All You Need To Know Before Selecting The Kitchen Hardware

It is quite easy to get overwhelmed while choosing large kitchen items such as countertops, flooring, or cabinets. However, a kitchen remodeling project remains incomplete without the selection of kitchen hardware to strike the right chord between features and functions. This project needs proper planning, preparation, and budgeting for everything to fall into place. You must have a clear vision and understanding of your ideas and plan ahead to prevent these pitfalls. Decorative kitchen hardware is available in multiple types, styles, colors, materials, sizes, and finishes. If you are planning to redo your kitchen space, follow these tips to bring the space together. The final finishing touch not only decorates the space but also pulls everything together and reflects your sense of style. Types of Kitchen Decorative Hardware Style of Kitchen Hardware The hardware items you choose for your kitchen cabinetry must go with the overall kitchen design. There are various types of cabinet hardware for the kitchen to choose from:

  • Contemporary Style
Contemporary style comes with less embellishment, a neutral color tone, and sleek lines. If you want to keep this style, choose hardware that is streamlined and very simple to look at, like the linear bar or curvy barrel handles.
  • Traditional Style
The USP of traditional kitchen design lies in the grand embellishments, moldings, and intricate detailing. If you like a traditional look, go for fancy knobs or embellished drop handles.
  • Rustic Style
Rustic style screams warming and simple knob or pulls hardware with a copper, bronze, or black finish.
  • Transitional Style
A transitional style is a perfect mix of traditional and contemporary designs. You can assemble the clean cabinetry door look with less ornate hardware like a curved handle. Materials The materials for kitchen hardware are available in different varieties, however, mostly in metal alloys. Brass hardware comes with plating or dyed to the surface. It has antimicrobial properties and is durable. Bronze hardware looks good with wooden cabinets. They are also antimicrobial. Other options are stainless steel, nickel, crystal, glass, and ceramics knobs. Size and Position of Cabinet Handles While selecting handles for kitchen cabinets, consider the aesthetics, measurement, function, and balance before deciding whether to go for a knob or pull handles. An oversized drawer or door needs a large hardware item, while smaller ones need a smaller-sized pull or knob. Besides, the position of pulls is typically vertical on doors and horizontal on drawers. Knobs are just installed using a screw through the focused entry point on both doors and drawers. Combination of Functionality and Comfort Your kitchen hardware should not only match the theme and style of the space but also be very comfortable to use. Hence, it is important to decide on several features suiting your preferences. The functionality and comfort are the two factors that must come before everything else while getting hardware for the kitchen. It is better to make sure they are easy to use before purchasing. You can actually use the hardware items to check the comfort and functionality rather than just choosing them from the catalog based on their looks. Make it a point to check whether the edges are rough or sharp. Is the space enough to put fingers through them, and does it close softly? Budget Plan Even though your budget is something you should look at while selecting items during kitchen remodeling, never compromise on the quality and performance to get them in cheaper options. Remember, your kitchen hardware will pass through daily wear and tear. So, if you negotiate now on the quality, your products might not last long.
