Has Your Kitchen Hardware Stood the Test of Time?

Getting caught up in the broad view can be easy when planning a kitchen remodel. You may be looking at a significant shift in the layout, a dramatic unfolding of a new color scheme, an entire suite of new appliances, or all of the above. It feels big because it is! But once your concept has become a plan, it’s time to accessorize, and it’s no secret that designers have a soft spot for hardware.

What is cabinet hardware?

Also known as the jewelry of the kitchen or bathroom, cabinet hardware refers to the knobs and pulls attached to your doors and drawers. While their primary purpose is function, they can transform the look of any room and help define your home’s style.

Like paint colors, countertop materials, and lighting, kitchen hardware flows along with interior design trends. Polished brass came back into favor, thanks to cottagecore and the popularity of vintage accents. At the same time, Shaker-style wood knobs were modernized due to a demand for Scandinavian simplicity and painted wooden cabinets. Whether your style leans industrial or farmhouse, minimalist or contemporary, there’s a kitchen hardware trend to suit it.

Top Kitchen Hardware Trends for 2024:

Retro Revolution: Heirloom-quality hardware has not only withstood the test of time, but we’ve also seen a resurgence in the quest for the comfort of these classic styles.

Brass: This classic finish is making a comeback in polished, satin, French antique, or unlacquered, adding a touch of elegance and vintage charm to modern kitchens.

Polished Nickel: If the warmer yellow tones of brass aren’t your style, perhaps the quiet luxury of polished nickel fits the bill.

Matte Black: A bold and contemporary choice, matte black hardware creates a sleek and sophisticated look, especially when paired with white or light-colored cabinets.

Mixed Metals: Embrace the trend of mixing different metal finishes to create a unique and eclectic style in your kitchen.

Minimalist Handles: Sleek and understated handles and pulls contribute to a minimalist and modern aesthetic, perfect for streamlined and clutter-free kitchen designs.

Of course, these are only a sample of the plentitude of shapes, colors, and styles available. You can always move away from traditional round knobs and explore hardware with organic and irregular shapes for a natural and artisanal feel. Or make a bold statement with oversized and eye-catching hardware pieces that become the focal point of your kitchen cabinetry.
