From gold, rose gold, silver, white, light almond, and more, we are here to provide you with options that will fit any space. Our products are easily integrated into all kinds of home aesthetics, completely as is. 

However, that doesn’t mean we can’t embellish. At Topgreener, we are all about DIY and getting creative. If you’re on the artistic side and would like to take the extra step to personalization, we’re here to give you ideas on just how to do that. These ideas are especially great if you have some boring, old builder-grade outlet and light switch covers that you haven’t gotten around to replacing with ours.

Here are five ways you can customize your wall plates:


1. Embellish them with stickers 


Stickers have become a popular and creative way to add a personal touch to various items, and one unexpected but exciting application is decorating wall plate outlet covers. These small, mundane objects that typically blend into the background of a room can be transformed into eye-catching focal points, just as framed art is, with the right selection of stickers. 

Whether you prefer vibrant colors, intricate designs, or whimsical patterns, there is a sticker out there to suit your taste and complement your decor. By carefully choosing and arranging stickers on a wall plate outlet cover, you can instantly inject personality and charm into any space. 

Check out this fantastic example from one of our very own Topgreener employees. The gold backdrop perfectly enhances the overall design: 


It’s a simple and affordable DIY project that allows you to express your creativity while adding a touch of individuality to an otherwise overlooked element in your home. 


2. Paint them to match your wall color


If your wall is painted a unique color, and your current wall plates are builder-grade and stick out like a sore thumb, feel free to paint them to blend into your wall. Contrastingly, you can also customize by painting a pattern or design on your wall plate so it can stand out.

Painting wall plate covers is a fantastic way to customize and enhance the appearance of these often-overlooked elements in your home decor. By selecting the right color scheme and utilizing various painting techniques, you can effortlessly integrate wall plate covers into your overall design aesthetic. 

With a few simple supplies like paint, brushes, and painter’s tape, you can easily transform plain and generic wall plate covers into stylish and personalized accents that seamlessly blend with your room’s decor. 


From solid colors to intricate patterns or even artistic designs, the options are endless, enabling you to create a truly unique and eye-catching focal point on your walls. 


3. Wrap them in a wallpaper


Another way to make your builder-grade wall plates more attractive is to wrap them in the same wallpaper that’s already on your wall, or in a wallpaper pattern that attractively complements your room design. 

This creative approach allows you to seamlessly integrate wall plate covers into your room’s design scheme, creating a cohesive and visually appealing look. 


To start, choose a wallpaper that complements your existing decor or adds a pop of color and pattern to the space. Measure and cut the wallpaper to fit the size and shape of the wall plate cover, leaving some extra material for trimming. Apply wallpaper adhesive or double-sided tape to the back of the wallpaper and carefully wrap it around the removed cover, smoothing out any wrinkles or air bubbles. Trim any excess wallpaper using a craft knife or scissors. 


4. Add a 3D Element with Rhinestones or Gems


Add some bling to your space by covering your wall plates with gems or rhinestones.


5. Frame them


Framing your wall plates with old picture frames is a great way to recycle as well as personalize your design in a unique and fun way (as seen in example #5). Find a frame that is the same size as your wall plate and carefully push out the glass. Stick or nail the frame itself over your wall plate, and voila!–instant new wall plate cover design.


In conclusion, customizing your wall plate covers is a simple yet effective way to add a personal touch to your home decor. Whether you choose to paint them with vibrant colors, create intricate designs, or apply stickers, the possibilities are endless. 

Customized wall plate covers allow you to express your creativity, showcase your personal style, and create a cohesive and visually appealing space. So, unleash your imagination, gather your supplies, and start customizing your wall plate covers to elevate your home decor to a whole new level.
