Interior design and decor are important parts of a modern home. More than ever people are taking the idea that they should actually like their homes very seriously. It’s not that this hasn’t been the case in the past, of course, but with a rise in popularity of shows like Fixer Upper, Property Brothers, and the many different iterations of Flip or Flop, people all across the country are getting behind home renovations. For some it’s as simple as a fresh coat of paint and some new art for the walls; for others it’s all about knocking down walls, redoing exteriors, and taking on huge projects.

What does all of this have to do with your friendly local residential electrician, you ask? Well, to put it simply it’s the fact that we’d love to be a part of the next project you’re looking to undertake for your home. Whether that means installing new ceiling fans, upgrading your service panel, or getting some new outlets to accommodate your modern lifestyle, we can help.

In today’s post we’ll take a look at what we can do to help make your home a better place to live in one of the most important rooms in the house–your living room. Keep reading to learn more!

Is Television the Center of Your Living Room?

For quite some time people turned their noses up at the idea that a television should take up space in a living area. The truth of the matter, however, is that films, television shows, and the news can play a huge part in our daily lives. This isn’t something to be upset about. Instead, it’s something that needs to be done the right way.

Whatever your daily media intake looks like, there’s no denying the fact that having a television in your home is a necessity. After all, watching a movie on your smartphone or tablet can get the job done, but did you really experience what you were watching? Probably not.

Make Your Living Room Look Put Together

The solution to television design woes then isn’t to get rid of your television, but instead to make sure to give it a proper place in your living space. A console, cabinet, or entertainment center will get the job done, but many fans of modern design will want the television to be hung on the wall. Thankfully this is easier than ever with the help of a bracket that screws into the studs in your wall.

But what do you do about the cords that are hanging down?

You could buy the tubing that runs down your wall, but that doesn’t exactly hide the problem in the most ideal way. Instead, good design means that you’ll have to keep all of those cords out of sight. But how can you accomplish that, you ask?

Delta Electrical to the Rescue

A residential electrician at Delta Electrical can help. Depending on where you live, code may dictate that you can’t have power cords running inside of your wall. Not to worry, because we can install an outlet directly behind your television, keeping the cord out of sight.

And what about the other cords that you need to connect to the television? Those can be run behind the drywall without issue and it’s a quick and easy fix that will make all the difference in the world. Kiss cords goodbye and enjoy a clean aesthetic. We spend so much time in the living room that it just makes sense to get the most out of that space. Our team can help. Contact us today to get an estimate for your next project.
