4 reasons why it’s important that your electrician has an eye for design

When building or remodeling your home, you might not realize that your electrician needs to have an eye for design. After all their job is to run wire and provide power. But the truth is that lighting can make or break a space and outlet placement is more important than you might think. Here are a few reasons why we care about design.

Lighting is paramount

Lighting is an extremely important element in a space and there are A LOT of options. Are you going to have dimmable lights? How are you layering the lighting? What kinds of accent and task lighting will you have? What about brightness and color? We have suggestions based on your space and know about different lighting options available. This is the time to explore all the possibilities and we can assist you in creating your customized plan.

Outlet placement

Have you ever went to plug something in and couldn’t find an outlet anywhere? Or maybe you just bought a new house and you look around and realize that none of the outlets in the room are where you need them. The outlets may be placed to code but you can tell that no thought went into them. It’s important to think about this ahead of time because after construction is finished moving or adding outlets is more expensive. When we are onsite, we want to know where you will be plugging in lamps, appliances and Christmas lights. The time to think about how you will be utilizing the space is before you are living in it.

Smart home systems

Did you know that electrical contractors are often the ones who install smart home systems? But we do more than just install them. Whether you are considering smart lighting, automated shades or smart security, we are ready to design your customized system, install it and show you how to use it.

Ideas from an expert

Think about how many houses our electricians have wired in their careers. Who better to ask for advice than someone who has seen the lighting in so many different kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms? We may have ideas that you haven’t thought about. When we do the initial walkthrough with you, we like to talk through your ideas and ours and come up with the perfect game plan for your space. This alleviates you saying “do whatever” and then regretting not giving it more thought after your project is finished.

We are very proud to say we were nominated for the Lutron Excellence Award! This is an international award given for the very best in lighting and smart home design. We pride ourselves on being a step above. We don’t come in and do the minimum by wiring strictly to code. We love designing and creating the best possible lighting and smart home systems for your home or business. As always, we hope we’ve made your day brighter!
