Thanks Apple1 and OceanEleven!

For the kitchen side, coz at the fridge side of the kitchen I will have the sink, hob and fridge in one line.. So not much table top left and all appliances will be on the other side. That's why never put any sockets aside from the one for the fridge.

For the other side of work top, will have one socket for built in oven (thanks for highlighting, will have to add it in!) but no microwave for us. For the worktop itself, will use the 4 sockets for coffee machine, kettle and rice cooker. Occasional usage will be maybe air fryer / pressure cooker?

For toilets, will not be putting sockets.. Hubby uses travel style of shaver that runs on battery, my hair dryer will be housed at my dressing table area in the MBR. always afraid of mixing water and electricity :P

Fridge side of the kitchen, you need socket for you hood and hob as well. If there is a small table space, you may consider one more.

In case you wanna use a blender etc, right beside the sink.

Not to put sockets in toilet but outside the toilets, for vacuuming purposes or even a quick charge of electric toothbrush etc.

Ok i admit im a super lazy person but here's what im gonna do. Master room light switch change to 2way switch, usually the standard one will be at the door entrance but i did another switch just beside my bed right above my side table. So when time to sleep i do not need to walk to entrance and switch off. Pure laziness... Did it for my water heater tank switch as well, one common, one in master rm toilet.

Hope it helps.

Always think of the convenience of things like what Vct just explain is good.

These things once done cannot add on as the cables and etc are sealed.

Hey Vct and Songz,

Thanks for highlighting the idea of 2 way switches. I actually have not thought of that at all yet..

Will go plan it out ;)

If this is the case, TV feature wall too little, at least 4 plugs.

Beside fridge, if there is table top, then need another 4 if willing to pay.

Future baby room, guess there are existing plugs but not indicated, may consider to add 2 more.

Outside toilets, no plugs, for hair dryer/shaver etc.

Agree with OceanEleven on more plugs at feature wall. I have 4 plugs and still need to use extension. I should have gone for 5 or 6.

Kitchen - doesn't you intend to put any plugs on the other side of the cabinet? I dedicate fridge, oven, microwave, water kettle , coffee maker and toaster to permanent plugs. Have 2 spare ones for other electrical items like rice cooker & pressure cooker. If your tall unit also house electric items than u need plugs there. My tall unit house oven and microwave so there are 2 plugs inside. Kitchen very important - u need to see what electrical items you use everyday (dedicate permanent plug to them) and which items u use occasionally.

Thanks Apple1 and OceanEleven!

Will add in at least two more sockets at the TV console area.. Am thinking will need for TV, DVD player, possible game console and what else? Apple1, can share what else was around the area till requiring 6 sockets?

Sharing on Planning of Electrical Points

This planning is very new to me and I did not research for it. Just based it on how I think hubby and my lifestyle will require the points.

Will be doing mostly double sockets since it only cost $10 more. Unless the area really don't need double, then will do single.

I'm not sure where are the existing HDB sockets.. Sure will come with the basics right?

The add ons are indicated by x.

Any advice if the planning so far is okay?
