Reinvigorate Your Cabinets & Vanity
Cabinet hardware is a great accessory to influence any design style. It is a way to transform a space quickly and inexpensively. Maybe you are looking to redecorate your kitchen or bathroom or yearning to revamp an old piece of furniture. New knobs and pulls are one of the easiest ways to revitalize a space. There are a variety of finishes and styles to choose from.
Forget the notion that knobs and pulls need to be the same finish as your faucet in the kitchen or bathroom. A contrast in finishes can add warmth and vigor to any room. Some finishes that play well off of brushed nickel or brushed stainless faucet: antique pewter, bronze, aluminum, black matte, and rust. Chrome faucets are more limited to the finishes that can mix-and-match. Choose a white, black, dark bronze, pewter, or clear glass finish in contrast.
For more modern or traditional design styles, use soft gold finishes to add richness to a room. Does the room have a more opulent and luxurious look? Then choose a crystal, glass, or brass knobs. Yes, you read that correctly. CRYSTAL KNOBS! Check out the Alno Swarovski Crystal Series for an added touch of bling and color.
The cost of knobs and pulls vary from $7 to upwards of $100. Prices are determined by finish and design style. The more material used for a pull will affect pricing.
Typically, pulls are used for drawers and knobs are used for doors, but not always. When choosing a knob, or pull for that matter, make sure it feels right in your hand. Be sure to consider the maintenance that will be required for the hardware chosen.
