In my kitchen I have a single socket next to a switch for the
dishwasher socket. There are no other sockets nearby, and I am fed up
with having to unplug the microwave to plug in the toaster and so on.
I could move the toaster, but it fits in so well where it is and is
far away from the gluten-free toaster (I have 2 Coeliac daughters) to
Is it acceptable to remove the switch, replace it with a socket and
simply wire the dishwasher socket as a spur? I know I could probably
cut the hole a bit bigger and fit a double socket, but that would
disturb the tiling, take time, probably never get finished, upset
Alternatively, is there such a thing as a double socket with a switch
outlet, as that would solve the problem nicely?
