Once upon a time, it was not uncommon for the only electrical sockets you would use at home or in an office to be white plastic switched or un-switched sockets. Yet over time the demands at both home and work for things that we need to plug in have changed considerably, indeed in some modern houses we are seeing a trend back to smaller three round pin sockets, which are used purely for lighting and run on a lower maximum current than the traditional 13 amp ring mains do.

Many modern houses now also have data and voice sockets built in all over the home, even upstairs whereby you can plug in a telephone in any room, even the bathroom! Or you may have built in RJ 45 sockets throughout the house for a wired in computer network although this is becoming less common as many people are moving to wireless. Also there is the need to have networks around the home, particularly in apartments so that they can be used for connecting satellite and cable devices/networks together.

So as you can see there is now a demand for more Mains Plugs & Sockets than the standard three pin plug sockets, however having a row of three or four white plastic electrical sockets on the wall can look slightly unsightly and you may wish to opt for a better looking finish. The good news when it comes to electrical sockets for all of the above applications is that you can then get them in a wide range of finishes, including a favourite of ours, which is polished chrome. Indeed polished chrome sockets rather than looking unsightly on the wall can actually become a real feature.

The fact that they have a metal finish should not worry you, as they are perfectly safe from an electrical point of view. They look absolutely stunning and are very easy to keep clean with simple wipe of a cloth removing any greasy fingerprint marks that might occur. The chrome sockets are also very tough and hard wearing and will be resistant to the majority of scratches that might potentially occur from the pins of a plug being misaligned with the socket.

Out of all the metal finishes that you can purchase Mains Plugs & Sockets in, chrome is certainly one of the best looking finishes and we do not think you will be disappointed if you fit chrome sockets throughout your house as replacements for white plastic ones.
