When designing a kitchen, refurbishing some vintage furniture, or updating a bathroom, you will inevitably get to the point of having to choose the perfect cabinet hardware for your project. Well, we hate to be the bearer of bad news, but selecting cabinet hardware isn't as easy as you might think. Just like that, the seemingly simple task of choosing the cabinet hardware becomes complicated and confusing, and even overwhelming. To make it a bit easier to digest, we have taken our most popular cabinet hardware finishes and broken them down into four subgroups:

Black is a foundational color used in interior design for balance, contrast, or to add depth to a space. Some have exciting and descriptive names like; midnight oil, magical black, wild onyx, or ebony king.

Matte black cabinet hardware has a warm, luxurious richness that elevates design styles;. All shades of wood , from light ash to dark walnut, can easily handle the look of black cabinet hardware. Whether you are going for the colorful SMEG line of fridges and ovens, or channeling your inner chef with stainless steel, or staying traditional with white appliances - black cabinet handles are the safest bet! Like other finishes, black cabinet hardware comes in a variety of shapes and styles, and as we can agree that the universality of black compliments pretty much any home style from modern to farmhouse, shabby chic to industrial, minimalist to country-chic, craftsman to Mediterranean or Scandinavian to eclectic - black cabinet hardware is an easy go-to choice and strikes a compelling overall look. Ageless, classic, chic, dramatic, stunning, elegant, striking - by any word - cabinet hardware in the black finish is a forever favorite of ours. The deep dark tones of black also have an undercurrent of a silvery nickel tint, making for a slate black-like appearance.

And with the unique combination of black, with its silvery nuances and high gloss, it packs a huge dramatic punch, especially on furniture! So, go for the drama and pair black nickel drawer pulls with some super dramatic colors like flame yellow, fire red, or shocking magenta.

The contrast of these deep paint colors with black nickel cabinet pulls is pretty wild - oh, and did we mention gorgeous?

Once considered dull and drab, beige is making a roaring comeback in home design. Millennials, in particular, seem to love the palliative, calming taupe tones and that coastal California chic look. Pale and soft colors like dusty rose, sea foam minty green or a pretty peach complement the shine of the black nickel knobs and pulls and look gorgeous on bathroom vanities.

The l ighter woods like ash and white pine look updated and modern with black nickel cabinet knobs and pulls. The appliances tend to have a bit of a shine or gloss, which coordinates with the brilliance of the black nickel knobs and pulls.

Once feared by many designers and homeowners, dark colors such as graphite are becoming a popular finish in home decor. Not quite black, not really grey, and not entirely black-green, it turns out that graphite color is hard to capture with words.

Let's give it a whirl: Our graphite cabinet hardware has a muted, deep gunmetal-grey hue that pulls dark, black, and grey undertones while mixing various shades of greens and browns in both its undertones and accents. Graphite color in home decor has this unique and delightful ability to be calming and warm or dramatic and bold.

But when paired with jewel hues of ruby or sapphire, the same hardware strikes a bold contrasting look. But, we find that the graphite cabinet hardware blends perfectly with all wood finishes - from the light a creamy yellow Aspen to a rich dark Brazilian Ebony.

Painted furniture or cabinets in dusky grey, black coral, or taupe-y silver all look fabulous with the graphite knobs or pulls.

Think of a black sink, with a satin nickel faucet or brass or copper or any other metal finish - and graphite cabinet hardware will easily compliment the fixture. But that is okay because our graphite cabinet hardware looks really good with whites, beiges, blacks, and gray appliances. When we say graphite cabinet hardware, it conjures images of a design of industrial-style city lofts and cold spaces.

We see the graphite in homes with neutral tones like modern and contemporary, but also in more dramatic design arenas like Bohemian and Art Deco. The graphite finish is just as complimentary to transitional settings to modern farmhouses and country chic. Black hardware in any of its form, is a beautiful classic look and easily blends into so many different design arenas.

We certainly hope that this four-part guide about cabinet hardware finishes was helpful in choosing the right color of knob and pull for your project.

We are a small family business and we love talking about cabinet hardware and helping our customers find the perfect product for their home.
