So you bought a ton of white switch plates because you assumed that was the easiest choice to go with your decor. And while it’s nice to have a simple outlook on things, maybe you are tired of the way they look, or you have kids now who want to really want to customize their rooms. This is where having white switch plates come in handy, because they can be so easily be decorated to your liking.
Ceramic or steel gloss switch plates can be painted much as any wall would be. You want to use wall paint and not arts and crafts paint, as that can run and not look as bright and beautiful. Try different patterns, color combinations and brush strokes for different desired effects.
For plastic switch plates, these are great for kids to decorate with washable marker, that way they can always change the design if they don’t like it anymore. Those kinds of materials will rub off rather easily. As they get older or change their tastes and likes, they can change how their switch plate represents them!
So don’t be afraid to get a little creative with them. Although they seem a small accessory for the home, a newly designed switch plate can have a big impact!
