When you’re planning a new kitchen or bathroom, you probably think about the big stuff: the countertops, the cabinets, the vanity, the appliances, the flooring. But little things can make a big difference, too. Particularly, when it comes to kitchens or bathrooms, that means hardware.

Tips for Choosing Hardware
Narrow down your cabinet style first.
The style of cabinet hardware you choose will depend a great deal on the style of your space, and also on the style of cabinets you choose. Traditionally styled cabinets with more intricate face profiles call for traditional hardware: Cabinets with more simply styled or completely flat faces look best with minimal, streamlined knobs and pulls.
Cup pulls are a nice complement to Shaker-style cabinets, particularly in a country-style kitchen. Recessed hardware can make for a particularly elegant and modern look, but also tends to be a bit on the pricey side. Slim, modern finger pull type hardware, which mounts to the top of a drawer or the edge of a cabinet, is a nice choice for flat-front cabinets in a modern kitchen.
Consider the other metals in your kitchen.
What color are your appliances, lighting, and faucets? For some people, matching hardware to appliances may not be particularly important—we’ve seen plenty of kitchens with brass pulls and stainless appliances. But if you like everything to coordinate, consider the whole space when you pick the color of your hardware. (If your appliances are stainless and you don’t particularly like the look of silver pulls, black hardware makes for a harmonious look that isn’t too matchy).
