Kitchen cabinet hardware may seem like a small detail in the grand scheme of a kitchen renovation, but the hardware you choose helps set the tone for your kitchen’s style. In an instant, your kitchen can go from traditional to modern to funky with the change of your cabinet hardware. You want to choose hardware that is practical but also stylish and, in our opinion, timeless.
Bar pulls are not only hottest on the trend meter for 2018, they meet our standards for practicality and timeless design. They come in a variety of styles--from thin and smooth for a modern, sleek look to the intricate arts-and-crafts designs that add a funky, unique flair to any kitchen. Traditional styles remain popular in today’s kitchens, like this kitchen accessorized with traditional, matte black pulls.
Matte black has been a hot color trend in kitchens and baths for the last couple of years, and it doesn’t appear to be going anywhere. However, as we continue on into 2018, we’ll see more and more kitchens outfitted with hardware in warm metal tones--brushed gold will be particularly popular this year. As you can see in this two-toned, mid century modern kitchen, brushed gold pairs well with any shade--light or dark.
Satin finishes will also continue to gain momentum in 2018. Satin brass stands out against the dark cabinetry tones that are also dominating this year while satin nickel pairs well with classic white--a cabinet color mainstay that never quite disappears from our kitchens. Take a look at both of these trends in the images below.
Earlier in the article, we mentioned the growing two-tone trend that’s becoming more and more popular with today’s homeowners. While this trend is carrying over to cabinet hardware, we recommend sticking with one style. Trends come and go but seamless style never ends. After a while, mixed styles can appear busy and overwhelming to homeowners.
