Wallplate Screws

Although often underestimated, the wallplate screw holds the potential to either make or break the cohesion of your decor. Despite their modest size, the right choice of wallplate screws significantly contributes to the overall visual harmony of your space, emphasizing the critical role that attention to detail plays in home design. Select screws that align with the finish of your wallplates, ensuring a seamless and cohesive aesthetic throughout your living environment.

Or, add a bit of depth and texture to your space with a mixed materials look by contrasting the finish of your wall screws with the finish of your wallplate! For example, if you have both bronze and black details and fixtures in your bathroom, you can pair a black wallplate with bronze screws for a pop of bold eye-catching accent that can really tie the whole room together.

NOTE: All wallplates automatically ship with complimentary matching wallplate screws.

Wall Guards

In high traffic/touch areas of your home or business, it can feel like an uphill battle trying to keep spaces feeling fresh and tidy. Clear wall guards are unobtrusive decor accents that pair with wallplates to protect the paint or wallpaper surrounding your light switches from fingerprints, dirt, and smudges. Low profile and easy to clean and install, these sleek accessories are an easy way to care for your home and extend the life and luster of your spaces.

Dimmer Knobs

Dimmer knobs are the unsung heroes of lighting control, offering the ability to adjust the ambiance of a room with precision. Beyond their functional aspect, these knobs can also be a design statement. Choose dimmer knobs that complement your decor style—whether it's a classic rotary design for a vintage touch or a sleek, modern slider for a contemporary look. The ability to control lighting levels adds versatility and a touch of luxury to your space.
