Sockets for the bathroom: practical, safe, stylish.

Hair dryer, electric toothbrush, radio – there are many reasons why we can’t go without socket outlets in bathrooms. Here’s an overview of all options and the most important features.

Electrical socket outlets in bathrooms: safety first.

You’re planning a new build or want to modernise your home? That‘s a perfect opportunity to bring your electrical installation up-to-date. Whether you’re retrofitting or starting from scratch – bathroom sockets need to meet highest quality standards.

You’re planning a new build or want to modernise your home? That‘s a perfect opportunity to bring your electrical installation up-to-date. Whether you’re retrofitting or starting from scratch – bathroom sockets need to meet highest quality standards. Especially in terms of safety, you shouldn’t compromise on anything. Every country has specific guidelines for installing electrical plugs in bathrooms. In the UK, for example, they must be placed at least three metres away from the shower or bathtub (except for shaver supply units). To make sure that your setup complies with all guidelines of your respective country, you should always consult with a specialist.

Thorough planning is essential for any electrical installation. Depending on the living situation, your furnishings might have to meet different requirements or standards. We recommend starting with these three questions:

Thorough planning is essential for any electrical installation. Depending on the living situation, your furnishings might have to meet different requirements or standards. We recommend starting with these three questions:

  • How many bathroom sockets do I need? Apart from power outlets, you should factor in at least three light switches. Smart motion sensors can prove particularly useful if you don’t have a window to let in natural sunlight.

  • Where do I want to install electrical plugs in the bathroom? To avoid direct contact with water, outlets can only be placed at certain spots. We recommend a height of about one metre above the floor, which allows you to connect electrical appliances with ease.

  • What kind of socket outlets accommodate my daily routines? Low-maintenance surfaces are definitely a must: high-quality glass frames, for example, can quickly be wiped clean from stains or fingerprints. If you want to retrofit your installation, surface-mounted variants will do the trick – no extensive renovation work necessary.

Stylish statements in the bathroom: from outlets to switches.

”Form follows function“ – even when it comes to electrical installations. Of course, bathroom sockets should first and foremost serve a practical purpose. But who says they can’t look great at the same time, just like your switches?

But who says they can’t look great at the same time, just like your switches? Thanks to the modular Gira System 55, all Gira design lines have uniform measurements of 55 x 55 mm. Thus, it’s possible to freely mix and match a broad variety of frame variants for power outlets in the bathroom. You can choose between numerous shapes, colours, and materials – from classic and minimalist to modern and extravagant.
