Time to DIY?

Monday, 11 May 2020  |  Amit

If you’re one of the many home-owners forced to hunker down during this Covid-19 lockdown, you’ve probably identified a long itinerary of DIY projects to attend to. The combination of copious free time and seeing your coworkers’ interiors in endless conference calls are perfect catalysts for a spot of redecoration. 

Most likely, you would also have had a chance to pick up on the smaller details you wouldn’t normally pay attention to in life before lockdown. Light switches and plug sockets are a perfect example of those often overlooked features that go a long way to defining the style of your interior. 

As a leading supplier of retrofit switches and sockets, Retrotouch are in a fantastic position to help you out with your DIY projects. 

So let’s start with the concept of ‘retrofit’ itself, and how you can take advantage of it. 

Retrofit products allow you to add shiny new exteriors, in our case switches and plug sockets, to older systems. That means no ripping out sections of the wall, and more importantly, no alienating your family, neighbours, and anyone else within earshot of your DIY project. With no need for expensive and time-consuming rewiring or demolition, you can stay under budget and on schedule. 

No project is too sporadic. If coordinated overhauls of your home’s entire fixtures and fittings just aren’t your thing, then don’t worry. Thanks to the continuity of all Retrotouch products, you can start small and add over time. This means that, for the DIY newbies out there, you can make improvements over time, and at your leisure. 

So what are the options?

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. 

Don’t fancy the module plate of your current electrical fixture? Then why not retrofit a new euro module to your backboard? With plastic and glass models available to choose from, that tired old unit you’ve put up with for too long can be easily replaced with something bright and eye catching.

While we pride ourselves on the impressive diversity of our products, one consistency you can count on is outstanding quality.

All our switches and sockets are built to last. Our designers have made sure that each Retrotouch product is durable, and has the staying power to outlast many of the poorer quality fittings currently on the market. With high quality materials and elegant finishings, our products will shine throughout your interior. 

Our customer service systems are still in perfect working order throughout the lockdown, so if you have any questions, or are just after some advice about your own project, please do get in touch through our contact form here: https://www.retrotouch.co.uk/contact.html
