Chic Yet Practical

When it comes to light switches and sockets probably 95% of people in the country buy plain white light switches and power sockets, indeed people move in to an old house and one of the first things they do is replace the old white ones with new white ones, but why? Because we have always done it, yet with a little thought your switches and sockets could become features of your room and not just functional items.
 

Indeed if you take time to look around your local Do It Yourself (DIY) superstore then you will find a good range of electrical fittings in a range of different finishes, not all of which will be to your taste though – Gold does not work well in every house! The problem is whilst you may like some of the alternatives to plain white plastic, you may well be put off by the price of them.
 

However if you look online and find a good Internet electrical wholesaler like ourselves then you will be surprised to find how affordable great looking alternatives such as Nexus MetalNexus Screwed Flatplate and Nexus Screwless Flat Plate stainless steel switches cost to buy.
 

Think of stainless steel switches as a high end version of an alternative to white plastic. They are ideal for most rooms as they fit in with just about any style of furnishings and can even look good in older properties, just as white does.
 

Their advantage though is that stainless steel light switches do not crack like plastic, and nor do they scratch or mark easily. They are much easier to keep clean than people think, indeed you can use stainless oven cleaner spray on them to keep them looking polished and chic in style. The main thing to avoid is scratching them with a ring on your hand, although any scratches can be polished out provided they are not too deep.
 

You will find that you can source the switches and stainless steel sockets much cheaper online, and when bought in bulk they will be substantially less than the ones for sale in your local DIY store. As a good online retailer we are able to offer both matt and gloss finish stainless steel light switches and sockets.

 

Overall they offer a high class finish to your room and will become a feature rather than just some boring piece of white plastic used to turn the lights on and off. Indeed you can now even buy stainless steel light switches with dimmers and remote controls built in to them.
