How ’bout a switch, or two?

Picture this: You've spent countless hours researching and designing your beautiful new kitchen with a stunning tile backsplash. You're ready for the final touches. And your electrician installs the typical white, plastic outlet and switch plates.

It's like the music stopped and you're thinking to yourself, "What's wrong with this picture? Something doesn't look right."

I'll tell you what went wrong, you forgot about the details! And perhaps you weren't aware of the possibilities. Allow me to introduce you to Legrand light switches and outlet solutions. They take the ugly out of switches. One quick look at this video and you'll be switching things up asap!

You don't believe me yet? Take for example my recent client, who installed a fabulous new backsplash. I really wanted the switch plates to reinforce the same geometric shape and feel of the rustic stone and glass backsplash. Certainly a boring plastic outlet cover wasn't going to cut it. We selected switch plates from the Legrand Adorne collection which are designed by Hubbardton Forge and really are works of art. Not to mention, they are as just as functional as they are beautiful.

We spent all this time carefully selecting the perfect backsplash that reflected my clients taste, it just didn't feel right to overlook the details. I think we made the right choice!

Since you have to have switches and outlets in every room, why not select something that reflects your style? These outlets and switch plates are works of art that can really make the difference in any room in your house. The only problem is, once you replace one, you are going to want to replace them all! It's addicting!

Legrand also offers some pretty great solutions for those unsightly outlets (and I mean pretty!). Take for example this clever pop-up outlet that disappears when not in use! Or the loveliest USB port you've ever seen!
