Say Goodbye to Ordinary: The Latest Cabinetry Hardware Trends

The right cabinet hardware is like adding jewelry to a beautiful dress—it completes the look and adds that extra sparkle. But we know that choosing the perfect hardware can be overwhelming, but it doesn't have to be!

Mixed Metals

One trend that's been gaining popularity is mixed metal finishes. Instead of sticking with one finish for all your hardware, try incorporating different metals such as gold, brass, chrome, and black into your space for a more eclectic look.  

Mixing gold, brass, silver, and black metals adds depth and interest in any room, especially with white cabinets.

For example, pairing matte black knobs with shiny gold handles gives a modern twist on traditional cabinetry. On the other hand, brushed nickel pulls paired with antique brass hinges provide an understated elegance that's perfect for farmhouse-style kitchens. Tres Chic!

Gold is Grand

Gold NEVER goes out of style! From brushed golden brass to rose gold and champagne tones, gold adds an easy touch of luxury that can make the kitchen, bathroom, or master closet look fabulous!  

The best part? Whether you have rich espresso cabinets or crisp white ones, gold-toned knobs and pulls add a touch of luxuriousness and warmth. The metallic finish catches the light beautifully, adding visual interest to your home design. Plus, gold-toned hardware is versatile enough to work with a variety of decor styles—from contemporary to glam.

No Hardware

If you are tired of standard hardware cabinets and are looking for a fresh, unique look, try cutout pulls instead! These quirky mid-century modern touches are perfect for those who want to stand out from the crowd.

Cutout pulls come in various shapes and sizes, allowing you to choose the one that best suits your taste. Whether it's a simple circle or a more intricate design, these pulls add character to any piece of furniture. They're also versatile – they can be used on kitchen cabinets, dressers, desk drawers, and so much more.

Not only do cutout pulls add aesthetic value but they're also functional. They offer an easy grip which is great for people with arthritis or gripping issues. Plus the lack of protruding hardware makes them less susceptible to snagging clothing or objects passing by. Nice!

Eye Catching Glass

Glass knobs and pulls were once a popular choice for cabinet hardware, but they fell out of favor during the Great Depression. Perhaps it was their perceived frivolity that made them seem inappropriate during such grim times. However, glass hardware is now making a comeback in the world of interior design.  

Glass knobs and pulls offer versatility and refinement that other types of cabinet hardware simply cannot match as they come in an array of colors, shapes, and sizes to suit any décor style.

Whether you prefer a classic or contemporary look for your cabinets, there's sure to be a glass knob or pull that fits the bill.

Barely There Pulls

These cabinet handles are the perfect choice for those who want a minimalist look without sacrificing functionality. They are barely noticeable, blending seamlessly into the edges of your cabinets.

Not only do edge pulls look great, but they are also easy to maintain and use. Unlike traditional knobs or handles that can accumulate dirt and grime over time, edge pulls are simple to clean with just a damp cloth.

Go Matte Black

Matte black cabinet hardware is becoming increasingly popular among homeowners who want to add some edginess to their kitchen design.

This finish pairs perfectly with white or light-colored cabinets, creating a bold contrast that makes a statement without being too overpowering. The best part? Matte black goes well with almost ANY color scheme or decor style, so you don't have to worry about it clashing with your existing design elements.

Whimsical Colors

Adding colorful cabinet hardware can instantly transform your space and give it a touch of whimsy. And when we say color, we mean that you shouldn’t be afraid to go BOLD with bright hues like coral, yellow, or turquoise! Or if you want an understated look, opt for subtle pastels in various colors.  

And don’t forget to look for fun shapes, patterns, and textures to truly make a statement!
