How's that for a more modern smoke detector? You can get this black and bold finish with a brightly colored accent in the middle. If red's not your thing, you've got plenty of other options -- blue, yellow, green, you name it.

The same goes for models with a white finish.

If you're turning an old back room into a nursery, why not outfit it with smoke protection in an appropriate pastel shade? Pyrexx offers several, like this lavender model.

They also offer woodgrain models for a more rustic look.

If that pine model is too bright, you could consider this darker oak finish, instead.

For the truly bold, Pyrexx offers smoke detectors outfitted with Swarovski crystals.

If you like a little more color with your bling, then this shiny red model is for you.

Of course, no line of blinged out smoke detectors would be complete without a model in gold.

There's also a gold model that comes without the crystals. You know. In case you're feeling humble.

If you'd rather your smoke detectors blended in than stood out, Pyrexx offers models that camouflage their way into high-profile ceiling prints.

The Pyrexx PX-1 smoke detector starts at £28 (converts to about $45, AU$60). There's also a model called the PX-1C that adds in Wi-Fi smarts and sells for £83 ($130, AU$170). Pyrexx isn't selling the things in the US just yet, but says that international expansion is in the cards.
