Electrical Switch & Outlet Finishes

Electrical Switch & Outlet Finishes

Compare device finishes and find the best cover plates for each. You may like your light switches & covers to match, or you might find that mixing and matching covers and devices can make a statement in your newly updated room.

Try white and stainless in a kitchen, red and black in a garage, ivory and polished brass in a formal dining room - you get the idea. Browse coordinating finishes below to find the perfect pairing for your home.

Many devices come in finishes that have matching plates. Other, more specialized finishes don't have covers with an exact match finish, but pair very well with many of our quality metal cover plates.

Devices with Matching Covers:

White Devices

White Devices & Cover Plates

Where to Use: Largest variety of electrical devices in gloss and satin sheens. You'll find toggles, rockers, duplex and GFCI outlets, dimmers, phone, cable, ethernet and more. Can pair with any finish cover plate since it's completely neutral. Great way to freshen up older homes with yellowing switches & covers.

Ivory Devices

Ivory Devices Have Color Variation

Where: Ivory is an excellent choice when you're decorating a room with creamy hues or have beige walls. Warmer ivory switches won't stand out on a painted wall as much as stark white will.

Note that not all ivory finishes will be an exact match - each manufacturer has their own ivory finish, some color variation (even within the same brand) is quite normal and very common.
