Spring has finally arrived!! Blooming flowers, butterflies, and budding trees bring that “new life” hope back after the long winter. We already know what you’re thinking. “Wouldn’t it be awesome to bring some new life to the house with some spring accents?”
Inexpensive switch plate options abound, and will add some spring pizzazz to any room or decorating style. By replacing those old switch plates you don’t even have to worry about spending too much money! One can easily create a historic feeling in their Victorian home, uniquely express their love of nature in their Log Cabin style home, or even go retro with different textures and styles. Animal lovers have a plethora of style choices, and the many options for the kid’s rooms are always a hit with the children. The current styles give homeowners and renters equal and inexpensive creative license.
Some of the more popular choices are Brainerd switch plates, which exemplify the modern aesthetic with styles like the Mirror single plate and the Architectural double plate. These switch plates are common in modern homes, although they also take inspirations from colonial styles, which can be seen in their Colonial Rope models. Truly antique switch plates will typically be much more ornate, especially those from Victorian and Renaissance eras. There are antique switch plates made with a much lower price tag, and inspired along classic lines.
Ceramic switch plates are always a well accepted option, and come in many more designs and patterns than they used to. The choices are practically unlimited. Many people underestimate ceramic switch plates, because they think of the white or off-white varieties that come standard in cheap apartments and are worn down over the years. There are many different ceramic switch plates on the market today, with designs such as interwoven leaves and vines, squares of different colored paint, or etched lines in geometric patterns. These match interior styles very well and are usually quite affordable.
