Special Switch

This could probably be included with the fan post, but I think it's cool enough to deserve its own post.
The bedroom fan came with a remote  that actually has some cool features.  Most notably, a timer function, which allows us to go to bed with the fan on and have it turn off automatically after 2, 4, or 8 hours.
The question is, where should we keep the remote?  It comes with a little holster which can be mounted on the wall, but I thought it would look odd mounted in a random place on the wall, and the screws provided looked insufficient, so I had to come up with something else.

Here's the solution I came up with:
Work of a super genius.  Patent pending.
I got a double switch plate and mounted the remote holster to one side then screwed it onto the single switch, creating a spiffy little command center.  I think it creates more continuity than just mounting the remote on the wall next to the switch.  It is a much more elegant solution, and I don't have to put any holes in the wall.
