— design, kitchen accesories
I know I have talked about cabinet hardware as the jewelry of cabinetry, as I will keep talking about them because manufacturers are continuously creating new styles. While the design of a knob or pull may take away from the design of cabinetry, it is also true that hardware can greatly add to the overall composition of a kitchen, bathroom or a single standing cabinet. One must know how and when to use an intricate knob versus a simple knob.
Here are some examples of “Cabinet Jewels”
Usually cabinet hardware is chosen after the space is designed, but sometimes it is the hardware that inspires designers. And when they are unique pieces such as these, a design can become very cohesive with its hardware- and that is goal when designing a kitchen.
