4. Get a Live Art

There are 100s of live art for light switches people sell online, especially on Etsy, but I also have found some of them in other places like Amazon and eBay.

Not just humans, you can get cat, and dog faces as they look so cute or cute angry faces (if you are a cat person or dog person).

5. Install It Inside Your Closet

Now this one is something out of this world and I do not think this is a good design.

Look, they have installed the light switch inside the closet. What! How will you going to access it if you need to turn it on quickly?

But then I thought, no this one is also helpful if you have kids in the house, who constantly disturb you all the time (but you enjoy it).

So get this one if have the same situation.

6. Hone Your Art Skills Over the Switch

7. An Unique Handmade Switch Cover

I do not know what the language is but it looks awesome.

The Eagal (I assume) is something that inspires one to go hard in life and try once more or get things done like an Alpha.

If you are a football fan then this kind of design may suit your wall to feel bold again.

8. Get Your World Map

If you are a history lover like me who likes to explore the world then this light switch cover is for you.

Just cut the world map into different portions and add each portion to different switches to cover the whole world.

9. Just Paint the Switch

Yes just paint the switch with an eye-catching color or a happy face like this one.

It is the simplest and easiest option to cover up the light switch.

10. Add Stickers

If you have a few stickers in the house then you can add them to create a design. Not something messy like this one. But in a different way that you like.

For example, border it with black tape and then use some emoji stickers to add a happy touch to it. The ideas are endless.
