Pop-up Electrical Sockets In Your Kitchen Worktops

Can you fit a pop-up electrical socket in your new Granite or Quartz Worktops?

The answer is, yes you can. Rowe Granite can manufacture the space for them into your new worktops to allow this to happen.

Rectangular socket holes are usually created in your splashbacks/upstands. For worktops and in Kitchen Islands the hole for the pop-up socket is made.

What Are My Pop-up Socket Options?

Pop-up sockets are powered by a retractable mechanism that enables them to be hidden flush with your worktop when not being used. There are 3 types to choose from; Manual lift, Gas Strut and Motorised.

Generally speaking the manual lifted options will be the cheapest to install.

What Do I Need To Consider?

Thinking about the location of your pop-up sockets is very important. There are a few things you will need to consider.

Power accessibility – Consider the best location where you will most likely charge and use your electrical devices the most often. This may be on a worktop island as this generally is where power sockets are not currently available.

Reachability – Make sure you are able to reach the chosen socket location within arms length. When you get this right, you will guarantee that you will be able to connect and disconnect your chosen devices with ease.

Design – The location should fit within your design and style too. Try to not forget about the overall look of the kitchen once the sockets are install as to not compromise anything.

What Worktop Is Best For Installing Them?

A Solid-stone Kitchen Worktop is ideal for installing a pop-up electrical socket safely.

They have become extreemly popular over the years, accommodating the style of a modern kitchen. When designing a kitchen, more and more people are choosing to not see electrical sockets around their worktops, instead finding a more secluded way to use them.

For some home owners, their kitchen may have tall units which provide storage against their walls. If this is the case, then their socket locations are at a premium.

There are size options available too so make sure you are seeking all of the advice you need when designing your Kitchen.
