5 Tips for Choosing the Best Modular Switches and Sockets

When planning and setting up your home, there are multiple points of attention to cater to, ranging from furniture and furnishings to electronic devices and their consequent set-ups. This is where the role of light switches and electrical sockets comes into play. These features effectively act as a link between the user and the appliance connected to it, since switches essentially stop and start an electric circuit. Some of the standout tips to consider while choosing modular switches and sockets can be elaborated on below.

1. Design

It goes without saying, it is important to consider the design and aesthetics of any appliance in your home. The secret to a beautiful home is in the details. Switch covers can even be personalised to perfectly match your home theme or to capture and display your memories. With numerous product lines designed to cater to diverse tastes and requirements from around the world, you can easily find the electrical switches and sockets that will blend seamlessly with your home interior and complement its style.

2. Quality of Materials

One of the other important aspects for interested buyers is to look at the type of material that is used in making the switches and sockets. Furthermore, modern electrical brands specialise in making fire and shock resistant switches and sockets. These appliances can notably reduce the risk of electrical fires in the home and office settings.

 

In addition, buyers are able to reduce their environmental impact and minimize their CO2 footprint through purchasing switches and sockets with Green Premium  certification.

3. Connectivity & Accessibility

In today’s day and age, most of us have friends and family members living abroad. In most cases, when they come over for a holiday, they have to carry or purchase, adapters and extensions to plug-in their phones and/or laptops. Modern modular switches effectively solve this problem by offering support for multiple pin-types or even USB outlets.

4. Child Safety

Electrical safety is a fundamental concern for households consisting of youngsters and/or toddlers. Modular switches offer enhanced safety in comparison to conventional socket designs for children with retracting shutters and support for devices which can automatically disconnect current flow when accidents are detected.

 

5. Repair & Replacement

In the traditional form, replacing faulty switches is full of hassles. Commonly, the entire faceplate needs to be unscrewed, then the faulty switch is taken out and replaced, and then the face plate is put back in place. Often, lifting the face plate can damage the wallpaper or paint around it, giving a tarnished look to your carefully planned decor. New modular electrical switches and sockets offer a more convenient solution. Instead of detaching the whole plate, a faulty electrical switch can be replaced by a front-loading mechanism that enables easy disconnection of a particular switch or socket on the plate.

 

Schneider Electric is just one of the many players in the realm of electrical switches & sockets. The prominent ranges offered include – AvatarOn, NEO, Ulti, ZENcelo.

everything we wanted and kept reducing the price to secure the job. Finally, met up with TIL, gave their points on what we had in mind; points that we never considered, this got our attention.
They said they supervise end-to-end, and they absolutely did. We were always travelling, but TIL maintained close communication; complete with pics and details.
They took our ideas and made them better. We are extremely happy with the results, and we definitely will use them again for our next project and we certainly will recommend to our friends.

We did an extensive search and spoke to at least 10 ID companies before shortlisting to 3 (TIL being one of them). What made us choose to work with Travis was that he was able to understand the concept/theme that we wanted for our first home. He was very upfront with us on the feedback on our ideas and gave us different options to think about during the process. Given a very short timeline to work with, Travis kept us update regularly through text and pictures of the progress of the renovation that gave us a peace of mind. Despite a couple of hiccups along the way, Travis delivered our dream home with a great service and followup. Thank you Travis for making ur resort dream come true! – Kevin & Gracie

We first approached Tracy, our interior designer, outside our neighbour’s home where she popped by often during their renovation period. Like most homeowners, we compared between 4-5 interior design firms for our home renovation. The quotations given by the shortlisted firms were competitive, hence comfort level and trustworthiness of the interior designer became our key deciding factor. Tracy’s mature and attentive personality stood out from the rest and having seen her frequent presence during our neighbour’s renovation period further boosted our confidence that we could count on her to manage & supervise the project for us.
We were rushing to move in within a month which we understood was a rather challenging timeline. Much to our delight, Tracy had coordinated & worked closely with the carpenters & electricians to complete the renovation works slightly ahead of schedule. Throughout the project, she would proactively update us on the progress of the renovation works via whatsapp with photos. The renovation went well with minimal supervision from us as we knew we could leave the project management in her good hands. Towards the end of the renovation, Tracy also attended to the minor imperfections raised & ensured prompt resolution. In addition, she was helpful in giving us ideas on home decor & furnishing.
We would like to thank Tracy for her professional help, allowing us to have a peace of mind during the entire renovation process. We are satisfied with our new home, all thanks to Tracy and The Interior Lab!

Kevin from 13th design studio is a great, responsible and reliable interior designer. As we have a design/creative background, aesthetics was everything. There were couple of ID companies we’ve seen that couldn’t live up to that. We are glad we’ve chosen Kevin for our home.
The mood ref that we wanted was pretty much carved to stone, he was patient and worked with us as we were pretty anal with the choices of design that goes into our home. He excellently brought that dream home into a reality to us. A dream come true!
ID nightmare are stories we often hear. And Kevin is definitely not anywhere near that. It was a fun and exciting experience seeing our place crafted till completion, there was brilliant chemistry throughout the way in understanding what we wanted. Stress and worry free.
All in all, fantastic and great satisfaction. Seriously, just look for Kevin 13th Design Studio if you want your place done up.✌️

A cosy home with a kitchen island, a house with a nice blend of our favourite colours, wood & vintage tiles … these are some of the ideas I communicated to Philip. He was very open to my ideas and gave his professional design POV too. Throughout the renovation, Philip was very patient with me as I have difficulty in making choices😅. He also went the extra miles to help me despite of his hectic schedule. Philip is a sincere, patient and responsible ID with good eyes for design and details. Good after service too. My house is tastefully renovated; cosy and homely as I wanted it to be. What a transformation from an old-looking flat!! Highly recommended!!
