The levitons match this for turning on lights, but not for turning off. Of course, something can be said for only having to hit a switch in the same way each time to turn it on or off....same can be said for the reverse to. Comes down to personal preference.
WAF is a very important, if not the most important, consideration.

I'm curious. With a normal Decora switch, you hit the top of the paddle to turn on and the bottom to turn off the load. What standard switches does your wife mean?
