When you’re trying to remodel your kitchen, you need to avoid getting tunnel vision. It’s easy to fixate on the look of the sinks, countertops, and backsplashes. That said, you can’t forget about other vital elements of a kitchen remodel that will help you wow your visitors this summer. How often do you wish you had some recessed lighting in your kitchen? Here are some ways to make the most of it.
Things to Remember
Before you can get started on adding recessed lighting to your kitchen, there are a few things you must take into account. For example, make sure you have a lighting cable that is at least fifteen feet longer than what you expect to need. You also need to make sure you only fit one or two cables into each drilled hole that you’ve made to accommodate the new wires. Make sure all wires and cables are steady and aren’t showing signs of wear and tear that could lead to loose wires and flickering lights.
Make a Plan
Next, you’ll have to come up with a solid plan. As with all home improvement projects, having a plan will prevent you from getting distracted. When you stay on track, you can make sure you don’t overspend or allow the project to run behind schedule. Figure out the dimensions of your kitchen, as the kitchen in your apartment might not the same size as the one in your townhouse, even if you are still in the same development. Make sketches of where the furniture is, and any other decorations you’ll keep once the kitchen is finished. Then, think about what you want the recessed lighting to do: more light for food preparation if you’re slicing fruits, veggies, cheese, and meats? Or for adding emphasis to something you keep in the kitchen cabinets that you want to show off? Once you answer these questions and have your plan in hand, it’s time to figure out where the electrical circuit is.
Locate the Circuit
Locating the circuit is critical to the whole process. Without it, you won’t have any power for your new recessed lights. Look for a so-called hot wire, and always turn off the power supply before you start working with electrical systems. If any at any point you’re unsure of how to continue, or simply don’t want to, then you can depend on the professionals here at Capital Remodeling to help you choose the best recessed lighting for your new-look kitchen instead.
