Switch Plates and Home Updates

A friend recently completed a total DIY kitchen remodel. I was alternately proud and terrified. It’s a huge undertaking, in my humble opinion, and even if it’s totally do-able from a DIY standpoint, it’s still an overwhelming proposition for me.

Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to whip up one of those HGTV remodels from the floor up, but it’s not in my budget and the thought of having my kitchen out of order for an extended period of time really terrifies me. However, there really are easy, low cost alternatives to a complete gut and remodel. Simple, inexpensive updates that give an updated or finished designer look aren’t that hard to do.

I’ve recently updated my cabinetry with new hardware, it took us a couple of hours one Saturday afternoon. It probably took longer to decide on a design and finish than it did to install. Next up the plan is to install a custom tile back splash and all new switch plates to coordinate with my cabinet hardware and new sink fixture. These really are easy, inexpensive, weekend projects that can make a big impact.

My finish of choice is oil rubbed bronze. But, it’s safe to say you can find finishes in just about any color, material, and design. Wood, copper, tile, ceramic, even brushed nickel switch plates. Swapping out switch plates requires a screw driver and very little time.
