socket height from top of worktop

29 days ago

Hi all,

Another dilemma!
We are at the stage where our kitchen is being installed. However our sockets seem to be sitting a bit high. They are around 26cm from the top of the worktop (2cm height) to the bottom of the socket.
I understand that between 15-20cm is the way to go.
I’m attaching some pictures. The red outlined socket shows where we think it should be, centred between the top of the worktop to the bottom of the wall units.
What does everyone think?
Should we move or leave?
I should add we have some light switches shown in the other picture which would also need to be lowered to be in line with the revised socket height.

Any guidance appreciated.

Many thanks
