How Does Hardware Affect My CT Kitchen Remodel?

By Blue Corona Dev Aug 26, 2015

The hardware of in your kitchen has the ability to tie together your entire CT kitchen remodel. The key to a kitchen remodel is to decide on the color, style, and material that your hardware is made of so that you can base the rest of your kitchen remodel around it.


There are many different types of hardware that feature many different colors within.The two standard colors are steel and gold, which compliment many different cabinets and appliances. But many different styles of hardware offer colored tiles that can accent the colors in your kitchens curtains, tablecloth, and d’cor. If you decide to go not so traditional brass, bronze, nickel, and glass hardware can give a modern look to your kitchen remodel without significantly raising costs. Also if you choose to use a nontraditional style you can give your house an earthier natural look. But if you decide to go with the traditional a steel and gold look, you can enhance the look of your kitchen and give it a sleek traditional look.

Style and Material

By picking a certain style of hardware you can help decide what the rest of your kitchen will look like. If you were thinking about a modern look it would help to accent your kitchen remodel with brushed stainless steel or a polished nickel. A set of gold hardware, which isn’t actually made of gold, will cost a bit more but will really accent your cabinetry and countertops. When you consider your hardware also think of if you want it to be polished of satin. With polished hardware you can give your kitchen a great accent with its shine and beauty. With satin hardware you have the benefit of a modern look that is easy to care for and resists fingerprints. The oils and dirt on your fingers rub off on hardware making them look dirty and unkempt. Keep maintenance of your hardware in mind when you decide what you want.


Accenting your kitchen starts with the hardware and based on the look that you are going for you can make or break your CT kitchen. When you are doing a full remodel, appliances and all, focus on if you want stainless steel, colored, or custom paneled appliances. This can help direct the look of your kitchen and hardware.

Although frequently overlooked, the hardware in your new kitchen remodel is important. Search for hardware that is going to tie together your whole kitchen.
