15a breakers are pretty much standard here, and there are quite a few sockets attached to each breaker. In the very least you've got the whole room on one breaker, 1x15a and 1x30a for both kitchen and laundry rooms(2 loops), and not a single socket on it's own breaker, unless custom-fitted. And I used to work for a major property developer that did nothing but build large gated communities(primarily for seniors). These are new homes built today...altohugh the house i live in is pretty old...leaded glass and all.

So the basement..we've got three rigs, an air cleaner, numerous lights, all on one 15a breaker. Plug in vacuum trips the breaker., another appliance, and Microwave(monster 1200w commercial unit)...can't do that either!
