Having recently moved to a new house, we (the royal we!) have decided to have a new kitchen fitted. I gathered that this would require some rewiring so I thought it best to check out what was there already. Wished I hadn't. Not the greatest install ever seen then again probably not the worst. My question is that bearing in mind just about nothing is in the right place, cooker, sockets etc that the kitchen needs rewiring......however the floor is concrete and currently sockets are supplied from above, presumably spurs of a ring as all are singly cabled. The cooker circuit comes up to a blanking plate on one wall, the cable runs through the ceiling space above and back down to the switch on another wall. Have any of you an idea of the best way of approaching this, the kitchen is not going to be cheap so conduit is not desirable nor are blanking plates (as there currently are). I would like the best finish possible. My ideas so far are: 1) New ring supplied to kitchen wired from ceiling to socket (rather than floor socket) along with new cooker circuit. 2) Converting two current radial outlets (2x2.5mm), although neither are in ideal starting positions. I would greatly appreciate any advice. I guess the floors are going to have to come up. I simply want the best job for the least disruption (bl**dy laminate floor). Thanks.
