When you’re renovating your kitchen, it can be really tough to pick finishes that will complement each other. Sometimes having everything the same colour or finish can be too much, and you may want to throw in different textures or finishes to break up the main colour or finish you’ve chosen. One popular option with Oakville homeowners, with almost unlimited options, is wood and white for your kitchen. There are so many ways you can mix and match these two to make the perfect kitchen for you and your family.

White Appliances

Many homeowners think that stainless steel is really the only option when buying new appliances, but that isn’t true. All white appliances with wood finish cupboards can make smaller kitchens look much more open and give the appearance of more space. Whether it’s just a fridge and a stove, or fridge, stove microwave and dishwasher – take the time to consider white appliances to go with your wood finish cupboards for a fresh makeover in your kitchen.

A Natural Look

When you’re renovating your kitchen and looking at new cupboards and counters there are so many options for how you want the end product to look. A great way to get a very natural and airy feeling is to combine bamboo finish cupboards with white granite or quartz countertops. You can add stainless steel appliances and fixtures for a more modern look, too.

Build an Island

Do you have big kitchen that feels like there is maybe just too much open space and it’s not warm or welcoming? Building a wood finished island in the kitchen can create warmth and add in a gathering place for all friends and family. Wood makes a space feel warmer, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to make it feel smaller. The island will double as storage, and you can even create a little breakfast bar for gathering and chatting.

The Modern Look

Depending on the layout of your home, this kind of modern look might not be an option but it is something to consider. If you don’t know exactly how to incorporate different finishes into your kitchen, or maybe you just want an all-white kitchen because it looks clean, then perhaps you integrate a different finish in another way. Features such as exposed beams or complimentary chairs are a great way to break up all the white in a kitchen without compromising the finishes you want.

Flooring

Tiles are a common option used for flooring in kitchens, but it doesn’t have to be the only thing you have to pick. Wood flooring – whether it’s real hardwood, laminate or luxury vinyl plank – can bring together your kitchen with the rest of the home if you use the same flooring throughout. Furthermore, wood flooring can provide a nice contrast against white cupboards.
