How Fixtures and Hardware Can Change Your Kitchen

You may think that the fixtures and hardware are the least important part of your kitchen remodel. You’re too busy focusing on appliances, cabinets, countertops, and a million other things. But these little pieces can make or break your new kitchen. Cabinet Discounters, provider of Columbia kitchen cabinets and remodels, discusses why hardware is so important.columbia kitchen cabinets

Hardware Finalizes the Style

You may have the perfect kitchen cabinets for your remodel. But the hardware for them is what really brings it all together — or completely ruins the look you’re going for. The shape and finish of them can signify the style you’re going for. If you’re looking to have a beautiful farmhouse kitchen but choose extremely modern fixtures, it can throw everything off.

You want to make sure they fit well in the kitchen. If you have a lot of straight lines highlighted in the kitchen, you probably want straight handles as well. Finishes are important, too. You want them to fit with the lighting fixtures, appliances, and other features in your kitchen. If you have stainless steel everywhere, you may want to get stainless steel finishes for your hardware as well.

Plumbing Fixtures Need Style Too

Hardware isn’t the only place that you want to be stylish. What you choose for your plumbing elements and kitchen faucet is important too. Like the hardware, you want the finish to match the other things that are going on in the kitchen. While it doesn’t have to be exact, it’s important that it doesn’t clash with the rest of the things that are in your kitchen.

But They Also Need to Function Well

With hardware, the function is pretty simple. You just need to be able to open up cabinet doors easily. Faucets can have a variety of features that you may want to integrate into your kitchen. Whether you want a simple or high-tech faucet will be something that you’ll have to decide on.

For starters, Moen faucets notably have a Spot Resist finish. This helps with both water spots and fingerprints. This is a good option if you have a lot of little kids running around, coming in from playing, and doing arts and crafts, and using the sink after. Moen is also noted for a finish that’s guaranteed for life.

American Standard and Kohler both have a very wide range of styles for their products to help fit even the most unique kitchen design. American Standard has a limited lifetime warranty available for its products as well. Kohler focuses on features that are simple and easy to use. All of their finishes also meet twice the durability standard.

Lastly, we offer Delta faucets. If you’ve seen any of their commercials, you know that they have stylish hardware. They want to give you both maximum style and flexibility with their products. Many of the features on Delta faucets are designed with the user in mind, trying to anticipate their needs.
