Hiding laundry room plugs

Postby Countryproject » Tue Feb 09, 2021 6:34 pm

Hi everyone , wondering if anyone has any ideas . We are redoing our laundry room which currently just has plasterboard walls .

The machines plugs are very high up behind the machines , so very visible . Without moving these sockets , does anyone have any suggestions on fitting a worktop around them or hiding them somehow .

Simply Build It

The UK plug has a fuse inside, the fuse ruptures due to the metal inside the fuse melting, so clearly they generate heat, so they must be in free air or fan assisted air when in some carcasses for ovens for example, so ability to cool is important, specially where using near to the maximum of 13 amp for an extended time.
