When it comes to remodeling your kitchen, there’s more to appearance than just applying a theme or using certain colors. Kitchen finishes influence not only the aesthetics of your space but also its functionality and utility.
Allstate Home Improvement Services, your trusted kitchen remodeler, discusses creative and practical finishes for your new kitchen.
Chrome Kitchen Additions
Brushed metal is making a comeback in kitchen design, chrome being the most prominent. Chrome hardware, such as stoves, pair great with stainless steel appliances and marble countertops. They also look terrific as a standalone feature and can easily become an unexpected focal point. In terms of functionality, chrome additions are low-maintenance fixtures as they resist smudges and stains better than other materials.
For smaller kitchens, an easy way to make it look more spacious is by installing taller replacement windows. While the effect is purely visual, it does the trick, making the area feel less stuffy and busy. Taller and wider windows also add some much-needed natural lighting to your kitchen, increasing visual space further while also adding some much-needed warmth to an otherwise industrial part of your home.
Natural stone countertops like marble have a softer texture but have that quiet sophistication that’s not easy to replicate. They are more durable and impervious to heat, and unlike other countertop materials, are also more tolerant to acids that can permanently etch surfaces.
Granite is more affordable than marble, which makes it the ideal countertop material if cost is one of your main concerns. Like marble, it also comes in a range of patterns for both classic and contemporary kitchen spaces.
