    Wanted - stylish baby proofing products!!!

    Hello

    I am trying and failing to find some baby proofing products in anything other than white plastic!

    I particularly want some black plug socket covers as all of our sockets are black nickel and just wanted them to look a bit nicer! Thought it wouldn't be that hard.

    If anyone knows of anywhere that sells plug socket covers, cupboard locks etc in black I'd be most grateful!

    Many thanks

    never seen them in black, as for cupboard doors you can get the internal ones so they wont be seen anyway, you could get a can of black plasticote spray for socket covers

    I have never ever seen black safety products apart from stair gates, sorry.

    I think the main priority with these products is safety as cheap as possible rather than style.

    Obviously safety is my main priority, but surely style can be a factor. I've worked hard and created a home I am proud of. These safety products will be visible for all to see for years to come so I don't see why I should just get the cheapest possible regardless of how they look.

    Thanks Sassie, I did consider trying to paint them, but wasn't sure about it from a safety perspective

    Are you for real? I have a nice house with nice things too, although most has been packed away due to the fact stylish and kids don't mix, stuff gets broken, stuff happens.

    The priority for safety goods is guess what safety, (on a budget for most parents) I am not too chuffed about having bits of white plastic around neither, but it's not about me, it's about the kids.

    This kind of question is best suited to mumsnet tbh.

    we were all for sytle and everything looking great, but before you know it there are bob the builder stickers all over your £400 nest of tables grrrrrr.

    Love him more than the tables though, so you soon forget about everywhere looking perfect and in most instances take it just looking tidy as an accomplishment.

    Good luck with your search, never seen anything like it. Might be careful putting a painted item in a plug socket though.

    No need to make comments like "are you for real?"
    I'm just asking for some help to find something.
    Just because I have two children, doesn't mean my house needs to turn into a shrine to a whole load of plastic junk.
    I already said safety was my main priority :roll:

    Take your pick, some really bling ones around for the everyday childproofing tasks :thumbsup:
