One of the most exciting, but challenging aspects of a kitchen remodel is deciding on the finishing touches. There are seemingly endless combinations of colors, materials, and price points to choose from, and it’s all a matter of preference. However, there are a few key points to keep in mind regardless of the style you’re going for.
1 – Start With The Countertops.
This is the largest surface area in your kitchen other than cabinets, so start here. Your countertops are a focal point and it can really help to base all of your other finishing detail decisions off of them.
Be mindful of both the color and texture of your countertops and whether you want them to be cohesive or contrast your kitchen island. Stick with smooth, light, durable materials that can withstand regular wear and are easy to clean—like granite or a composite material. Natural wood, large tile, stone, or stainless steel options can also work well as long as they’re treated with a durable protective finish.
2 – Focus On Your Kitchen Cabinet Color.
Your kitchen cabinets are another good starting point—especially since they are often noticed first. Keep your cabinets as neutral and clean as possible. It’s a good idea to try and have all your cabinets the same color. Or, if you want to add a little variation, have one color on your upper cabinets and another on the lowers and/or kitchen island.
Be mindful of the size of your kitchen space as well. Dark cabinets can make an already small kitchen feel tiny, while light cabinets give the illusion of more space.
Also, remember that changing your cabinet color is much more affordable with cabinet refinishing or refacing your existing cabinets rather than replacing them with entirely new ones.
3 – Tie It All Together With Your Remaining Finishes.
With your countertops and cabinet color decided, you’re in a good place to select the rest of your final touches. Add contrast! We love pairing lighter backsplashes or countertops with darker cabinets and vice versa. Also consider lighting, fixtures, hardware, and appliances that blend well and reflect your personal style.
Your countertops and cabinets will make the biggest impact in your kitchen. The rest of your finishing touches help enhance them and complete the design.
