im guessing you have a concrete floor? another way of gettin the cable there would be to pull the skirting board off

Can you run cables behind skiting boards?
I thought you couldnt due to it not being a cable zone, and also too much rish of being drilled, screwed through when joiner fixes them.

Replace skirting with one purpose designed with a cable conduit built in.

I have the ideal installation and you don't even have to be part p registered, plus no cert required.




use an extension lead get a black one and tuck it in next to the skirting, you will hardly notice it and it will not mess up your decoration nor will it break the bank
