The Content Of The Article:

The distribution of electricity circuits can be carried out in very different ways, depending on the aesthetics, the cost or the duration of the desired works.

Recessed circuits

Recessed circuits

Electrical circuits are not visible. They circulate in slits, in the void of plasterboard partitions, or in the cells of masonry elements (plaster tile, breeze block). They can also pass in the ground, drowned in a concrete slab or between the joists of a floor.

Aesthetic

This is by far the most discreet solution since the installation is totally invisible. Only the switchgear (sockets and switches) and the wire outlets are visible.

Works

A recessed electrical circuit is complicated to set up: difficult for masonry walls but much easier in framed walls.


This method of installation involves important work. In addition to electricity, you will have to carry out masonry work (bled in the walls, filler, smoothing...), then finished: painting.
Cost

Count a high price for the implementation and the material needed for a built-in electrical circuit

Apparent pipes

Apparent pipes

The conductors circulate inside the pipes (channel, plinth, molding...) apparent, applied projecting on the walls. The equipment (sockets, switches) are fixed against the pipes. This system is the most flexible since it is enough to open the chutes to add a circuit.

Aesthetic

This is the least elegant formula: outlets, switches and outlets son are protruding. Nevertheless with a little care in editing, these equipment can be forgotten.

Works

An apparent electrical circuit is very simple to set up


The easiest to implement, this solution is ideal for light renovation. Nailed or glued to the walls, the pipes do not require masonry work or repainting.

Cost

Reasonably priced for the implementation and material needed for a flush-mounted electrical circuit

Mixed ducts

Mixed ducts

As its name suggests, this system combines the two previous modes of installation. The different electrical circuits circulate in protective sheaths. But the connections are then embedded in the masonry for a few centimeters to be connected to the built-in equipment.

Aesthetic

Even if the pipes are visible, the fact that the equipment is recessed makes this solution very discreet. Skirting boards can be painted or chosen in decorative patterns.

Works

Achieving a mixed electrical circuit requires a minimum of masonry skills. If the installation of exposed ducts does not pose a technical problem, the connection between them and the sockets and other switches requires masonry work.


This solution involves many small jobs. Wherever an appliance is built-in, a restoration of masonry and finishing (painting, wallpaper, paneling...) will be expected.
