I've spent lots and lots of time trying to find a dual dimmer light switch. HELP

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I thought this would be real simple to find when I first got the idea of wanting one. I have spent so much time looking for it and unfortunately I have not been able to find it. I prefer 1 dimmer switch and one regular switch but they can be both dimmer switches. I don't care. I just want to find one as long as I can keep it under $20 that would be great.

The picture below is what I have now.

How about this?

I own some that look like regular light switches but are actually dimmers, I don't know what they're called though and I can't find them.

That's what I'm looking for but instead of just 1 switch I need a dual dimmer switch. I actually want one to be a regular light switch and one to be a dimmer. Look in the picture I posted it shows it's a dual light switch.

can you not just buy two of them and put them in the receptacle?

I believe there would be a sizing issue.
