Lighting and Electrical Considerations for Vancouver Home Renovation

If you are planning a Vancouver home renovation, and hope to include electrical repair or electrical services in your project, you will want to hire a certified electrical technician and a team of residential electrical contractors to handle that aspect of your project for you. Electricity is not to be taken lightly, as it can often be the most dangerous aspect of any Vancouver home renovation. In addition to keeping you safe, a Vancouver electrician will also make sure that your renovation is completed in the most efficient, aesthetic, and affordable way possible. What follows are a few electrical considerations brought to you by the professional home electricians at Wireman Electric. Here are things to keep in mind as you move forward with your Vancouver home renovation.

Outlet Placement

Seemingly a small detail, strong outlet placement throughout your home will make a huge difference and can be a real challenge to change once your renovation is complete. Consider where you need access to electricity currently and where you may want it in the future, and consult with your certified electrical technician to create an outlet map.

Get Creative

It is easy for homeowners to fall in line and choose the simplest lighting design or fixtures. Unfortunately, this often leads to boredom and dissatisfaction. As you work with your service electrician, don’t be afraid to ask about alternative solutions to see if you can find something a bit more unique and quirky that fits both your functional and aesthetic needs.

Don’t Forget About Exterior Lighting

Certainly, the interior of your home is important, but as long as you have residential electrical contractors working with you be sure to examine your exterior lighting as well. Tasteful lighting outside of your home can open up a world of opportunities in terms of enjoying your yard, porch, or balcony and things like motion sensor lights can do wonders to improve safety and security.

Build a Balance

While your Vancouver electrician is sure to be trained in the means and methods of safe electrical installation, they will also have great eyes for design and balance when it comes to rewiring or relighting your home. Lean on electrical services professionals to help you build the perfect balance between over-lighting and under-lighting, function and fashion, and budget and design.

Be Mindful of your Budget

Speaking of budget, the overall cost of a home renovation is certainly something to consider and will likely require you to prioritize some projects over others. After establishing a rough budget for yourself, be transparent with your home electricians to get a better understanding of what is and is not feasible. This will help you formulate a plan and decide what features or additions you would like to include in the final renovation.
