It can be a step that is often overlooked, but don’t underestimate the power of a good knob - it can make or break a room. This is why you need to put some thought into what hardware you’re going to finish your cabinetry and doors off with! This blog is here to give you some handy hints on how to make sure you’re choosing the right hook, handle , and hardware for your home.THINK ABOUT THE STYLE!
This might seem obvious, but when you’re designing, it’s important to have this front and center in your mind when choosing your hardware.CHOOSE YOUR HARDWARE LAST!
When choosing cabinets for your home, it’s best to consider the hardware LAST. If you do this, you can then adjust your fasteners to the style of cabinetry you’re using. Choosing the hardware for your kitchen is like choosing your jewelry to match your outfit. Once you’ve got all your ducks in a row in the rest of your home, you can then go through and choose handles and knobs that are consistent throughout your design.DO YOU NEED KNOBS OR PULLS?
This is an important question. There can be a big difference between a knob and a pull - especially in the kitchen. If you’re choosing for drawers, knobs will more than do the trick, but if you’re planning a pantry or for larger pull-outs, a pull would be a-lot more convenient. This can be particularly important for drawers that will store large pots and pans - these can get pretty heavy.
THINK ABOUT YOUR FINISHES
It’s always best to try to match your tapware and towel rails to your drawer pulls - having matte black fittings and brass knobs will look just plain wrong.
