Decorative hardware is both functional and ornate, and the right selection can introduce understated design details that truly elevate a space. And, what’s great is that here are opportunities to feature these hardware elements in nearly every room of your home, from kitchen or bathroom cabinets to doors and windows.
Cabinet knobs and drawer pulls are some of the most popular decorative hardware elements available. These fun hardware accessories are a great way to change up the style of any cabinet, drawer, dresser or other piece of accent furniture, and are incredibly easy to switch out. Most can be installed or uninstalled with the simple twist of one or two screws; however, when replacing any existing hardware, be sure to note the spacing of the holes and purchase ones that will match if you don’t want to drill new holes and/or add a backplate.
Bathroom hardware consists of far more than just the knobs and pulls that go on the cabinets. Bathrooms have unique storage needs served by towel bars, robe hooks, toilet paper holders and in-counter soap dispensers. While these may not seem like particularly noteworthy additions as far as appearance is concerned, the right hardware can help create a clean appearance in a bathroom and give it a polished feel that makes a statement.
Door hardware also offers plenty of ways to add some character in unexpected places! A simple change of handle can alter the look of a door more than many might realize. There are fun door handle options like unique backplate shapes, unique metal finishes and knobs made from striking decorative materials such as glass or marble. When it comes to your front door in particular, there are also creative door knocker and doorbell button designs that will help you make a great first impression.
