It took you forever to find that perfect sink, but the kitchen design tools were quite handy in giving you new ideas on where to place it.

Hardware Reflects Your Kitchen Design Style

Your kitchen ideas and design choices should be a reflection of you. That includes the hardware that graces those brand-new kitchen cabinets. Why go with the same old look? The kitchen cabinet hardware you choose can be anything from the most traditional you can find to the most eclectic.

  • Traditional hardware includes copper, silver, and brass. These style options are endless and can fit into any decor you can imagine. The colors are traditional enough for the most stately kitchen.
  • Unusual designs include big bold colors, wide or long handles that don't fit into the traditional mold, and sometimes, no knobs or pulls at all.
  • Make a statement with designs that reflect who you are. Intricate designs, such as leaves fashioned into pulls or jewels for knobs are great ways to add some whimsy to your kitchen design.
  • Try unique cabinets that don't require pulls to open. Cabinets with handles built into the wood can impart a sleek, smooth look to your kitchen design.

The options for kitchen cabinet hardware are literally endless. Why stick with just one style? Mix and match all of them for an even more eclectic look that is sure to draw comments from your guests.
