Personally (and what I did at home):
1) major (internet) wiring only around the house - outside and central 
core and wiring closet.
2) At distributed spots put in Mesh wifi hubsm I use UniFi, there are 
number of them.
These hubs give you strong wifi signals around the house with good 
security and sub-network (if needed) administration.

Note: this isn't of use if you are concerned about wifi pollution - I'm 
not. some are.

As part of this electrical upgrade, I’m considering and researching the possibility of setting up a communications closet to facilitate a central point for hosting network gear. Ideally, I’d like to run one or two network drops to as many of the rooms as possible. At the moment, I’ve mapped a closet on the main floor under the stairs as a possible location. Alternatively, the basement has many possibilities for hosting this type of setup.

Please keep in mind that this is a residential setup with the goal of creating a robust hardwired network that is expandable for supporting the networking needs of future technology advancements. I may get a lot of flack for stating that I’m not working with an enterprise budget, however I have an appreciation for enterprise/commercial equipment. Thanks in advance for any thoughts/recommendations.
