When it comes to a kitchen remodel, most people think of outlets and lights switches as an afterthought. While they are a necessity, they can sometimes be unsightly and detract from beautiful kitchen designs. Thanks to some great new items, outlets and light switches can now become an interesting part of your design that will add to the overall functioning of your new kitchen.
Light Switches – There are now flush mount switches that are as stylish as they are functional. These range from a simple push switch (no flip switches here), touch switches that require a touch of your finger tip, a tap switch that turns on/off with a tap of the finger, and even sensor switches where you wave your hand in front of the switch.
Outlets – Once something that could ruin the look of a gorgeous backsplash, outlets are now something to build in as part of the design. Pop-out outlets, for example, have smooth flush features enabling the outlet to remain hidden until you push it to reveal three plugs. There are also USB outlets that can make it easier to charge your devices while working in the kitchen.
Under-counter Tracks – These attach under your cabinet area and can be used to provide lighting, extra outlets, USB ports and iPad/iPhone cradles. They can be installed using an existing outlet to provide electricity to each cabinet section, or can be hardwired in for a completely smooth, unmarred backsplash.
Bluetooth is also a feature that can be added to allow you to control not just the lighting in your kitchen, but throughout the rest of your home. So, if you are updating or remodeling your kitchen area, remember to check out the new tech items available to make your kitchen high functioning, as well as beautiful.
