If you’ve recently undergone or are considering undergoing a kitchen remodel, you have probably considered replacing many of the large design elements of the space. Whether your kitchen renovations were focused around a new hardwood floor, sleek new appliances, or a beautiful new countertop – you have obviously taken the kitchen’s most functional aspects into consideration. Although it’s easy to overlook – your kitchen has a lot of opportunity to add interesting detail to the space. Cabinet hardware is the perfect example of this. Although most homeowners would be focused on replacing the cabinets themselves, without coordinated knobs and pulls to match, these new cabinets will not have nearly as much of an impact as they could. Kitchen cabinets are an absolutely vital part of any kitchen. Whether you’re replacing them or not, it’s important not to let them get lost in the shuffle. Being a major focal point in the room, they are an element that absolutely everyone who enters your kitchen will notice.
Even if you have hired outside help to install the large elements of your kitchen remodel project (such as kitchen cabinets), adding smaller decorative pieces after the heavy duty work is complete is the perfect project for any homeowner. Replacing cabinet hardware is an excellent do it yourself project and doesn’t require a lot of skill or knowledge in the home renovations department. Not only does this project require very few tools, set up and clean up is a breeze. If you’re looking to get into more do it yourself type projects, this would be the perfect task to take on in order to test the waters. Kitchen renovations can often seem scary, but when it comes to adding details to the space in order to pull your whole design together, any homeowner is completely capable of doing this.
A home makeover can be greatly enhanced by concentrating not only on the large elements of the room, but also the smaller aspects. Without these coordinated details, homes can lack the “pulled together” and synchronized feeling that we all desire to have in our homes. Cabinet hardware is an often overlooked, but perfect example of a way you can put the finishing touches on a brand new room. In rooms like the kitchen, with so much space available, attention to detail is absolutely necessary. If you have a large, black and white kitchen, adding decorative pieces into the finished room may seem quite difficult. Not only is it hard to perfect places in the kitchen for ornamental items, finding something to match your décor is the half the battle. With cabinet hardware, you can instantly add a decorative element, a pop of color, and an interesting detail to the room all in one step. By adding red knobs and pulls to your kitchen cabinets, you have made this three step change, all in one simple modification.
Regardless of what elements you are going to be replacing in your kitchen, don’t let the cabinet hardware get lost in the process. A kitchen remodel is just that, a remodeling of your current space. If you do decide to get new cabinetry, don’t ignore the knobs and pulls. If you’re looking to add a decorative aspect, a pop of color, or you just need some added detail in the room – cabinet hardware is the perfect way to accomplish these tasks. There is nothing better when a home makeover project offers the opportunity to forgo expensive labor and allow the endeavor to become do it yourself. Not only are you accomplishing the task yourself, you’re making a worthwhile and exciting change to your home. So during your kitchen renovations, remember to take every design aspect – even the smallest ones – into consideration.
