5 Amazing Electrical Upgrades For Your Kitchen

By January 2, 2019Electrical

A kitchen remodel is an exciting renovation that can completely refresh one of the most used rooms in your house. New cupboards, white goods, appliances and benches can all go a long way to improve the overall feeling and impact of your home. But what about electricals?
Electrical upgrades such as switching and lighting can not only lift the aesthetics of your kitchen but can also improve its practicality.

Electrical upgrades are a great way to boost the looks and functionality of your kitchen. Here are some great additions you should consider.


USB Outlets

Everyone has had those mornings, you need to boil a kettle, put toast on and use the juicer at the same time. But what if you need to charge your phone? No one has time to rearrange power outlets, so one solution is to install a panel of USB outlets in your kitchen. With all the USB reliant devices in modern households, a dedicated outlet can make charging a breeze. Simply install next to your bench space and you’ll never need an adapter again.

Concealed Outlets

Traditional outlets are so… traditional. If you want to go a step further to improve the aesthetic appeal of your kitchen there are many options for your power outlets.

Pop-up outlets are a great choice for the clutter conscious. They stay hidden in the bench until you need an extra appliance, all you need to do is hit the button and it’s there.

Recessed outlets are awesome if you are short of bench space. Those extra few centimetres taken up by plugs at the back of the appliance can be a real nuisance and dangling cords can sure be unsightly. Recessed outlets allow you to tuck them into the wall for a flush fit.

Under cabinet outlets can make your walls look less cluttered and can also give you easy access for appliances without any loose cords.

Pantry Lights

Perfect for finding that obscure spice right at the back of the shelf, pantry lights can be made to automatically switch on when the door is opened and turn off again when you’re done. Walk-in pantries can even be fitted with motion sensors!

Baseboard Lights

Overhead lights are great for cooking, but what if you need a midnight snack? Baseboard lights illuminate the skirting or baseboard just above your floor, giving you just enough light to make it through the hallway to the fridge.

Stylised Light Switches

Not a lot of people are aware that light switches can come in many shapes and sizes. They don’t have to be the standard white-on-white finish that are fitted in most houses. Designer light switches can be tailored to suit any kitchen aesthetic. Need blue to suit your splash-backs? No a problem. What about stainless steel or stone to suit your finishes? Consider it done.
