Paint the Inside of Light Switch Covers to Simplify Buying More of That Color in…

The next time you repaint a room in your home consider painting the inside of your light switch cover with same paint you use on the walls; if you ever need more of that color you can remove the cover and take it in to be matched.

Never again forget your room's paint color choice! On the inside of your light switch or outlet cover, using a permanent marker, just write the paint brand, color name, swatch number on a piece of painter's tape for quick reference. If needed, add the date you did your room makeover. Change the room color? Change the info tape! You can even add a touch of the actual paint in case you need to take it to the paint store to get a color match.
