Dennis Serge: Choosing Cabinet Hardware

Many customers have a difficult time deciding on the hardware they want to put on their cabinets. Most people don’t have a problem selecting a finish that they like, but the question becomes do they want all knobs, all pulls, or some combination thereof? I have seen installations where knobs or pulls were used throughout and they look fine. Some customers will opt for a combination, using knobs on the doors and pulls on the drawer fronts or vice versa. The truth of the matter is there is no right or wrong way to do it. Choose what is visually appealing to you and something that you will be comfortable with.

Some people elect not to put any hardware at all on their cabinets. However, I do not recommend this. No matter how clean your kitchen is or how careful you are, over time, the natural oils in your skin will eventually cause a discoloration in the finish at the point where you touch the door or drawer each time you open it.

An attractive hardware selection that coordinates well with the style and colors of your cabinets and countertops can provide a lovely finishing touch to your beautiful new kitchen.

Do-it-Yourself Decorative Hardware Swap

Oil Rubbed Bronze Pulls from Top Knobs

Vanity Hardware from Top Knobs

Looking for a fun little do-it-yourself project? Why not spruce up your kitchen or bathroom vanity before the holidays? Come into any Kitchen Views showroom to see our wide selection of affordable decorative hardware. You can easily swap out knobs and pulls yourself to give your kitchen a little lift.

Our showrooms offer a wide selection of knobs and pulls ranging from the whimsical to the traditional. Come in to a Kitchen Views showroom to see what works best for your kitchen or vanity. Knobs are easily switched out. But if you’re replacing a handle or pull, be sure to bring in an existing piece to be certain the spacing for screws is the same. You wouldn’t want to get home and find that you would have to drill a new hole and cover the old one.

To see some examples of what Kitchen Views has to offer, read Brandy Souza’s blog post, “Tiffany’s Never Had it So Good.” You can also check out the Kitchen Views web page about decorative hardware.
