Simply Build It

There are no specific regulations regarding positions of sinks other than its proximity to socket outlets. Just use common sense to work out how best to fit the sink.

Many kitchens actually break the regulations regarding how close sockets can be simply because of the size of the room however, sockets should be a minimum of 300mm from either side of the sink.

I didn't know that there are regulations on the distance between your sink and your socket.
