It would be a good idea to check with a reputable electrical supplier concerning code ruling on this issue . When I was doing electric contracting , in floor recepts were not allowed in residental applications . But were ok in a commercial job . But only with a special type of a duplex both & cover that made the duplex sit about 3" above the floor & on a 45* angle . If it was me , I'd remove the existing recept , secure the hole with a piece of wood & then put a new duplex in the wall .It would save a lot of hassel & expense . Your insurance co would be happy also . Once I was called in a small fire damage issue in a house . Here the house had old wiring issues with almost every room with floor receptacles . The resident had set a chair ontop of a recept & sat down . The leg of the chair with the persons weight , broke the cover & pushed the recept further into the shallow metal box causing sparks & small fire . They thaqnkfully pulled the correct fuse & stopped further damage . I was able to secure the contract for a new updated service & new wall recepts in every room .So, you need to look at your future investment & family safety . God bless , Ken

Commercial buildings have used floor recpticals for years. Go to the electrical supply house and let them fix you up.
