Plugmold, Wiremold, etc.
I met with my KD and contractor today to go over the final plans...demolition starts Wednesday. During our discussions, the subject of plugmold came up... So, here I am with another plugmold post...this is so far outside my area of expertise!!!
Type of Plugmold
They are planning to install a type of plugmold (wiremold?) that I haven't seen on the Forum yet...it consists of two wire channels that go the length of the strip so you can plug an appliance in where ever you want...you can even slide the plug up and down the channels if you need to.
Does anyone have this type of plugmold? Pros/cons vs the plugmold with outlets every few inches?
Orientation of Plugmold
Also, when I mentioned that I wanted "angled" plugmold the contractor said they do "flat" plugmold up against the back of the cabinet. I tried to explain what I was talking about, but I'm not sure he understood. For those of you who did not get angled plugmold, are you unhappy and wish you had gotten angled?
I think I want angled, but my KD did say that she thinks we should order matching cabinet molding to mount the plugmold on if we do angled...does this sound right?
I'm a little frustrated with this...and it's a subject I'm not an expert on so I feel very unsure of myself when discussing it. Help!
I do have a picture of Needanap's plugmold...but I didn't have it with me.
Any and all advice/suggestions/comments welcome!
I searched the Electrical Wiring forum for info, but there wasn't much...and it's not very active... The best I could find was:
We installed ours on a 45deg angle down. Used a 2x2 furring strip ripped in half to provide a mounting surface and then mounted the plugmould on the strip at the back edge of the upper cabinets. Easy to use and easy to see.

Either facing down, on the wall tight against the bottom of the upper cabinets, or on a beveled strip facing down at 45 degrees or so.
