Hot off the tails of last week’s blog post, we are talking hardware options. Switching out your hardware can be an easy refresh to your cabinets or furniture piece, another bonus is the millions of options there are too choose from!
For this week’s post we have rounded up our top six hardware styles and given you two budget options, because you know we love a good deal! In addition to seeing our favourite styles, we are answering some of the basic questions that come with choosing and/or changing your hardware.
Question One: Knob or Pull?
The choice of hardware shape you pick is totally dependant on two things; what works for the piece and what works for you in your everyday life. What we mean by your hardware working for you is the need of making sure that yes your piece looks great, but is it functional? There is a reason that knobs are so popular for lighter weighted pieces and pulls for larger ones.
Question Two: Detailed or Keep it Simple?
Because there are so many options to choose from in the design world, it is good to narrow down your search to these two basic categories; simple or detailed. We love the beautiful touch that a detailed knob or pull can add to a simple piece. But, there is something to be said for keeping things clean, simple and classic.

Question Three: Splurge or Save?
The age old question in the interior design world, “Should I splurge or save?”. There are many variables that can help guide you make this decision, i.e. What is my budget? What is this piece’s purpose? How many do I need? Do I need to replace my existing piece or just give it a facelift with my handy-dandy spray paint?
Because we cannot make those decisions at this time, check out our picks below and let us know your thoughts on the topic; Is hardware splurge-worthy? If so, why? If not, why not?!
