A house needs to be equipped with enough easily accessed electricity outlets to avoid the need for extension cords and overloaded circuits. Extension cords can be a trip hazard. For preference, electrical outlets should be doubles to avoid the later use of adaptors.
With all the new electrical appliances we now have jostling for prime benchtop space in our kitchens, correct power-point placement needs careful planning as it is usually difficult to add them later due to tiles or splashbacks etc.
In a kitchen you should start with placing power points for the three main kitchen appliances – the microwave, dishwasher and rangehood.
Then think about the other appliances you use, your kettle, toaster, blender and the like. It’s also a good idea to put a power point on the side of an island bench, too, so you have the flexibility to use appliances there if you wish.
In laundry’s you need power points placed at the correct location for your washing machine, clothes dryer and maybe your iron. Never use extension leads in the laundry.
