Learn about three small kitchen design details that matter.

Continue reading to learn about small kitchen design details that can make or break the look of the entire room.

Cabinet Hardware

Cabinet hardware has a major effect on the look of your kitchen, as the small detail should pull together the room and make other design elements feel cohesive. The style hardware you chose will also affect the functionality of the cabinets, as there is a big difference between handles, knobs, pulls, etc. For modern kitchens, sleek, tubular handles and drawer pulls are a good selection, as they fit in well with other modern design elements. In addition to the shape and style, you must choose the perfect finish. While not all hardware in your kitchen needs to match, they all need to look cohesive rather than out of place.

Light Fixtures

Light fixtures are also a big part of your kitchen design, as styles change a lot over time and can easily make the room look outdated. Even when you don’t need a major kitchen redesign, switching out the lighting fixtures for more modern pieces is a quick and easy way to update the room.

Adding more lights is an excellent way to make your kitchen feel brighter, especially in important the food preparation work areas. A large, beautiful pendant lighting in the center of the kitchen makes a perfect focal point, and placing pendant lights over the island or breakfast nook makes a stylish yet functional choice.

Plugs and Switches

Plugs are switches are such a small feature that you may not give them any thought at all during your kitchen redesign. However, you don’t have to stick with the basic white plastic pieces that everyone uses- there are plenty of options that can add personality and color to your kitchen! Do some researching, and you will find a variety of switches and plugs that come in modern styles with dimmers and different finishes for the perfect extra touch to the room.
