Just for fun because it’s Thursday, and because I haven’t done one of these kinds of posts in a while–the kind that’s mostly pointless other than to collectively say, “Huh! Well, would you look at that!”–and because I probably have some mostly-pointless-posts quota that I have to fill: one devoted to electrical outlets.

Hold your horses and your mouses! I swear this is going to be fun. Anyhow, I can almost guarantee it won’t be painful.

Last time we checked in with electrical outlets circa their birth, they were the standard two three-socketed affairs. But boy how times have changed.

Like, how about a power outlet specially designed to blend in with the rest of your wall?

“My backsplash!” You cry, “It’s marble!”

Yeah, well now so is your outlet cover (thanks to Trufig).

This next one is really a complete tease, so don’t get your ordering fingers warmed up just yet. Regardless, the Japanese company Node has designed an outlet that allows users to plug in at any angle.

Prescribed power cord positioning–how passé. 

Meanwhile, the folks over at SnapPower have introduced the electrical outlet nightlight, because if you’re going to have something so dumb looking around, it might as well make itself useful. I mean, you know, like, more useful.

A particular favorite of mine are the electrical outlet iterations that pop up and out and all sorts of ways. Scope this pop-out outlet from Legrand via House Beautiful down below.

And then imagine that white block disappearing at your whim.

Hello, innovation. 

For a slight variation, the team at Henrybuilt (via Remodelista) offers the outlet concealed by fold out panel.

Even if people aren’t getting cleverer at the actual design of their power outlets, they’re certainly getting smarter about where they put the things. 

Take this under-sink situation from The Hunted Interior:

Power, people.

And now back to our regularly scheduled lives.
