I especially hate the old round, bisque-colored ones that are throughout each room. But just this week, I made it my mission to improve the appearance of the outlets on one floor of our house (the finished basement).
At Home Depot, I came across a life changing, money saving solution to my I-hate-my-electrical-outlets obsession. In the electrical aisle, I found the duplex outlet cover from Taymac, which completely covers existing outlets!
Here's one of the outlets before:
In a few minutes, I was able to replace all 13 outlets. Now they recede rather than call attention to themselves...
