color of light switch covers?

I am totally confused now. Too many people helping me out (family).
We have new reddy brown laminate floors upstairs and the walls are painted bradstreet beige (med.beige) my door frames and baseboards are white. What colour would be best for my electrical outlets (switches & plugs)? White or beige?
Thanks in advance

if your only choices are beige or white, then definitely white. beige will look dirty & old next to your white door frames & baseboards.

but if you're not crazy about bright white covers, then go with something else - brass or wood or something that would go with your room & the accessories you have around.

keep these the color of your baseboards and moldings. plain white. if you BB and moldings were a creme color, then i'd say creme. you want some relationship between your accented areas, if you dont, it could look busy and confusing. plus since you have so much warm based colors everywhere else, a cool white could set off the other tones well.
