Important Electrical Considerations for New Construction Homes

Published on September 24th, 2020

Building your dream home should be just as much about aesthetics as it is functionality. One piece of the puzzle that you may not have previously considered for your home build is its electrical system. How your home is wired is a more serious consideration than other variables such as paint colors or other finishes.

Keep these tips in mind from our electricians serving Kenilworth and surrounding areas.

Don’t Overdo It

It’s important to consider the functionality of each room before you jump into picking out the type of lighting you want. Different rooms are used for different reasons and should therefore have different lighting considerations. This also means that not every room needs to have incredible lighting. Don’t forget to factor in natural light as well.

Mix Lighting Solutions Together

We encourage you to choose a variety of lighting options for your new space. From sconces to under-cabinet lighting to dimmers, having multiple solutions mixed together can create a warm, inviting space.

Make It Automated

A little bit of automation, especially with any exterior lighting that you are designing, is helpful. You can also add in sensors on the interior of your home such as when you open the butler’s pantry. These small details can help make your house feel more like home.

Pick a Stylish Switch

Lightswitch options have come a long way since they first hit the market. Now, you can find switches that add style to your home.

Walk Through & Experience It

If you can be around during the planning stage, you can work closely with our electrician near Kenilworth to help ensure your home’s new lighting system is functioning just as you thought it would. It’s better to make changes early instead of when it will cause major disruptions.

We are looking forward to helping you with your upcoming new construction project! Get in touch with our team to learn more about how we can help with your electrical needs.
