Extra sockets to maximise potential

As well as walls, electrical sockets can be installed on worktops or desks, and this may be especially useful if you work from home, or from a garage or workshop. Thinking about how you can best make use of the space often requires the installation of new sockets so you can access electricity easily and safely, without the overuse of extension leads, which can be dangerous, particularly if you use a lot of high voltage equipment at once.
