How to Select Cabinet Hardware for Your New Home in Chesterfield

December 19, 2013

2866837_m Cabinet hardware can affect the overall appearance of your kitchen so it is important to know what look and feel you want to achieve inside your new home in Chesterfield. When choosing hardware choose knobs and pulls that are sturdy, smooth and nice to the touch. Remember you will be touching them multiple times daily. If you want your kitchen to have a contemporary look, think “streamlined”. Use sleek tubular or rectangular pulls or knobs to achieve a modern look. European style kitchens look best with old world inspired hardware like, iron looking ring pulls or a vintage oil rubbed cup pulls.  If you are going for a more rustic look use hardware that has a hammered effect or looks slightly weathered. Glass knobs are a great option and should not be overlooked. They will add a touch of glamour in your kitchen. Glass knobs can provide sparkle and color to your kitchen and look great paired with black cabinets. White cabinets look great with almost any finish or color of hardware while darker cabinets look better with lighter color or finished hardware. It is a good idea to consider your light fixtures and finishes you are using inside you kitchen. It is not necessary to match your finish. You can mix finishes like chrome and brushed nickel or brass and oil rubbed bronze. However if your cabinet hinges are exposed you do want to match the finish of your knobs for a more cohesive look. Keeping these things in mind will help you choose the right hardware for you kitchen inside your new home in Chesterfield!
