Knobs and pulls and handles, oh my!

No matter what theme or style you have selected for your home, the right knobs and handles can literally pull everything together. Many people focus their energy on functional knobs and pulls, but those of the decorative sort are just as important. You can find these on furniture, on the wall, on doors and windows and as part of items such as mirrors or hooks.

If you have decorated your home in a country style, you may want to stay away from cabinet hardware made from stainless steel or overly shiny materials. Consider the worn textures in your major furniture and add the same type of accents to other items. For bath hardware in a country bathroom, consider bronze finishes and porcelain accents.

Antique furniture that does not have functional drawers is the perfect home for antique hardware. It may need a little more care, and yanking on it won't do it any good, but flea market finds can accent your cabinets and windows nicely. For hinges and locks that act as decoration only, consider brass hardware. It looks classy, and you don't have to worry about wear and tear if it is for decoration only. However, you should still shy away from cheap hardware – visitors will notice that it doesn't fit with your décor. Hardware antique hunting can be a challenge, but check out flea markets, garage sales, antique stores and consignment shops, and eventually you're sure to find something that suits your needs!

If you can't find what you are looking for or you don't have much time to look, consider seeking out a reproduction hardware company. These companies create new hardware with an antique look. If it's just the style you want, this can be a convenient, less time-consuming way to get it.

On the other hand, if your home has a more contemporary or modern feel to it, stainless steel hardware will be perfect for rooms where water can get splashed around, making it ideal bathroom hardware. It also makes good kitchen hardware, especially if you have stainless steel kitchen appliances .

Popular Pieces of Decorative Hardware:

Knobs

Knobs are perhaps the most common hardware choice for doors and drawers, and they come in many different sizes and styles. When nobody is going to be pulling on a knob, you can opt for style over functionality. This means that antique knobs can be chipped or weak. As long as nobody yanks on them, they will still look great! Glass knobs are very classy in appearance, and a glass knob on a piece of antique furniture adds sparkle without adding flash. You may also call your knobs pulls, but they can be used for so much more. Decorative knobs can act as hooks or can add interest to the corners of mirrors or large photo frames. Don't get stuck in the knob rut – use knobs anywhere you like!

Pulls

Although sometimes used in reference to knobs, the term "pull" actually encompasses a variety of hardware, found most commonly on drawers. While knobs are generally thought of as round and bul...
