Are you ready to trade in your rusty reds and deep browns for a fresh, modern look? Texas homeowners have always loved rustic style homes. And this also means rustic cabinetry. Since we here at Cabinet IQ are based in the capital of the lone star state, Austin, Texas. We know a thing or two about rustic homes. Even if you still enjoy a rustic style throughout your home, there can be ways to make it look rustic chic, or just more of a modern version. For many people, a kitchen renovation may not be in the budget, or it might just be the wrong time of your life. Whatever the situation may be, we have your back. Our team completely understands that a full kitchen remodel may not be for everyone for the time being. There are many ways to give your kitchen cabinets a refresh. After years in the remodeling industry, we want to share our knowledge that we have learned through our own trials and tribulations.
Hardware is one of the cost effective ways to transform your space. It can also be a very noticeable detail throughout. Hardware comes in many different colors and styles. In 2022, we typically see: brushed gold, antique gold, polished gold, brass, bronze, silver, or black. Adding gold hardware to brown cabinets can be a nice contrast. Or, silver hardware is very complementary to gray cabinetry. For white, we would say either would be a nice touch. We even see some clients opting for mixed metals to create a more industrial look. Soft close hardware for your cabinet doors and drawer glides are another nice upgrade. Hardware can be purchased through many vendors online or in store. If you are local to the Austin, Texas area, our two local showrooms can also provide hardware for you.
Backsplash is a great way to accent your kitchen. It highlights the cabinets and countertops, and adds dimension. There is a vast variety of styles that backsplash comes in many different vendors. The most popular types of modern backsplash are: ceramic tile, subway tiles, marble, and those that include modern shapes and patterns. The average cost to redo backsplash is between $500-$1000 depending on your specific layout, and material you choose to go with. This is a great option for those that may not be ready to invest a lot of money into the project. A modern backsplash can do wonders with rustic cabinetry, and even countertops. Our designers suggest neutral colors, earth toned materials, and ceramic finishes. Or even a dark contrast such as black, or dark gray to highlight your neutral color scheme.
With all of this being said, there are endless ways to love your space, and make it your own.
