Steph, being more technically minded than myself, installed a very handy USB port on her kitchen counter shortly after moving into her house. Despite remodeling a few years ago, I didn’t see the need to have one installed.
Well, fast forward four years and I now see the need to have one! In this video, we install a USB outlet at my kitchen counter. With an installed USB port all I need now is the USB cable to charge my phone. I love that the port is at counter top height rather than the normal electrical outlet height. Not really a problem for me now, but as I age, it could be.
This is a very do-able DIY for even a novice DIYer. It only takes a few tools and a minimum of skill. Just remember, TURN OFF THE POWER, before attempting any electrical work. You will love the convenience of having a counter height USB port to charge your devices. You could even add a cute basket nearby as a phone drop for visiting guests where they can stow their phones and keys and charge them if needed.
