When it comes to designing a kitchen there are so (so!) many details to consider, which can often feel overwhelming (I hear you). And while you may have heard me preach that design is in the details time and again, there are most definitely one or two that I feel are more important than the rest. At the top of that list… Mixing and matching your cabinet hardware with a combination of pulls and knobs. The good news on this front is that it’s such an easy way to add instant impact and make a kitchen feel more thoughtfully designed and fully fleshed out. Whether you opt for knobs on all doors and pulls on all drawers, or vice versa, playing with both really adds that je ne sais quoi that simply can’t be topped.
Cabinet hardware, after all, is akin to the jewelry of a space. It instantly adds that little bit of sparkle that elevates just about everything, and is worthy of some thought. I fully stand behind the fact that a combination of cabinet pulls and cabinet knobs is a design must. And if you can sneak in a cabinet latch where it makes sense I give you instant bonus points because, hi, look how cute!
I’m sure you’ve heard me mention Emtek in the past (I’ve specified them at least somewhere on almost all of my projects – including my own home – I am such a mega fan). They’ve really and truly become my first stop when it comes to all things hardware. Not only are their products aesthetically beautiful all across the board, their quality is absolutely unparalleled – I’ve yet to have a single issue on any items I’ve specified in the past. And in light of my mom’s kitchen reno (in which we are obviously working with Emtek) I thought it might be helpful to showcase some of my favourite cabinet hardware combinations so that I can help you take the guesswork out of the whole ordeal. Following are a few Lark & Linen approved cabinet hardware combinations that I feel confident will bring instant beauty into your home.
