Kitchen Cabinet Hardware

Kitchen Cabinet Hardware

Kitchen cabinet hardware is an essential part of the overall look of the design. Deciding on it might be rather an anguished process. I speak from experience. At the end, though, the anguish will certainly be, or can be, worth every change of mind you have. You want the material and finish of the hardware to complement the rest of your decor. It might be that replacing your kitchen cabinet hardware is all you need to accompany the paint job to give you a new look. Thats for you to decide.

Every style, material and finish that you can conceive of as you design your dream kitchen is probably available. This applies to kitchen remodeling also. You dont have to strip down to the studs and a dirt floor to create a new room. Watch Design on a Dime on HGTV and youll understand how little it takes to create a new look and feel.

Hinges, cabinet pulls and drawer pulls are what I mean when I refer to kitchen cabinet hardware. Hinges come in several varieties. These include wraparound, faceframe, surfacemount, inset, overlay, reversebevel and fullinset. The implications and uses of these you might want to discuss with a hardware specialist.

Cabinet and drawer pulls also come in several varieties, but not so many: knobs, handles and pulls. This decision might be the most difficult one. The style choices here are almost unlimited. You can choose from porcelain, steel, bronze, brass, wrought iron and copper. After that the actual finish of the material selected. Vendors often offer hundreds, even thousands, of options.
