Make Your Light Switches Look Awesome With Steampunk Cover Plates

steampunk-lightswitch-plates

By Chris Scott Barr

Light switch covers aren’t usually something that I find myself very interested in. They aren’t very exciting, and if you try to replace them with a novelty cover, they just look cheesy. Of course everything looks better when steampunked, so it didn’t come as too much of a surprise when I saw these DIY light switch plates.

These are cool not only because they are unique, but some of them even add functionality to the otherwise boring switch. A candle holder, bell and even a hook for your keys are pretty cool ideas. The best part is that they aren’t too hard to make. Just a brass plate, some gears, solder paste and a few tools are all you need. Of course you’ll actually need the time and patience to make one, since it’s not something you can actually buy in a store.
