Any advice for cabinet hardware options? BM white dove cabinets with cambria Wellington countertops. Island is a chocolate stain with cambria lincolnshire countertops. We have a hand scraped maple floor, an almond kohler sink and brilliant stainless sink. All stainless appliances. Any advice??

I would do polished nickel on the island and antique bronze on the wall cabinets. Also, do knobs for doors and pulls for drawers. Good luck!!

There are many different finishes that could work. Personally, I like the consistency of a finish like brushed nickel or chrome with your stainless appliances and sink. And they will look good on both the light and dark cabinetry.

What a dream kitchen!!! You have done a beautiful job. On the white I would suggest picking up on the chocolate color on the hood and backsplash trim, with darker color knobs. The knobs would help bring the attention to your focal piece. As for the island I like Feeny and RD's idea of the brushed nickel to go with the appliances. I also like your light fixtures.

Misprint: faucet is kohler's brilliant stainless finish and Sink is kohler's almond color.

Great kitchen! I would go with dark oil rubbed bronze for hardware. Like the range hood. Definitely not nickel in my opinion.

You do have a great kitchen! I like the cohesive look of using the same finish on all of the cabinets and drawers, and using a combination of pulls and knobs. A satin nickel or stainless steel finish would match your appliances and faucets, and they would provide some contrast with your dark cabinets in the island.

Years ago I switched out kitchen knobs that I found at a reasonable price. 2 days later, I removed the sample I'd installed b/c it's angular design feature was too uncomfortable. Sample one or two designs for fashion and function. Are you considering complimenting your light fixtures - not matchy-matchy but coordinated? Have fun.

Hello! We'd choose something that matches your appliances and faucet. It might be nice to bring a little of that chrome/nickle color onto the cabinets.

Knobs and pulls have to function well. Consider comfort in the hand, especially important if you have small or large ones, or arthritis, etc... I once had square knobs and constantly had to straighten them. That was a pain and eventually they became permanently loose . My personal preference it to keep the finish uniform.

I love the look of the pendants and agree the edison bulbs really add to the overall look

We are in the process of refinishing our cabinets (waiting for the doors to be finished) and they are similiar to yours in color. I also like the look of keeping the pulls/knobs all the same metal. For our cabinets, we have white (went with Winter Snow instead of White Dove) on the perimeter uppers & lowers and black stain on the island. For the hardware, we are going with brushed nickel knobs for the cabinets and pulls for the drawers. The shape of the pulls mimic the refrigerator door which I believe will keep things cohesive and pull the room together.

flair lighting, I received an email about your response about the lighting but only could see part of it and I don't see it listed above. Can you please restate it. Thanks!

We have similar finishes. We used SS pulls and latches for the white periphery cabinets and oil-rubbed bronze for the stained island. Same hardware just different finishes. Goodluck!

lighting looks great. I was surprised to see how bright the Edison bulbs appeared. if anything i might, get a dimmer, or lower the wattage.
