Place Sockets Where You Can Reach Them
For your home electrical and lighting plan, it is vital that you position your bedside sockets between your bed and nightstand, since this area is easier to reach than behind your bed or nightstand. By placing your bedside sockets in this spot, you will be able to make the act of plugging in an electrical device flow smoothly and efficiently; you will experience the pleasure of an unscuffed hand and will relish in the fact that you do not have to move furniture to access your bedside sockets. Note that, due to codes that mandate that outlets be placed 4, 6, or 8 feet apart, some of the sockets in your bedroom may end up being behind furniture. Fortunately, you should still have an ample number of sockets that are quite accessible.
