Black Is The New Neutral
A big part of remodeling your kitchen is how you’re going to accessorize. When you add metallic accents to your kitchen it makes a fresh statement. And it’s a fun way to put your style on display without breaking the bank.
Faucets in gold finishes will continue to be popular in 2023 or you can try a bronze faucet to bring warmth to your space. Rose gold is a metal finish that welcomes shimmer to a neutral kitchen. This finish looks great with a stainless steel farmhouse sink.
The big news is that black is the new neutral and can be used anywhere in your home. This could begin with your countertops. Our designers love Black Forest granite as a statement piece. A black faucet mixed with metal instantly modernizes your kitchen without too much commitment and can be paired with shaker style cabinets in white, blue or gray.
Where stainless steel is still the most desirable finish for kitchen appliances, a matte black finish is, once again, gaining momentum. Or you can try adding a pop of color like red or blue for your appliances to see if you like this trend.
Cabinet hardware can be anything from gold or brass, to champagne or rose gold. These accents give your kitchen a touch of luxury. Mixing knobs and pulls on kitchen cabinets will help you use them more easily. Imagining how you use them on a daily basis is a good guide. Slim and minimalistic pulls are top sellers for a good reason, they look gorgeous on most cabinets and come in numerous finishes. Matching cabinet hardware to your faucet will create a more cohesive look. We have a large display of hardware in our showrooms for you to choose from.
Good lighting is important in a kitchen simply because it’s a multi-functional, busy place. Pendants are on the cutting edge of modern style and shines light exactly where you need it. This type of lighting comes in a variety of options. Metal and glass globe pendants are on trend because they give an industrial vibe when hung over your kitchen island. Raven quartz tops perfect this look.
