Before you finish those plans for your remodel, please, have a qualified lighting contractor review them. All too often, Vero Beach Electrical is called in after plans are finalized and sometimes not until drywall, cabinets, windows and floors have been installed. Why is that a problem? Let’s just say that it’s much less expensive to move things around before all of the walls and other fixtures are in place, then it is after.
As a great man once said, once the holes for the lighting are cut and the junction boxes are installed, it’s too late. Not everyone who builds or remodels homes is as well versed in lighting as we are. They might not understand where the best placement of work lights should be for how you use your kitchen. A run of lights down the middle of the room might be too much lighting in that area, and it may also cast shadows on your work areas.
If your lighting is too bright and you haven’t had dimmers installed, then you are going to be reluctant to use it. This could lead to injury and eye strain. Conversely, if lighting is not bright enough for you to see properly, that can cause problems as well.
There are several different categories of lighting and within those there are also different types of light bulb and fixtures which you can use. The final decision will depend upon your budget and your design. Sometimes you may have to pay a little more upfront, but over the long term you will save money. Everything depends upon your ultimate goal.
It really is important to call us in and let us get a feel for how you live and what your plan is. So remember, call us before you put those walls up.
