    No mate, the zones are for basins of baths and showers not sinks. I would say that it shouldn't be possible to have your hand in the sink and touch a socket or a plugged in appliance (hairdryers) can't fall into the sink.

    No its not. I think the reccomendation for basin is 300mm to nearest accessory. Obviously a shaver socket can be closer.
