I am redoing my kitchen and the back splash is a silver (bluish) metal and glass, not "brushed nickel", which has too much of a brownish tint to match. These match perfectly since they are a silver color. The switch plates are good quality and will look excellent with the outlets I purchased (which are the "nickel color", because there is no silver, but blends well. I would purchase these again. Shipping was fast and the order was correct. I had ordered a single unit to assess the color - the nickel, then tried the brushed aluminum which I ordered multiples of. Customer service is top notch.
