A flush-type wall switch, also known as a "flush-mounted" or "recessed" wall switch, is a type of electrical switch designed to be installed directly into a wall, so that it sits flush with the surface. This means that the switch is not protruding out from the wall, creating a sleek and streamlined appearance.
Flush-type switches are commonly used in modern interior design for their aesthetic appeal and ability to blend seamlessly with the surrounding decor. They are available in various styles, colors, and materials to match different interior design themes.
These switches function in the same way as regular wall switches, allowing users to control the flow of electrical current to connected devices like lights, fans, or outlets. They can be either single-pole (controlling one device) or multi-pole (controlling multiple devices), depending on their design.
Installing a flush-type wall switch may require specific electrical boxes and mounting methods to ensure they fit properly and are securely attached to the wall. It's important to follow local electrical codes and regulations when installing any type of switch.
If you're not experienced with electrical work, it's recommended to hire a licensed electrician to install flush-type wall switches to ensure safety and compliance with local regulations.
