Hardware - The Jewelry of the Room

You’re getting dressed and you add big earrings and a chunky bracelet – that little detail takes your outfit to the next level. Similar to a bold necklace on a solid dress, hardware such as knobs and pulls are the pieces of jewelry on your furniture that add a pop of personality and style.

Whether you’re looking for a pop of glam or  a touch of rustic charm, don’t underestimate the impact that your “furniture jewelry” can have on your space. Lighting has the same effect in a room, but that is for another day’s post.

We love using hardware in a room to make an impact.  From this bold sunburst detail to small knobs introducing a bit of color, no detail is too small. One of the places to start when thinking about what will make the best impact is the finish.  Of course there are metal finishes like polished nickel, chrome, brass, gold, etc., but you can also choose from other materials that make for a unique pop.  Below you can see a leather pull we used in a playroom.  There is glass, wood, ceramic and so much more.

Beyond the color and finish, the scale of the hardware also makes an impact. Those leather pulls are huge which makes the pop of orange even more dramatic.  Or look at this bathroom where the cabinet drawer pulls cover the full width of the drawer.  

Think of this as the difference between an outfit that calls for a small gold chain with a little hanging diamond versus a large, bold, bib necklace.  

Don’t be afraid of using large hardware to make a big impact in the room.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed with selecting the right details to make an impact in your space, we would love to help.

This project was all about maximizing the gorgeous view. The blue and brown color palette feels like the lake view was brought inside. Custom walnut open shelves top a beautiful custom cabinet providing the perfect place for fun accessories continuing our water theme.
