stainless steel wallplates

...and what color outlets/switches, etc. should I use?


We finished our kitchen remod a year ago, but I didn't put enough thought into the switches and wallplates and the white on white really sticks out like a sore thumb. Almond isn't a choice since I have a lot of white trim. I have decided on the satin chrome wallplates but I'm not entirely sure which outlets I want. I want them to look nice, but not stand out so I'm thinking grey, but I'm not entirely sure yet.


Kitchen is pretty traditional style with med brown shaker cabinets, beige tile floor, beige/grey tile with grey grout, stainless appliances and blue sapphire (black with blue & taupe chunks) granite countertops, walls are a blue-grey (Ben Moore 1621).


If you have done stainless wallplates, what color outlets did you go with. Thanks.

You have to go to Canada for grey.  In the States you'll have to settle for gray.
