Complete your interior with matching electrical accessories. Interior designers and specifiers know that it is often the small details and the finishing touches that make the difference between a good interior and a great one. Designer electrical accessories are used to enhance the design theme with finishes such as bronzes, satin stainless steel, antique brass, nickel and even painted flat metal plates in white or wall matching colours. The interior designer, architect or lighting designer will specify the best quality, hand finished plates for light switches and sockets, but in modern homes and interiors this is often just the start. Interiors in todays homes and commercial spaces now need much more than this.​ There are many other controls that are often added to the rooms, for example:

  • Data outlets
  • TV points
  • Telephone sockets
  • Thermostats
 

Shaver point to match bathroom accessories
Satin stainless steel to complement fittings.

Sockets and matching lighting control plate

​Matching media outlets

With a little planning, the right manufacturer can produce all electrical accessories to perfectly match each other, with the same finish and style. Combining multiple outlets on one bespoke plate, for example 13 amp and 5 amp outlets, dimmers and switches on the same plate, multi-ganged switch plates and integrated data and AV outlets. Bringing these essential services together on one matching plate, has been done for many years in classy hotel rooms and is now becoming more and more common in residential interiors.

Some premium manufacturers can create matching plates to coordinate with the rest of the installation, to include such things as:

  • Sounders Entry / alarms
  • Lighting control plates
  • Shaver sockets
  • Card switches
  • Floor sockets
  • Architrave switches
  • Panic buttons

Look for an electrical accessory supplier that has their own manufacturing facilities, where they can design and produce any combination and size of plate, in any finish you choose, to match the manufacturers standard range of switches and sockets.​
