C4 faceplates for electrical outlets?


Recommended Posts

I recognize this is a "design" and personal preference question, but I'm about to order new keycaps and faceplates (midnight black).  As a general rule, should I also swap out the faceplates that are at counter level in the kitchen for electrical outlets (not C4 switches) and also should I swap out the faceplates (and actual outlets white>black) for floorboard outlets?

Yes. I just did that in a Kitchen that has all Control4 lighting.

JSTRONG you did floorboard outlets as well? And swapped the outlet colors themselves from white>black?

 

im pretty sure I’ll do the counter electrical outlets and faceplates, I’m really just unsure of whether to mess with the floor outlets all throughout the home.

When we moved to midnight black switches we changed outlets and all cover plates to match.  

Did  you replace floorboard outlets as well to match?  For what it's worth I have painted white floorboard trim.  Now I know I'll swap all outlets at eye/counter level (in the kitchen and bathrooms), but still unsure of whether or not to keep floor board outlets white or swap them to black as well.

I went black for these and I have white marble skirtings. Looks great (IMHO)

I've used black control4 switches forever, and generic stainless steel cover plates. Mine aren't screwless, and I'd go for the C4 one if I had all gen3 devices (mine's a mix of a few original left, gen3 and some essential), but this way it all ties in quite well (midnight black for gen3 is near identical to old gen black).

All higher up plugs are black as well, floor height depends on the room - black where it fits, but some are white with white plates as they disappear against the wall (and some are behind furniture that I've been too lazy to move ;) )
