Etsy: Little Details – Switch Plates

January 31, 2011

As a home renter I am always looking for those easy little changes I can make to put my personal stamp on a place (personal, not permanent).  Years ago I discovered one of the best ways to do this was by changing out the standard white/beige switch plates  with more decorative ones of my own choosing.  I have done this with two of the light switches in our one-bedroom apartment and plan to do more, when I find more pieces I want to use.  Etsy, as always, is a great place to start my search and I have found many possibilities, so that my problem is now choice, there are just too many good choices!

So, here we are, for my consideration:

damask switch plate from funkychickendesign

aspens switch plate by ArtistSwitchPlates

peeping owl switch plate by woodendoll

There you have it, my favorites, so far.  Have you ever used a decorative switch plate to liven up your home?  What about any fantastic etsy finds?  Share, share, share!

    Joani I have covered our switch plates st times with wallpaper, very easy and you can get old sample books from the paint store. Lots of choices and enexpensive though I do like to support Etsy.
