The materials used in contemporary kitchen cabinetry range from stainless steel to glass. When wood is used, it is usually lightly grained like birch, ash, or maple, as they usually look well in simple designs. There are certain designers, developing lines of kitchen cabinetry that feature renewable materials, such as bamboo. This is not only environmentally friendly, but also has quite a pleasing aesthetic result. If you would rather avoid wood, then you can go in for metal kitchen cabinets. While stainless steel, with its mirror-like finish, continues to be a popular choice, metal kitchen cabinets that are made of copper, give a rather antique look to the kitchen. Not only are they aesthetically appealing, but are also resistant to corrosion and staining. Using thermofoil and melamine as your chosen material allows you to make a dramatic statement with a wide range of color options.
Changing the Veneer: Veneer also decides the way your cabinets will look and damaged veneer which has lost the polish and shine looks old and boring even after cleaning if for hours. And hence, replacing old veneer with new one can help you give a new touch to the kitchen cabinets, there are various designs and colors available in the veneers that you can experiment with. For example, instead of single color, you can use two to three colors of veneers to get the desired effect to the kitchen cabinets. But again, remember to choose the veneers that will match your kitchen well and not look out of the place.
Kitchen backsplash provides good visual effects on walls which are of a light shade. You can also have a small backsplash behind the kitchen sink. It can be a simple tiled pattern or a little mosaic. Take a look at the four pictures above to get a better idea on how to match the flooring and backsplash with white kitchen cabinets.
To achieve this look, you can simply have painted ones, which will allow you to give them a high-gloss finish that speaks contemporary through and through. Matte finish silver handles, or handle-free cabinets are perfect to complete this look. To solidify this look as a contemporary design, opt for a gray granite countertop and, perhaps, a red backdrop against which the black color will stand out. If you find red too bold, it is safe to stick to white as this combination is also perfect.
Cabinet Knobs and Handles: Changing small things in cabinets can make a big difference and changing the knobs and handles of the kitchen cabinets does the same thing for you. You can replace the overused and unnoticeable knobs and handles with the new designer ones that can change the look of your kitchen instantly. Go for bigger handles and knobs that would catch the eyes and attentions of the viewer and distract his mind from the old cabinets. This is one of the best ideas, if you have an extremely low-budget for remodeling purpose.
