Remodeling your kitchen is a big investment, and to get the most out of the deal, you need to be very careful about the cabinet accessories you choose. This is because hardware provides the finishing touch to cabinets by highlighting their aesthetic value. Kitchen cabinet hardware includes drawer knobs, hinges and slides.
Knob placement on cabinets requires serious thought because misplaced positioning can spoil the effect of the cabinet. So you need to check if the knob should be in the center or on the side of the cabinet.
Decide if you want an antique, contemporary, or modern look for your kitchen cabinets. The market is awash with knobs for all tastes and you can choose between classic bronze designs, futuristic aluminum pieces or modern glass, stone or mosaic ones.
You have the option to choose between individual magnetic touch latches. They are usually made of plastic with a steel backing plate. The magnets in them keep the cabinet doors tightly closed preventing the entry of cockroaches and other insects. These latches come in a variety of colors and finishes, and you can choose from a brass finish to polished aluminum or an ivory touch drawer latch.
Take a look at the market and you will come across the unique and elegantly designed lighting that serves as accessories for kitchen hardware. You can choose from the halogen spotlight to the spectacular slim lights. Whether it’s a low-profile compact fixture or a surface-mounted spotlight or even fluorescent plugs, you’ll find that these art pieces come in both premium and affordable forms to fit every budget.
Depending on whether your kitchen cabinets are framed or frameless, you can choose from a wide variety of slides and runners. There are runners that have front and rear brackets that attach to the side or bottom of a cabinet. Alternatively, you can opt for integral front brackets for frame mounting.
You can customize your kitchen cabinets by adding accessories like silverware trays, pantry shelves, and garbage disposals. Their beauty lies in their usefulness because they make work more organized and easier.
