How to Select Cabinet Hardware

Remember the Cabinet HardwareIf you’ve been planning a kitchen or bathroom update, you’ve probably got your hands full selecting materials, colors, and so much more. With so much going on, it is easy to overlook the simple necessities, such as cabinet hardware. Did you know you can specifically select the knobs and pull handles which will fit your home and your personal style? Cabinet hardware may seem insignificant, but these items will significantly influence the appearance of your space. There are, however, an enormous number of options available; so you can easily become overwhelmed. To help make your decision a little simpler, here are three cabinet hardware selection tips to keep in mind before finalizing arrangements with your contractor.

1. Start with Your Cabinets

Your cabinets will tell you a lot about what your cabinet hardware should look like. Use them as a starting point when making your selections. While the hardware you choose can certainly add contrast, don’t let your love for the whimsical stray too far from the natural beauty of the cabinets themselves.

2. Add a Dash of Character

There’s more to cabinet knobs and drawer pulls than just functionality. You should choose hardware items that fit your personal design style as well. Simple can be beautiful and elegant, but don’t shy away from funky and fresh if it matches your kitchen design.

3. Consider Your Space

If you’re updating your kitchen, it’s important to keep the rest of your space in mind too. Do you have stainless steel appliances or black ones? What other colors accent your space already? Make sure you don’t choose hardware that will clash with your other design elements. Your kitchen will look best when everything appears coordinated.
