Hardware is the jewelry of the kitchen. In a well-designed space, it can add an important finishing touch. In a space that needs a little help, it can provide some sparkle to help distract from worn or outdated features that may be more difficult to update. And, it’s an easy, inexpensive project you can do yourself.
Whether your taste runs to traditional, transitional, modern, vintage, or funky, hardware can help you express your style and add another distinctive element to your kitchen. And the good news is, you can take the hardware with you when you move. With all the talk about overpersonalizing and how it can hurt the salability of your home, this is one place you can go crazy.
Just beware of hardware that makes such noticeable holes in your cabinets they can’t be easily repaired if you remove them when you sell your home.
The latest trends
Hardware is a great way to bring the latest trends into your kitchen. Because they can be easily changed out, you don’t have to worry about your space becoming outdated when brass and golden-hued hardware is no longer the latest thing (again).
In a high-end kitchen, the right hardware can offer just the right touch to bring it all together. Exposed hardware adds another unique element.
Bring an artistic feel to your kitchen with a touch of glass…art glass, to be specific. Available in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes, it might be just the right thing to bring a personal touch to your kitchen.
