Well for practical purposes you're going to want to have it not dragging on the floor, gonna wear and get dirty.

Also what kind of fucked up open wardrobe is that? Doesn't shit get dusty?

Can anyone recommend any good shops or brands for electrical sockets and light switches?

I'm looking for brushed metal facias with metal or black plastic detailing (buttons, etc), I hate white plastic.

I'm getting everything from Busch Jaeger in my house i'm renovating - they have a whole range (more colors after you click them) - https://www.busch-jaeger.de/en/products/switch-ranges/

Jung also has loads of options - https://www.jung.de/en/

Both brands are well priced, great quality and you have loads of options (sockets, buttons, dimmers, HDMI, Lan, etc etc)

Thanks for the links, gents.

The Busch-Jaeger looks a bit pricey for me by the time you combine all the elements together (switch, frame, switch mechanism, back box). Jung looks a potentially good option though.

Might end up going for some fancy-ish light switches but cheaper sockets as they'll mainly be hidden behind furniture anyway.

Heath, those Buster + Punch are giving me the electrical horn but the wife doesn't like them. If Dita made switches….

Got an eve last summer & really like it. Thought it was good for the cash plus there is the 100 day trial period.

Wowcher had those Eve mattresses on.
They're labelled as rejuvenated, think they just put a new cover on but they've sold 2600 which seems like a lot of returns, doesn't fill me with confidence.

You swet like fuck with those eve matress's, might be good for winter but I had mine in summer and ended up sending it back after a week, then researched the fuck out of it and trying all sorts you want pocket sprung (the right sort as some are marketing numbers) imo, also learnt the mattress world is full of crooks and the big out of town warehouses own all the brands they sell and most get there materials all from the same place and heave on sales and other tricks to sell shit. Real crooks game

In short ended up with John Ryan as the £ goes into material, almost on a par with Vispring except for a couple of k cheaper. If your baller though just get a Vispring

From memory(foam) - Simba and Leesa got slightly better reviews from Which magazine than the Eve
i have read online that the owners of Eve had a slightly less popular mattress company prior to this………..
But agree - these and the pillows can be too warm in the summer even with a 4tog duvet
