How to choose light switch styles (for 2 and 3 gangs)
Do you consider the light switch plate cover when deciding the style switch you are going to use? This may seem like dumb question.
I have a 3-gang box with two regular switches. the third is a dimmer so would it be obvious to choose the dimmer with the small slider vs. the dimmer with the large slider? this way i can simply use a standard 3 switch plate cover which i can easily find.
I prefer the dimmers with the larger sliders but finding a plate cover with two small rectangles and one large is not easy... or is it?
Also, what about putting a rotary dimmer next to a regular switch? I suppose I could buy a solid cover and custom make my own openings.
Basically, is there a rule of thumb when purchasing a switch style when you have multiple switches in a box?
