I wonder if anyone can offer a reasonably elegant solution to this
We've fitted a new kitchen, and the design included having
fridge & freezer separates.
We fitted new power sockets on the wall where the fridge & freezer were
going to be positioned, and everything looked fine.
This morning, the fridge & freezer arrived and we find that, while they
will technically fit under the worktops... they will only do so as long
as they're not plugged in!
The combined depth of the socket and plug behind the appliances means
that, when plugged in, the appliances protrude out forward of the
worktop. (The dimensions on the appliance specs did not include plug
depths of course, so we didn't take them into account.)
We could even live with this, except that the protrusion means that we
couldn't open the cupboard which is adjacent, and at right-angles to,
one of the appliances. (The cupboard hinge is in the corner formed by
the cupboard itself and the freezer.)
Re-siting the sockets is a bit out of the question now, because all the
alternative locations are taken up by beautifully fitted kitchen cupboards.
I'm thinking of some sort of recessed power sockets, so that the plugs
don't protrude from the walls. Does anyone know if they exist, and if so
where they can be sourced?
Or is there a better solution?
