    larger than average sockets and switches?

    Does anybody know where I can buy slightly larger than average plastic light switches and double sockets. I am replacing some hideous brass fittings but they are slightly larger than the regular sized replacements. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

    dont know about larger sockets as most are one size, but these may be of help to keep visible wall tidy.

    i take it you know what your doing with electrics, thought about changing the back box normal size and filling in the gaps.

    You can buy surrounds for them. just type socket surround in Google. Screwfix and Fleabay to name a few.

    Thanks. If i don't find any direct replacements I will certainly order one of these to try out before I commit. I like the choice of colours but just hope they don't look tacky.......there again they can't be as bad as the ones I have now! Cheers
