Light switches – our pick of the best

11 images

A stylish light switch is the perfect finishing touch for any decorating scheme. When choosing switches take into consideration the lighting effect you wish to create in each room as this will determine which type of switch is right for you. Dimmer switches are ideal for creating ambience so are naturally more suited to bedrooms and living rooms. For kitchens and hallways, which are generally brighter, you may want a simple lever switch in a statement finish such as chrome or silver. There are many designs available to suit different styles. Choose traditional brass for a country-style living room or try a matt black finish to keep things contemporary in a modern living space. All these products must be installed in accordance with local Building Regulations. If in any doubt, or where required by the law, consult a competent person who is registered with an electrical self-certification scheme. Take a look at our edited selection to stay switched on to the latest must-have designs…
