Walking in and out a bedroom the tap switches are not easy to use or as quick. You can't whack the tap switch like on a decora rocker.
I would disagree. Every switch/dimmer in our house is a Lutron Maestro. Now ours are the full sized ones which may make a difference. The cool thing about them is that they are a toggle, so if they are on, just whacking it at the top, middle or bottom turns it off and vice versa.
If you are doing a full bedroom reno, take a look at the Radio RA 2 line. Gives you more control than from the handheld remote, plus gives you the base to automate all the lighting in your house.
