I Need You To Help Me Decide!

Hubby and I started grouting the backsplash this weekend and found some outlet covers that I liked...that is until our 20 yr old daughter came home and when I asked how she liked the outlet covers...she said, "She hated them". Wow, hate is such a strong word! Tell me how you really feel Aubrie! LOL
So I told hubby to pick up the lighter outlet cover when he went to Lowes so that I can compare them.

Now, I like both of them, so I need your help choosing which color looks better.

UPDATE 6/9/09: Thank you all for your help! The lighter switch cover #2 was the overwhelming WINNER!!

Thanks for your opinions!

I liked the first one until I saw the second one. Definitely go with the lighter one.

I like the lighter one better. I think it blends in more. Have you seen the ones that are made of the same stone as your backsplash? My parents just did theirs with the same tiles (travertine or something similar?) and found the matching covers. I know they cost a little more, but they fit perfectly and if you don't have a lot to do I think it's worth it. I'll ask where they found them.

definitely #2 it blends in better and doesn't stick out like a sore thumb:)

I love your tile work...so pretty!

Sarah said...

Definitely the second one! You don't want people's eyes to be drawn to your outlets...you want them to see your beautiful backsplash and countertops. Great job, by the way! It looks beautiful!

this is a toughy! If I HAD to pick, I would go with the second one. But really it is a tie. Good luck.

The lighter one blends right in. That's my vote.

I like the second one the best! good luck!

Debbie said...

If the colors are true in your pics, I like the lighter one better. It sorta disappears instead of stand out. Debbie

Darlene, my two bits? The light one. It just disappears, which I think is nice because it does not call attention to itself.

Blessings,

The kitchen is really looking good! I prefer the lighter one because it's less obvious.

PS: LOVE the springy green color in your daughters room....very pretty. :)

Cindy said...

I prefer the lighter color one. I don't remember, which one did your daughter reject? Or did you say? Good luck!

FOR THE SAKE OF TIME said...

I too, prefer the lighter one. It looks wonderful.

Thanks for sharing.
