Easy Fix for Ugly Outlets! No Wiring Involved!


Is this what your old wall outlets look like? I found a quick fix at Home Depot that won't break the bank and you don't have to hire an electrician.

Here is what they could look like simply by changing the plate. It's one screw and nothing dangerous. All you need is a flathead screwdriver.

I work at Home Depot in many departments including electrical, and one day saw these plates in the store. You don't have to change the inside of the outlet, simply change the wall plate and it lines up so you can plug in items just like you would previously. This changes the look of you room and they are less than $4 each.
