The kitchen is the hub of the home and with a family tracking through it day by day, the design can become old and boring. Maybe a total remodel isn’t in the budget, but there are very inexpensive changes that make a big statement, without breaking the bank. One big change that most people don’t think about is switching out your cabinet hardware.
The hardware on your cabinets might seem like a really small change, but it is a really great adjustment that can give your kitchen that finishing touch it needs! There are many different types of handles, pulls, and knobs that picking out the perfect hardware might be more of a task than you think! Keep in mind the vision you are looking to achieve in your kitchen as well as your design style.
The traditional: Depending on your cabinet color, add a bit of contrast; go with a great finish like a bronze or something with an antique feel, while keeping in mind the shape of the knob or pull should be classic and conventional.
The modern: Don’t be afraid of very angular hardware. Bringing in silver to add contrast will make your handles or knobs pop. Keep in mind modern and simple lines that will add a striking statement.
The eclectic: Go crazy! Choose fun colors, different shapes, and and don’t be afraid of having different pulls than your knobs, after all they can easily be changed out!
TIP: Bring your current knob, pull, and/or handle with you when shopping, so you match the existing holes in your cabinets.
