Don’t Touch the Wall, and Don’t Cover the Switchplates With Wallpaper

July 22, 2018


A little hard to see in the photo, but there is dirt all around the switch plate, particularly to the left. This wall is painted, but wallpaper will become soiled when touched, too.

Even clean hands have oils in them, and, over time, this can leave stains on painted and papered walls. This is why I always “lecture” my clients to touch the switch, not the paper.

It’s also a good reason to not cover switch plates with wallpaper.
