Updating your kitchen can be an exciting experience, but there’s a lot to take into consideration. Just like picking accessories to match your favorite outfit, you have to spruce up your redesigned space with the ideal cabinet hardware. Your cabinet knobs and pulls are the permanent jewelry of your kitchen, so you want to make sure they complement the cabinet doors. With so many hardware styles, though, it can be tricky making a decision. Here are three useful tips for simplifying the decision process.
Funky, Fresh, or Formula?
The initial step is determining your kitchen’s character. Are the cabinets and appliances you have chosen sleek and sophisticated, quite standard, or a bit more exotic? Do you want your cabinet knobs and pulls to complement the existing surroundings, or are you looking for some contrast to spice up the room? Determining the overall appearance you’re aiming for will help you narrow your hardware search.
Keep Your Cabinets in Mind
Even if you’re leaning towards something that will add contrast to your space and really be the focal piece, don’t stray too far from the cabinet’s design scheme. You’ll want to make sure the knobs and handles you select don’t detract from the beauty of the space as a whole.
Don’t Ignore the Fixtures
With that in mind, don’t forget about the remainder of the space. When deciding which hardware to add, take into consideration the light fixtures, appliances, and other decorative elements. If you’re overhead lighting, refrigerator handles, and stove are silver, for instance, then gold knobs and pulls on your drawers and cabinets may clash and not be a good pairing.
