No doubt there are times you have looked upon your kitchen with disgust and thought, “How can I make this dump look better?” Short of spending five figures on a full kitchen remodel, there is an easy and relatively inexpensive way: new handles for kitchen cabinets and drawer pulls.
By installing new handles for kitchen cabinets you can transform your kitchen from as the shelter mags like to say “blah” to “hey, that’s nice!” No, your kitchen will not win any design awards just with the addition or substitution of new cabinet handles. But it is one of those kitchen remodeling projects that has a greater reward than the work put into it.
Why Do Cabinet Handles So Transform a Kitchen?
- Without getting into the science of it too much, let’s look at a few reasons why new or substituted handles for kitchen cabinets have such an impact:
- Hardware is prominent it physically sticks out more than any other feature of the kitchen cabinetry.
- Amazing, colorful, and detailed designs are possible in cabinet hardware aspects which would be overwhelming in other parts of the kitchen.
- You can use materials and finishes not found elsewhere in the kitchen: everything from shiny, mirror-like finishes to weathered bronze to cast-iron finishes.
