Tips for Choosing Cabinet Hardware
If you are installing new cabinets and countertops, or if you are repairing your old cabinets and countertops, one thing you may want to reconsider is your cabinet hardware.
One thing that is always overlooked is kitchen hardware, its knobs and handles, while small, have a huge impact on the overall visual effect of your kitchen. There are several tips to keep in mind when choosing kitchen cabinet hardware.
Color – Color alone or your cabinet accessories can make a statement in a room or blend in with elegance. There are many colors to choose from, depending on who gets your knobs and pulls. The most common colors for cabinets are black / forged, brushed steel, polished steel, brass, copper. There are many more colors to choose from that are not listed here either.
Style – The style you choose for your cabinets should be reflected in your cabinet hardware. If you choose a simplistic design, you may want to choose a flip that is also simplistic in design. You may not want to put a hand-forged Celtic knot in a design that is more of a Victorian design. Styles are difficult to list, there are many, and they are always changing.
You have thousands of options to choose from, not only decide on what COULD look good or what the dealer might have in stock, but make sure your hardware matches not only your cabinet styles, but the rest of your cabinets as well. the elements of your kitchen.
