(NC) Updating your finishes is a simple way to
update your home and set the tone for your living space. From
traditional to modern, there are a variety of options available to match
the design of any room.
Here is a helpful guide to kitchen and bathroom finishes from Natalia David, trend and design manager at The Home Depot Canada.
Matte black. One of the season’s trendiest finishes, matte black is
popular across all categories including appliances, cabinetry, and
bathroom and kitchen fixtures such as faucets and shower systems. This
finish creates a dramatic, modern look that never goes out of style.
Brushed textures. With a subtle sheen, brushed finishes such as gold,
brass and nickel ensure a timeless design. One of the most durable
options on the market, brushed options are resistant to fingerprints and
water spots. This versatile style is also easy to match with other
accessories and fixtures.
Chrome. Chrome continues to be a popular selection for kitchen and
bathroom fixtures and hardware. This finish creates a sleek look that
pairs well with contemporary design and sculptural fixtures.
Mix and match. Why choose just one? Don’t be afraid to combine
finishes to create an eclectic look. Incorporating multiple styles adds
dimension and infuses your space with personality. As a general rule, do
not use more than three finishes per room to avoid visual clutter.
