Recommendation for wall mounted router, please

I have fibre plusnet via the supplied separate BT Openreach modem and Netgear router.
The phone line is in the hall, so that's where the kit is (the PC is actually situated in a room on the floor below, connecting via a TP-Link powerline).
I want to replace the separate modem and router with one unit (which also needs to supply a wireless signal, of course). I also want to wall mount the unit.
Finally, as its in the hall, I'd rather not have a shiny black box with lots of flashing lights - ideally I'd like white and unobtrusive.
Any recommendations?

As you're looking for a white, wall mountable device then all I can suggest is this : http://www.draytek.co.uk/products/business/vigor-2860 or one of it's variants.

I don't know how unobtrusive a router with three antennas (antennae?) can be, but this one - the TP-Link Archer AC1900 - is white, VDSL2-capable and should be compatible with your Powerline kit:

(There's also a cheaper, but well-reviewed, TP-Link router, the W9970, reachable from the same page. Fewer frills, but may do the job for you.)

You may be able to use you Plusnet Hub One or BT Hub 5 and get a wall mount kit for the router. https://www.ebay.co.uk/ulk/itm/152042811194

I'm tempted to buy one.
