Upgrade Your Electrical During Kitchen Renovation

Upgrade If your home was built more than 10 years ago, it probably doesn’t have enough outlets in the kitchen. That’s because older homes were designed to accommodate so many labor-saving electrical devices that today’s home cooks take for granted.

So if you are planning a kitchen renovation, it’s the perfect opportunity to add new electrical outlets, lighting, and other fixtures to expand your kitchen’s capacity for the next decade and beyond. At Mr. Kitchen, we can add as many new electrical fixtures as your kitchen needs — and build additional capacity for expansion.

New Kitchen, New Electrical

Putting in new electrical fixtures during a kitchen renovation is recommended because that’s probably the only time you are going to get unrestricted access to the conduits, boxes, and wiring. During a typical kitchen renovation, the drywall is removed and the space is demolished down to its bare studs. This exposes all of the electrical features, making it easy to add new ones and upgrade existing ones.

If you were to add electrical capacity in your kitchen at any other time than during a renovation, it likely would require tearing out walls or portions of walls to add the new conduit, junction boxes, and switches. But during a kitchen rehab, it’s already exposed so it’s the right time to do it.
