Hardware for cabinets is like the jewelry we select to wear with our clothes. We can change our look by changing our jewelry. The same is true in the kitchen, and beautiful cabinet hardware can pull your entire kitchen together. Hardware for me is personal. You need to touch it and see it. What we think we like online might look totally different once it is in the space, and it may feel differently in our hands. You want the hardware to be comfortable to use every day. It is also a good idea to take a sample and place it alongside all the materials you selected or bring it home to see it in your kitchen lighting. Buy quality cabinet hardware. Lower quality knobs will not look or feel the same as higher quality knobs. Test this by holding one in each hand. It is immediately noticeable.

When we select hardware with our clients at the Kitchen Designs by Ken Kelly showroom, we usually talk about what we want it to look like and then tour our collection at the showroom. We place the hardware on the door samples and decide together on the style we like best to complete the look. Don’t be afraid of a little bling. One of my favorites from Top Knobs is the crystal TK125 knob.  It adds just a little glimmer to the space. It looks great to mix the cabinet hardware so all the cabinets in the kitchen are not the same. You can add your “bling” to a few select cabinets. You might want to mix a knob, handle, or cup pull once you decide which works best and is most comfortable for you. There are many options for finishes such as polished chrome, brushed nickel, antique brass, crystal, oil-rubbed bronze, or colored finishes.


Here are some of our favorites:
