Stainless Steel Most people are after matching stainless steel appliances in their kitchen. Why? Because they look sharp and are central to a modern updated design. Using stainless steel as the backsplash–either with tiles or a solid sheet–is a continuation of that same feel and creates a sleek uniform look. The material is easy to wipe clean doesn’t require grout and will last forever.
Kitchen cabinets are a high impact design element because they’re outward facing (unlike flat countertops) and take up a lot of real estate in the room. According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association cabinets make up one-third to one-half of kitchen remodel budgets. NKBA also reported that among painted cabinets white is the most popular option. Add a personal touch by choosing cabinet pulls and other hardware that you like. They are easily replaceable and will pop against crisp white cabinetry.
Natural stone backsplashes have a distinctly different texture than tiles and offer a contrast to smooth counters and cabinets. Stone is porous however which makes it harder to clean and more prone to chipping. An alternative to using smaller stacked stones is to continue the same granite or marble used for the countertops all the way up the wall.
The door style makes the cabinet: When choosing cabinetry the door style is what you’re really choosing for your decoration. To find cabinet doors bring home samples or pictures from your local cabinetry dealer. Choose minimal lines for modern kitchens exposed simple lines for Craftsman style and intricate detailed doors for a traditional look. Many cabinetry companies will have a sales person that can bring samples to your home to compare in your kitchen. This is a great idea if you are wavering on a style!
