When it comes to kitchen design, every detail counts. Every design choice contributes to the overall ambiance, from countertops to appliances. Among these details, kitchen cabinet hardware stands out. The hardware you choose can make or break the look of your cabinets, and affect the space’s overall aesthetic. In this guide, Artisan Remodeling & Design’s founder, Sarah Bilbro, highlights her favorite kitchen cabinet hardware brands.
Discover Luxury with Top Knobs
“If you appreciate the finer things in life, Top Knobs is the epitome of luxury. Each piece transforms an ordinary kitchen into a lavish space, and that’s why it’s my go-to luxury hardware brand,” says our founder. The craftsmanship and design excellence shine through in every piece. Sarah’s favorite is Top Knobs’ Aspen Collection. “It effortlessly combines traditional and contemporary styles, giving your kitchen a versatile and sophisticated look. The rounded pulls from the Aspen collection are some of my favorites.”
Amerock: Bronzes Made Perfect
“Matching existing bronze hardware is tricky”, notes Sarah. With countless shades to navigate, matching them can be a challenge, but Amerock makes it a breeze. “Their hardware seamlessly complements existing and commonly used Kohler products; when we need to match Kohler bronze, we choose Amerock.” Our current favorite from Amerock? The Versa Collection flawlessly combines style and utility, ensuring your kitchen not only looks good but functions flawlessly.
Atlas: Where Affordability Meets Elegance
Atlas offers the best of both worlds: affordability and elegance. “It stands tall alongside luxury brands like Top Knobs, but at a slightly more accessible price point,” shares Sarah. The Round Rail and Para collections from Atlas are unbeatable for those who want to infuse a modern touch into their kitchens. “Both collections bring a distinct contemporary flair, making them ideal for kitchens designed with modernity in mind.”
Mix and Match: Elevate Your Design with Knobs and Pulls
“One design strategy we love is mixing knobs and pulls,” says Sarah. “It’s not just about choosing the right hardware; it’s about how you use them.” Mixing knobs and pulls adds an extra layer to the design, creating a nuanced look that can be tailored to individual preferences. The traditional approach involves using knobs on doors and pulls on drawers, providing a balanced look to prevent overwhelming the design. However, for those looking to shake things up, “the emerging trend of double knobs on drawers and pulls on doors introduces a really nice symmetry.”
Final Thoughts on Kitchen Cabinet Hardware Choices
The beauty of kitchen design lies in the details. And when it comes to kitchen cabinet hardware, investing time into selecting it elevates your kitchen from ordinary to extraordinary. Whether you’re leaning towards the luxury of Top Knobs, the versatility of Amerock, or the contemporary charm of Atlas, ensure that your choice reflects your personal style. Remember, it’s not just about aesthetics; functionality is key. And with the right hardware, you can achieve both with ease.
