        Power Point Covers. The Ultimate Guide.

        Power point covers, also known as powerpoint cover plates, may seem like small and insignificant details in the grand scheme of things, but they can significantly impact a room's overall look and feel. 

        When choosing power point cover plates, there are a few key things to consider. The first is the material. Plastic covers are the most common and budget-friendly option, but they may not have the same durability and aesthetic appeal as other materials like stainless steel or wood. Metal covers, such as stainless steel, can add a touch of sophistication to a room but are more expensive.

        Another factor to consider is the size of the covers. It's essential to seek out the model or part number of the power point or light switch to ensure a proper fit. An example of a white cover or skin for a C2025-WE Clipsal power point is a C2025C-WE. In addition, you'll want to choose covers that match the style of the room. You may opt for sleek, minimalist covers if you have a modern home. On the other hand, ornate, decorative covers may be better if you have a more traditional home.

        How to replace yellowed, faded, or discoloured power point covers?

        Powerpoint covers can become discoloured over time due to various factors, such as exposure to sunlight, heat, and humidity. This can make them appear yellowed, faded, or discoloured. Replacing the interchangeable cover is a simple DIY job and an inexpensive way to improve the appearance of your room.

        How to remove and replace faded or damaged covers?

        To remove and replace a powerpoint cover, follow these simple steps:

        1. Pinch or grab the sides of the cover with your fingers.
        2. Gently pull the cover plate away from the wall, using a steady, even motion.
        3. If the cover is not easily removed by pulling on the sides, you may need to try pinching or grabbing the top or bottom of the cover instead or use a flat-bladed screwdriver.

        TOP TIP: Be careful not to damage the wall while removing the cover. Suppose the powerpoint cover is difficult to remove. In that case, you may need to run a Stanley knife or sharp blade around the perimeter of the wall plate to cut away possible paint residue, then use your fingers or a flat-blade screwdriver to gently pry it away from the wall.
