    I am not an electrician (as you will see from the question!) and I am not planning on doing any electrical alterations. My question is one of safety. I wanted to move a couple of sockets on a kitchen ring main. So I switched off that circuit on the RCD board and all the sockets were then dead. I...

    Kitchen fused spurs

    I'm having a new kitchen fitted... I realise it's a good idea to have accessible spurs for my appliances. Thing is I don't want the walls cluttered with spurs. Is there a maximum distance from switch to the appliance, like the idea of having the switches together, like on a grid may be. Thanks
