Remodeling Your Property's Bathroom? 3 Things To Talk To Your Electrician About

Posted on

If you own a commercial property that hasn't been updated in years, then maybe now is a perfect time. One of the first places that a lot of tenants and customers see is the communal restrooms. To make sure that your restrooms look nice and updated, having them gutted and remodeled is one of the best things that you can do. Not only will you need to hire a plumber, designer, and tile person, but you will also need to employ an electrician. The fun thing about electrical work in a public restroom is that it can make an impact on how the whole bathroom looks and functions. This article will take a closer look at three things for you to talk to your commercial electrician about. Are you ready to learn some more? If so, then read on. 

Overhead Lighting

If you still have fluorescent lighting inside of the restrooms, you should take them out and have your commercial electrician put in some recessed lighting instead. Recessed lighting will transform the entire look and feel of your restroom and make it look more updated. Just make sure that you have enough cans throughout the restroom so that everything is illuminated. One idea is to make sure that every bathroom stall has an overhead can above it, but make sure that it's up to code. 

Sconce Lighting

If there is one popular trend in lighting right now it's sconces. Sconces are fun because they can add a sort of architectural element to just about any space. Talk to both your designer and your electrician about putting sconce lighting above every mirror in the restroom. 

Hand Dryers

Another thing that you will need help with is electric hand dryers. Not only are paper towels expensive to offer everyone nut they aren't good for the environment either. When you get a commercial grade hand dryer, you may have to pay more money up front but, in the long run, it should save you money. Just make sure that your electrician sets everything up so that you have enough power to it. 

As you can see, these are just a few different things that you can do to make your commercial bathroom look nice and put together. To learn more, reach out to a commercial electrician near you and have them check out your property and give you a concrete bid on how much everything will cost.
