Have you ever walked up to a shelf or opened a cabinet and wished someone would shed some light on which item you should choose … literally? Even with overhead lighting on tabletop lamps, it can sometimes be difficult to see into the recesses of built-in furniture. You always have the option of holding a flashlight between your teeth, but adjusting your home electrical and lighting plan to include lights in these areas is much more convenient. Consider whether you would like to include lights in each nook of your bookshelf or in the cabinet under your kitchen sink, for instance. It is also a good idea to prepare electrical access for televisions or other appliances that you would like to house inside built-in furniture. You will be surprised by how much some small lights added to shadowy places can brighten up your home.
