    Hi,

    I'm currently in the process of installing an IKEA Pax open wardrobe into our built in wardrobe space. There's a socket inside that will be covered by the sides of the new wardrobe. Is there any way I can incorporate this? Do I simply cut a hole in the wardrobe side and add a dryline box then attach to that?

    Cut the hole, but use a deeper metal box.
