Cabinet hardware is the perfect accent to a beautiful kitchen. The right hardware can be the finishing touch in a hardworking space. After choosing the kitchen cabinets and countertops, picking cabinet handles or knobs is an important decision that is left until the very end of the process, but can make big impact. They will give the whole kitchen design a final push. Many choices are available to give the desired look, from sleek, modern options in current finishes like copper and stainless, to the more traditional. Think carefully about the other elements in your kitchen, such as whether your appliances and sink will be stainless or not. Your color or finish might already be dictated by appliance, sink, or faucet, and while it is not essential to match, they should at least contrast well and work together towards an effective design.


Lighting is often the last thing considered in a kitchen design and the first thing cut from a budget. A well function and beautiful kitchen must be properly lit. That involves more than just specifying stylish light fixtures. A good plan blends lighting into the architectural and decorative details of the room. A mix and match with pendant light and ceiling recessed light will create the perfect atmosphere for your kitchen activities. There’s no such thing as a catch-all light fixture that does it all: illuminates under cabinets, provides light over the island and gives cabinets a glow. Some fixtures will multi-task their lighting duties, use the 4 layers of light, task, accent, decorative, ambient, to choose the right light for your kitchen.
