    On a first fix of a kitchen, what height do you install the sockets that are above the work top.

    Measure yours at home then you may get an idea.

    NORMALLY they are 900-920 mm high, another thing to consider is if you are having a tiled splashback, if you have 100 mm tiles then it may make it easier to line them with the top or bottom of the tile

    I've done a new build recently and when I measured the socket height of an exisitng worktop to get an idea the top of the socket was 1200mm from the floor. This is a high as you can go on a brand new install.
