Is anyone else tired of those plain jane, white plastic outlet and switch plates?
We all know you can now get them in a variety of colours, finishes such as chrome, brushed nickel and even copper if you want to splurge a bit.
But sometimes you just want them to disappear. There are occasions where they can really destroy the fluid look of a scheme.
This is usually in smaller spaces such as powder rooms or when the genius who built the place stuck one in the middle of no where just for the sake of having another outlet.
How do you get around it? By making them blend in of course!
Did you know that you can now get outlet and switch plates in marble? This way they can blend in with your tiled wall or blacksplash. They no longer have to be so blindingly apparent!
You can also bring out those DIY skills if you don’t want to spend the extra money for a special finish.
Have a wallpapered wall? Mount some extra scrap pieces onto the switchboard plate. Or use scrapbook paper that is in a similar print or colour to help blend the plates in with the wall.
There are always creative ways to fix the tiny yet annoying problems in your home.
It’s the simple touches that count!
