When a person if ready to upgrade their appliances they often ask: “To go with stainless steel or not to?” This is a question that interior designers get all the time. But what if you wanted to take the stainless steel look further? Here is Design Connection, Inc.’s take on the subject.

The kitchen becomes a focal point during the holiday’s. But day to day it is the hub of the home. We spend a lot of time in our kitchens: cooking, talking, eating, homework etc. Honestly, where would we be without our kitchens?

Stainless steel has a way of taking your kitchen from drab to bam instantly! The most obvious use of stainless steel is with the appliances. This Design Connection, Inc. kitchen was transformed not only with faux painted cabinets, countertops and backslash, but also with the new sleek stainless steel appliances.

The sink is a heavy duty area of the kitchen. The shape, size and faucet is often times a design element. Here are two examples of stainless steel sinks that add both function and beauty. Kohler sinks and accessories are beautiful click here to see some of their options. A great local showroom in Kansas city is Ferguson click here to check them out.

If you are not ready for new appliances but want to start the stainless steel look, consider changing your kitchen’s hardware. You can start with the knobs and pulls of the drawers and cabinets. Or switch out the faucets. If you still want to take is a step further and want a sleek looking kitchen you can create a stainless steel backsplash. Another option is to change out your light fixtures with a stainless steel look.

Design Tip!

Before you start changing things, think of the design feel you want to create long term. Make sure that as you add on design elements there is a cohesive look to the kitchen. A professional interior designer can help you make the best decisions for your home and save you money in the process.
