I'm in the process of planning a conversion of a room, from kitchen to bathroom.
I live in the UK and there are regulations prohibiting electrical sockets to be within 3m of a bath or shower, essentially meaning I need to have them all removed - there are 2 single sockets, 4 double sockets, and a fused outlet for the cooker.
My question is, how should I go about making these outlets safe so I can ideally fill & skim over the top of where they were - should the wires be removed from the walls, or is it safe to have them disconnected from the fuse box and terminate the other ends, then plaster over the top? They are part of the top floor ring circuit, so I may need to connect them together if those wires also power other sockets.
I would hire an electritian to do anything required with the fuse box, and am competent enough to wire connector blocks, sockets etc myself. What is the correct approach?
