I am looking to relocate my kitchen to another adjacent room of the house for a better layout and to create a utility in the adjacent rear half of the garage.

The question i have is the kitchen is in the original part of the house and the new location is in a later built extension, how difficult is it likely to be to re-route the required cabling for the supply to the hob/oven. This will be some 4+ meters from its current location and will need (i asssme to got through the original external wall (now internal).

i.e. Will this require ripping out the ceiling in both rooms to run the cabling through void between floors and then chasing into the wall in the new room. NB both old and new rooms have a concrete slab.

Simple line drawing attached to show the location of old and new oven (where the isolator/junction will need to be). The fuse box is located at the front of the property

NB: plumbing for water supply and waste is planned to run the supply into the new room and around the internal walls to the sink with the waste coming out of the eternal wall and into the existing drain albeit with an additional run length.

From the location of the fuse box and new room, it would surely be easier to fit new circuits.
thanks for the reply, not wanting to appear a numpty but whats involved in doing that?
You need to get some electricians in to quote - there are too many variables and practical realities involved for anybody who can't actually see the job and walk around looking at potential routes to be able to give useful answers.

On a non-electrical note, be prepared to downsize, as you have considerably less storage and worktop space in the new kitchen.

As your floors are concrete, the cable routes will be in the ceiling and down the wall. Usually access from the room(s) above are the easier method.
Needs a site visit to determine best route.
