Installation location of the switch socket

When installing switches and outlets, besides determining the installation height, the location should also be selected reasonably, otherwise it may cause inconvenience in use. The installation location of sockets also needs to be based on the specific use space, such as the sockets in the entryway, bedside, living room, etc. are not the same.

Install on the left side of the room

This is the installation location for most sockets and switches, because most people are right-handed, and if the socket or switch is installed on the right side of the room, we need to use our left hand to turn on and off the switch, which is inconvenient to use.

The socket near the door should be closer to the door

This is for the convenience of using the switch at night. When it is dark at night, if we can press the switch socket close to the door when entering, it is both convenient and avoids collisions.

The distance between the bedside switch should be reasonable

Futina also want to remind you that most people turn off the lights before going to bed. If the switch in the bedroom is only installed at the door, we still need to get up to turn on the light and then grope to bed in the dark. Therefore, many households now install switches for lamps at the bedside. For convenience, the distance between the switches on both sides of the bed should be based on the width of the bed, and the switch socket should not be blocked by the head of the bed.
