Cabinet hardware might not be the first thing you think about when designing a room, but it's definitely an important element that shouldn't be overlooked. After all, it's the little details that can make a big difference in the overall look and feel of your space. Let's dive into the world of cabinet hardware and explore the different types of knobs, pulls, hinges, drawer slides, and backplates that can add style and functionality to your cabinets.
First up, we have knobs. These little rounded pieces are probably the most common type of cabinet hardware. They're easy to install and come in all sorts of materials and shapes. Whether you prefer the classic look of metal, the natural warmth of wood, or the elegance of glass, there's a knob out there for everyone.
Next, we have pulls, the most popular choice. They're similar to knobs, but longer and wider. Pulls can be attached to the center of cabinet doors or drawers, and can be used as a single piece or in pairs. They're a great choice if you want a little more grip when opening your cabinets, or if you just want to make a statement with your hardware.
Hinges might not be the most exciting type of hardware, but they're essential for keeping your cabinet doors attached to the frame. They come in different types, such as concealed, exposed, and European. Concealed hinges are great for a modern, streamlined look, while exposed hinges can add a decorative touch to a traditional or rustic design. European hinges are a type of concealed hinge that are commonly used in frameless cabinets. Our hinges are also soft-closing and adjustable.
Drawer slides are another important piece of hardware that allow your drawers to slide in and out of the cabinet smoothly. They come in different types, such as side mount, undermount, and center mount. Side mount slides are attached to the sides of the drawer and the cabinet frame, while undermount slides are attached to the bottom of the drawer and the cabinet frame. Center mount slides are attached to the center of the drawer and the cabinet frame, and are often used in antique or vintage cabinets. Beyond the slide location, there are also two types of slide, full extension and 7/8s extension. Our custom and stock lines come with the prior types respectively.
Finally, we have backplates. These are decorative pieces that can be attached to the back of your knobs or pulls. Backplates can add a decorative touch to simple hardware, and they can also protect your cabinets from scratches and damage.
So, there you have it! Knobs, pulls, hinges, drawer slides, and backplates are all common types of cabinet hardware that can add style and functionality to your cabinets. Don't be afraid to mix and match different types of hardware to create a unique look that reflects your personal style.
