How to make your kitchen shine with minimal updates


 

Just like a great outfit can be turned into a red carpet look with the right jewelry, a beautiful kitchen can be turned into a dream-home worth of Better Homes and Garden with a few updates. 

No matter your skill level, an easy hardware update can transform your space from blasé to, "No way!"  All you need is a can of paint and a toolbox to take your kitchen from the 1980s to modern farmhouse chic in a day. 

Where do I start? 

The first step in choosing kitchen hardware is deciding on your color and style. Do you prefer an industrial or traditional kitchen? Do you want the classic stained-wood cabinetry, or the modern all-white kitchen? Once you have a direction for the room, grab those paint samples and a few different hardware pieces to mix and match in the space. 

Things to consider

There are a variety of considerations you should make when choosing your hardware, such as finish and type of handle. Do you want bronze? Gold? Copper? Do you want your hardware to be long bars or round handles? How large do you want them on to be on your cabinet? 

How do I know what's right for me? 

When you know what type of kitchen you'd like, there are a variety of apps like Pinterest or Homestyler Interior Design that can help you gain ideas. Most modern kitchens feature white cabinets and industrial pull bars in either gold or silver. More frequently, homeowners are choosing an industrial faucet to enhance the modern look. If you're looking to go the extra mile, you can even install a farmhouse sink made out of copper. 

If you're looking for a more traditional style, try a stained cabinet with cup pull hardware. Finish it with a traditional curved faucet. 

And if you're in need of a luxury faucet, contact us today. We'd be happy to help you find the right fit for your kitchen.
