Customizing Your Home’s Electrical Layout

In today’s homes, where electronic devices are integral to our daily lives, the placement and availability of electrical outlets can significantly impact both the functionality and safety of our living spaces. At Turn It On Electric, we understand the evolving electrical needs of modern homes. We’ll delve into the process and benefits of customizing your home’s electrical layout through professional outlet installation and movement.

The Need for Adequate and Strategically Placed Outlets

Convenience and Accessibility – The demand for electrical outlets has increased with the proliferation of electronic devices. Adequate outlets, strategically placed, can significantly enhance the convenience and accessibility of power in your home.

Reducing Reliance on Extension Cords – Over-reliance on extension cords not only creates clutter but also poses a tripping hazard and can be a fire risk if used improperly. Adding more outlets helps reduce this dependency, thereby improving safety.

Adapting to Lifestyle Changes – As your family grows or lifestyle changes, your power needs may evolve. Whether it’s setting up a home office, a gaming room, or a home theater, customizing your outlet placement can cater to these specific needs.

The Preparations

  • Assessment and Planning – The first step involves a professional assessment of your current electrical system’s capacity and layout. This helps in determining the optimal locations for new outlets or the feasibility of moving existing ones.
  • Ensuring Code Compliance – Any changes to your home’s electrical system need to comply with local building codes and safety standards. Professional electricians like those at Turn It On Electric ensure all installations and modifications meet these regulations.


  • For new outlets, this may involve cutting into drywall, running new wiring, and installing new outlet boxes.
  • Moving an outlet typically requires rerouting existing wiring and possibly patching up the former outlet location.
  • Safety Checks: Post-installation, it’s essential to conduct thorough safety checks to ensure all new and moved outlets are functioning correctly and safely.

Benefits of Professional Outlet Installation and Movement

Enhanced Safety: Properly installed and strategically located outlets help mitigate risks of electrical fires and accidents.

Increased Home Value: Homes with sufficient, conveniently located outlets are more appealing to potential buyers, potentially increasing the property’s market value.

Customized Solutions: Whether it’s USB-equipped outlets in your home office or GFCI outlets in bathrooms and kitchens, custom installations can cater to specific requirements.

Peace of Mind: Knowing that your home’s electrical system has been professionally assessed and upgraded provides peace of mind regarding the safety and efficiency of your power access points.
