Mission style switch plates
Unsurprisingly, mission style switch plates are a popular choice to include in restoring or redecorating a vintage bungalow, American foursquare, English revival, mediterrean revival, prairie style, and many other vintage house styles. Relative to the cost of the other restoration items (have you ever purchased a front door?) craftsman switch plate covers are relatively inexpensive and incorporate a big dividend in terms of increased charm factor and pleasing livability.
Craftsman switch plate covers
A wide variety of metals can be used successfully in a vintage craftsman home and it is no exception when it comes to mission style switch plates. It is hard to go wrong with hammered copper for a truly high style look, but back in the day it was not uncommon to discover all configurations of craftsman switch plate covers to be constructed of unlacquered brass, either stamped sheet brass or cast brass, that would ultimately develop to a mellow patina over the years as they were exposed not only to just the ambient air, but also the many thousands of interactions with peoples fingers. Our beveled mission switch plate offerings are available not only in unlacquered brass, but also brass with a clear coat. In addtion, you may be interested in oil rubbed bronze, antique pewter, antique brass, oil rubbed bronze with accented highlights, satin nickel, and even chrome for the bathroom or kitchen areas.
Like so many of our products, it is a good idea for us to talk on the phone just to make certain everything is configured correctly. There are several types of switches that have a toggling function, so it is extremely important that we determine which one is the correct one for your house. In addition, some craftsman switch plate covers are concave on the back and others are flat on the back in which case we need to discuss tips and techniques to help the mission style switch plates sit flush against the wall without a gap.
