Cabinet Hardware Guide: Our 3 Favourite Finishes

 |  Furniture Tips

Cabinet hardware finishes offer distinctive interior design accents to your home. Cabinet handles also reduce the risk of smudges and grime that can build up, keeping your cabinets looking immaculate.

Experimenting with different cabinet hardware finishes is a great way to add a unique touch to your rooms. After all, cabinets are found all around most people’s homes in kitchens, bedrooms, and bathrooms. You might even have a display cabinet in your living room.

With so many design options, which one should you choose? We understand that coordinating cabinet door handles to other elements in the room can be a daunting task. Here is our guide to 3 of our favourite cabinet hardware finishes.

1. Polished Brass Cabinet Hardware

Polished brass is a golden tone with a high mirror shine, a perfect contrast with matte furnishings. Brass is a versatile finish that suits all types of home décor from contemporary to traditional. Another interesting quality of brass cabinet hardware is that it doesn’t contain iron, making it perfect for outside furnishings too. Our favourite polished cabinet hardware is the Brownsea Cup Handle.

2. Antique Brass Cabinet Door Handles

Antique brass cabinet hardware has a worn look which can be in its raw form or by way of chemical alteration. Antique brass, while still golden in tone, is a darker brown than its polished alternative. Try pairing our Victorian cupboard and cabinet knobs with earthy tones, for example, terracotta and beige.

3. Matte Black Cabinet Knobs

When it comes to cabinet hardware colours, simplicity is the way to go. Since 2018 Matte black cabinet hardware has quickly become one of the most popular finishes. Matte black has not only been regarded as a modern design staple but has been widely used in traditional styles too. After all, black never goes out of style. The matte black bell knob from Furnipart is perfect for a contemporary style, to give your kitchen cabinet hardware a sophisticated look.

Whatever your style, cabinet hardware creates the perfect finishing touch to your space. If you’re looking for more inspiration you can purchase cabinet hardware design guides on our website.
