In 2022, residential design will focus on creating cohesion throughout the kitchen. The best way to achieve a this is to pair corresponding fixtures and finishes throughout your space. By incorporating metals of one chromatic scheme in the kitchen, you’ll establish a greater sense of stability and structure in a room where an abundance of activity occurs each day.
With so many details to consider, it can often become difficult to begin the accessory selection process. We recommend it’s best to start with the defining features of a kitchen’s design: the appliances and cabinet hardware.
Whether your interior style leans more towards keeping up with current trends or you find yourself recreating vintage designs, we’re offering insight on curating the perfect finish scheme.
Read on as we explore the leading finish options from top appliance brands and our complementing hardware to complete the look.
Age of Bronze
Shades of gold are having a moment in kitchens this year. Pops of brass make a bold statement and bring attention to areas that can often be overlooked. Café Appliances summons serious elegance to the kitchen by adding Brushed Bronze accessories to their expansive selection of ranges, refrigerators, dishwashers and more.
When placed in line with cabinetry adorned with our Honey Bronze or Brushed Bronze knobs and pulls, the synthesis of golden hues emits an illuminating brilliance that will cast a soft glow across the entire kitchen.
The New Neutral
Subtle variations of silver embellishments welcome a sense of simplicity and serenity to kitchens. Bridging the gap between modern metallics and classic polishes is a finish that quite literally falls in the gray area. Our Ash Gray and Patina finishes lend an air of sophistication to interiors while remaining in the neutral zone.
Sub Zero Wolf’s answer to a unified style is their delectable Stainless Steel, the standard base choice across all range models.
