Don’t underestimate the impact of seemingly minor details on your new kitchen’s look. Remember: when it comes to exterior design, consistency is key.
What are the details you shouldn’t overlook when planning a kitchen remodel? Krier’s Construction, your trusted kitchen remodeling and landscaping company, gives an overview and shares some design tips below:
- Electrical Outlets
White is the standard color for electrical outlets. However, against a background with a color other than white, white electrical outlets draw too much attention away from your kitchen backsplash. An easy fix to this problem would be to coordinate the colors of your outlets and wall plates with the color of your backsplash tiles.
- Grout Color
When choosing kitchen tiles, you shouldn’t treat the color of your grout as an afterthought. The right grout color can help create texture or contrast that highlights the tiles’ design.
Important note: you need to take into account the practical considerations of your kitchen’s grout color. For instance, white grout pairs well with traditional designs. However, since they stain easily, this color needs to be cleaned frequently.
Keep in mind coordinating colors can be tricky. That’s why if you’re having trouble finalizing your kitchen’s color scheme, don’t hesitate to consult your local general contractor.
- Hardware Style
Cabinet pulls, brackets and handles should complement your kitchen’s design. Here’s a tip: to quickly narrow down your options, find out which hardware styles and materials have been traditionally used in your kitchen’s design style. For instance, wooden knobs are usually paired with traditional white cabinets in rustic kitchens while sleek, black cabinet pulls and brackets are installed on light-colored cabinets in minimalist kitchens.
