My husband thinks that installing black wall plates in every room will be too dark. Our house is decorated with Asian inspired accessories and furnishings with a lot of red, black, tan and white. I think we should be consistent and buy them for all the rooms.
There are no strict guidelines when it comes to accessorizing with black wallplates, however many of our customers do choose to have them in their bedroom, living room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom and garage.
I work for a photography studio and we badly need to buy new switch covers (ours are over 15 years old!) Would black switchplates look nice in a photo studio?
Certainly. The black finish switch plate covers are a favored choice for many commercial and retail settings including gyms, artist studios, warehouses and offices because they are low-maintenance and long-lasting. They easily hide dirt and fingerprints making them a good choice for high traffic areas.
Our kitchen countertop is made of Argentine Mahogany granite. Would black wall switch plates be the best match for this type of granite?
Black wall switchplates are an ideal choice for darker counter tops and backsplashes because they blend is smoothly unlike white plastic switch covers. For a custom look in your kitchen, black switch plates go well with many types of granite including Amendoa Capixaba, Azul Noche, Ataraksia, Autumn Brown and Baltic Mahogany.
What furnishing styles do black switch plates work well with?
Black switchplates are a complementary addition to homes that feature dark metal accents such as wrought iron chandeliers, door hinges, lamps, railings or banisters. In addition, they are appropriate for rooms featuring black lacquer chairs and tables, or black leather sofas and recliners because they will help maintain the continuity of color scheme.
I'm thinking about painting a wall in my living room a dramatic shade. Would black switchplates look good on this type of paint color?
Black switch plates are a very good choice for walls that are painted in dark dark ranging from burgundy to deep terra cotta to forest green. Electrical fixtures in lighter colors tend to seem harsh against deep rich colors and tend to distract from the overall look. We recommend swapping out both the cover plates and the electrical switches or receptacles in these situations and replacing them with black.
Would black wall plates be a good choice in a media room?
Black wall plates work particularly well in media rooms because flat panel TV's, projectors, DVD players, sound systems, receivers, speakers and other electronic equipment are most commonly manufactured in black or dark gray.
Our home has dark wood trim, molding and flooring throughout. Do you recommend black switch plates or would that be too much?
Black switch plates are particularly attractive if you are using American black walnut or exotic woods such as East Indian ebony, African wenge, or South American ziricote. Black face plates will allow the natural beauty of the woods to be the focal point of your decor. So in this situation we recommend keeping your wall plate covers dark and unobtrusive, unless you go with decorative switch plates that could complement the natural tonal variations in wood.
