Replacing Dimmer for kitchen lights


we just purchased a condo and our kitchen and Dining room lights are on dimmers, but the switch kind right now.The are side by side on the same switch. How difficult would it be to replace it with an updated dimmer similar to the one below, but obviously a dual switch...

Thanks

Side by side in the same box is what you meant right?

Of course you can replace them with any type of switch designed to go into that box.
I did not hunt for your dimmers on the web site. But have a good idea as to what they sell. Install what you like.
Don't forget CFL's and flourecents cannot be dimmed in the traditional manner.

Thats something the people pushing the CFL don't tell you. You can find some CFL that are dimmable now.
