Hardware design is decoration with a purpose, and it’s purpose goes beyond the utilitarian. People who design cabinet door and drawer pulls consider the shape, feel, and aesthetic, and well-designed hardware conveys its beauty in a subtle way.
My favorite place to find beautifully-crafted hardware is Top Knobs.
This firm’s products cannot be found in Home Depot or Lowes, they are in the medium range and Top Knobs says it is the number one brand of professionally installed cabinet hardware in North America. They offer a lifetime warranty for defects in materials and craftsmanship.
Top Knobs hardware products are distinctive because of their distinct quality. When handling them you notice they are quite heavy and feel solid. Although, Top Knobs is not an e-commerce business, the company does provide a free sample program on their website. There, you will find hundreds of designs within many collections, which means you have a great variety from which to choose from. In addition, you can mix and match knobs and pulls of various shapes and designs and still achieve a unified style in your kitchen.
If you want to replace the hardware on existing cabinetry, Top Knobs’ wide selection ensures that no matter what your design theme is or who performs the installation, you won’t have to worry about sizing.
One of the things I like most about this company is the time and energy they devote to satisfying your kitchen hardware needs and desires. In my experience, their company slogan, “We will have one that fits,” really lives up to its word.
Top Knobs has worked hard to conceptualize kitchen pulls, which is clear from this description of their ‘Serene Collection’ on the company site: “Available in 35 shapes in five series, the Serene Collection is the essence of refined style. Each series of elegant, transitional shapes is the ultimate accessory to a kitchen designer’s vision.”
When I work with a homeowner on projects contain hardware decisions, I suggest design lines that complement their style, vision, and budget – and there are many to choose from. If you are ready to discuss a design for your kitchen, contact me at Cassandra@pulosdesigns.com.
