Spruce Up Your Electrical Outlets With Decorative Covers!



When it comes to design, it's all about the details! Don't leave out your electrical outlet covers! 

Whether you're a designer working in a new space to create something unique, or a homeowner who's looking to add a little color and personality to your home, decorative electrical outlet covers can be just the thing!

The average home in the US has 70+ electrical outlets. Imagine if each outlet corresponded to the design of the room, it would bring things to the next level! Whether you're a fan of neutrals, florals, bronze, or even a bold animal print, there's an outlet cover out there that matches your taste! Decorative covers for both electrical outlets and light switches can be a low commitment design initiative and can provide just enough of a splash to satisfy the urge for chance in your home's design!

Where Can I Purchase Decorative Outlet Covers?

If you're ready to add a little bit of personality to your home's electrical outlets, you should begin researching designs and styles that you like. If you prefer a simple, but classic look, try searching local hardware stores like Lowes and Home Depot, they can also be found online on Amazon. If you're looking for more unique or custom covers, you'll want toward shops like Etsy.com. If you have something in mind, do a quick internet search to see if an option pops up, if the design you're hoping for just doesn't exist, get creative and make your own!
