Good Questions: Coolest On/Off Light Switch Design?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,

I’m trying to figure out what kind of light switches to use. I’m looking for something white, minimal. I’m imagining a switch that blends in to the wall, unnoticed, until you reach for it and notice how cool it is. Any suggestions?

Thanks, Lara

Dear Lara,

Personally we like the tilting design that allows you to push at the top or bottom when turning on or off your lights. It’s easy to use, it’s easy to clean, and it adds no visual clutter to the wall.

In our apartment we bought white Lutron switches and got them with little dimmer tabs on the side. These rock, and they are relatively inexpensive. We found them at a local electrical shop. We couldn’t see the reason why you’d want to spend a lot of $$ on switches when these were very nice and low profile.

Anyone else?
