Kitchens are the busiest room within a house when it comes to anything electrical and appliances located there often require the most load and power requirement. This needs to be factored in when making sure all the electrical appliances and items are all in the right positions. Our kitchen designer will work with you in the planning of all electrical and plumbing points, and best locations to suit your needs.
Above worktop Sockets
There are usually two types of electrical socket outlets located around your kitchen, there are the sockets above your kitchen worktops and sockets below your worktops. The sockets positioned above your worktops are typically used for your everyday kitchen appliances like your microwave, toaster and kettle. These electrical socket outlets will be installed and positioned at suitable heights and locations, all depending on your particular kitchen design layout.
Below worktops and inside cupboard Sockets
The other types of electrical sockets in your kitchen will be positioned underneath worktops and counters. These would be most often used for your fixed, free-standing appliances. These electrical plug outlets for the white goods are positioned in cupboard units next to the relevant appliance. This would cover all appliances such as ovens, fridges, fridge freezers, washing machines, integrated microwaves and tumble dryers. These will be made accessible inside cupboards in case you need to remove or isolate them at any time in the future.
Cooker, hob and oven electrical circuits.
Another kitchen electrical area that our customers often become confused about is the cooker circuits. This all depends on the Kilo-wattage of your cooker hob and oven. you might need a dedicated circuit installed as they most often do require a lot more power which can be too much for your normal and standard kitchen circuit.
If one of your appliances requires a dedicated electrical circuit it will also need an isolation switch, theses can be fitted either above or below your counter worktops. Any type of isolation switch would need to be in an accessible position below the worktops or inside your cupboard.
You can really add life to your new kitchen but it needs to be factored into the design stage at the beginning of the project. When our designer visits your home just tell them what you would like to achieve and they will show you some options available to you. Lighting comes in all sorts of shapes, sizes and forms. It all depends on your budget, kitchen size and the look and mood that you would like to create.
Under cabinet Lighting
If you really want to impress and create that wow factor in your kitchen then under cabinet unit lighting can be organised within the design process. We can install all kinds of different types, colours and shades of lights. If you are interested please make sure to mention this in your free consultation meeting, as the necessary wiring needs to be set in place during the early stages of the kitchen installation. This will really set the mood and i have never met a customer that isn't delighted with the outcome after they have been fitted.
Downlighters will be a fantastic addition to your kitchen as they can be installed and positioned exactly where you would require lighting to be. They can certainly produce that modern, elegant contemporary look. Spotlights, downlights whatever you want to call them can provide and inject some ambient light into corners of darkness or totally light up a room. As they are installed and located in your ceiling it is not uncommon for them to be indiscreet until switched on and controlled by a dimmer switch, so you can have them on high or turn down lower for a more subtle kind of lighting. We offer a fine selection of downlighting which come in all sorts of different finishes like copper, nickel, chrome, polished and brushed steel. Most of our downlights can be adjusted to focus light to a chosen area of your kitchen, this way you can keep changing the look and mood, and of course, the bulbs can be changed for various colours and shades to suit your taste.
If you are thinking about the inclusion of a breakfast bar or even an island in your kitchen layout plan, then you may like to add some low hanging pendants, maybe 2 or 3, as these will produce a modern touch to that space. If you're planning to include a dining table as well within the kitchen area then you could also add a couple of lighting pendants above this table for extra effect. If budget is an issue with the extra rewire you may wish to think about installing a centrally positioned 6’ lighting designed pendant which can be later replaced with some kind of decorative style light fittings to your personal choice.
Kitchen Hoods and Extractor Units
Its always a wise move and a good option and is very often mandatory these days that there is a kitchen extractor fan or cooker hood installed within the kitchen, as these are fantastic units for removing any unwanted smells and odours within your kitchen area. Good quality cooker hoods and extractors often come with a built-in lighting system which is useful when you are cooking food. Modern extractor fans come with a number of speeds and different air extraction options. We offer all sorts of different models which will be offered to you during your FREE design consultation.
