One of the easiest ways to change the look of your kitchen without investing a lot of time or money, is by installing new cabinet hardware. Whether you are remodeling or designing a brand new kitchen, the cabinet hardware will make a big impact on the look of the entire room. The same style of cabinet can have a completely different look with different hardware. Glass knobs can give the cabinet a vintage feel, while brushed nickel pulls will give the cabinets a more modern look, and bronze knobs can have a more classic appearance. Here are some great examples of our favorite cabinet hardware design ideas:
Oil-rubbed bronze knobs and pulls can bring a classic and timeless look to your kitchen. You can also use these to give your kitchen a “Tuscan” look, as the dark, rich texture can lend an old-world feel while complementing many different cabinet styles.
Contemporary hardware in a brushed or shiny nickel finish will give your kitchen a more modern, clean look, and will blend easily with stainless steel appliances for a sleek and uniform finish.
A round or square black knob or pull with a hammered look will lend a simple and rustic charm to your cabinets (think Arts & Crafts style), and pair nicely with any hand-hewn or stained wood cabinets.
Bronze, black, or nickel “cup” pulls will deliver a vintage farmhouse look in any kitchen, especially when accompanied by white bead board or flat panel cabinets.
These are just a few of the many exciting options available for your knob, pull, and handle choices. Remember, kitchen hardware is like jewelry for your cabinets and can be the finishing touch that pulls your whole design together. Don’t hesitate to have fun with your choices and let your personal style show through. If you have any questions or need help with design ideas, please contact us at Cabinet Cures.
