Renovation rule #1: Don’t skimp on the details!

When making home improvements, one of the most common mistakes made by homeowners is diverting too much time and money on large scale projects and ignoring the little things. Too often, fixtures such as light switches and sockets exist simply as an afterthought and are budgeted accordingly.

But things are changing. With a dazzling array of modern electrical solutions available, the little things are starting to count a lot more than they used to. A minimalist aesthetic is taking over, and incorporating a sleek look down the smallest detail is integral to having a domestic space that looks and feels the part.

At Retrotouch, we’ve made it as simple as possible to add new switches to your home. Our retrofit philosophy means that, without needing to rejig your existing wiring, you can upgrade your switches with ease. And, with many of us forced to spend an increased amount of time at home, there has never been a better time to switch your switches.



One great way we provide consumers with a range of styles and colours is with our Simplicity range. Boasting gorgeous high quality faceplates and screwless exteriors, these models are available in a tasteful range of colours. From rocker switches in charcoal, bronze, and gray, to power sockets in a similarly bright array of colours, there is a look for every household.

Not only are our Simplicity models a fantastic way to give your light switches a much-needed facelift, you can retain a consistent style across all your fixtures and fittings. Plug sockets, dimmer switches, Euro modules, fused spurs, cooker switches, TV accessories. You can get that same flawless look across your entire household. Or for those who want to mix and match, consider our range the perfect way to customise different areas of your home.

For those looking to introduce the latest cutting-edge light switch technology into their household, look no further than our unique Smart WiFi switches. These switches wield unprecedented connectivity, to give you comprehensive mastery of your home lighting system. These sleek switches can be controlled wirelessly via the App or voice control using Alexa, Google Assistant or Siri Shortcuts.



Alongside all the efficiencies our Smart Switches provide, there is the added benefit of saving energy waste in your home. With our app, you’ll be able to monitor energy usage and make adjustments wherever required. A big part of being able to make positive changes to your lifestyle habits is having that data on hand when and where required. Using our unique switches, you’ll be given complete visibility from the palm of your hand.

For those looking to make quick and easy improvements around the home, you can’t go wrong with Retrotouch.
