We’ve all reached for it–hardware on our cabinets and drawers that is. Hardware comes in all shapes and sizes, as well as in a variety of colors and finishes. We wrap our hand around a polished brass knob, a nickel brushed handle, and you pull, revealing some of your most personal possessions.
Everything from laundry detergent to lingerie to utensils to our Docking Drawers are tucked away in our drawers and cabinets. You probably don’t even give your hardware much thought–as long as it provides you access to what you’re REALLY wanting to get to–and that’s just unfortunate.
When homeowners start on a kitchen or bathroom remodel, chances are they’ve pictured the new paint color, the shiny floors that will be installed, and even that picture perfect cabinetry. Rarely however do they think about the tiny details that go into remodeling a room in their home. While the right cabinets should be built and the proper flooring installed, hardware for your drawers and cabinets is one of those tiny details that just shouldn’t be overlooked. That’s because with the right hardware, your room can take on a whole new look. What’s more, replacing hardware is a much cheaper option than tearing out an entire room and starting from scratch.
The best part is that with today’s hardware design, there’s a lot more that goes into choosing the right match for your home. Products span from contemporary to traditional styles and each style boasts its own appeal. Contemporary hardware, such as jewel encrusted finishes or even white finishes, can give your home a youthful burst of energy that oozes from every corner. Additionally older hardware that is seeing a resurgence, such as brass, can give your home the more worldly style that it craves. On the other hand, traditional finishes such as oil rubbed bronze is a bold choice, giving off that warm, inviting shine.
There are infinite opportunities to make the hardware on your cabinets and drawers stand out from the crowd. What hardware will you choose?
