Going to put a Nest Hello in
Typical new build wired doorbell only puts out 6v
It is a Deta C3504 - wall mounted chime & transformer all in a plain box on the hallway wall. No consumer unit transformer - looks like 240v straight to the hallway wall from the ground floor lighting circuit.

All I can seem to find are DIN rail mount transformers - not ideal for the visible wall. All empty enclosures I've found would be fine for a cupboard but not idea for a hallway wall.

Am I looking in the wrong place, any advice on an enclose that looks OK?
Even better, any advice on finding a decent 12-24v doorbell transformer designed for a visible wall and not DIN mounted, even better if it has a built in chime?! Thank you in advance!!!

Not exactly the suggestion you are looking for but when I had to fit the DIN rail mounted transformer for my Ring doorbell I couldn't run it to my consumer unit. So I put the transformer in a double gang back box with a blank front. Looks okay and is safe, but no chime as I had a separate/remote one for the Ring doorbell.

Another random idea - had the same challenge with ugly, 1980s looking devices being the only style available - ended up 3d printing a cover, looks great now!

Just a thought! Happy to model/print something if helpful.
