Our Picks for Seriously Hot Hardware
As they say, it's all about the details, which is why we're crazy about knobs, pulls, and levers. Swapping out hardware can transform a space, making a vanity appear to be a unique piece of furniture or adding a thoughtful detail to plain-front cabinetry. Think of it as jewellery for your kitchen, hallway, closet, or bath. Well-chosen drawer pulls and door knobs are the perfect complement to a room's larger pieces, and can make the whole space appear more pulled together and polished. If you're looking for pizzazz, we've shopped the pulls, knobs, and levers that have our hearts skipping a beat and are sharing a sampling of spaces that have us freshly inspired. Why let your door knobs be blah when they can make a statement? Give guests a hint of what lies on the other side by using a sophisticated lever or a simple knob with a show-stopping rosette. Statement makers on both dark paint and light hues, we love the personality and sophistication an unusual doorknob brings to any home.
No longer resigned to simple spheres or oval shapes, we're loving faceted, octagonal, and all-around sculptural knobs. Add some architectural interest to simple spaces or jazz up your jewel-box powder room with standout pieces that carry some heft.
Small, dainty pulls be damned. We're gravitating towards statement bars and chunky handles when shopping for new hardware. We love the sense of permanence these exaggerated details bring to drawer fronts and cabinets.
