Have you installed stainless steel appliances in your kitchen? From the dishwasher and oven to the refrigerator, there is no question that stainless steel offers an extremely sophisticated look. When you pair these elegant appliances with the right cabinets, you can create a kitchen that is not only appealing, to look at, but also fun to work in.
If you are ready to get a new look for your cabinets, or plan on having new ones installed, you need to carefully consider what will and will not go well with your shiny appliances. What is the right choice?
According to a number of interior design professionals, a great option for pairing with stainless steel appliances is dark chocolate cabinets. Choosing dark stained cabinets, with your appliances and a lighter countertop will help set the stage for the look and feel of your entire kitchen.
You can add a bit of luxury and fresh air to your kitchen by choosing dark stained cabinets. Even if you have an island counter, an open kitchen with this color scheme will feel luxurious. The appearance of the dark color looks more upscale and high-end, than if you were to utilize white, or a lighter natural wood.
Additionally, the dark color of your cabinets will provide a sleeker look to your kitchen. Make sure to install quality overhead lighting as well, as this will help create a cozy feel, and the light will bounce off of the stainless steel and the dark colors of your cabinets. With this combination of colors, you will quickly discover how quickly your kitchen can look, and you may even increase the resale value of your home, thanks to the perceived luxury this combination will provide.
If your goal is to create a modern, classy look in your kitchen, then the dark colored cabinets are going to help you do this. While there are some homeowners who have selected a lighter stain, such as maple or even white, dark stains are much more stylish.
Not only will dark colors look great with your stainless steel appliances, but it will also make maintenance much simpler. You won’t have to spend as much time cleaning or trying to cover up stains, because the dark color will keep imperfections and other issues hidden.
If you are considering dark cabinets for your kitchen, speak with your custom cabinet maker. They can likely help you find the ideal color for your needs and one that really complements your décor.
