Innovative wiring accessory company Trendiswitch has expanded its range of plug sockets and switches with an inspiring new colour collection. 

The new 'Let's Do Colour' range features 16 colours to compliment any home or business interior, featuring neutral shades of blue and grey alongside bright strawberry and orange hues. 

For those looking for more traditional tones for their sockets and switches, Trendiswitch continues to offer its full product range in its core shades of classic black, white, gold and silver.

The new range came about following a discussion between Sean Toseland, Sales Director for Consumer Retail at Trendiswitch, and Homebase. 

Sean said: "To compliment our traditional four core colours we decided in late 2020 to launch the “let’s do colour” project and along with our retail partner HOMEBASE we have bought 16 new colours to the wiring accessory space, offering a huge choice of options to the consumer.

"With a strong emphasis on the current trends in home interior paint our new colours range is led by greys and tones of blue however we have been bold and added reds and oranges."

Sean added: “Our principal retail partner Homebase approached me in late 2019 with a radical brief, “how can we really shake up the electrical offer”. After some small trials, social media surveys and experiments in colour we had the solution to that brief by the summer of 2020 and in November we rolled out to all stores, instantly adding something very different to a space dominated for many years by white plastic and chrome. By being brave and working very closely with Homebase we have changed the landscape of electrical accessories.”

Homebase stores offer the full range of colours using eye-catching displays:
