The Top-Notch Light Switch

Jens Mortensen

Standard issue wall plate gets an upgrade with hand-painted finishes, different textures and ingeniously constructed switches.

"In a new space, I always remove all the hardware and paint. For switch plates, I like to blend them into the rest of the room rather than create a statement. I prefer metal finishes, as Plexi or plastic feels too standard. My favorite resource for switch plates—and custom hardware, period—is SA Baxter [sabaxter.com]."
