Better Too Many Outlets and Lights Than Too Few

January 12, 2011

Permanent light fixture locations are a straight jacket so when renovating provide a few too many.  Three “extra” lights installed during a full rehab cost as much as one retrofit into finished space.  Similarly that the extra outlet that goes unused only has its initial installation as part of its price tag so having too many outlets is not necessarily a bad thing given the fact that you’ll probably change the way your room is furnished and used several times over 20 years.  The lack of light or power access in a critical area can be more frustrating than costly and a home should be a place where frustration is minimized, not created.
