I am really pleased with our new Hamiltons sockets and switches, which we finally popped the faceplates onto last weekend. The plasterer left a bit of a mess around the sockets and so we needed to do quite a bit of filling and tidying up around them after he left which took some time (slightly questionable plasterwork areas not shown above…!). I will admit also that the faceplates didn’t go on as easily as I had hoped (nothing is ever easy!). Despite being 100 years younger than my previous Georgian flat, the walls still weren’t perfectly flat and plumb, and these thin metal plate sockets aren’t particularly forgiving and don’t really accommodate unevenness well.
P.S. These sockets are the Sheer CFX range in Matt White with white plastic inserts.
