Each stage of the planning and design process is critical, including selecting the perfect hardware to go with your freshly painted cabinets. There are many different options to choose from, and we understand it can feel overwhelming to make the perfect selection.
That’s why our team is here to help you narrow down your options with the various cabinet hardware designs, finishes, and sizes and help ensure you’re left with a look to love for decades to come in your Brookings home.
Here are a few essential tips to get you started.
#1 – Decide between cabinet knobs or pulls.
Of course hardware is in place to make opening and closing your cabinets easier, but it’s also central to your kitchen design, too.
Pulls are commonly used on cabinet drawers while knobs are typically used on cabinet doors. You can choose a combination of the two, or all knobs or all pulls. There’s room for you to be creative and make your decision based on preference. Keep in mind that more modern designs usually implement simple, sleek hardware while tradition style leans toward more ornate knobs and pulls.
If you do mix and match a combination of pulls and knobs, try to stick to the same finish for all of your hardware so there’s a coordinating element that ties them all together.
#2 – Select the finish for your cabinet hardware.
Next, decide on your hardware finish. Common choices are black, polished nickel, brushed nickel, brass, or oil-rubbed bronze. Also be sure to stick with the same manufacturer if possible, as different companies have variations in their hardware colors. Aim to be consistent with your hardware color in the same room, then you can add other metals through decor or accents.
#3 – Choose your hardware size.
Cabinet hardware comes in many shapes and sizes. It may be helpful to remember that modern cabinet pulls are often 9 inches or longer and transitional pulls are about 5 to 7 inches long. For hardware knobs, focus more on shape than on size. Don’t be afraid to mix and match sizes for your hardware even in the same room if you’d like to.
