“Everything happens in the kitchen. Life happens in the kitchen.”
– Andrew Zimmern
Many components go into a major kitchen remodel project. That’s because not only does your kitchen contain everything that is needed to prepare meals, it’s also the centre of communications. A well-planned, modern kitchen gives your family home a focus and a direction.
At Vittetoe Electric, we understand that responsible kitchen design is the key to unlocking a family space that works for every member of your household. We’ve put together our top 5 electrical considerations when it comes to remodelling a kitchen:
Our certified electrician must follow code when creating the layout and will be able to advise further for your individual household needs. We recommend that you list all your appliances to our electrician before the remodel so that they can advise if you require more circuits if necessary.
How does a GFCI work? The GFCI will “sense” the variation in the amount of electricity flowing into the circuit to that flowing out, even in amounts of small current. The GFCI then reacts swiftly to trip or shut off the circuit.
If your kitchen does not already have GFCI outlets fitted, Vittetoe Electric will make sure this happens during the remodel.
DON’T leave your lighting until last.
Lighting is often an overlooked element in a kitchen design, yet with the proper laying of light you can create the perfect atmosphere for any time of day. As well as ensuring that all light fixtures are safe and stationed away from the sink, Vittetoe Electric can help visualise your lighting plans.

No matter urgent any electrical repairs seem, it’s never okay to attempt to handle them on your own. Trying to take care of electrical problems without professional training is extremely dangerous. If you or someone else aren’t hurt during your attempt, there’s still a chance that you’ve left something undone that poses a huge risk to you, your home, or your family. In fact, faulty electrical wiring is the number one cause of house fires in the United States, according to the National Fire Protection Agency. So in order to make sure that your home is safe, rely on a professional for any electrical services.
