Fed Up Of Your Small Living Room? 3 Transformational Electrical Upgrades To Save Space

Your living room is usually the first place you entertain guests. You probably also use it to display some of your most valuable possessions like paintings and sculptures. With the rising cost of real estate in the country, homes have become more expensive, while space has drastically reduced. Managing your space intelligently is not just about making changes to your décor. You can also make upgrades to your electrical lights to help you maximise your existing living room space. Hire an electrician for undertaking these transformational electrical upgrades in your living room.

Add Recessed Lighting To Avoid Protrusions

Lamps, lights and other electrical fixtures can take up a lot of space in a small living room, so recessed light fixtures are excellent additions. Recessed lights are fixtures integrated into hollow openings in ceilings or sidewalls to avoid outward protrusions. Because they are embedded into the surface, they produce a neat and uninterrupted look for the living room without taking up any space. This means that you can get rid of space-consuming lights and lamps to make your living room bigger. You can choose different types of recessed lights for diverse functions. For example, adjustable recessed lighting allows you to bend the light to any point. Reflective trim lights are extremely bright and will reflect off surfaces to make the space appear bigger and brighter.

Mount Bulky Televisions on Walls To Free Up Floor Space

Most living rooms come with televisions, but these large appliances take up more space than necessary. You can get your television mounted on a wall to get rid of any big tables that act as the base for it. This will help you free up considerable floor space. The television needs to be connected to a power outlet to run, so keep in mind that you may need to account for an additional electrical outlet to accommodate wires. You will need to hire an electrician to install these outlets for using your television.

Upgrade Your Outlets To Use Sleeker Varieties

Bulky electrical outlets and protruding switchboards will prevent you from placing your furniture items snugly against walls, taking up more space than needed. A good idea to eliminate this problem would be to install sleeker, upgraded outlets embedded into walls to reduce their outward space. You can also get the electrician to install expanded outlets, allowing you to plug in a variety of appliances into one zone, instead of having multiple outlet areas taking up space.   

While smart decorative choices are important for small living rooms, these electrical upgrades can also help you save space. Work with your electrician to smartly avoid space-consuming electrical nuisances.

About Me

Learning from Worldwide Lighting Strategies

Hi, my name is Kat. When I was a kid, I always followed around my dad as he worked on electrical projects, and I became very interested in it. When I went backpacking during a gap year, I noticed that people all over the world have different ways of harnessing and using light. I decided to integrate those ideas into my own conception of electricity. Now, I help my friends design their lighting for their new homes and I do a bit of consulting. However, I also love to write so I started this blog. Please, explore and enjoy reading! Welcome to my space of the internet!
