Light Switch Plates

Most homeowners don’t put light switch plates in their design plans. While they aren’t the most important decision to consider while designing your lighting options in your home or office, it’s important to know that you’ve got options!

Switch plates may be small, but we use them every day and they’re all over our homes. Installing the right switches for your space can increase functionality and create a cohesive style.

Light switch plates come in a variety of configurations, colors, finishes and styles. Figuring out what you need as far as configuration is your first step in choosing the right light fixture switch plate. Will this switch just control one light? Is there an option for other outlets in the same place? Do you want a dimmer and can it be installed in this location? These are all questions you should ask yourself first.

Here are some very basic examples of different switches that are commonly used:


Next, you can look into your styling options. Light switch plates can come in different styles, ranging from modern to classic to contemporary. The actual switch itself is another option to consider. Do you like the classic toggle or do you prefer the flat switches? Do you want it to match the rest of your home or is now a good time to switch them all out?
