One of the beautiful things about designing your own home is that you can decide which layouts best suit your everyday routine. For instance, you can choose exactly where you want each light switch to be placed. This will eliminate the need to flip every switch to find the right one or to cross an entire room just to turn off the light. A great way to determine the best light switch layout is to mentally walk through your daily routine. For large, open rooms or walkways that you pass through, it may be a good idea to consider some home electrical upgrades. Namely, you could install two light switches, one at each end, so you can quickly and conveniently move through your home each day.
