Bathroom Remodels

Bathroom Remodels

When you are ready to remodel and upgrade that old bathroom, SME Inc of Seattle is your electrical contractor of choice for the electrical design and electrical installation. Remodeling a bathroom is almost as large an undertaking as remodeling a kitchen. An upgraded bathroom can also have a significantly positive effect on your home's property value.

Before beginning a bathroom remodel (or any remodel, for that matter), it is very important to understand your budget and your goals – and to make sure they are not in conflict with each other. Electrical design and installation plans should take into account functionality, aesthetics, and include a list of both need-to-have and nice-to-have items.

Light fixtures around the vanity mirror come in all shapes and sizes and act as a focal point of any bathroom. All bathroom receptacles must be GFCI protected electrical circuits, you may need to run a new dedicated GFCI circuit depending on the age of your home and the extent of your remodel. Dimming switches for vanity lights and shower lights can enhance the enjoyment of your newly remodeled room.

Properly ventilating your new bathroom is very important as well. SME can help with properly sizing the exhaust fan taking into account the size of the room. Some exhaust fans come with built in lights and heaters. Exhaust fans with built in heaters sometimes require the addition of an electrical circuit from your electrical panel.

Luxury items you may want to consider include in-floor electric radiant heat, electric toe-kick heaters under the main cabinet, an electric towel warmer, an electric heated toilet seat, and an electrical steam generator in your shower. Another nice idea is to install electrical low voltage lighting under the main cabinet ledge near the floor. Add a motion sensor switch and you have great night lighting – soft and reflected off the floor.

Bathroom remodels require considerable coordination between the electrical contractor, plumbing contractor, general construction contractor, and others. SME Inc of Seattle's team of experienced residential electricians has the expertise to help make your bathroom remodel vision a reality. From evaluating your current home wiring situation, to making electrical design recommendations, to suggesting appropriate electrical products such as plugs, switches, outlets, light fixtures, heaters, and other items, the electrical professionals at SME will help you make your bathroom remodel a resounding success.
