    Anyone know good online resources to browse sockets + switches? Or where I could pick up brochures or see in real life?

    I found it useful to purchase random double sockets online as they were also cheaper that local providers. Get 4 or 5 different types of brands you like. The ones you don't like go behind the fridge, freezer, washing machine, dryer, TVs l, etc. Then you just buy everything (sockets, switches, dimmers, etc) of the brand you like.

    You can also put cheaper plastic ones in the utility, spare room, office, etc and the more expensive ones elsewhere where they'll be seen.

    I got mine from the tlc-direct in the UK as it was the cheapest of the brand I liked but they don't ship to Ireland since Brexit I think.
