Cabinet Hardware

Cabinet Hardware Items
Between the kitchen and bathroom, you’ve probably got at least a dozen in your home, and if someone lived there before you, chances are you don’t really like them. Something as small as drawer pulls and cabinet knobs can change the entire look of a space, kind of like adding jewelry to a basic outfit. Yet oftentimes we find ourselves living with outdated and just plain ugly knobs someone else chose. Luckily there are a million options on the market these days so we don’t have to live that way anymore.

Cabinet hardware is the finishing touch in your kitchen and can often be referred to as the jewelry of the cabinetry. Even though this may be the last selection you make in your kitchen remodel, it’s important to remember that cabinet hardware will make a big impact on the look and feel of the entire room. It’s also important to remember that you’ll be touching and using this hardware multiple times each day, so you will also need to consider functionality. With so many styles and finishes available, it can be overwhelming to make a final selection. Read on for some tips and considerations that will help you select the right hardware to enhance your design.

Consider Budget

Cabinet hardware is available in a variety of materials, from inexpensive plastic to high-end solid metal. A typical kitchen can have anywhere between 20-40 knobs and pulls, which can add up quickly. Purchasing quality cabinet hardware that has a solid construction is a wise investment, even if the upfront costs are a little higher. The finish of less expensive knobs can wear and even wipe off completely over time, which can lessen the look of your new kitchen. A solid metal knob will not dent, last longer and feel heavier, adding to the value of your renovation.

Select Style

As a designer, one of the more common questions I get asked about cabinet hardware is quite simply, knobs or pulls? Traditionally, knobs are used for doors and pulls for drawers. However, not every kitchen will be a traditional kitchen, and we have seen trends of kitchens using all knobs or all pulls. If you’re going for more of a contemporary or modern look, don’t be afraid to use pulls on everything. Like the photo above, using all knobs pairs very well with a cottage style kitchen. As the end user, you will have to determine how the hardware feels in your hands. Generally, a larger knob will be easier to use than a smaller knob, as there is more surface area for your hand to grab onto. Additionally, pulls will be easier to use than a knob, especially one wide enough to get the backside of your hand through. Also, keep scale in mind. If you are doing taller wall cabinets or a tall pantry cabinet, a long pull looks wonderful mounted vertically on those larger doors.

Select Proof

When it comes to finishes, let the cabinet hardware items in your room be your guide. Consider the finish of your cabinetry along with the metals on your major appliances, sink, faucet and other fixtures. One fool proof way of selecting your hardware is to choose a finish that coordinates with the other metals in your room and that contrasts with your cabinetry. For example, many clients with stainless steel appliances and dark cabinetry will choose satin nickel hardware to blend with the stainless steel and contrast with the darker wood like the photo above. Interested in mixing finishes? There’s no need to match every finish. We love the contrasting copper sink against the satin nickel. If cabinet hinges are exposed, you may be a little more limited as your hardware should have the same finish to keep the look consistent.
