Remodeling projects often allow homeowners to be excited to get the kitchen of their dreams, including customized features, upgraded materials and appliances, colors, textures, storage options and overall design. Unfortunately, the hardware for your kitchen is often overlooked and homeowners settle for hardware that is often regrettable. Hardware comes in all sizes, colors and styles, whether you prefer pull or knob, and color options include silver, gold, bronze, copper, black and other finishes. With this in mind, we at Straight Up Remodeling would offer some in sight while selecting the right hardware for your kitchen remodel.
How to Choose Pulls or Knobs
To make finding the right hardware easier, your selections are narrowed by 50% once you decide this option. You need to weigh both form and function to decide on knob versus pull hardware. For a firm but agile approach, pulls are simpler to use and offer easy gripping. A kitchen usually looks outdated when knobs are exclusively used. When knobs are used on cabinets and pulls are used on drawers, kitchens tend to look more impressive. A combination of both will offer a more unique style. Although still useful when you have other minor details you would rather shine the spotlight on, knobs do not make as much as a statement than pulls, so they tend to be less expensive. To provide a very attractive finished look to the kitchen, the pulls make more of an impact to the style of your kitchen. The appearance means little regardless of hardware, if the use is awkward and uncomfortable. In order to complete the kitchen tasks, most people want to move swiftly and efficiently. You need to consider other people in the house including any elderly, small children, even pets when choosing hardware.
High End to Discount Kitchen Hardware
There are priorities you have when remodeling your kitchen and budget matters. You need to make sure hardware you are looking fits the budget. When you need replacements over time, you also may want to have a few extras. When selecting the hardware, don’t sacrifice quality. Be prepared with extras for when you need replacements.
Kitchen Hardware Finishes
You can compliment the kitchen or have it clash with the wrong hardware finish. It is important they should all match in color, whether chrome, brushed nickel, brass, and so on. Hardware should all match in color, no matter if you implement both knob and pull, or one or the other. Consider corresponding it to metal accents such as the faucet, lighting and appliances.
The finish depends significantly on the cabinetry, ultimately. With a bold finish on hardware features on white cabinets, contrast can be visually striking for example. For instance, gray cabinets are gorgeous with pewter, black, and silver and gold, bronze, and black complements cabinets with warm tones.
Kitchen Hardware Style Trends
Be sure to assess the other features and elements of the kitchen to determine the right style for your kitchen hardware. In the cabinets, countertop edges and light fixtures, look for the square or curved lines. Contemporary tends to have square lines and curves are traditional.
