Home: Switch Plates

Switch Plate-Before
Notice how the screws aren't aligned?

Switch Plate-After
This looks much better!
I aligned the screws on the electrical outlet plates, too

Kevin’s grandfather was a carpenter who took pride in his work; Lee was a great grandparent, mentor and teacher to Kevin.  One of the things he taught Kevin was to align the screws on switch plates to make all of them either vertical or horizontal.  Though it’s a small touch, lined-up screws are visually pleasing and show you take pride in the details.  I completed this task in about 20 minutes and (I know this sounds crazy) feel good whenever I look at our switch plates and electrical outlet plates.
