Help decide brushed nickel hardware or black?

MNexlurkerFebruary 5, 2013

Having trouble deciding depends on the day - sometimes black sometimes brushed nickel hardware. Kitchen: Very narrow 8'x7' with 24" cabinet on left side and 18' on right side Galley and approximately 10'x12'. So kinda L shaped
Helpful information:
Ceiling: Brushed nickel tin ceiling tiles
Cabinets: Custom made 9 foot to ceiling with glass top in old soffet area will be painted Behr silky white.
Countertop: Honed Absolute Black granite
Appliances: Frigidaire Professional - silver mist except cooktop is black Frigidare Gallery line
Sink: Blanco silgranit super single Black
Faucet: Belle Foret Satin nickel bridge style with side sprayer

Also Marbel subway tiles or a glossy white subway tile?

I'd go with glossy white on the subway tiles - it would be a beautiful contrast to the granite. I'm partial to brushed nickel hardware. I have it in my curent kitchen and am doing it again in my kitchen reno that starts next week. But, there is no wrong answer. I just think the black reads a bit more contemporary and the tin ceiling is more traditional old world.

Thanks for the quick reply. That is what my gut has been telling me, anyone else willing to give me their opinion?

I accidentally ordered the wrong hardware for my cabinets. I thought I was ordering Satin Nickel but ended up with Antique Silver (Amerock pulls) which ended up being great. The Antique Silver has silver/nickle and black coloring so it could possibly work out for you and depending on the light shinning on it, it looks more of one color or the other.

I would also go with nickel or the antique silver that slappified mentioned.

Thanks Ladies. I will check out the antique silver. It sounds interesting and may just be the perfect choice.

I have antique pewter hardware and it blends so well with stainless and black, with good dimensionality.

Thanks linelle for another possibility. So many more choices than I thought. Later tonight I will spend sometime looking online and hopefully get somewhere this weekend to see them in person too.
