where to put the power outlets in a living room
sarhan85May 11, 2014
Hi, I am renovating a living room and I have a chance to renew the electrical installation. On the wall (3.4 meters) there will be a modern living room furniture with a TV cabinet in the middle. The total length of the furniture is 2.92 meters. Now my dilemma is where to put these power outlets and TV antenna connection. The TV will be standing not hanging. Main consumers: TV, dvd player, Wi-Fi router, broadband optic fiber modem device and maybe micro hi fi cd player. I gave the following options: in the middle of the wall 15 inches from the ground = behind the TV cabinet. In the centre but this time higher up so that it will be masked by the TV panel itself. 2 in the corners of the wall, each at 15cm away from the corner, this means they will be visible. In all the pictures there is no cable or nothing. Could you please give me an advice on this one? Thanks

Not sure what you mean but normally all theses TV components, DVD players etc will plug into one surge protector power bar or even I to each other so you only need one outlet.

Well, I'm not from the states. I'm from Europe. Think the German style power outlets. My concern is where to put them. Hide them behind the TV stand furniture in the small gap left between the furniture an the wall or put them at sight 7 inches away from the corners?

The wall is 3.4 meters. The furniture will be 2.91. The TV stand centered is 1.50m long. If I put them behind the furniture it will be hard to access though... Thanks for the suggestion.

I guess that is why most A.V. cabinets don't have a full back panel in them.
