How Kyle's Plate are Made
In this close-up image, you can see a silver metal overlay on a black toggle plate.
Kyle's custom switchplates are made by adhering metal overlays with her unique etched designs onto quality metal plates.
The overlays are acid etched with designs of animals, nature and other artistic renderings. You'll find original designs for laundry rooms, playrooms, bathrooms, bedrooms, dining rooms, entries and more.
These custom switch plates take a few days to craft by hand, then they're carefully packaged and shipped out in protective boxes that ensure they'll arrive in mint condition.
Overlay Finish Options:
Kyle's unique decorative elements come in 4 attractive finishes.
Silver - the brushed nickel silver overlays are popular on black, stainless, white and chrome plates.
Brass - Kyle's brushed brass designs feature detail lines in black. it's a popular choice for black, oil rubbed bronze, ivory, brown and antique brass wall plates.
Gold - Polished gold designs are reflective, shiny embellishments without the contrasting black etchings. They are often paired with white, stainless, brown and oil rubbed bronze covers.
Copper - these striking designs are etched in a brushed copper finish, although not all designs are available in this specialty finish. They blend with coper plates well, but if you're looking to make a statement, consider a contrasting plate like black, almond or brown.
Notice that the overall shapes of the sample shown here are different? That's because some are for toggle plate openings (like the brass celestial design example), and others are for rocker or outlet plate openings.
Baked Powder Paint Finishes:
If your base plate is white, almond, ivory, brown or black, it's made from .030" steel and has a smooth, semi-gloss baked enamel finish.
Kyle has chosen these quality, metal switch plates as a base for her artwork because they are durable, won't crack or fade over time, and come in finishes that coordinate beautifully with a variety of electrical device colors.

Specialty Metal Plate Finishes:
For an even higher end look, consider these specialty finishes for your new decorative wall plate.
Stainless steel is extremely popular in kitchens since they coordinate flawlessly with kitchen appliances. Decorative stainless steel plates are residential grade .030" type 430 stainless steel. Finish is brushed satin. Goes well with silver or gold embellishments.
Chrome plates are high-polished with a shiny silver finish on durable .030" steel. To match their alluring shine, opt for a polished gold embellishment. Or, if you prefer more contrast, select brass, copper or silver embellishments with brushed finishes.
Oiled bronze plates are made from heavy .040" solid brass. They have a lacquered antique relieved rich bronze finish and are some of Kyle's best selling plates. They look best with brass or gold overlays.
Antique brass plates are also a heavy .040" solid brass. The antiqued finish has been lacquered to prevent oxidation. Like the oil rubbed bronze, the antique brass looks astonishing when embellished with Kyle's brass or gold designs.
Copper is a trend that has taken over so many kitchens this year and it's stunning! Kyle's solid copper wall plates have a heavy baked lacquer sealant. We've seen customers order decorative copper switchplates with copper, silver, gold and brass designs.
