I found an amazing product that I am super excited to share with you that will fix mismatched electrical outlets and electrical outlet covers.
When we moved into our 1970s home there were several major and minor things that needed updating. One of the minor updates was the electrical outlets and covers. I prefer electrical outlets and covers in white, however our house had the outdated almond color. I bought several white outlet covers and installed them over the existing electrical outlets.
Ouch, not only is this an eye sore, but to make it worse some of my electrical outlets were dirty from years of use and some had paint on them from our painting projects. Regardless of the way they looked I was adamant on having white outlet covers so I was willing to live with the look. Then on a visit to Home Depot (of course it happened after I purchased a 10 pack of the other outlet covers) the heavens opened up and I found this amazing product!
These outlet covers create a uniform, modern appearance and save time on labor. Instead of having to uninstall and unwire the old outlets, then install and rewire new outlets these covers fit right over the existing electrical outlets. Super easy: just screw in just like you would the typical outlet covers. They retail for around $2.25 each.
I hope you found this tip helpful. If so I would love for you to share on your social media.
