The kitchen is the source of food in our home. Many people pay great attention to it when it is renovated. We all know that now is an “electrical age”, more and more things need to be used at home, and the appliances in the kitchen are increasing every year. And the only thing that can power our appliances at home is the socket on the wall! There are so many kitchen appliances, these must be installed in the socket, but there is a position that most people ignore!
First of all, when we are decorating the kitchen, we must consider what areas need to use electrical appliances, and then we can arrange the design socket! First and foremost, the most common and common place is that there is a hood on the stove top, and then a plug-in refrigerator is needed at the door, and a sterilizer is needed inside the cabinet. Then if your home microwave oven and induction cooker are also in the kitchen, then we need to have several sockets on the wall!
Of course, these sockets are still not enough. If you want to install a water purifier, then you need a socket under the sink. It may not be enough. If you want to install the kitchen processor in the future, then you may need a socket in that place. Then at the top of the sink, if you want to wash the dishes with hot water in the winter, you have to reserve a socket for the hot water tap or the kitchen treasure.
After counting all these seven seven eight eight, there are already many sockets in the kitchen. But these are some conventional sockets. When many friends design their own kitchen circuits, they often neglect to design a socket in this position, which is the table we eat! Design a socket on the edge of the table. When we want to eat hot pot, we can directly insert the hot pot plug on it, without having to worry about pulling a row, which is inconvenient and unsafe! If your table at home is large, it is recommended that you install a track socket near the table. This socket can slide freely to better serve your hot pot.
After the location where the socket is installed, we also need to pay attention to the installation method of the socket. In general, the installation location of the socket should not be chosen too close to the cooktop, mainly two are willing. The temperature of a cooktop is too high, and if the socket is in a high temperature for a long time, it is easy to accelerate the aging of the socket. The smoke in the vicinity of the two stoves is too large. If the jacks are too much smoke, there may be a large risk of electric shock during the use of the sockets!
In addition, the kitchen socket should not be installed on the side of the sink as much as possible, in order to prevent the water from entering the socket hole and causing danger. If it can only be installed on the side of the sink, be sure to install a waterproof cover. Of course, in order to prevent oil fumes, you can also install a waterproof cover on the socket near the stove, which can also prevent the smoke from contaminating the socket!
Kitchen installation socket is a very rigorous work, don’t neglect it! After confirming the point at which the socket needs to be installed, we also need to pay attention to the method of socket installation. Only by doing both of these things, we can decorate a comfortable and safe kitchen environment! Don’t ignore it!
