Light Switches and Electrical Outlets Covered in Style

Through the efforts of such legendary inventors as George Westinghouse and Thomas Edison the power of electricity was tamed and used in ways that would forever change our daily lives. The first commercial power plants were constructed towards the end of the 1800’s and by the early 1900's the race to power all American homes quickly gained speed. Soon, light switches and electrical outlets became common place fixtures in virtually every room of the American home.

Even as utilitarian as light switch and electrical outlets are, they can be transformed into a stylish wall accent when covered with the right decorative light switch plate covers and electrical outlet covers. If you have more complicated configurations of switch and electrical outlets, say an outlet that includes multiple outlets and/or switches, it is a good idea to refer to a Switchplate & Outlet Cover Configuration Guide to ensure that you purchase the right cover for these more complex outlets. The choice of style of outlet covers and switchplates should complement the look of the surrounding room. This is especially true when shopping for covers that will be installed in smaller rooms. For example, it is important to choose switch and outlet covers that coordinate well with bath accessory hardware and the bathroom sink faucet when shopping for switch plates and outlet covers for that bathroom remodel. Fortunately, Shop 4 Classics offers a wide variety of styles of switch plates and outlet covers. Handcrafted bronze and copper switch and outlet covers are ideal for the Arts and Crafts bungalows and rustic style homes. Decorative solid brass switch plates and outlet covers are good choices for Victorian as well as traditionally styled home.
