Momentary-on light switch for a more aesthetic garage door switch

I would like to replace my electric garage door switch with one that is more aesthetic. Currently, I have a switch on the wall that looks like a door bell switch. I would like to change that out with switch resembling a regular light switch. Does anyone know where I can get a momentary on light switch or other switch that fits a standard switch plate? Thanks in advance for any information.

All of the major manufactures of electrical devices make commercial grade switches in both traditional toggle style and Decor style that re momentary contact. Visit your local electrical supply house to ask for such, call around for prices with some model numbers in hand. It may need to be ordered, and some supply houses have an addtional freight charge for ordered items not in stock.

Leviton model numbers:
