Socket to the energy bill: 5-bed home with stupid number of power outlets leaves us asking... why?

Re: Lots of sockets

You can never have too many sockets in a kitchen, even with a moderate number of middle-class appliances (coffee grinder, coffee maker, breadmaker, slow cooker, food mixer, well as the usual kettle, toaster and microwave)

Our kitchen definitely doesn't have enough, it's a pain to unplug the toaster if you want to use the blender for example.

When I had my last house rewired, the electrician thought I was weird for wanting two double sockets fitted on either side of the double bed in the bedroom, but it definitely proved useful (if you just have the one then it's full with a lamp and a phone charger, it's nice to have one for a second kind of charger and a free one to plug the hoover in...).
