If you are preparing a strategy to renovate your kitchen or planning to build a new one, consider the number of electrical equipment, sockets, switches, cords, plugs, etc. beforehand.
Kitchens in new buildings or apartments are designed on modern architecture so note the lights on the ceiling, cabinets, counter receptacles to run multiple appliances at once, and exclusive circuits for different appliances, for instance microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator, etc.
How to Decide on the Kitchen Lighting
With the advancement of technology and innovations, there are several lighting options available for you to choose from.
You can choose ambient lighting for ceiling-mounted fluorescent fixtures. Alternatively, you can mount a sequence of sunken canister lights or luminous fixtures. You can get better radiance with several tracks in case you want to use a track fixture and let it come from different directions. However, for wall cabinets and points upward, you can use cove lighting. To brighten particular spots or objects, use area or accent lighting. To highlight culinary or decorative plants, grow lightning is the best option.Get a quote
What Types of Light Switches Must Be Considered For Kitchen?
First, reflect on the location of each switch. Positioning switches near their lights is recommended and mostly near the entryways as these are the best locations from where you can easily turn on the lights. You can control the series of lights using three-way switches.
How Many Circuits Should You Install For Kitchen Appliances?
Depending upon the size and power of receptacles, there are separate circuits for refrigerators, microwaves, etc. Mostly, countertop receptacles use two circuits. Based on the areas, some receptacles are ground fault circuit interrupters and are 20-amp alternating circuits. They could also require two 15-amp circuits with non-ground fault circuit receptacles, sometimes based on local codes. Considering your local codes is important here.
What Type Of Wiring For Kitchen Appliances Should You Opt?
The 240-volt circuit is ideally wired to the electric range, ovens, or cooktops. For other appliances, a 120-volt circuit is wired. When wiring for garbage disposer, the under sink receptacle is split into two. One plug is switched while the second remains hot to plug in a hot water dispenser and garbage disposer. Alternatively, it could be hard-wired into a switched box by placing the switch on the wall near to sink. A separate circuit for the dishwasher could be mounted. If you want to use the same circuit as that of the garbage disposer, then you can go for that. Typically, it is recommended to hard-wire the range hood.
