TRENDS FOR KITCHEN CABINET HARDWARE
· Matte black finishes
· Satin black finishes
· Satin nickel finishes
· Satin brass finishes
· Latches instead of knobs
· Mixing and matching knobs and pulls
· Square bar pulls instead of tubular
Some of the newest kitchen cabinet hardware ideas include matte black and satin brass finishes. Matte black is trending in all forms of hardware - from cabinets to doorknobs to light fixtures. It's a sleeker and more modern take on the oil rubbed bronze trend of the past, and one that adds a wonderful contrast to the all-white spaces we've been seeing lately.
The shiny, tarnished brass that was in our childhood homes looks much different from the antique and satin finishes available today. Brass and gold finished cabinet hardware is here to stay for the foreseeable future, and we can see why - It adds warmth to white, navy or gray cabinets and works with all design styles. Brass also adds elegance and looks amazing with the new rich green cabinet colors which are trending now.
SHOULD I USE KNOBS OR PULLS ON KITCHEN CABINETS?
The general consensus is that most people are used to putting knobs on cabinets and pulls on drawers or large pantry doors. And yes, you can definitely mix and match! But there is no reason why you can’t put vertical pulls on your cabinet doors for a more updated look – it’s actually trending now as well.
If you're still struggling with what to choose, especially when it comes to knobs and pulls, buy a few samples and see them in person. It will give you a much better idea of how they look against your cabinets and with the other aspects of the room.
