Same Hardware-Three Ways

Selecting hardware for your cabinetry can be an overwhelming task.  There are so many styles, shapes and sizes to consider.  However, once you have selected that perfect piece and determined the correct size there is one more key decision that needs to be made. Which finish is going to look best?

Should the finish match the stainless appliances or the faucet?  Maybe they should coordinate with other metal finishes in the room.  What is the overall look that you are going for, classic, transitional, or more modern?  These are all things to take into account when narrowing down the finish selection.

Today’s hardware manufacturers often have the same piece of hardware available in a variety of different finishes. The finish that you select can change the entire look of the piece.

Flat Black Lily Knobs from Top Knobs give a casual, transitional  feel to the Oak, Cashew cabinetry.


The same Lily Knobs in Oil Rubbed Bronze complement the warm tones of the Praline finish.

The Polished Nickel finish on the  Lily Knob creates a more formal fee when paired with the Poppy Seed finish.

Same knob, different finishes, which would you choose?
