    Hi Folks,

    First post so be gentle.

    I'm trying to plan out my new kitchen and think I am going to need some new electrics.

    Just wanting to know if this is possible before I go any further into planning where stuff goes.

    As the image shows, I would like to have the ring main extended by using an unused double socket. 32A terminal blocks inside the socket box wieth a fac plate on the front to cover it all off.

    Why spur off the new wiring?

    Put the whole lot on the ring final.
