Light switch plates were once strictly utilitarian items—a humble piece of hardware. Switchplates and outlet covers were simple wallplates and one didn't think of them much, as long as they fulfilled their function.
Switch Hits showcases what happens when artists, thinking outside the (electrical) box, apply their design talent to an overlooked object, elevating switch plates into a realm of decorative accessory…dare I say…a piece of art.
Coincidence it may be, but a modern symbol for inspiration is the light bulb, the very thing energized by the flick of a switch. The source of Switch Hits artists' inspiration for decorative light switchplates may be an idea for an image, a particular color combination, or even a newly-developed technique.
The results: Light switch plates that blend in or contrast. Switchplates that are funky or maybe more traditional. Even light switch plates that draw attention, create smiles, and produce exclamations of "Oh, WOW" when you and your guests enter a room.
With thousands of original switchplate designs incorporating images of nature and culture, history and contemporary design, abstraction or representation, your personality can be affordably reflected throughout your home. So whether you are adding finishing touches to your home décor or just beginning your decorating adventure, shopping for and installing decorative light switch plates can be fun. So…go have some fun.
