My new push-button light switches and forged cover plates arrived in the mail earlier this week. This was a little bit of house bling that I’ve wanted to add for some time and finally justified when my new compact fluorescent lightbulbs required me to eliminate a couple of dimmer switches.
Old dimmer switches:
The push-button switches arrived well-packaged and it took me just a few minutes to install all three of them. I only ordered three in order to keep my cost down (one switch and forged single wall plate costs $25), and because Ms. Bungalow wasn’t completely sold on the idea of these old-fashioned switches. Now that the work is done, we both agree the switches are a great detail. I’m planning to swap out more of the toggles for push-buttons gradually as funds allow.
