Many people are beginning to recognize the impact that upgrading your light switch covers can make. When you give a room in your home a total makeover, those drab plastic plates can feel like they’re dragging down the upgrade. If you want to give your light switches a makeover to match your stylish new décor, here are some of the best light switch wall plate options to choose from.
A mirrored surface on your wall plate might can big an elegant, stylish impact on a space. This option is both unusual and timeless, working wonderfully with modern designs and more classical styles. Acrylic is also a much sturdier material than real glass, so you won’t have to worry about it cracking easily. Of course, that mirrored surface will show fingerprints and smudges easily, so it’s not a design for those who neglect their household chores! Keep these switch plates clean, and they’ll add a beautiful finishing touch to your room.
Oil Rubbed Bronze
Bronze has a timeless beauty and subtle style that allows it to blend with most décor. The dark, earthy tones of natural bronze are an unexpected change from the typical white light switch plate, instantly making them stand out. If your room needs some darker, grounding elements it, these light switch plates could be the perfect way to tie your space together.
Love the idea of metal wall plates, but I want something a bit lighter than bronze? Nickel is one of the more popular options right now, and we carry an extensive list of styles in this material. Brushed nickel in particular, is an elegant choice, as it gives the metal a slightly rough look that helps to disguise fingerprints and smudges. If you have any elements of gray in your room design, nickel is the perfect material to complement your style.
Brass is a good option for those who want a golden hue that isn’t too overpowering. Of course, polished brass can be very yellow in tone, but most people nowadays edge towards darker hues, which is why we consider brushed brass in particular to be a great choice for your light switch plates. The brushed finish gives more of an olive tone to the metal, quieting the color just enough so that it blends in with your surrounding décor.
Finally, we can’t ignore the resurgence of wallpaper in modern home design. With new patterns, colors, and even new, more accessible ways of applying wallpaper, many homeowners opt for paper over paint these days. If you’re one of them, consider a Paper-It wall plate, which is specifically designed to be covered in wallpaper so that it blends seamlessly with your walls.
