Need help selecting new kitchen cabinet hardware

This is the color of my new kitchen cabinets. All appliances and faucet are stainless steel. Can I use oil rubbed bronze hardware or pewter or would it be best to stay with brushed nickel? My kitchen is small.

Your kitchen would have a nice finished look with satin nickel. It goes with the appliances and sink faucet. You might try to use satin nickel drapery rods too.

I would generally stick with a brushed nickel, but have used pewter and mixed some the the other fixtures with a pewter finish since the client did not like stainless/nickel as much and is still in the silver family. It was a fairly traditional kitchen. What is the style of your kitchen going to be? What is it about the brushed nickel that you don't like?

Thx....kitchen is traditional. Like satin nickel; just thought maybe too much silver.

Sometimes introducing another material makes it feel even busier. I think in a small kitchen the brushed nickel is the way to go. Placing knobs on the uppers will keep the feel of too much silver to a minimum.

I have stainless steel appliances and a brushed stainless faucet, so I decided on brushed stainless cabinet hardware which I'm very happy with. I have knobs on upper and lower cabinet doors, pulls on lower drawers. My kitchen is also on the smaller side.
