You have the perfect layout for your kitchen, the perfect shade of cabinets, a stunning tile backsplash, and now just one decision remains: the kitchen cabinet hardware. It may not seem like much to decide, but the hardware is essential to the style of the space.
Knobs or Pulls
When it comes to choosing the right cabinet hardware your first step is deciding on the type of hardware you would like in your kitchen. You can have a combination of knobs and pulls, or your preference may be to just use pulls. Pulls work well on drawers as they are easier to grip than knobs and it is better to use knobs on cabinet doors. You also need to consider the size required for the drawers and doors. They should be in correct proportion to the cabinetry.
Choosing the Hardware Finish
Another choice that will have to be made is the finish of the cabinet hardware. Trending finishes are brushed nickel and chrome and becoming more popular over the past few years is antique brass. Even though the cabinet hardware doesn’t have to match the faucet and lighting, it should coordinate and compliment the other finishes.
Selecting the Style of Hardware
Think about cabinet hardware as the jewelry of the cabinets, enhancing the room and your design style. There are countless hardware options and having a clear idea of the style you are trying to achieve will reduce the options to the ones that are best suited for your space. A popular choice among our customers are the bar pulls which are usually used in modern style kitchens. Bin drawer pulls give a relaxed look adding just the right amount of casual to the cabinetry. Alternatively, you can opt for hardware has extra oomph to it with more intricate details.
