It's nice to see all of the different hardware finishes that have been incorporated into the different styles of kitchens. And most of these ideas easily lend themselves to bathrooms.

Love this article. We are getting rid of mid 80’s oak cabinets and panels on half the wall in the kitchen and full panels in the laundry room. I want something fresh, bright, and airy, but also don’t want it to look too sterile and boring. These are all great ideas and I loved that you pointed out the differences between the cool and warm whites. I will remember to stay in the same color family when we start choosing the finishes.
