Hardware - Knobs and Pulls

I love hardware! I am specifically talking about cabinet door knobs and pulls.


So here is the thing - knobs and pulls are the bestest - yes, that is a word! :), easiest, coolest, and least expensive way (usually) to decorate and spice up your kitchen cabinets.


Not only that, knobs and pulls give you a chance to express your individual personality and let you style shine! Don't be afraid of being different!!


Of course, you can use these also on any desk, furniture items like a dresser, end table, nightstand, or chest. Anything with a door and a drawer, you can and you should style with a little flare.


Much too often, I see the same old, boring, dull pulls. You know which ones I am talking about, right? Or should I paint you a picture?


Since picture is worth a thousand words....


These are one of the most commonly used drawer handles today.

I beg you - please search a little more and find something a little more unique than this.


And because I have seen these so often - I will NEVER ever ever - ever use them in any of my projects.


Before I share my favorite stores and examples of some super cool hardware, here is my tip for selecting the right ones for you:


I always complement my door, backsplash, or something else in the room, like a light fixture - this means if my door is a shaker style, I will most likely use a more square, clean line pull. If I am complementing my backsplash, I may use a more curved handle - but I always pay attention how the handle shape will work with my door style. I may also use back splash shape or color to help me select my hardware.


For example, when I used a hex tile on my backsplash, I used hex knobs and pulls on my cabinet doors. I like to have some similarity in the space, whether that is shape, color, style, or finish.


I want to share with you some of my favorite online stores, and I will pull at least a few of my all time favorite knobs and pulls from each one.


I really hope this is eye opening for you and I hope that when you shop for kitchen or door or drawer hardware - I hope you use these links to find something fab. And if you do - please share your cool finds with me!
