Chrome is the brightest and most reflective of the cabinet hardware finishes. Choose chrome cabinet hardware if you want a brightly polished look to brighten up your kitchen or bathroom. Chrome cabinet hardware has a cool undertone, so it contrasts with warm colors and blends in more with a dominantly cool-colored room. Chrome is also one of the easiest finishes to clean and is perfect for kitchen or bathroom knobs, which need to be cleaned regularly. Chrome cabinet hardware comes in several textures, such as brushed chrome, polished chrome and satin chrome.
