Upgrading Cabinet & Door Hardware

Are you starting to get a little bored when you walk into your kitchen? Or perhaps the doors in your home are all starting to look like they could use a little pick-me-up? Many people experience this feeling, but write it off because they can’t afford brand new cabinets or doors. But you might be surprised at just how much of a difference upgrading your cabinet and door hardware can make.


Brand new cabinet hardware can help give your cabinets an entirely new look. The same can be said for door hardware. For both, it doesn’t just mean switching out the handles or knobs, but it can also mean getting new hinges as well. If you have hinges people can see, then why wouldn’t you want them to neatly match with your doorknob?


There are dozens of choices out there for both cabinets and doors. Cabinets give you the chance to be colorful, edgy, traditional, and much more. What do you want your kitchen to say? Make sure that you choose a knob or handle that is easy to grasp and pull when opening up cabinets. Form and function should go hand in hand so you get exactly what you want.


When it comes to doors, you will also have the chance to choose between knobs or handles, though there is less overall variety. However, that doesn’t mean you won’t have a lot of beautiful choices before you. Metals, in particular, are always going to be different and allow you to pick something that matches well with your home or that makes a statement. From brushed bronze to steely nickel, you can pick out the handle as well as the hinges so everything comes together perfectly. Do you want all the doors in your home to match up, or does every house deserve a different handle? It’s up to you.


Upgrading is an excellent decision if you have lived in your home a long time and are looking for something simple yet effective for change. Or perhaps you have recently moved into the home and aren’t fond of the current cabinet or door hardware and need something better. Upgrading is also a great idea if you are looking to sell your home and want to entice buyers just a little bit more. They’ll notice the shiny newness of cabinet and door hardware. Who knows? Perhaps that will be the final thing they see that makes up their mind to buy the house!
