Someone either was on a price per fitting or maybe just had a few extra in the van they wanted to get rid of?

Seen that elsewhere. Absolutely disgusting install. What was the need for 90% of any of that ?

You can never have enough sockets. :p
You can however not have enough wall to put them on.:nomouth:

I'd guess that with the furniture that was in that room you'd see hardly anything showing.
 
Sell to an art buff , cover walls in TVs ,fish tanks etc
--- oops if you can find a safe zone for brackets !

At least it proves they don't like 3 way plug in adapters.....:cool:
 
The only way you could ever justify such an abomination is if the room was some sort of home office with lots of desks and kit going in

Have been asked in the past to install 7 or 8 twins in a small bedroom that was going to be used as small office. but always in white plastic sockets.

I personally hate all that flat plate stuff all on the walls looks carp if you ask me

I bet it looked like a right man cave when it was full of all the tech! I'd love to see a picture of all the rooms full of all the gadgets. :D

Bet you couldn't move though.

Bet it was a disco-dave type guy who had laser light shows on his tod. :D

I don't know whats more bizarre- the number of sockets in that room, or the number of times someone has tried to start a new thread on the same story.

My living room has 10 doubles... but I designed it that way. All normal height... not even one behind the wall mounted telly.

They were probably running a boiler room. Either on the run in Australia or locked up ;)

Overkill to an extreme, I am only used to 1 double per room and 1 light pendant. (IN DAYS GONE BY)

when the humble British 3 pin plug was developed that was right.
it was intended to supply a heater of up to 3Kw
why on earth would you need more than that in one room!!
 
Now being discussed on the Jeremy Vine show...
