What color hardware for this kitchen?
July 31, 2014 in Design Dilemma
Hi all -
We are doing a new build, and it's time to pick kitchen hardware...totally overwhelming! I was originally thinking oil rubbed bronze, but now I'm worried that it's too trendy and already on the way out. It's the finish that seems to make the most sense with the rest of the kitchen, but I'm wondering if brushed nickel would also work? Or is there another finish that would work that I'm not thinking of?

Pics of cabs and granite are attached. Island will be the dark walnut color (on the right of the image), perimeter cabs are white. Stainless appliances. Floors will be Minwax dark walnut stain.

Any advice would be much appreciated! :) Thanks in advance!

Brush stainless steel hardware would provide a more unique and sophisticated look.

Stainless steel would tie in with your appliances. What finish are you going with for faucets, decorative lights, etc.? Try to tie it all together if you can. Polished chrome can be nice as well as long as you don't mind cleaning, but then you might want to think about cabinet fronts on the appliances.

brushed stainless or polished chrome. Painted cabinets . Lots of grey in that granite. Go white and stick with brushed or polished chrome.

Both the stainless and chrome will give you a more modern look. If that's what you want then go with it if not for a more traditional look go black.
