    Default Add an extra electrical outlet

    We're thinking of putting in a network switch in the cupboard to link the rooms up.

    There is a light switch next to it but we rather not knock another hole. There might be a electrical cable from the attic that runs down the cupboard to downstairs where the previous owner added a master bedroom. Is it possible to tag off that cable and add an extra outlet?

    No problem, but you MUST use a registered electrician as Richard said.

    Use an extension cord

    At least tv and computer network cables don't need an electrician. Or corret me if I am wrong.

    As long as he works to code.

    If the correct wire is in place then yes. He can't tag off the light circuits.
