    Chrome Sockets and door handles Where's the cheapest??

    Been decorating the kitchen today, fed up of the bad weather so went out yesterday and bought a load of paint. Now our house is fairly new, 4 years old, but thinking that those nice polished chrome sockets would look nice in the kitchen as the white ones discolour and am always "Jiffing" them. Also need chrome door handles to match as most of the appliances are stainless steel/chrome coloured as is the cooker hood. Had a bit of a search on the net, but did not come up with much, but looking for the cheapest place as need at least 14 sockets for the kitchen what with double sockets and cooker socket and also TV and Telephone sockets. Also would need 4 sets of chrome door handles the Victorian ones with a curley handle and a faceplate and also a lockable one for the downstairs cloakroom. Any suggestions???

    Try screwfix for the door handles - they also do the sockets but not sure how good their prices are.

    Lidl, Aldi and Netto occassionally have the sockets..........

    thanks i'll look on their website now

    Lidl have some in now - unsure of the price, but recall them being significantly cheaper than B&Q, Focus etc

    We got our sockets from Wilkinson's and they were good value. Also got paint from there when redecorating - saved a fortune! Might be worth trying there if you have a local store.

    yes looked at screwfix website they seem good, will check out wickes online and at branch - cheers

    Toolstation does good electric sockets etc in various finishes (see website) - these brushed chrome are very nice and good value (I used them throughout when revamping son's flat): toolstation.com/sho…777

    Screwfix also good for electrical. Both TS and SF good for various door and other handles, but watch the price. Robert Dyas currently has some nice chrome or satin nickel kitchen cupboard/drawer handles (at least 2 types) in its sale at £10 for 10 - just bought 20 for my mum's new kitchen refurb - and round knobs to match. (If you can't find them locally, Dyas will check other branches and they should transfer stock if asked nicely!)

    The recent Lidl chrome elec sockets and switches (still around in some shops) are OK but not very keenly priced.

    BEWARE of some cheapo imported electrical fittings that are of doubtful quality.
