Installing aftermarket light switches

I wired up two new switches in my car to operate some halos and such on my headlights, but im not sure where i should mount the actual switches inside the cab. I would really like to have a multi switch pannel or something, but where have yall installed switches in your cab?

What about inside the console compartment? There's a little rectangular panel that can pop off for adjusting the parking brake cable tension; you could mount the switches there, though they would be a little annoying to get to.

Maybe fabricate a small panel that attaches to the lower part of the dash? Could make it out of aluminum and paint it up to make it look nice and mount below where the headlight switch is.

Not sure where you'd put them, but how about these sweet switches from Oracle? They mount pretty flush and have a few symbols as well.

The 3 places I would consider are
1. Inside center counsel
2. Under the dash some where you could reach easier but still not visible so its not an eye sore.
3. Fabricate some kind of bracket to block off one (or both) of the cup holders and then keep the lid shut.

Overall I think its tacky to have random switches sticking out of the dash. I know on the F bodies guys used to make switch panels to put in the ash try or use OEM convertible switch panels and wire the switch to whatever they were looking to power.
