badly fitting electric double sockets

Postby painted lady » Tue Jun 12, 2007 6:10 pm

Have removed old tiles above worktop in kitchen and the area has been replastered, however the double sockets which remain are very untidy around the edge and now are sticking proud of the the wall ( previously level with tiles ) we are not planning retiling so this looks awful - how can this be disguised please.

Take a look at your local DIY store and ask to see some quadrant beading. You can then (using our project called angles used in carpentry) make a frame round the sockets. Rather than "disguise" them, which is impossible, you can make a feature out of them.
