Update with Cabinet Hardware

An economical way to give your kitchen a facelift is to update with cabinet hardware.  Whether you have stock, semi-stock, or custom cabinets, a simple change of this feature can give a fresh look and feel to the kitchen, which is the family center and busiest room of most homes.

Cabinet knobs, cabinet pulls, and cabinet handles are readily available in ceramic, plastic, crystal, and metals such as brass, stainless steel, and chrome.  The less textured the surface of any kitchen cabinet hardware, the easier it will be to keep clean.  Style and functionality are the primary considerations.  When seeking a unified theme, be sure to include cabinet hinges with any changes.  The type of hinge to use is determined by how the door is hung on the cabinet, whether it is inset, abetted, standard overlay, or full overlay.

Cabinets are most frequently described as either a base cabinet, including sink base and corner base, wall cabinet, or tall cabinet.  Accessories abound to enhance the serviceability of each of these units, such as lazy Susan’s, drawer dividers, and pull-out shelves.  However, the visual impact and attractiveness of any kitchen are immediately notched up when the choice is made to update with cabinet hardware.

Consider the materials used in the construction of your kitchen cabinets prior to selecting cabinet hardware.  For the fixtures to be mounted properly, take into account whether you will be attaching them to wood, or plywood, particleboard, or medium-density fiberboard, also known as MDF.  Manufacturers typically cover all wood composites with materials including wood veneers, plastics such as laminates or melamine, the vinyl product Thermofoil, or even stainless steel and enameled metals.

Door designs cover a wide spectrum of styles and kitchen cabinet hardware should serve as a compliment.  If the kitchen cabinets are Cape Cod, Shaker, Arch, Raised Panel, or one of many other offerings, the finish also can vary from wood tone, glazed surface, or color, with distressing or heirlooms.  Perhaps glass panels have been set into some of the cabinet doors.  Weigh all of these variables when making your selection of cabinet pulls, cabinet knobs, and cabinet handles, to express your true individuality in a unique and practical way.
