Wall Plate Covers

Are you tired of not properly covering wires, switches, and outlets or if they are covered have those ugly plastic wall plate covers? It is time that you look into getting some fabulous plate covers. Don't leave your home remodeling job unfinished by allowing your light switches and power outlets to go uncovered.  Not only is this not pleasant to look at it can also be dangerous and someone could get hurt. It is important to the safety of your family that every light switch and power outlet in your home is covered with wall plate covers.

Safety is always the most important thing when it comes to your home. If your home's insulation and electrical wiring are exposed behind your power outlet, you need to cover them. Uncovered power outlets and light switches leave dangerous wires and insulation exposed. When these things are left uncovered children as well as pets can get injured, therefore it is important to properly cover them with non-current conducting outlet covers. Electrical wiring can cause house fires and electrical shock and exposed wiring pulsing with an electric current is dangerous, children, adults, and pets can be shocked if they touch the wiring.

Wall Plates

Many people are looking for DIY articles on how to replace the wall plates in their houses. This will cover how to get the correct one, how to go about replacing it, and general information regarding possible uses of plate covers and other such options. Arnev Products is one of the best places to get these kinds of plate covers because of the wide selection, easy ordering, and easy-to-read instructions. With some time, you can set up as many types of plate covers in your home as you could want, all based on whatever room design you are planning.

Choosing the right wall plates is first a matter of choosing the room design. Always have a clear plan in mind before making any changes to your home, to avoid having to go back and make further changes all over again. This can extend from simple questions, such as 'what do I want to do with this room?' to more complicated ones such as 'what color do I want to make the accent wall?' Once you've determined what you want to do with the room, choosing the correct wall plate is as easy as considering your color palate and picking the right one from the online catalog.

To replace the wall plates in your room, always make sure that the electricity is turned off to that portion of the house. While you will not be changing anything electrical, having the plate cover off does expose the wiring underneath, and safety is a vital factor in any kind of do-it-yourself home repair or upgrades project. With the breaker turned off, a regular screwdriver should be able to be used to remove the existing screws and pull the plate away. From there, put the new plate into position and lightly thread each screw in - only once you have all the screws into place should you then tighten the screws to finish the installation.

With a wide enough selection to compliment any color palette, Arnev Products can meet any need you might have. Ordering from the website is incredibly easy as all you have to do is search based on the type of wall plates that you are looking for and choose the right color and make for you. Some examples to consider is that you can get plate covers that come in a variety of colors, as well as ones that come in metallic patterns, such as themed outdoors plates or even southwestern.

Arnev Products has a proven history of client satisfaction and is, frankly, one of the best places to get wall plates for a DIY-style home project.
Wall Plate

The wall plate is a popular hardware item within homes—popular to the point that many people never give them much thought. Electrical outlets are commonly placed within every room of homes, offices, and other places that people visit indoors, and even outdoors in some cases. You use your outlets to many different ends and appreciate outlets that have been conveniently placed. In the past, outlets were often located near the floorboards, but now, renovated and newer homes are being designed with outlets that are installed higher for added convenience. This makes it even more important to have outlet coverings that are both safe and stylish. In many homes, a wall plate with a unique design or color patterns will be the option of choice for homeowners looking for a distinct style.

Function and Aesthetics

Electricity is something that everyone depends on. To participate normally in modern society, electricity is essential to daily life, nothing less than an absolute necessity. This means that electrical wires are installed throughout homes everywhere to provide the power that you need to run your appliances and provide your home with light. The ubiquity of electricity has led to the ubiquity of the wall plate, for purposes of both safety and aesthetic enhancement. These simple covering devices shield electrical wires from exposure, and plates can also be used to cover up the cracks that can develop around drywall near electrical outlets. Your home's appearance what you work to improve, and the safety that you take for granted there, would be diminished at best without the function and style of these multi-purpose coverings.

Many Uses

Every homeowner is concerned with safety, but if you are childproofing your home, it is even more important. The wall plate can be used as a safeguard for children and pets, but you can also add other safety features that will give you added assurance. For instance, outlet plugs can easily be installed in outlet coverings, thus allowing you to both protect your outlets, and, more importantly, lessen the risk of injury within your home.

You Can Still Have Style

Many safety hardware items in your home offer protection, but do not look visually appealing. However, these outlet coverings are designed for safety purposes and to make your home more stylish. You can choose from many design options that will add elegance and flair to your home. However, many homeowners opt for more traditionally styled coverings that blend in with the wall and create a more uniform look. No matter what you are looking for, you can find coverings that match your taste exactly. The wall plate is often made of plastic, which makes it more durable for added safety.

Wall Plate Covers Used in Commercial Spaces

Wall plate covers for commercial designers are often limited to inexpensive plastic covers or covers that do not match the carefully planned interiors of commercial spaces. Particularly when interiors are accessed by the public, a cohesive design is important and details are likely to stand out.  For this reason, having matching or complementary wall plate covers is vital to any finished design scheme, whether that scheme is ultra-modern or conservative and traditional.  At Arnev Products Inc, we understand that commercial design needs custom wall plates and sockets that work in high-end design situations and not just for home use. If you have millions of potential customers about to view a design, be sure that your design incorporates all the right fixture details from Arnev first.

The major task in finding wall plate covers for use in commercial design is in locating covers that are design-appropriate but also suit the needs of commercial spaces where multiple switches, sockets, and combination outlets are normal rather than the exception.  Single light switch plates are not likely to be of use in these scenarios and having numerous switches or outlets at one central point is more common, whether that is operation lights for a showroom or numerous outlets in a commercial kitchen space.  Arnev understands this and offers over fifty configurations of switch plates, allowing commercial designers full access to a range of high-end design options while still meeting customer needs for utility and flexibility of use.

A need for wall plate covers that coordinate with the design interior is also important in commercial spaces.  It is not just residential homes that seek matching or complimentary light switches. These coordinating elements are just as - if not more - important in a commercial setting where thousands of people may see a space's interior at any given time.  These details are of high importance in pulling the space together for consumers who may spend money depending on their impression of an overall commercial space or restaurant.  Imagine losing customers over something so easy to install! Because of this, finding the right plate covers is particularly important.  Arnev offers a variety of cover options from many metals finishes to wood or glass either in mirrored, clear, or various styles that provide a sleek, modern flash of color.  Vintage or antique plate cover styles are also available for more traditional or conservative spaces.  Utilitarian ability may also be a consideration in spaces such as kitchens where the ease of cleaning may make certain plate styles preferable.  Whichever design options are needed, Arnev offers a wide selection and variety to suit the needs of any commercial designer.

Glass Wall Plates

Having a mirrored wall and using glass wall plates have many advantages in your home and office. It is a look that manages to combine both modern art as well as a classic formality in a way that is both classy and elegant. As a result, many people opt to get an entire section of a room, or an entire wall in some cases, replaced by such mirrored surfaces. Depending on the room or office that you're looking to put these into, however, you can come across some issues when it comes to being able to have both power outlets as well as wall switches on a mirrored wall.

Glass wall plates in your home

There are two main places to use a mirrored wall in your home, and both come down to the reason of wanting to make a smaller room look bigger. No matter if you're using a closet, office, or bathroom, having the mirrored panel wall can increase the feeling of the room's size. Traditionally, the most commonplace for the glass surface paneling in your home is the bathroom due to the need to have a mirror in the morning for any cosmetic issues, grooming, and so forth.  You still need, however, glass wall plates to be able to have power outlets for things like electric shavers and hair dryers, as well as light switches or toggles to control the bulbs in the room.

Glass walls in offices and storefronts-

In addition to having glass walls and glass wall plates in your office to create the impression of a larger office, the simple fact of the matter is that it also provides a level of security against thieves and shoplifters. Having a mirrored surface as one of your walls can make it so that you have an expanded set of sightlines over the scope of your store and can keep an eye on anyone who might be intending to rob you. As always, however, the same issues of needing glass wall plates come into being - no matter what type of office or store you're using, you'll need to be able to plug in the various devices that let you operate your business.

For decades, Arnev has been producing some of the finest quality walls and switch plates for homes and offices all around the United States.
