Choosing the right Light Switches

Choosing the right Light Switches

  • Ellie Stirk

When remodelling your house with our Slat Wall Panels you may find yourself in a position where you must decide which switches to utilise in each area. If you are looking at lighting for the first time, you may see that there are many different switches available, but many of them will be inefficient for your purposes.

Duel or Single Pole Switches.

You might just have noticed dual pole switches as well as single pole switches for sale. A single pole switch can only control one circuit, but a dual pole switch can control two. As a result, a dual pole switch is equivalent to having two single pole switches operated by the same switch. Dual pole switches are normally preferable for appliances, so if you want a simple light switch, go with a single pole, which is usually less expensive than a dual pole

Dimmer Switch

A dimmer switch is required if you wish to dim your lights. Dimming allows you to adjust the atmosphere and lighting intensity to fit the time and occasion and would be the perfect addition to our Slat Wall Panel range. The two primary choices are following edge and leading edge. If you want to dim LED lamps, you should use a trailing edge dimmer. Although more expensive than leading edge dimmer, a good trailing edge dimmer will also aid with bulb longevity.


Brushed chrome, polished chrome, satin chrome, brushed steel, satin steel, brushed brass, polished brass, antique brass, black nickel, rose gold, copper, bronze, white metal, matt black, and more finishes are available. White is a clean aesthetic, black nickel is quite current, antique brass is classic or historical, brushed chrome and polished chrome are highly adaptable, but polished chrome looks fantastic in an art deco environment. Matching the colour scheme to our Slat Wall Panels.
