“It’s all in the details.” I know we have all heard that a million times, but I never actually realized just how big of a difference these certain little details can make in a home. Our home is a new build and came stocked with about a million boring builder grade light switches and outlets. There is nothing worse than designing a truly beautiful space, only to have those ugly light switches and outlets stick out like a sore thumb and ruin your aesthetic. Obviously outlets and light switches are a pretty important part of a home, so I just accepted that there was nothing I could do about the way they look (aside from photoshopping a really obvious one out of a photo every now and then).
Enter the adorne collection by Legrand. I fell in love at first sight with these sleek, modern switches and outlets. When I found out they have a Wi-Fi Lighting System that can be controlled with your phone I was 100% sold. You can win me over with pretty and stylish, but give my husband all the tech-y things and you have his heart. So needless to say, a product that can give us both of those things is a huge win in our book. I will also admit, with everything we have going on right now, I am all about anything that can make our life a little easier, even if that just means not having to get up to dim the lights once the Mr. and I finally get the chance to collapse onto the couch at night with cookies and Netflix.
For our lighting upgrade, I chose the stylish brushed brass wall plates with sleek SofTap Switches and dimmers in our living and dining room areas. I am obsessed with the way they look. They make such a statement, and every single person who comes to our house comments on them. They really are THAT good. Goodbye boring switches of the past!
The brushed brass ties in perfectly with my decor and is so pretty to look at, and the SofTap switches and dimmers look so modern and clean they just blend right in.
The mirror white looks so clean against our marble back splash. The pop out outlets are such a cool feature. When pushed in, they are flush with the wall and the outlets are completely hidden, and when popped out they allow you to plug-in three things at once! Perfect for all of those kitchen appliances you need out in the morning, but not for the rest of the day. We added the dual USB outlets to areas like our coffee station right next to the bar in our kitchen. These are perfect because they let us charge our phones, tablets, baby monitor, etc. right there in a central location without taking up precious outlet space. (Let’s be real, those outlets are reserved for important things like the coffee maker and milk frother…)
The outlets next to the “wet” areas like the stove and sink got upgraded to adorne’s GFCI outlets. They are safe, protect against electric shock, and I love the cool offset look of these outlets!
Legrand boasts simple installation for their products that are easy to DIY. They have tons of how-to videos and FAQs for wiring and install on their website, and they have an excellent technical support line if you run into any issues. Between the two of us, we went into this install with basically zero knowledge of lighting and electrical, and the simple straightforward installs such as single switches and outlets were easy even for us. We did run into issues when it came to more complicated installs like 2-ways and multiple switches on one plate. However, the tech support team, along with an electrician friend were able to help us get everything up and running perfectly, and we are so pleased with the results.
Aside from the beauty and function of our upgraded lighting and outlets, the Wi-Fi lighting has quickly become our very favorite part of this entire system. All you need is the Wi-Fi hub, Wi-Fi ready switches, and the Legrand Lighting Control app.
The hub was super easy for my husband to set up in a matter of minutes, and pairing it with all of the switches we wanted to control was pretty straightforward as well.
Once paired, the Legrand lighting control app allows you to turn the lights in your home on and off from your phone, saves energy, and provides added security by allowing you to create custom scenes and timed lighting sequences (especially handy for when you are away on vacation).
We are so happy with the added beauty, ease, convenience, and security that this lighting upgrade from the adorne collection by Legrand has brought to our home. I think it’s safe to say we are never going back to our boring ol’ switches and outlets ever again, and the Wi-Fi system will be a staple in our home from here on out!
