As you consider how to change your kitchen cabinet design with cabinet refacing, look around for ways to revamp the entire room. Why not make the transformation complete by coordinating your cabinet refacing with your kitchen sink and faucet?

Kitchen Sink Area Makes Design Statement

The kitchen sink is an important area, as it is highly visible and is the center of the functional work in the kitchen. When blending new cabinet refacing styles with the existing kitchen sink and faucet, consider:
  • The kitchen sink material and color.
  • The kitchen faucet finish--blend an older brass or chrome faucet with light colored kitchen cabinet woods.
  • The style of both products--contemporary or traditional? Trendy or simplistic?

New Kitchen Sink Styles

Kitchen sinks are sold in a variety of sizes, shapes, and materials. Among the popular kitchen sinks are stainless steel models, which can blend with any cabinet style. Consider using traditional oak cabinet doors and drawers with a double bowl, stainless steel sink, for example. Among the other kitchen sink materials are:
  • Cast iron, a durable kitchen sink material that can add an old-fashioned look to a kitchen design.
  • Solid surface material, which is seamless and often adds a more contemporary look.
  • Enameled steel, an economical kitchen sink material that is made in neutral colors.

Focus on Kitchen Faucet Finish

The kitchen faucet now will add the finishing touch to the new kitchen design. Look for faucets with high arching spouts or with sleek spouts that include sprayers. Among the popular faucet finishes are satin nickel, brushed chrome, and antique brass.

Kitchen cabinet refacing can add a whole new look to your kitchen design. By combining cabinet refacing with a new sink and faucet, you can help transform the entire kitchen.
