Looking for a cost-effective way to upgrade any room in your home? An attractive hardware selection that coordinates well with the style and colors of your kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms can provide a lovely finishing touch to cabinets, doors, and furniture. You can think of hardware as the “jewelry” of the interior of the home. Some people elect not to put any hardware at all on their cabinets. However, we do not recommend this. No matter how clean your kitchen is or how careful you are, over time, the natural oils in your skin will eventually cause a discoloration in the finish at the point where you touch the door or drawer each time you open it.
Knobs are easily switched out, so this project will take little to no effort. Hardware can be purchased at a variety of stores including hobby stores, salvage shops, Home Depot / Lowes, home furnishing stores, and tons of online outlets. Conversely, with the right choice of decorative or contemporary hardware, your existing cabinets, doors or furniture pieces will take on a new life saving you thousands of dollars in replacement costs.
Check out the picture below for examples of decorative and modern knobs and pullouts that can add a personal touch to any room. The featured kitchen in the picture is one of our recent projects, tell us what you think!
