They carry affordable wall plates in stainless steel, black, bronze, antique brass, brown, oil rubbed bronze, polished brass, satin brass…the list goes on!


Kyle Design’s Large Variety of Switch Plate Finishes

So whatever color scheme you’re looking to match, you’ll find what you need in Kyle Switch Plates’ online switch plate super store. Shop Switch Plates by Color and see what we’re talking about (and don’t miss the “View All” button to see the entire selection!)

Best Switch Plate Selection on the Web

Whether you’re looking for difficult to find finishes, or just looking for a tricky combination – Kyle Switch Plates has the biggest selection. Sometimes even the simplest switch plates can’t be found at your neighborhood hardware store (example: white 4-gang Decora Rocker switch plate). If that’s the case with you, check out the variety of standard, large gang, oversized, and combination switch plates at Kyle Switch Plates.

Don’t Forget the Switches!

Make it easy on yourself and buy everything in one place. Getting new switch plates? Order the coordinating switches and outlets so you have everything you need when it’s time to install.

Make a list and check it thrice.

Not twice – but three times (at least!) Walk through the room and make a list of every switch plate, switch, outlet, and dimmer. Make note if the switch is a single-pole or three way, and if the outlets are duplex or decora style, regular or GFCI. This will save you the hassle (and cost) of making an exchange for the wrong parts or placing a second order because you missed something when you counted the first time. Trust us, it happens all the time!

If any of the terms in the above paragraph confused or intimidated you, visit Kyle Switch Plates’ Tips for Choosing the Right Switch Plates page and that should clear some things up.

Posted by Kyle Design on February 12, 2013

Whether your older home has a broken switch or your painter threw out your old style switch plates, Kyle Switch Plates can get you set up with the right replacement parts for your low voltage lighting system. If you’re not familiar with low voltage lighting (and quite possible, your electrician isn’t either!) – don’t panic! There is a solution, even if the parts you currently have have been discontinued.

Identify Your Low Voltage System

Determine which brand your system is by visiting Kyle Switch Plates’ Low Voltage Lighting Systems Identification Guide. There, you’ll find tons of great pictures of different types of low voltage light switches and switch plates, and you’ll find out which replacement parts will work for you.

Find New Replacement Parts – Light Switches, Relays, and Switch Plates

Once you know which system you have – GE, Bryant, Touch Plate, Remcon, or Sierra – you can buy brand new parts from Kyle Switch Plates. They also have wiring guides and can help you over the phone if you’re not sure which replacement parts go with your system.

Keep in mind that many of the switches you see in the picture above have been discontinued, which means that the replacement parts you purchase will look updated. But the newer designs are compatible with what you currently have. If your unsure about what parts are compatible with your system, just call Kyle Switch Plates and they can walk you through the process of purchasing compatible replacement parts for your specific low voltage lighting system.
