When you’re building a new home, your imagination can run wild! What kind of kitchen counters, the prettiest beige carpet, or the light fixtures are all huge decisions. What we don't think about however, are the fun things to do with the electrical outlets! This is the perfect time to add and move things to your liking- most people buy a home and suffer with too few outlets, or badly located ones.
Consider: Does your family go all out for Christmas or holiday decorations? Maybe adding a few well placed extra outlets will save you some headaches this season. Does your son play video games on the TV? Having that extra 3rd and 4th outlet can make the difference between unplugging the DVD player every time, and easily hook their system up. It is also the perfect time to plan a killer sound system!
One noticeable area is the computer room or section of your home. If you have a printer, computer, wireless router, and other gadgets - you’re looking at a shortage of outlets! It’s simple enough to fix this at new construction time, and much safer than having extension cords throughout the home.
If you have the opportunity to build your dream home, make sure it lives up to every expectation - including the small details! Contact John's Electric with any questions, or help in designing the perfect plug in oasis!
