Making Over Your Kitchen With Door Knob Hardware

July 29th, 2011

We all need a bit of change when it comes to our homes. We may be tired of a certain style or design and that becomes especially true when you’ve lived in the same place for a long period of time. But there is an easy way to give your kitchen a brand new look without installing brand new furniture or new appliances. You can install new door knob hardware to get a drastically different look.

First you need to make a list of various door knob hardware you are going to work on replacing. You’ll need to look into cabinet knobs, pulls, and hinges. They can all match or even be bought in slightly different styles, as long as the sizes fit right. So get creative, you don’t have to necessarily stick with a set but can buy like hardware that compliments each other.

Removing the ones you have now are usually simple. Most pulls are installed with a couple of screws in the back, so all you need is a screw driver. Many cabinet knobs are easy to remove by twisting counter clockwise (remember, righty tighty, lefty loosey) and removing. Hinges may require a little more work, but everything is pretty simple.

When choosing your new door knob hardware, there are a few different styles to choose from. Traditional are usually brass, nickel or pewter. They can come in various shades, from something lighter to darker depending on how you are matching it to the rest of the décor. They come with a brushed or polished finish. Many of these are etched with elaborate detail.

Modern style is usually high gloss, satin or stainless steel. They’ll have a simplistic look, which is what the modern theme is all about. These work great with kitchens that have a very slick, clean look and will match with just about everything.

For a colonial or country kitchen, wooden knobs are great. Handcrafted cabinet pulls will especially stand out among the rest of the items in your kitchen. Rustic style will lean more towards wrought iron.

The great thing about redecorating with door knob hardware is how cheap it is. You are going to save yourself costly time and money by redecorating on a small but important scale. You’ll be surprised at how different your kitchen looks just in replacing a few knobs and hinges, but it’ll be a nice change for the household.
