Pop Up Sockets Review & Information
As technology advances in all areas of life so does the tech found in the Kitchen & home. Gone have the days of just a simple oven & hob combo in the kitchen along with a mixing bowl, a few pans & a wooden spoon.
These Days we find ourselves with an abundance of tech. From mobile phones to bread making machines all requiring some form of power. As the kitchen has become more and more important as the hub of the home with everything from cooking, watching TV, entertaining and more happening in one area, we find ourselves needing to be more flexible with the space we have. Even with the addition of several wall sockets around the kitchen for powering everything, most of us still need more.
If you have found yourself unplugging a phone to plug in your blender or left wondering why the coffee machine never made your favourite mocha-chino only to find out someone unplugged the machine to charge their Tablet! then a pop up socket is going to be top of the list of must have items.
Making the Right Choice:
With several pop up sockets on the market there is a variety to choose from offering a suitable solution to worktop power in the kitchen and other areas around the home. Acanthus have been installing pop up sockets for many years and they are far from a new invention. We have noticed that most on the market are cheap looking items made from thin plastic and are not so much pop up but more drag up manually.
As leaders in kitchen & furniture design we always seek out the best products on the market to use in our installations offering you the very best the market has to offer while still taking into account the cost of such items. One of our top items we highly recommend are the pop up sockets by Socketbox! An intelligent design offering not just a reliable durable product but a piece of kit that ticks all the boxes!
