Light up your kitchen in Addison & Richardson

Posted on March 3, 2011

In many families the kitchen is not just a place to prepare food, but also a gathering place. Many families bond over the hours spent preparing a meal together, playing games at the kitchen table, or just hanging out together at the island while waiting for dinner. Kitchens are also a major selling point for a home on the market; many people can make a decision to purchase a home just based on the style of the kitchen alone.

With the kitchen being such an important part of the home, it just makes sense to accentuate it as much as possible. Whether your kitchen in large or small, good kitchen lighting can make a tremendous difference. Consider installing under cabinet lights, as well as recessed lighting or can lights. Pantry lighting is also helpful, whether you have a walk-in pantry or a closet pantry. A chandelier mounting or ceiling fan mounting over the kitchen table can also make a cozier environment, and give additional light for tasks like homework and paying bills.

Kitchen electrical also has special considerations. It is generally a good idea to install a dedicated circuit or dedicated plug for larger electronic appliances, like the fridge, oven, dishwasher or microwave. Also consider replacing standard kitchen outlets with GFCI outlets. These will automatically cut the power if an interruption in the power flow is detected, and prevent any family members from receiving injury from a nasty shock.
