May 29, 2009, Newsletter Issue #168: Decorative Light Switch Covers

Tip of the Week

Swapping out light switch covers is a quick an inexpensive way to add a decorative touch to any room. There are thousands of possibilities for decorative switch plates! Decorative light switch covers range from the plain (including colored plates to match kitchen and bathroom countertops) to the fancy (a plate that looks like a Frank Lloyd Wright doorway, or that bears the image of the Mona Lisa, or is shaped like a tractor).

Light switch plates come in different standard sizes to match your configuration. A single up-and-down switch is an S, while four wide switches (like those used in dimmers) are an M, and so forth.
