Switch Plate Color Switch

As a designer, one of the joys about working with color combinations is that the possibilities are infinite. I'm not just referring to paint. Changing a metal or crystal color can also dramatically affect the look of the piece whether it be a knob, a finial or a switch plate. Since all of our products are made right here on our premises, custom color requests are easy to oblige.

It's always a nice surprise to see our designs wearing new color schemes. So I thought I would use this post to share some of the combos we've done with our switchplates.

Black is a popular "color" in a designer's world and we like to use it for extra drama. The architecture of the switch cover really pops when you put it with black.

Stepping outside of the rainbow for a moment, silver is a big decorating color and there are all different hues from pewter to platinum. This blank bloomer wall plate is stunning with both silver paint and metal details.
