Stainless steel is usually the dominant metal in the kitchen regarding appliances, sinks, faucets, and smaller accessories. Stainless steel is very popular and adds a modern touch (and is easy to clean); however, because it is a cool metal it can make the kitchen seem cold and less inviting. Of all rooms in the home, the kitchen should be the most welcoming.

There are many alternatives to stainless steel: copper, rubbed oil bronze, and brushed nickel. Using alternative metals is often associated with more traditional kitchens, but also works well with other design styles. Adding a few of the warmer metals or brushed nickel into the kitchen can add warmth and character to the space, while still keeping it contemporary.
