Coordinate Your Kitchen Faucet & Cabinets
During the past several years the types of Kitchen faucet styles available have increased dramatically. As you are planning your cabinet refacing plan, you may want to coordinate the look of your new cabinet style with your kitchen faucet.
Various Kitchen Faucet Styles
Kitchen faucets come in virtually every design style from curved faucet stems exhibiting an old-fashioned flair to smooth faucet stems which extend straight out. To complement a traditional style cabinet refacing project including crown molding and raised panel doors, the following faucet styles are excellent choices:
- A high-arched two handle faucet
- A curved tem faucet with a single handle
- An antique finish, such as antique brass
- Detailed faucet handles that blend with the cabinetry design
To complement a contemporary style cabinet refacing project with flat panel doors and minimal details, you may want to consider the following faucet styles:
- Plain metal faucet styles
- Unique, geometric-shaped faucet stems such as ovals cylinders, or blocks
Shiny brass faucets are a thing or the past. Today, popular faucet finishes are smooth and sophisticated dressed in brown or gray metals. The most popular faucet finishes are:
- Brushed chrome.
- Satin nickel.
- Aged brass with a weathered look.
- Brushed stainless steel
- Oil-rubbed bronze
Complement Cabinet Hardware with Your Faucet Finish
Consider your cabinet hardware when selecting a kitchen faucet finish. For instance the same cool-brushed nickel can be used for both your faucet finish and your hardware. If you are considering refacing your cabinets in white, oil-rubbed bronze hardware and a matching faucet finish can give your kitchen a crisp, clean look.
Look not only for a kitchen faucet coordinates with your cabinet refacing, find one that also makes your space unique. A subtle contrast in finishes can actually make a big difference in your kitchen design style.
