Sometimes the best place for an outlet is on the floor near a sofa, end table or chair. Conveniently placing outlets where you’re living means no more extension cords for lamps, computers or a motorized recliner.
When a home is built, outlets are placed all around the perimeter of the rooms. In most cases, this provides adequate access to outlets to plug in TVs and lamps. But, as time goes by, you move furniture around and all of a sudden, you’re stringing extension cords to meet your electrical needs.
While electrical cords are OK for a temporary electrical solution, they are by no means intended to be a permanent solution because of the threat of overheating wires or a tripping hazard.
Putting an outlet where you need it is easier than you think. Even in the middle of a room! Enjoy the convenience of having outlets where you need them, not where they were put when your home was built.
