Switch plates are coverings for light outlets. They house the wires keeping them from beings exposed. With today’s homes having numerous switches on the walls, it is necessary to have labels for the switches to prevent mistakes that could damage devices.
Engraving is an excellent way to label your switches. They can be custom-made to fit the overall décor of a room and improve consistency. Here are some engraving ideas for switch plates.
Name of Appliance the Switch Controls
Our homes incorporate many electrical appliances controlled from various switches. It is common to find switch plates with more than four switches in grouped. Custom engraved switch plates help you and your family remember which switch operates which device. You can engrave the name of electronic appliance the switch controls, for example, computer or television or lamp.
The Function of the Switch
Sometime back we used to have single lighting for each room. Therefore, it was easy to find the light switch. Nowadays we have accent lighting, task lighting, and recessed lighting in one place. Even bathrooms have shower lights, overhead lights, and fans. Apart from interior lights, there are several outdoor lights. The switches can be confusing to guests and children. Engraving the function of each switch on the switch plates makes your house user-friendly. Outdoor light switches can be engraved with a word like outdoor or patio. Indoor switch plates can have words like a night light, desk lamp, and entry lights. Even the doorbell switch should be engraved to make it easier to find.
On/Off Switch Labels
In an office, hotels, or large buildings many users are operating switches. If there are no labels to indicate what switch does what, they may end up switching off devices or lights in use. Engraved switch plates reduce guesswork. On/off switch labels at the top and bottom of the plates informs a user whether a switch is on or off.
