"Designer" or Under cabinet recepticle

We are getting granite counter tops in the kitchen and my wife is not exicted about having white recepticles (and switches). So, my question is are there recepticles that come in differant colors (ie. silver) or can you buy under cabinet recepticles. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Sure, receptacles come in gray. The orange big box carries them and the cover plates. Not sure what you mean by "under cabinet"

Some folks are using the under cabinet electrical outlet strips called plug molding. This eliminates the outlets in the backsplash area. http://www.wiremold.com/shared_content/pdf/ed1412.pdf

but just head up becarefull with the " undercabent" receptale the code stated it have be no higher than 18-20 inch above the countertop surface

if you need the code number let me know i will post it on the forum here

and check with your local inspector some may frown on this one for safety reason., So ,, check it out ahead of the time to avoid any misunderstanding with this and cost as well to move it twice.

Merci , Marc

Cabinets are typically 18" above counter.

Cooper's "Aspire" line receptacles, GFCIs, switches and faceplates are available in granite colors.
