New Hokowhitu home shines light on a high quality finish

This beautiful new home of Dr and Mrs Khumar in the well established suburb of Hokowhitu, Palmerston North is a lovely example of where a striking home design has been accentuated by the owner’s selection of light switches and power outlets.

“We were shown Saturn pure white by our electrician and immediately realised this was the best quality and most stylish product we had seen” says proud home owner Dr Khumar. The light, open interior has been cleverly complemented with the modern elegant glass look of the Saturn range.  Even the metallic finish on the LED buttons gently ties in with the stunning metallic feature lights over the kitchen bench top and other high end stainless steel kitchen appliances.

Mike Isaac from MMI Electrical Manawatu said “We found that once the home owners told us they were after a high quality of finish and something different, that showing them PDL by Schneider Electric’s comprehensive range of products was a must. After consultation with the Khumar’s they decided on the style of Saturn pure white because the glass looking finish would match with their vision of the style & décor of their home”

Elegance is one factor, and functionality is another. These Saturn switches have the option to wire the soft blue LED indicator to illuminate. This feature means the Khumar’s will no longer struggle to find their light switches in the dark, as the LED’s will let off just enough light to help guide the way.

This project also utilised the compact PDL motion sensors to automatically trigger the lighting on the stunning stairway, a simple addition that adds safety and convenience for the occupants, whilst also highlighting a great feature of the home.

This new residence in Hokowhitu has proven so well how the humble light switch has evolved, and now offers home owners and designers so many more options when it comes to putting the finishing touch on their new home or next project.
