Part M of the Building Regulations states that sockets should be installed at 450mm above floor level. However, if you are refurbishing a building, you can follow existing heights so if the property has sockets at 350mm you can stick to this height.

For any electrical work in the home, we recommend that you use a registered electrician. You can find one local to you here.
