# Location of outlets in the bedroom

Modern man completely dependent on electrical energy. Conducted by the fact that it uses a lot of household devices, the performance of which is ensured by this source of energy. It is necessary to correctly choose the location of the sockets in the bedroom, as a person spends a lot of time here.

## How many sockets should be?

The socket is a special mechanism that allows you to use all the advantages of electricity. The number of such systems may vary depending on the room and the needs of a person.

There is no single standard that indicates how many outlets can be installed in the bedroom. It is important to organize them in such a way as to get optimal comfort. Calculate the number of sockets preferably at the stage of repair in the room. To find out the exact number of these devices, you should remember a few simple rules:

1. Decide with the number and type of devices, which you plan to use in the bedroom. Often it is not only vacuum cleaner and night lamps, but also phones, laptops and other devices.
2. When you decide to use, should be clarified which devices will work simultaneously. Considering these indicators, you can already calculate the minimum number of outlets.
3. Note the size of the bedroom. If the room is small, you should not install a large number of outlets. Often they need no more than 5-6 pieces, which will be located around the perimeter of the room.

When planning the placement of sockets, the presence of several functional zones should be taken into account:

1. Bed. 2-3 outlets are located near her. If the product is double, then it is desirable to duplicate the items on each side.
2. Dressing table. It will also need a minimum of 2 outlets. This allows you to simultaneously operate several household appliances (lamps, hairdryer and others).
3. Wardrobe. Often here are set 1 outlet, which is intended for connecting a steamer or iron.
4. Television. He involves the use of several additional devices. If you plan to install a TV in the bedroom, you will need even additionally about 5 sockets (it all depends on the model and functions).
5. Connecting household appliances. For such systems, you need to still equip several outlets that will be located in various functional areas.

Note that some of these elements can be operated with multiple instruments. Socket near the dressing table perfectly suitable for connecting a vacuum cleaner or iron. It is important to specifically not increase the number of these systems. It is advisable to optimize them for specific needs.

Such an algorithm can be attributed to the calculation of the number of switches. It should be understood that such elements will be slightly smaller than the outlets. Conducted by the fact that many household appliances do not need these systems. Often the number of switches does not exceed 3 (suspended lamps, main lighting).

## How and where to locate?

Another important question when installing sockets – where to make connectors for them. This procedure begins from the compilation of the element placement scheme. This process is quite simple and consists of several consecutive steps:

1. The places where furniture will be located (beds, headset).
2. Based on the resulting scheme, placing sockets. Often, the functional zones that have been described earlier are taken into account. It is important to take into account not only the number of elements, but also their place of fixation on the surface of the walls. To them, a person must receive quick access, so you should not install outlets behind the cabinets or under the table.

### Above bedside

Very often the outlets are installed above the bedside tables. Specialists recommend placing them at an altitude of at least 10 cm from the surface of the furniture. If the elements are several, they can be placed both vertically and horizontally.

The optimal parameter is considered to be a height of 20 cm from the top of the bedside table. In some cases, the outlets can be attached directly near the couch. Then they are placed in such a way that the user can easily reach them. The minimum height is considered to be 30 cm.

### Near the bed

Many experts claim that the devices should be placed close to the bed. This will make it possible to easily operate such devices as charging for a mobile or laptop. Bedside elements can be located in several places. If the bedside tables are set, then the sockets are fixed with the previously specified rules.

When not planned to use furniture in the bedside zone, then the devices can be attached at an altitude of 30 to 90 cm from the floor. It is important to take into account not only the characteristics of the person, but also the technical features of the operating instruments.

Note that the distance between the bed and these structures is selected individually. This is estimated to be the type of instruments that are planned to operate (charging for mobile, laptop, laptop).

### Under TV

Sockets for TV – a controversial question, as this attribute is not always taken into account when planning a bedroom. If they are absent, the owners are forced to use additional adapters and extension cords.

The optimal place for the placement of the TV is considered a wall opposite the bed. The sockets here are located relative to the place of attachment of this device. Often the optimal height is a value of 130 cm from the floor. Placing these attributes in such a way as to have full access to them. In some cases, auxiliary devices that are installed on the bedside tables under it can be used together with the TV. It is very important that the cord from them can get to the outlets fixed on the wall.

### Workplace

If the bedroom is big, many install a table here, for which they can work if necessary. For optimal work in this place, approximately 2-3 connector. It is possible to install them directly above the surface of the table or below it. The optimal height is considered to be 75 cm from the floor (15 cm above the table).

Please note that placing the outlet is not very low near the floor. This not only affects comfort, but also can lead to a closure in case of accidental water.

## Interesting design solutions

Standard connectors of this species usually have a square or rectangular shape. However, today this attribute is not only a need, but also the opportunity to decorate the interior. For this reason, manufacturers produce many different modifications:

1. The body of the product has a different decorative shape.
2. The design is complemented by unique overlays that hide holes. They fit perfectly in any interior.
