brakur_knobs_and_pulls.jpgThere are so many different decisions that have to be made when remodeling or getting a kitchen for your new construction home. For most homeowners they might think that choosing knobs and pulls would be the easiest decision to make. Choosing the right kitchen cabinet hardware is just as important as choosing the big stuff. It is not something you want to brush over and not pay attention to.

Kitchen cabinet hardware will make or break the overall look and design of your Chicagoland kitchen. Putting inexpensive knobs and pulls on a high end custom cabinet can make it look ordinary and detract from the style and look of the kitchen.

With so many wonderful options and different styles to choose from there are few tips that we wanted to share to help you pick and find the right knobs and pulls for your custom kitchen cabinets.

Tips for Choosing Knobs and Pulls

  • Choose finishes such as satin nickel, chrome, and bronze. They are neutral and something that appeals to most people.
  • Match your hardware to your kitchen faucet finish and style
  • Use a mixture of knobs and pulls in your kitchen.
  • When using pulls, choose larger ones that are easier to grab onto and enhance the universal design of your kitchen
  • Splurge a little to get quality hardware and avoid plastic. The finish wears off easily.
