I haven't read all the comments yet. Has anyone mentioned that you can buy paintable switch plates? We have done this. Switch plates painted the same color as the wall, or in a close color to tile, will fade into the background. Some tile companies sell switch plates to match, but the selections are limited.

I personally show the pop up outlet all the time. It can help meet code and when there are lots of windows or very little wall space. I love open areas and these really fit the bill. However, most of my clients don't like them. I think they are fantastic. Actually I thought the the whole article was fantastic. Great tips that convert kitchen job job into a very polished end product. I have to say the LEDs make the biggest difference. We do a ton with the LEDs. The function and aethetic differences are HUGE!!! Don't be fooled by Cheap LEDs though. The extrusions make for easy cleaning and a difused look against the shinier counters. No one wants to see the dots. The extrusions are where a lot of the cost is. ... that and the labor. Don't skimp here. This is money well spent.
