3 Essential Things to Consider When Selecting Cabinetry Hardware

When planning your kitchen renovation or selecting items for your ideal kitchen in your new custom home, choosing a small detail such as your kitchen cabinetry hardware can make the difference. One aspect homeowners might not imagine is that pulls, handles, and knobs can contribute to creating that unique style in your new custom home. 

Think about your cabinetry hardware as the jewelry you want for your kitchen. Your hardware selection can create a luxurious look, a traditional or modern style, and of course, it can make your kitchen and home interior stand out.

Practicality and Style for your Ideal Custom Kitchen

As Calgary custom home builders, we know that your kitchen can become one of the busiest rooms at home. Your ideal kitchen can be designed to entertain guests and be the center of your day to day family time. If you decide to custom build your home as an open space the kitchen will not only be for cooking, and your kitchen style will complement your living room as well. Once you have gone through the process of choosing functional and stylish cabinetry, then it will be time to select hardware that is also comfortable and stylish.

Materials available for your Pulls, Knobs, and Handles

For your kitchen cabinetry, you will be able to find many sizes: small cabinet knobs, cabinet handles, and extra-long cabinet handles. You can find wood, ceramic, glass, and metal knobs, with round and cup styles. They can be a beautiful decorative element, but if you seek practicality and style for your drawers and cabinets we recommend handles instead of knobs as they are easier to pull. The most used material is metal as it remains the most durable option, a matte finish easily matches all kinds of woodwork, and its maintenance turns out to be the easiest.

Matching your Home Style and your Hardware

If you choose handles, they can be placed depending on the style you envision for your home. For modern homes, pick long line handles for your kitchen cabinetry and put them horizontally. For traditional homes, you can decide to use knobs with details for small drawers and drop handles for bigger cabinets, maybe adding a ceramic finish for a vintage look. Finally, if you go with the transitional home, you can blend both styles and combine cup knobs with small line bar handles.

Too Long Didn’t Read (TLDR)

Knobs are the best option for traditional homes; ceramic knobs will add style to your kitchen cabinetry. If you prefer a modern look choose metal long line handles for your kitchen and satin stainless steel for your doors.
