The kitchen may serve as the center of the home, but following the latest design trends when remodeling or building a new space can leave it feeling a little sterile. Adding the family’s personality to the kitchen requires more than just hanging some pictures on the walls. Try these five ways to work in more personality while choosing a kitchen’s fixtures.
1. Unique Cabinet and Drawer Hardware
Cabinet pulls and drawer handles are ideal for getting creative and showing off a distinct personality because they’re eye-catching but a relatively small part of the kitchen. Playful or colorful cabinet hardware won’t overwhelm the rest of the kitchen décor or make too strong of a statement. For a truly unique look, try commissioning a custom design.
2. Striking Faucet Finishes
Don’t feel constrained to the standard faucet finishes that match the selected décor style. A contrasting or unexpected finish is a great way to add personality to the sink area in any kitchen. Unusual styles of taps or mounting methods also liven up the space. A wall-mounted faucet or pot filler shows off the family’s love of cooking and good old-fashioned functionality.
3. Artistic Kitchen Islands
Kitchen islands are the ideal place for showcasing elements of personal taste. From colorful resin or natural stone countertops to custom storage spaces for specialty appliances, islands concentrate personality all in a compact package. It’s not hard for a future home buyer to update this contained space either, making it valuable for the life of the home.
4. Colorful and Adjustable Lighting
Pendant lamps with hand painted or blown glass shades double as works of art along with bright lighting for tasks in the kitchen. Check out options for adjustment tracks and spot lighting to highlight personal hints like artwork and floral arrangements too.
5. Specialty Sinks
From the elegant exposed aprons of farmhouse sinks to the iconic look of wall-mounted basins, there are plenty of options for spicing up a basic kitchen. Homeowners who prefer to stick to traditional materials like fire clay and stainless steel can choose from less common shapes and double-sink arrangements for a hint of personality.
Don’t let a kitchen go without the personal touch when there are so many opportunities for livening it up. Find all the kitchen fixtures and accessories needed here at Kingston Brass.
