Just like most stylists wouldn’t dream of creating an outfit without earrings, a purse, shoes or even a necklace, designers are finding the Café Custom Hardware line is the perfect statement to finish styling a kitchen.
Many interior designers acknowledge a parallel between styling a look and designing a home. Interior designers who have used the Café Customizable Professional collection in their designs share how the custom finishes were the exact element they needed to provide that polished, final touch.
“I love the way the brushed bronze finish complements so many plumbing fixtures and kitchen knobs.”
– Gretchen Black, Designer
“My husband and I build and design spec homes in our area. I love the way the brushed bronze finish complements so many plumbing fixtures and kitchen knobs. This makes it easy to match finishes for a cohesive feel in your kitchen,” said Designer Gretchen Black.
The line also provides versatility for her clients. “If they’re looking to change the vibe in their kitchen without investing in all new appliances, Café appliance hardware can be easily switched out.” Trade the lovely, brushed copper finish for a brushed black. “You have options as your tastes may change.”
“I wanted what we chose to work with the cabinet hardware.”
– Raili Clasen, Designer
Raili Clasen, a designer who used Café’s hardware in her own Costa Mesa, California home, loves the cohesion the hardware brings to her space. “I wanted what we chose to work with the cabinet hardware,” says Clasen. “With the choices Café offered, there were great options for the kitchen and bar we designed.”
“I love the way the appliance handles tie in with our faucet, light fixture, and cabinet hardware for a cohesive, refined look.”
– Mollie Openshaw, Designer
Mollie Openshaw, an interior designer who added pop to her own kitchen remodel with Café custom hardware. “I love the way the appliance handles tie in with our faucet, light fixture, and cabinet hardware for a cohesive, refined look,” says Openshaw who opted for gold/bronze accents against darker tones.
Another designer, Rebecca Raskind, appreciates how the hardware can be used across various design styles. “In one project, we used Matte White appliances so the custom hardware was essential. The warm copper tone worked with the rest of the finishes in the kitchen and added interest as something unique and different,” says Raskind. “For another project, we used bronze hardware on the cooktop. It complemented all our other brass finishes in the home and the kitchen. It turned out to be a stunning detail!”
For Raskind, these details captured the homeowner’s satisfaction. “The Café appliances and their custom hardware at both projects received an outstanding response. Custom details really make a difference in setting the kitchen apart from those with more basic appliances.”
