Setting an Intimate Mood for Mealtime

Stainless steel is extremely durable; unlike wood, it will never warp, crack or suffer the indignity of mold or mildew. Stainless steel kitchen cabinet designs have an industrial look that can be a great complement to just about any kitchen, but they're most often employed in kitchens with a more modern style.

One thing to keep in mind if you're considering stainless steel kitchen cabinets is that they can easily combine with other materials to create great visual interest and contrast. Wood—in particular natural, unfinished or gently stained wood—can make an excellent, bold complement to stainless steel kitchen cabinets.

You may also want to consider adding color to other elements of your kitchen if stainless steel cabinets are part of the design scheme. Pops of red, green or blue can add liveliness and personality and offset the monochrome look of steel.

Lastly, if you want to tone down the look of stainless steel kitchen cabinets slightly, consider adding glass panels to stainless steel cabinet doors. This is not just an efficient way to keep track of what you're storing, it's also an attractive balance for the stainless steel surfaces. Leaded, opaque or patterned glass can work just as well as clear styles.
