Painted switch plates


This is one of the cheapest and easiest method to change the look of your switchboard. Flip your creative side and enhance the look of your room. If you aren’t a painter, then you can try abstract painting. Choose colors that will match your décor. Secure the art by adding a layer of hairspray.

Reminder switchboard idea


Do you forget to turn the lights off? How about drawing a little girl and a boy on each end of the switchboard respectively. One of them drawn turning the light off? Drag the point home with an OFF bubble speech. This helps you to remember that a switch must be switched off.

Pistachios Birds


Add some colours around the switchboard by drawing tree branches and little birds. You can use the shells of pistachios to make the colourful birds. Stick these shell on the painted tree branches with a glue gun.

These simple ideas can add a trend to your room. If drawing is trouble, you can also download readymade art and use it. Have a switchboard that tells a story instead of a dull one.
