28 Oct Choosing the Right Cabinet Hardware
When designing a kitchen or bathroom, many people spend large amounts of time contemplating which cabinet color is right for the space. This is an important decision, but it often overshadows another very important decision: which cabinet hardware should I choose? Although small, these cabinet knobs (if chosen correctly) can really add a touch of style to your kitchen or bathroom! Think about it – the average kitchen has 20 to 40 knobs, and you will see and touch them everyday! It is definitely an important decision.
We understand that no two kitchens are alike, which is why here at Knotty Alder we provide you with many different cabinet knobs and handles to choose from, all available in both brushed nickel or rubbed bronze finishes, so you can have exactly what your cabinets need!
In order to save you some stress in making yet another decision, we’ve gathered some tips for choosing the right cabinet hardware:
- Think about how they contrast with the cabinet color. Brushed nickel knobs/handles can offset nicely a stained wood grain or darker cabinets. Lighter cabinets look great with darker knobs or handles.
- Consider your kitchen faucet style and finish. This will help you to tie all aspects of your design together.
- Choose a shape that suits you. Some knobs are smooth and sleek (great for modern spaces), while others have more design and detail (great for traditional spaces). Pick something that you feel is comfortable for your fingers to handle and pull and that works well with the room.
As you follow these tips, as well as your own sense of style, you will love the way your new space looks and feels! We want you to be 100% satisfied with your cabinets and hardware, and we are here to assist you throughout the decision-making and installation process!
