After the renovation, there are two general regrettable things about the sockets.
One is that the location is too low or inappropriate and blocked by furniture
Second, the number is not enough, use the plug and row and messy.
Especially in the living room, there are many electrical appliances, mixed styles, before the decoration, the socket is not reserved, there will be the above two situations.
Before renovation, how to properly set aside the socket panel, from two aspects to consider: the number of sockets and height.
1. The number of sockets reserved
According to the number of audio-visual equipment, for example, if you have TV, TV box, DVD player, you need to set aside 5-6 five-hole sockets. The extra 2-3 sockets are reserved for future increase of audio-visual equipment and replacement of damaged sockets, which can also meet the usual charging demand of electronic products in the living room.
2. socket reservation position
In two cases.
(i) TV on the wall.
If the TV is hung on the wall, the height of the socket installation is generally flush with the TV mount or slightly shorter; for example, if the height of the TV mount is 1 meter, the installation height of the socket is 0.9 meters – 1 meter from the ground, the position is behind the TV, the socket is hidden, and the film and TV threading holes are reserved, which is more beautiful. Not all sockets are installed behind the TV, the others are still placed 30-60 meters near the ground.
(ii) TV on the cabinet.
The general height of the TV cabinet is about 50 cm, if the floor is laid, the ground leveling and then increase 5 cm, that the original socket from the ground 30 cm, will be blocked. Thus, to facilitate the practical words, the height of the socket should be about 60 cm.
Of course, it is possible to choose the style of TV cabinet below and place the TV on the cabinet without moving the socket position.
Note: All the problems about the socket panel should be considered before the decoration, not wait for the decoration to start before you think of doing it, because it is about the quotation of the preliminary change of plumbing, as well as increase the time cost.
