Simple Update: Cabinet Hardware

Simple Update: Cabinet Hardware


While new paint will revitalize your kitchen, this may also be a good time to consider changing the hardware in your kitchen. Cabinets can last a really long time, unfortunately, the same cannot be said about kitchen hardware.

As a general rule, metal works best for hardware for the simple reason that it is, well, metal. It is durable, sturdy and resistant to minor bumps and knocks. Within metal, however, you have a lot of choices: nickel and brass have a timeless appeal while steel is sleeker and more contemporary.

Silver is also a great choice but may not be the best idea if your kitchen has a lot of rough usages (think oily hands!) or if you wish to keep costs down. And should you go for knobs or handles? Again, you can choose one or both to give a slightly edgier look to your kitchen.

The point here essentially is that while changing cabinets can cost a lot and involves a lot of efforts, the hardware is much easier to update and more affordable. And when the knobs look nice, even slightly old cabinets will look as good as new.
