Bailing on the under-upper plugs (too many subs to coordinate, and the change orders would cause severe nausea ...), so we need to choose plugs for the backsplash. The dream would be these Bocci plugs, the Bocci 22:

Stunningly gorgeous, but also stunningly expensive. The mounting plate costs $50 a piece, the plug itself costs $75 a piece, and you need an installation tool (one time charge!) that costs $150. It also looks expensive as hell to install (I can already see the crazed twitchy looks from the builder and subs).

Then there's this, the 360 electrical:

The plugs rotate to fit your needs, and they are pretty affordable: $5 a set!

Beaker's Bro turned us onto Legrand Adorne:

which actually have pretty darn cool switches and other stuff as well. Really diggin' the cubist emphasis here.

Even better is the pop-out outlet:

You press the square and the plug pops out of the wall: nifty!

We are currently spec'd for Leviton Decora:

which is cool, clean, modern, and affordable. Nonetheless, we foresee switching out some strategically placed plugs about the house with the Legrand Adornes.
