Cabinets come in a variety of finishes textures colors and design styles. Traditional lines with intricate detailing may be your decorative style or you may prefer modern styled cabinets with less visual detail. Modern styled cabinets shouldn’t be ignored because of their visual simplicity; on the contrary modern styled cabinets can help transform your space. Modern cabinets tend to blend seamlessly into one another with only reveal lines for visual separation. If you’re in the market for cabinetry see how modern styled cabinets may be what your home is looking for.
Ceramic Tile Given the numerous shapes sizes and colors available ceramic tile is probably the most versatile option (it’s also proven to be timeless). There’s plenty of room to play with patterns while still maintaining clean lines: stack tiles in columns stagger them or lay them at an angle. Most tile requires minimal maintenance just be sure to seal the grout so it doesn’t get stained or absorb water.
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.
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.
Metal Kitchen Countertop Ideas While stainless steel is a good and classic metal option two other metals are seeing a surge in kitchen countertop popularity.
The kitchen countertop is the perfect place to add the ultimate design touch to your kitchen. Regardless of which kitchen countertop ideas you’re attracted to select materials that are durable and built to withstand the wear and tear associated with cooking and prep.
