Never before have clients paid so much attention to hardware, and manufacturers are following…
Hardware has two separate but equally important roles in design. On the functional side, hardware allows for efficient and accessible use of cabinet doors, drawers and storage solutions. On the decorative side, the perfect pulls and knobs can be the embellishments that pull a design together or make it pop.
Although hardware is often one of the more subtle design elements in a kitchen, it nevertheless plays a key role in the overall design and functionality of the space. Whether promoting greater accessibility and maximizing storage, adding a whimsical touch or tying the entire look of the kitchen together, the right hardware can make or break a kitchen design.
Though decorative and functional hardware may not top consumersâ€™ list of design considerations when remodeling the kitchen, it is a crucial element in the end product. Thatâ€™s because hardware provides both critical functionality and a touch of style that can dramatically enhance the look and feel of the space.
While hardware isnâ€™t necessarily the first thing a designer thinks about when beginning a kitchen or bath project, it is an integral component to the finished product, essential to the functionality of the space.
Hardware is also the finishing touch that unifies the space, according to manufacturers recently surveyed by KBDN.
