However, upgrades don’t have to cost an arm and a leg in renovations. You can do it on the cheap by focusing on lighting and electrical upgrades to make your kitchen worthy of a MasterChef. Here’s how: 

Up your kitchen lighting game 

Kitchens require light – and a lot of it. The best kitchens feature a significant amount of light, of different intensities and coming from a range of sources. 

Introducing a few different lights here and there will always improve your kitchen, practically and aesthetically. 

lighting and electrical upgrades – such as updating your old lighting and adding accent lights in places such as over the oven and kitchen island – will warm up the space, while providing more visibility.  

For expert advice on layout and the best lighting to use, it’s always wise to consult with your lighting specialist and a licensed electrician.  

You can never have enough power points 

With so many appliances in use in today’s modern kitchens, this one’s a no-brainer. Long gone are the days when you had to make do with just two or three. 

However, when installing new power points around wet areas, it’s worth investing in ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) outlets, which have cut the number of home electrocutions in Australia by almost 50% in Australia.  

By upgrading to GFCI circuits, you aren’t just improving safety for those using your kitchen, but preventing electrical fires due to tripped circuit breakers. 

Modernise with USB ports 

With so many of our smart devices and even appliances requiring USB cables for charging and power delivery, why wouldn’t you install USB ports alongside your traditional power points. 

How else are you going to follow those all-important recipes on your tablet or smart speaker? 

Please remember to call in the lighting and electrical upgrades experts 

Electrical work is never a job for the do-it-yourself types. In fact, it’s illegal. 

To make sure that all electrical work done follows the residential safety specifications in Victoria, you’ll require the services of a licensed electrician. 

Yes, it’s an added expense, but when it comes to the safety of your family and friends, it is money worth spending.
