We recently removed a wet bar from our living room and we're going to replace it with a kegerator. On the wall above the wet bar, there are currently two switches and one outlet, but not in a row; one of the switches is above the outlet and the other switch. We want to have an outlet down low so the plug for the kegerator is not visible.
Surprise surprise, when the plumber opened up the wall to cap off the plumbing, he uncovered a capped off outlet box (which while trying to find out how to deal with our situation I've learned shouldn't have been dry walled over). So putting a new outlet in there seems straightforward enough.
My question has to do with the switches and outlet higher up on the wall. Ideally, we'd like to not have an outlet there at all, and just have the two switches next to each other. But as I've mentioned, I know I shouldn't drywall over where the outlet was.Can I move the upper switch to be next to the lower one, put wire nuts on the wires from the outlet, leave them in the box with the switches, and then put on the face plate? Or is that not safe? If it's not, then my plan is to move the upper switch down and have the two switches and the outlet in a row, even if the outlet really won't get any use. Unless there are other options? Thanks!
