Furniture Hardware – The Jewelry of a 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 kitchen 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.

Lisa’s help on our major kitchen/family room renovation was invaluable. She is one very smart woman, with wide ranging talent and ability in all aspects of interior design, from architectural design of the space to designing lighting plans. Most importantly for us, she improved our architect’s design by seeing the space in a fresh and creative way that numerous other contractors and architects had missed – this gave us additional kitchen space and a more open flowing design. Another example of Lisa’s out-of-the-box thinking was her idea to hide my desk in a cabinet, rather than have an actual desk occupy space in the room. Even my hard-to-please engineer husband was truly impressed (especially since he also missed these ideas!) I am so happy that I used Lisa from the beginning of this project, rather than just for the actual color/furniture/coordination selection process. … and I am so happy that I also had her help for this part too. I love how she helped me: cheerfully and patiently guiding me, offering me lots of choices, explaining her advice, being always practical about her choices and with my money, and, of course, most importantly, leaving me with two really beautiful rooms that our entire family loves and enjoys. I have heard many people complain about their huge projects – but I think if you choose the right people to help you, the process can be a pleasure. Lisa made this true for us, so I give her my highest recommendation. Thank you, Lisa!
