I'm planning to redesign my room to accommodate a new set of speakers and a TV monitor. I will need an additional electrical outlet for these gadgets. Do you think an extension electrical cord will do the job or should I have a fixed electrical outlet in the walls?

Installing an extra electrical outlet would be ideal as they're safer and more reliable than an extension cord. If you're using the extension cord for a small number of items, it's alright, but when you get to the point of having lots of things on the cord, you should consider installing another outlet instead.

I go with Wanderer. Extension cords may not hold the electrical capacity that will flow through it with a lot of electronics plugged into it. Better be safe than sorry, my friend.

Thanks for your advice. The reason I don't want to install a new electrical outlet is because I don't want to ruin the wall. I may have to hire somebody to install it so that the wall will look still the same when the installation is finished.
