Our homes are often a reflection of our lives.

But there's a quick fix for that. You can use our guide to clean your home in under an hour, employ these productivity hacks to make you win at your work life, and try our favorite decorative product swap to give your home a much-need face-lift. What's this genius little item we speak of? Home hardware, of course.
We're talking kitchen cabinet pulls, knobs, drawer handles, and hooks. This tiny swap is a guaranteed way to upgrade any tired space in an instant (and for little money). To discover some of the best options out there, we asked our interior designer friends to share their current favorites. From leather straps to Lucite handles, there's something for every taste and interior style.
Immy and Indi Leather Drawer Handle ($15)
"For most hardware, we shop at Liz's Antique Hardware in Los Angeles because they have beautiful new products along with a large inventory of antique hardware. We love using antique hardware (if it all matches) because we feel that it makes a project unique and gives it depth of character. This piece (from Turnstyle Designs) is reminiscent of old luggage and is a great way to warm up a space. We also love their door handles." — Dorianne Passman, co-founder, Thea Home
School House Electric Edgecliff Pull ($45)
"We source classic hardware from Schoolhouse Electric. The price point is friendly, and the quality is always reliable. We love the Edgecliff Pull in Matte Bronze for its simple clean lines and proportion. It comes in a three beautiful finishes, which make it an easy pick for any client." — Olivia Korenberg and Jenn Pablo, co-founders, TwoFold LA
Anthropologie Through the Wood Fox Knob ($20)
"Why wouldn't you use a cabinet knob shaped like a fox? There's so much seriousness in home design, and these little guys are impossible not to smile at. Use them on a vintage dresser in a kids' room or a guest bathroom vanity. Foxy!" — Max Humphrey, Portland-based interior designer
Rocky Mountain Hardware Kitchen Deck Mount Faucet With Straight Spout (price upon request)
"We love Rocky Mountain Hardware. Their designs are always unique, and we find that they work well in a range of homes. We love this particular faucet for the aged finish and the unique handles, which are decorative but don't feel kitschy." — Olivia Korenberg and Jenn Pablo
Anthropologie Checker Knob ($10)
"Perfectly mod and fun to use in a powder room. Black and white looks great mixed with pretty much any metal finish, so you can use these with abandon regardless of your faucet/plumbing situation. I've used these to spruce up a rental apartment with less-than-cute knobs, and the best part is you can take them with you when you move." — Max Humphrey
