Make a Statement with Cabinet Hardware

Sometimes the smallest details make the most lasting impression. That certainly is the case with decorative cabinet hardware. When remodeling your kitchen or bath, you often find yourself more concerned with the cabinets and countertops, making sure your choices are perfect for the spectacular look you want. However, the hardware you select has a significant design impact on your cabinets. It will either enhance the appearance, or do just the opposite. Therefore, it is important not to make hardware selection a last minute decision. Take the time to consider whether the hardware is simply calling attention to itself, or is it intensifying the beauty of your cabinets?
Simple, clean lines with minimal decoration is forecasted to be the design trend for decorative hardware in 2019, whether the style of your kitchen or bath is transitional or contemporary. Today’s exciting warm new finishes—such as matte black, brushed gold and satin bronze—pair well with both white and dark wood surfaces, making your cabinets really pop. Popular finishes from recent years—like polished chrome, satin nickel, and oil rubbed bronze—are still available as well.
Hardware is one of the ways you can personalize your cabinets. The old rule that everything has to match no longer applies. Today, everything is about mixing it up; finding things that you love and pulling it all together to express your own personal style. Experiment with mixing different hardware designs that have the same finish, or use the same hardware design, but in different finishes. Knobs and pulls fashioned from natural stone, glass or leather provide other options. How refreshing it is to know that no one else will bring together the exact same combination of cabinets and hardware that you choose for your kitchen.

For a very modern, sleek appearance, your cabinets can be designed with hardware that is almost invisible. For example, hidden pulls are installed at the top edge of a cabinet door or drawer front so just a tiny portion protrudes, yet these pulls are quite easy to grasp with your fingers. Some cabinets have integrated handles, which means there is an inward notch or beveled edge that you can grab ahold of to open the door. And then there are push latches that actually are invisible from the outside. These latches are installed inside the cabinets, and when you push gently against the cabinet door it automatically opens.

In addition to aesthetics, one of the most important considerations should be how your cabinet hardware functions and feels to your hand. Since you continually open and close your cabinet doors and drawers, hand comfort and accessibility is vital. For some people with limited hand mobility, a pull may be easier to grasp than a knob. In this case, test out your preferred handles before you make the final choices.
