As a follow up to last week's blog Moms 3 Step Guide to Selecting Hardware, I wanted to share some fun hardware that adds lots of personality to any room! I tried to cover online retail sources like Anthropologie and Schoolhouse as well as traditional hardware suppliers like Emtek and Hardware Resources. Don't overlook Home Depot and Target though because they have some fun choices to. The good news is there are LOTS of options :) I'm a big fan of clean, modern hardware lines. Look for the product links under each photo.
I'm really like modern gold hardware and love using accent stone or glass pieces mixed in here and there. Speciality cabinets like a coffee bar or wine bar in the kitchen or a bath vanity in a powder room are great places to use unique more trendy pieces.
Below are a few pieces in an oil rubbed bronze finish. I personally like it when the bronze has a copper undertone and warmth like the ones below versus a flat brown finish unless you are going for a true historic feel.
To round it out, I also included some chrome, antique pewter and matte black pieces updated into sleek styles. I am a fan of using both knobs and pulls on cabinets to add interest so I tried to include one of each that worked together.
There are no right or wrong rules for picking kitchen hardware finishes. It really comes down to personal preference. I like to stick with no more than 2 metal finishes in one room at at time to keep things consistent. Happy shopping!
