MB HLW - HOME LIVING: WEST, Tuesday, May 8, 2012 3 LIGHTING LIGHT SWITCH MAKEOVER BRIGHTENING UP HOMES Susan Redman An orange Linea light switch cover plate provides a small but significant detail in this industrial-style setting. THE shape of a door stopper, the profile of skirting boards, the colour of a light switch cover plate -- when it comes down to deliberating over the finer points of a decorating project, interior designers will often repeat the dictum of German-born mod- ernist architect Mies van der Rohe that God is in the details. These small-fry details of decorating may seem incidental but if chosen well they can significantly change the look of a room. Consider the humble light switch. No longer just a white plastic service pad for switch- ing on lights and other electri- cal installations, the latest crop of products has had a designer makeover. Interior stylist Sibella Court says that even an old-fashioned bathroom or kitchen can be updated by changing the switches and powerpoints to colour match or contrast with other features in the room. One of the biggest names in the light switch business HPM has capitalised on the success of its colourful Linea range with metallic cover plates to comp- lement two other collections titled Brights and Earths. Sibella Court says the colour- ful variety shows that the use of colour at home is more eclectic than it was recently. ''People are not afraid to play with colours or use a favourite one. Orange and battleship grey are two good cases in point,'' she says. But for sheer glam, Court suggests installing the Arteor range of interchangeable cover plates from LeGrand. These super-sophisticated slimline switch plates offer 17 options in exotic finishes such as stingray leather, light and dark timber or classic woven metal. Other stylish switch-hitters include the Strato and Modena Series from Clipsal. The minimal interchangeable switch surrounds come in 10 colours and can be matched to cabinetry just by choosing from Laminex laminate colours.
