Coffee maker, toaster oven, blender, crock pot, electrical tea pot, microwave. What do all these items have in common? They are all frequently found in your kitchen, and they all need to be plugged in.
Strategic Power Outlet Placement
In addition to these kitchen appliances, you might also need an outlet for your phone or iPad charger, iron, handheld vacuum, pencil sharpener, printer or scented plug-in. Don’t overload your sockets. Add more as part of your total home electrical and lighting plan.
A walk-in pantry is the perfect place for extra outlets. You might even determine that some of your kitchen appliances like your microwave can just stay plugged in in the pantry all the time, giving you more counter space for baking or craft projects. Beware, you may enjoy your clutter-free counters so much that you start eating out more just to keep them bare.
