Kitchen Cabinet Hardware Adds Style
After you change the look and feel of your kitchen with cabinet refacing, you might want to make some new and bold changes. After all, you undoubtedly saved money by refacing the cabinets rather than replacing them.
One inexpensive way to give your kitchen more personality is to add new hinges, knobs, and drawer pulls. With a small investment of just $1 to $10 for a single piece of hardware, you can drastically change the look of your kitchen and give it a whole new style.
There are many types of kitchen cabinet hardware available today. If a sleek, modern look is what you’re seeking you may want to choose hardware with a metal finish. This type of look goes well with stainless steel.
You can use the same type of hardware throughout your kitchen or you can mix and match different patterns and designs. Some of the most popular metal hardware materials are satin nickel, brushed chrome, aged copper and wrought iron.
Apart from the material you choose, you must also consider the size and styling of your kitchen cabinet hardware. You will find many shapes and sizes to choose from – everything from cylindrical metal handles to round knobs with floral leaf patterns. When you plan your cabinet refacing project, keep in mind which styles would be best for your cabinet door fronts and drawer frames.
Adding kitchen cabinet hardware is a good investment. Cabinet refacing is so much less than the cost incurred in installing new kitchen cabinets; so, refacing allows you to invest in the small details which really bring new life to your kitchen. Why not invest an extra $50 to $150 in hardware that really makes your kitchen look classy?
