One of the best parts about metal ceiling tiles is that they are incredibly versatile. Not only can you use them on your ceiling, but you could also use them as a backsplash or as wall art. However, because of how unique the tiles are, you’ll want to make sure that they tie into a room entirely when you are installing them.
Many home and business owners overlook switch plates when they are installing metal ceiling tiles. For instance, they may introduce a metal tile backsplash but then leave the existing boring, white switch plate on the wall. The switch plate can look awkward and out of place. When installing metal ceiling tiles in a room, using metal switch plate covers can go a long way toward tying the room together.
Using Switch Plates To Match A Ceiling
One of the best ways to tie a ceiling in with the rest of a room is by using metal switch plate covers. You could find a switch plate cover that matches the pattern and color of your ceiling tiles. To do so, you could either purchase a switch plate independently, or you could create a switch plate out of excess tile that you used for your ceiling. No matter what you choose, the switch plate should help tie the ceiling into the rest of the room.
Matching Switch Plates To Backsplashes
If you are installing a kitchen backsplash, you’ll want to make sure that the switch plate matches the background. Otherwise, the switch plate will stand out as an eyesore and take away from the beautiful backsplash that you had just installed. We recommend using the same tile for the switch plate as you do the backsplash, which will allow you to conceal a light switch.
Use The Switch Plate As Wall Art
Another useful feature of metal ceiling tiles is that they serve as beautiful wall art. You can apply this concept to your switch plates. Even if you don’t have metal ceiling tiles elsewhere in your room, consider using an independent switch plate as a piece of wall art.
