The Best Materials and Finishes to use in your Kitchen Design

March 8, 2021

We all know your kitchen is the most used and abused area in your home. So, when it comes to completing your kitchen remodel, it is important that the materials and finishes you choose are durable and function well. This will ensure that the heart of your home lasts a lifetime and keeps its modern look.

Here are the many options of the best materials every homeowner should consider using in their kitchen renovation!

Quartz countertops

When it comes to choosing a countertop material, it is important to choose one that can stand the daily hits, scrapes and scratches. While there are many lavish countertop materials out there, very few perform with such durability like quartz. Another brilliant feature of quartz is that it never has to be sealed.

Marmoleum flooring

This highly recommended affordable flooring is eco-friendly, tough as nails and made from linseed oil, limestone, wood flour, and jute. It comes in both sheets and tiles, with endless colors and patterns to choose from. If you have children and pets, laying marmoleum flooring is a no-brainer.

Composite sinks

Granite composite sinks are made of manufactured stone feel, are as solid as a rock, scratch-resistant and easy to clean. Unlike stainless steel that tends to harbor water stains and food gunk, the darker version of composite sinks is like camouflaging devices for dirt and bits of food.

Durable Kitchen Cabinetry

There are multiple factors that determine the quality and durability of kitchen cabinets. It is important to narrow your choices to semi-custom or custom cabinets. While pre-made cabinets are cheaper, they tend to be lower quality. Most cabinetry is made from engineered wood products, such as particleboard, MDF and plywood. So be sure that when you are  comparing kitchen cabinetry brands, take a close look at the material used inside and outside. Open shelving is also a brilliant modern touch especially if you have a small kitchen and a small space for cabinetry.

Brass Faucets

Your kitchen faucet is the most used item in your kitchen. It is important to choose a faucet with a solid brass body that will last longer, does not show finger stains, and stands up better to corrosion than other metals.

These are a few finishes you can use to give your modern kitchen design a golden touch.

  • Warm up the space with brass.
  • Add some sparkle with chrome.
  • Swap a few boring white kitchen tiles with colorful glass tiles.
  • Add some light color fabric.
  • Create a mural with cement.
  • Open the kitchen for some natural light.
