Toggle, Outlet, Dimmer Switches For Wall Switch Plates
What color switches should I use with my switch plates?
There are different approaches to choosing your switch color with a part of the choice resting on the variety of devices needed to deal with your lighting needs. Will you need four-way switches? 20A outlets to run heavy duty appliances? Combination switch/outlet devices for tight spots? Specialty dimmers to control too-bright lights?
Generally speaking, you will need a consistent electrical device color within a single room or area. It is perfectly acceptable to change colors throughout your property, for instance satin nickel switches with stainless steel plates in a kitchen, bright red switches on a dramatic accent wall, black outlets in a bathroom with black marble counters or tiling, or pleasing almond light switches in a bedroom.
