Love These Excellent Quality Wall Plates ...
on August 4, 2013
The "Brainerd Architectural Quad Switch Wall Plate, Satin Nickel" is an excellent, quality fixture that is reasonably priced and readily available. The satin nickel finish coordinates well with stainless steel appliances and with brushed stainless plumbing fixtures. It looks stunning when used against granite or tumbled stone backsplashes. As a switch plate for living areas, the satin nickel finish blends nicely with gray and gray-blue backgrounds; on light or pastel backgrounds, depending on the color, it is a bit more "obvious".
The fit and finish on this item is outstanding; the clear lacquer coating is smooth and has no bubbles marring the switch plate's surface appearance. The edges of the metal plate are smooth and cleanly finished.
This style blends well with traditional décor; the design is subtle enough that it can be used with more contemporary décor. Identical switch plates, in satin nickel and other finishes, are sold online and in the big box hardware stores under several other brand names - Liberty and Allen & Roth are two. Multiple configurations, except a five-toggle switch plate - are available and you should be able to find one that meets your needs. I only wish they made a five-gang switch in this style!
