You’ll find these electrical tips easy and practical. At Laguna Electrical Services—an electrician Sunshine Coast residents rely on—we hope you find this advice empowering.
Add a switch or two beside your bed to control all the bedroom lighting. Place the switches above your bedside tables, within easy reach from the bed for you and your partner. On one plate, you could have two switches—one to control your reading lamp, the other for room lighting. The switch near the bedroom door can be wired similarly, allowing you to switch everything off as you leave. Another good bedside addition is a USB port on the power socket so you can charge your phone.
It’s all too easy to crowd your bedside table and all too common for a table lamp to end up as collateral damage. Consider bedside lights that are sconces, fixed to either the wall or bedhead, or perhaps hanging pendants.
Install electrical outlets inside your bathroom vanity’s top drawer. This will allow you to plug in and store hairdryers, electric toothbrushes, electric shavers, etc. Top drawer positioning is convenient—easy to reach and makes it possible to stand at the mirror.
Placement of light switches can be decided by walking through each room of your house and choosing the best positions. Average rooms need only one light switch. Hallways and staircases, one at each end. Every exit should have a light switch for both interior and exterior lights—front door, side, back, garage entrance/exit doors, and doors to decks and patios. So, you won’t need to fumble around in darkness to find the switch, closets, pantries, garages, attics, and basements should have their light switches on the outside. Motion-activated lights are another option for these spaces.
The best place for bathroom vanity lighting is on both sides of the mirror, and above and slightly in front of the mirror. Standing at the bathroom vanity, you do NOT want overhead lighting. That would cast shadows on your face, and you’d have a hard time shaving, applying makeup and doing your hair.
Make a definite plan for your dining table. Your lighting should be centred over the table, rather than centre of the room.
Ceiling fans, despite losing a little momentum in a market of air conditioners, are back, more beautiful than ever. They are practical, great value for money, mosquitoes hate them, and they are brilliant for covered spaces outdoors.
Power outlets in kitchens are not the best look and you would need a few of them, considering the average number of useful appliances. Add to that, the fact that power strips and liquids do not play well together. A great idea is to install your outlets and power strips out of harm’s way on the underside of upper cabinets. This is also a good location for under-cabinet lighting, illuminating your benches and food prep areas.
Putting a maintenance service agreement in place will make staying compliant with industry standards easy.
