If you are replacing light switch covers in a dining room or in a living room, a more sophisticated approach is in order. Depending upon the colors already in the room, you could be looking for a light switch cover that blends into the background or one that coordinates with the colors of throw pillows or wall coverings.
Because the house we recently bought was unfinished, things like light switch covers catch my imagination. It may be just a small thing, but a carefully chosen light switch cover can make a difference.
A light switch cover or outlet plate may well be a place to add touches of art that you admire. Is Van Gogh a favorite of yours? Well, you will probably never be able to own one of his paintings for real, but his art may still find its way into your daily life. Every time you turn the lights on, you can think about his amazing brush strokes. You can mentally plan your next trip to the museum to see his paintings in the original. No amount of popularizing of his work can take the place of that!
A wide variety of art reproductions are available to cover your light switch plate. I have added a few here. The famous cat posters make a stylish choice. Starry Starry Night and a cafe scene, both by Vincent Van Gogh are favorites of many people.
Maybe one of these switch plates will appeal to you.
