Remodeling the kitchen and bathroom involves a lot of decision-making when it comes to overall design. This is especially true when it comes to selecting the right kitchen or bathroom cabinet hardware. If you’re having trouble picking among the dozens of options out there, here are a few tips from our granite and cabinet experts to get you started.
Knobs or Pulls
Kitchen and bathroom cabinets will either have knobs or pulls that help you open them easier. Knobs are less likely to get caught up in your clothes when moving around while pulls provide more leverage for opening compartments. Classic-themed designs generally favor knobs while contemporary ones use more pulls.
Edges and Curves
The profile of your kitchen can be defined by the small details. According to interior experts, going for curved designs on pulls and knobs to match other kitchen features with curvy characteristics help unify the look of your kitchen. The same thing can also be said for straight-edged hardware that matches straight-edged granite countertops.
Pick Your Finish
Cabinet hardware can also be made to match your faucets and other kitchen features. Pulls with chrome finishes are popular in more modern designs while brass or copper suits classic kitchen designs better.
Get Pros to Install Them
Just like with any other remodeling project, the experts will always recommend hiring a professional to install kitchen or bathroom cabinet hardware. This way, you can be sure that the new additions to your kitchen will be properly secured and are lined up just right. Even cheap granite countertops installed by a pro will be more than likely to outlast something installed by an amateur.
