What is metallic detailing?
Metallic detailing is the use of metal or metallic finishings. In the kitchen, the small details really make a big impact on the overall look and feel of your kitchen space, and the finishings or trims can be an important consideration.
What are the most effective ways to use metallic detailing in kitchen design?
So how can you use metallic detailing in your kitchen space? And how can you be sure of effective results? Well, there are several different options, including:
- Handles- cupboard handles can become a key design feature if these are planned and designed effectively. These can be made of various metals, including copper and brass as well as steel. For a contemporary kitchen space, door handles will probably be better off avoided, with handleless doors being more effective for the style. However for country, rustic or traditional kitchens, metallic handles can be an effective way to add style.
- Taps and sink details- the taps and spout of your sink can be the perfect place to add metallic details to your kitchen, with these available in a range of metals and metallic styles from rich brasses to light chrome.
- Statement lighting- finally, another of the most effective options for metallic detailing is to use metallic light fittings or statement light pieces. From ceiling lights to accent lighting, metal light fixtures can be a stylish design choice. These can even be perfect for contemporary spaces, as well as traditional or country kitchens.
