Electrical box on floor


My aunt is doing a remodel and had some electrical boxes and phone wire boxes installed in the floor. She would like an oil rubbed bronze, recessed cover plate for them. Any idea where to get them? I've only seen plastic ones. Thanks

That's the first time I heard anyone use the term Binged. lol. I searched that, but the ones that I found are all either round or are closesd and must be unscrewed to gain access to the outlet.

That's to keep the dirt out of it. Just one of the down falls of a floor outlet.

It may depend on what type of box was used. They are not all universal.
