after they had already moved and have well adjusted to the house realise that they should have been more present during the planning phase when it came to certain things which include places to access electrical power in their house.

In order to avoid messy extension cords and power bars, take the time and think about where exactly you would want to have easy access to electricity in your home. Some of the places you should consider:

Kitchen

It doesn’t matter if you are living alone, with friends or family, this is one place that you will keep coming back to, be it to make food, get something to drink, or bake. This is a great place to start this process and plan outlets all around the kitchen for beaters, mixers, and other small but important electrical appliances. After you are done taking a long look at the kitchen layout, put your higher amperage plugs wherever you have placed your refrigerator and microwave. Then, place power outlet underneath your cabinets that cost virtually nothing to leave on all night long.

Living Room

We live in a digital world, so it goes without saying that there is at least one device that needs frequent charging, so put electrical outlets in all corners and maybe put more outlets in the centre of each wall. For instance, if you are planning to hang a flat-screen TV on a wall, then what you can do is place a plug directly behind it to hide the cords. You can also opt for in-floor plugs in the center of the living room if you feel like putting a coffee table for mementos. 

Bathroom 

Most electricians only use GFI rated plugs around water, but think about your location first. Have them install the plugs near where the appliances are placed. Using stretching cords across a sink is not just extremely dangerous but is also very inconvenient.

Bedrooms

Once you have figured out where you want to place your bed, then the next step is to put plugs near the nightstand, which should be about two feet above the baseboard if you want to hide the cords. Place these plugs on a 3-way switch, so one switch inside the door will turn the lights on, and then two more on either side of the headboard so that you and your partner can turn the lights on/off without getting up.

Conclusion

Plan ahead

It is always beneficial to plan so that you know exactly where you want your plugs to be and make sure that your electrician provides you with an electrical service box that at least has six empty locations for future expansion. We hope that this article helped you get a better understanding of the situation.
