Making Hardware Fun

by Kitchen and Bath Center / August 7, 2018

Most of us focus on the big-ticket items to turn heads when it comes to a kitchen and bathroom remodel, but don’t underestimate the impact of the smaller, finishing touches. Often time, these are the opportunities when homeowners can really inject their own personalities and passions into the project, creating a look completely their own. 

The on-trends finishes for cabinet handles, hinges, drawer pulls, and knobs today include brushed nickel, oil-rubbed bronze and black bronze. But that’s just the beginning of what you can find. Vintage-inspired hardware collections feature unique painted patterns, beaded kitchen hardware is glitzy and feminine, and some designers are even predicting brass will make a comeback. 

Cabinet hardware is available at a reasonable price compared to some of the other major investments you make in a kitchen or bath remodel, so this is the place to experiment if you want to add some pizzazz to your project, like whimsical fork and spoon-shaped knobs or a bold pop of color. 

From timeless traditional to fun and funky, here are some great ideas for your home:

Novelty Knobs

Love to travel or have a favorite barnyard pal? Do you, with novelty knobs like these.


Unusual Shapes

Graceful curves, retro forms and charming patterns add unusual shapes to round out your spaces.   


A Touch of Color

Brighten up your space by adding small pops of color.
