Bring out the best in your newly remodeled space with exquisite illumination.
At last! The time has arrived for the remodel! Selecting new colors, trims, cabinets, tile, flooring, and appliances is exciting, but do not forget about the electricity! The remodel is a terrific opportunity to update wiring, move or add outlets, add or remove overhead can or pendant lights, create exquisite multi-level lighting for a cozy glow, or anything else from your or our designer’s imagination! The right light fixture in the right location can transform any space. There are incredible new options available for beautiful and energy efficient light fixtures, conveniently designed switches, app-operated smart switches, dimmers, and outlets that include USB charging options for today’s smart devices.
Our years of design expertise allows us to translate your dreams and needs for the remodeled space into a beautiful, more convenient, and functional energy efficient design, while meeting current building code safety requirements. We especially enjoy collaborating with you to ensure the design for your space reflects your style preferences.
Lighting design that includes multi-level light sources adds more ambiance, flexibility, and functionality to a space. Overhead lighting can create shadows and poorly lit areas, making tasks more difficult. By adding correctly placed task lighting for applying makeup, shaving, working in the kitchen, reading, or doing detailed craft or sewing work, we can help make tasks easier by eliminating shadows. For the bathroom, there are exciting options for expanding vanity lighting to include overhead fixtures, lights above or along the sides of the mirror, as well as small spot lighting. Our decades of experience at Leading Edge Electric means all various light sources will be intelligently placed to eliminate shadows and unevenly lit areas, creating an aesthetically pleasing, energy efficient, and highly functional design. Many new and exciting options exist for switch programming convenience, including grouping lights, dimming options, and timers.
Before beginning any project involving general demolition, including cutting into a wall or ceiling, it is crucial to have electrical wiring in the remodel area be located by a licensed electrician. While it is always the hope that original wiring was installed sensibly and following building safety codes, avoid shocking surprises by having Leading Edge Electric locate and mark all the wiring before construction begins, as well as perform all necessary upgrades, moves, and electrical expansions. In most cities, using a licensed electrician for all electrical work is required by law. For the safety of your home or building and its occupants, have a licensed electrician involved in your remodel plans. While Ms./Mr. Random Handyperson may say with confidence, “Sure, I can move that outlet, and add a new light fixture in a new spot, no problem,” are you willing to gamble your life and home on Ms./Mr. Random’s statement? Building codes require all new electrical work to be performed by a licensed electrician, and a building permit to have been assigned to the work. If unlicensed Random Handyperson performs the work, the building inspector can and will require the work to be torn out and done again by a licensed electrician. Skipping required-by-law permit pulling and taking shortcuts, besides putting yourself, the home or building and its occupants in danger, can be financially costly, and cause further problems in the future if you try to sell the property.

No matter how urgent an electrical repair may seem, it is extremely dangerous to attempt solving electrical problems without professional training. If you or someone else are not injured or killed during your attempt, there is still a great chance that something was done incorrectly, posing a dangerous safety risk to you, your home, or your family. Faulty electrical wiring is the number one cause of house fires in the United States, according to the National Fire Protection Agency. To ensure the safety of your home and loved ones, always rely on a licensed professional for any electrical services. Hire a professional. Your life and safety of your property depend on it..
