I think most people would agree that Kitchens are an important part of any home. Kitchens are often the heart of the house, where everyone gathers to eat, drink, and socialise. Kitchens are also one of the smartest places in the home to invest in. However, kitchen remodels are not cheap, but they're a few things that you can do to upgrade the look and feel of your kitchen instantly, that are inexpensive. One of them being changing the kitchen hardware.
When we moved into our house, there were a lot of things that needed upgrading. The kitchen however was not exactly old, and had been remodelled a few years before we moved in. Although the kitchen looked new, it wasn't quite our style, and it wouldn't have been our first choice if we were designing the house ourselves. We loved the modern style of the kitchen, and we loved the white backsplash, but there was something that wasn't sitting right with us. Maybe it was the fact that there was so much wood; wood cabinets, wood countertops, and now new hardwood floors. So we thought that if we could paint the kitchen cabinets a dark grey color, and leave the wood counter tops exposed, and then replaced the hardware with gold handles, that would be a great contrasting look. However, we got a few quotes to get the cabinets painted, and everything was way out of our budget. I did contemplate painting them my self, and I still might do that one day, but I wanted to work with what we had, and spend the least amount of money possible. That's when I had the idea to change the kitchen hardware to matte black handles. I knew the black handles would look great against the light oak wood cabinets, and they would go well with the black chairs we had in our breakfast nook. So I did some searching on the internet and found these great matte black handles from Houzz. We made sure they were the right size for our current cabinets, and as soon as they arrived my husband installed them super fast, and boy did they make a difference. See below for the before and after shots, and let me know what you think.
