In the past, LED bulbs weren’t dimmable but that has now changed so that nearly all LED bulbs having dimming capabilities. While LED technology is advancing at top speed, the style aspects of it aren’t always keeping up. If you want a decorative LED dimmer switch plate, you will have a very hard time finding one to suit your tastes. Pretty much all of the LED dimmer switch plates are just plastic or metallic. If you already have a decorative dimmer switch plate, then you can choose to buy just the LED dimmer module. However, it is usually about the same cost to buy the module with the LED dimmer switch plate included. It is easy to turn this switch plate into a unique stylish element to the room.
To decorate the LED dimmer, you will need an exacto knife, glue, and paint brushes (for applying the glue in thin, even coats). First, you need to remove the knob from the LED dimmer switch. One of the easiest ways to decorate the dimmer switch is to apply crafts paper but you can paint on it directly too. Just make sure that you don’t get too close to the LED dimmer module opening because then you won’t be able to turn the switch well!
