Finding the Right Appliances to go With Your Kitchen
When it comes to designing a beautiful home, it’s important that the aesthetics of all the components feel cohesive, and feel perfect for you. Choosing materials or features can seem like a big decision – after all, you’re making a big investment in improving your property. It’s important to make your decision based on what is most important to you – some variables to consider may include contemporary trends, something more traditional, functionality, and personal taste. There may be a lot to consider, but with the tips in this article and some good brainstorming – you’re sure to be thrilled once you’ve found your winning combination.
The easiest choice, by far, is to pick a single-color theme and stick with it. Stainless steel is a common go-to choose, and for excellent reason. It’s sleek, and can be designed to fit in with the most modern or most traditional kitchens. If you’re feeling bolder, pure black or pure white can also make for visually interesting selections. If your cabinet and counters are already dark, consider going with lighter appliances to brighten the room. If you have a large space to work with, black appliances can make a big impact as long as they don’t visually shrink your space. No matter which you choose, you’ll be sure your kitchen makes a big statement.
Driven by details
A subtle way to give yourself flexibility is to align the details of your space. You can earn yourself a broader selection of cabinet, counter, and appliance colors if you match the materials of the handles or trims to pull the space together. Decide if you’d like your complementing details to be cohesive or contrasting, and outfit different spaces of your kitchen with the same material – black matte or oil-rubbed bronze are great selections on the darker side, or stainless silver can brighten things up – decide which fits your space best, and bring everything together!
Mixing and matching
This may seem like an odd suggestion, but it can open so many doors. Instead of picking a suite of identical appliances, be a little bolder with your tastes. It can seem like a daunting task to make sure nothing clashes, but if you pull off the right combination of mismatched appliances it’s harder for your decor or cabinets or counters to ever look out of place. Consider a well-decorated room with a couch, loveseat, and armchair that are all from different sets – it’s not as easy as picking a pre-selected arrangement, but it gives you a much wider latitude when it comes to adding in the details. Use accessories of a similar color palette to pull everything together, and use tricks like finding a counter-depth refrigerator and slide-in range to make each piece feel like it was built to be there.
There are many ways to pick the right appliances to fit with the overall feel of your existing kitchen features. Fortunately, there are so many resources to find inspiration to create the kitchen of your dreams!
