Hi I'm starting a job tomorrow and I've not come across this before. I'm wondering what people would do here. Plugs I'm fine with but the trunking is what I'm wondering what to do with.

I've never seen kitchen sockets surface mounted like that before. Seems like a lazy electrician. For such a small run they could have been chased into the wall. No real excuse as they were done before the fitting of the units (looking at how the upstand has been mitred around the trunking). I would just tile the wall areas around them. Not much else you can do but to cut the tiles around the trunking and back boxes. 👍

Thanks for your reply.
That is indeed what I thought to do as going behind the plug would obviously raise it up then leave a gap.

What an eyesore that is! All you can do is what's been said above and be tidy with your silicone to make it all look nice and neat
