How do I make switch covers fit in tight spaces?

Return to Question and Answers

I bought new light switch covers only to realize the old ones has been cut to fit the space between the door trim and the switch.


The light switch covers are metal with a thin plastic trim around them. They match the rest of the switch and outlet covers in the house and they will be highly visible in the living room. Should I cut the trim for them to fit? I need 1/8" on one and 1/4" on the other. They were very expensive, so I don't really want to cut the covers if I don't have to.
