This matte black decorative metal outlet cover is a nice upgrade from the standard white plastic. Dark colors recede, which means that this outlet doesn't jump out at you as much as a white one does. Up close it has a nice edge design to it which adds a classy touch. I much prefer either these dark covers or to paint the white covers to match the walls. The black is an especially nice touch if you have other touches of black throughout your room.
Very nice wall plate! This is a very durable and stylish wall plate. This wall plate will go well with any accent style of decorating, or for the rustic/mechanical style. I like the polished bronze look of the plate, it gives a very appealing look and feel for my style of decor. It is easy to install, being it only has one screw to install. Highly recommend.
Ivory and brown plastic double outlet covers are okay, but this flat black cover makes a statement in a traditional setting. It is slightly oversize and it is made of solid zinc.
I got this for a guest room in our home with tangerine walls and silver highlights. This will be mated to a flat black double outlet, replacing an ivory one. This will really look good on the wall against the light colored background.
This outlet cover is very high quality! It has a very attractive black matte finish, and once you hold it in your hand you will realize that it is solid metal and heavy duty. It is well-painted on both sides (see pictures), and it comes with a nice long finished matching screw for attachment (see picture). It has a very contemporary design with raised edges that really set it apart. This was just the thing for our family room wall. I recommend this wall outlet cover due to its high quality. It will last far longer than any plastic outlet cover! Well worth it!
Detail are important! The flat/matte black Architectural Decorative Single Duplex Outlet cover adds to details I desire in my home. It takes away from the boring builder outlet covers and modernizes my home to my style. The rich black blends perfectly to my decor and gives my wall a splash of accent, but it is not overwhelming. Installation was simple and I was not inconvenience with time.
Worked well for my needs, I had an off white plate on a white wall so this contrast in color really makes the outlet a decorative piece, it is always good to easily spot an outlet without having to do a scavenger hunt for one. This is an outlet so not much to really say about it, this plate has a flat/ matte black finish so it is not shiny at all. Depending on the paint you have and your style, I would recommend this for walls with a light finish, Whites, Light Grays, and etc. The instructions and tips if you did not already know, are located on the back of the packaging.
Good quality wall plate. I love the matte black. It matches all the accessories and door knob for my bathroom. My home was built in 83 so I am in the process of replacing all wall plates. I just do not like plastic wall plates. This wall plate by no means looks cheap. The only problem is the screws that attach the wall plate are just too long. I will be replacing the actual plugs all over the house so that will take care of the problem.
This single duplex outlet plate is really nice. It is weighty and made well. Very nice quality. The flat/matte black matches the blacks, stainless and bronzes in my kitchen perfectly. Installation is easy with just one screw and it seems a bit longer than the norm which is greatly appreciated. The finish is gorgeous and it's durability is very impressive. It is thick and sturdy. I highly recommend!
Fairly heavy metal face plate.
Nice, solid plating: Color is between shiny and matte and what I refer to as a "soft" black. Soft black is good because it is more subtle than a hard, shiny black that draws the eye immediately.
The screw provide is a little too long and annoying the metal the screw is made of is too soft allowing it to be easily damaged when trying to get it into the wall. A little paint can fix the issue.
Great plate all in all.
