Any standard launch amp should give you the boost you need.

If you get one that has two outputs as well then it can feed your Kitchen at the same time.

Ditto ?

To get the sort of signal boost you will need at such a low current reception strength I don't believe a booster / splitter will suffice. You need to boost the signal at source with a masthead amplifier with probably a big 26db gain such as those made by SLX. Bear in mind that this needs to be fitted as close as possible to the aeriel and needs a power supply so high up in the loft where the down-lead enters through the roof is a good place. The signal can then be split further down the line if required. For a wall mounted splitter, do you mean a flush plate like a electrical wall socket ? if so any good DIY shop should have them. B&Q for example who also stock the above mentioned amplifier in larger stores.
