Anthropologie’s Adorable $22 Light Switch Plate That Keeps Selling Out Is Finally in Stock — and You’ll Want One for Every Room
As a design lover, I couldn’t be more grateful that, in the year 2024, we now have pretty products like the Frame TV or Windmill AC to replace clunky, bland-looking home basics. (Because what’s not to love about a flat-screen that looks like framed artwork!?) That said, every space still has its built-in eyesore spots, like routers, call boxes, and thermostats. If you live in a super-old building like me, I’d argue that light switch plates fall under this category, too. All the ones in my pre-war apartment came with dated-looking covers painted in the same “landlord special” shade as my walls (IYKYK).
Enter Anthropologie: I discovered that the editor-favorite brand carries the most charming switch plate covers — and they’re surprisingly trendy. You’ve probably seen wiggle motifs or scalloped edges recently dominating furniture and decor, and now Anthropologie’s switch plates let you bring the look to any (or every) room of your house on a smaller, low-stakes scale. I’ve been keeping an eye on these beauties because they kept selling out, but now they’re officially back in stock (for the time being!) to make your light switches look — dare I say — cute.
What Is the Anthropologie Wiggle Switch Plate?
Anthropologie’s wiggle switch plates are squiggly covers designed to accent your light switches (and outlets!) in style. They can accomodate both single and double rocker or toggle-style switches, plus multiple outlets, starting at $22. These also come in five different colors, depending on where you’re styling them and how much of a contrast you want against your wall paint: light sand (which is currently backordered), pink, kelly green, bronze, and matte black. You can mix and match throughout your home, or stock up on a few of the same shade to keep things cohesive — although even one on its own adds instant character! Each panel includes the necessary hanging hardware, too.
What Anthropologie Reviewers Are Saying
Average rating: 4.1/5 stars
“Just love these unique brass colored plates. They add that little bit of something special in our powder room.” —Melyssa
“It adds such a cute and quirky touch to my main entrance. I love it! I’m ordering another for my plug below the light switch too.” —Alyx
“I bought 3 of these for different rooms and I love them! Everytime I turn on/off the light, my heart flutters a bit. I love the pop of character it gives to a room. A few other readers have mentioned the screws – I had no issues installing 2 of these, but did have an issue with the 3rd. I expect I will need to tighten the screws in the third every so often because they are a little loose, but thats ok with me.” —Walker
While some reviewers mentioned that you’ll likely need to use your own screws, the majority still recommended buying these for their stylish, room-enhancing appeal. Ultimately, at just $22, Anthropologie’s wiggle switch plate covers transform any light switch or outlet into a fun focal point — because if you can’t hide ’em, might as well make them look design-forward. Best of all, you can hang these in any space, from your kitchen to your bathroom to your bedroom.
