Polished vs. Satin Nickel Hardware?

teachrJuly 16, 2013
Getting to the point in our Reno when we're thinking hardware...
Question: In a kitchen with all stainless appliances, must we go with satin nickel cabinetry hardware for a cohesive look?
I'm a big fan of Restoration Hardware and their polished nickel is so beautiful -do the knobs and pulls just have to conform to the stainless or is polished nickel okay to use on the cabinets? I've been combing the photos section - but it's just so hard to tell in the pictures, exactly what finish the hardware is!

It would look great to have polished nickel or chrome cabinet hardware with your SS appliances. Go for it!

I love shiny chrome and used that in our kitchen with stainless appliances. Chrome is timeless and much easier to clean

Hi teachr, either one would look nice, as long as you like it and you think the overall balance works. Go for it. :)

I have stainless appliances, chrome faucets and am trying to decide between a stainless finish- seems as though chrome would require more polishing because of fingerprints?!
