Refreshing your cabinet hardware or adding hardware to furniture is an easy project that can give spaces a whole new look and enhance the aesthetic of your home.

A relatively easy and budget-friendly home update, adding hardware shouldn’t be just an afterthought. Hardware is like jewelry for your home—it speaks to your aesthetic and can complete the look of your space. It’s also an important design detail that can help define your lighting, furniture, and decor choices. Choosing new hardware is a decision made even more exciting by the variety of styles, sizes, and finishes available. Whether you’re wrapping up a remodel with new door sets or swapping existing kitchen cabinet hardware, in this guide, we’ll walk you through some ways hardware updates that can add beauty—and function—throughout your entire home.

Just like fine jewelry, the material your hardware is made from matters. Our hardware is crafted from solid brass because it provides a quality and weight you can feel. Plus, it’s rust-resistant, doesn’t chip, and is compatible with both lacquered and unlacquered finishes.

From drawer pulls and faucets to wall hooks and address numbers, we have a wide range of styles and finishes to mix or match throughout your home.

Your Project: Quick Kitchen Refresh

From meal prep to hosting, your kitchen is one of the hardest-working rooms in your home. But that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style for function. Here are a couple ways to give your kitchen an easy update that adds both:

Refresh Your Cabinet Hardware:  
If you’re looking for a quick weekend project, updating your cabinet hardware can give your space a whole new look.

Even simple pieces like rail organizers can contribute to the look and feel of your kitchen.

Project Tip: Choose knobs and pulls in proportion to your cabinet size and consider mixing and matching them based on the style of your kitchen and the function of your cabinets and drawers.

Add Appliance Pulls:
For larger cabinets or ones that conceal built-in appliances, an oversized appliance pull makes a bold, visual statement. An elegant play on vintage plumbing and pipe fittings, our Hassalo Appliance Pull adds an industrial-inspired look to modern or traditional kitchens. For a more classic look, you can’t go wrong with our Mission Hardware Collection—which highlights authentic, Arts & Crafts-era elements with its simple lines and geometry. A number of our collections, like our Blair Collection, feature lighting, plumbing, and hardware to match for a more cohesive look.

The Blair Widespread Faucet and Drawer Pulls create a sleek and cohesive look throughout.

Project Tip: While matching finishes in your kitchen creates a cohesive look, another way to add visual interest and longevity is by mixing finishes. To do this, choose a statement finish for a foundational piece, like the pendants over your kitchen island, and add a contrasting finish with smaller elements—for example, cabinet hardware, shelving, or rail systems.

Style Tip: Try our Aged Brass finish to highlight black or dark navy kitchen cabinetry. For all-white cabinetry, Oil-Rubbed Bronze finish can add a contrast.

Mixing finishes can be pleasing to the eye when done right. Think of your finishes as paint—choose a primary color and supplement with contrasting tones.

Your Project: Elevate Your Bath

Whether you’re wrapping up a remodel of your primary bath or just want to refresh your powder room, hardware is a great way to dress up your space. From hooks and shelving to the perfect plumbing pieces, here’s a few ways to make this room feel and look beautiful.

Upgrade Your Plumbing:
From shower sets to sink faucets, plumbing is an important piece of any bath—and it can be glamorous, too. Designed for long-lasting functionality, our pressure balanced and thermostatic shower sets come in an array of distinctive designs—from clean-lined contemporary designs to more traditional styles with nautical undertones.

Solid brass construction makes our faucet sets long-lasting with a quality you can feel.

Add Towel Bars & Rings:
Depending on the size of your bath, towel bars and rings are needed and look good in multiples. Our bath collections are designed to coordinate with our lighting and plumbing collections so every detail can match the overall aesthetic of your space.

Style Tip: Your powder room is the perfect place to add personality with hardware. Opt for a vintage vanity mirror accented by hardware of a different finish.

Vanities are the perfect place to showcase your hardware and get creative.

Your Project: Create a Cohesive Entry—or Mudroom

Your entry and mudroom set the tone of your home—organizing you and your family as you come and go. Organize these transitional spaces with functional details that make a big difference—and leave a lasting visual impression.

Exposed plumbing is not to be overlooked—coordinate it with your faucet and other finshes throughout your space.

Elevate Your Door Sets:
Interior and exterior door sets are both decorative and highly functional—they also provide a layer of privacy and security for your home. Our solid brass hardware features a sturdy hand-feel and enduring quality that will last for years to come. Updating your door sets is also a great opportunity to enhance the stylistic era of your home—from modern new builds to more traditional Queen Anne-style homes. When upgrading your interior door sets, don’t forget to determine if you need a tube latch design or have older doors that require a mortise set.

Project tip: Add authenticity to your remodel by updating your door sets with period-appropriate styles that match the era of your home.

Add Hooks & Hook Racks
Hooks and hook racks are perfect for keeping hats, coats, and bags organized. Our selection comes in an array of designs—from single metal and swivel hooks available in several finishes to beautiful solid wood hook racks.

Project Tip:  
A vintage sideboard or storage cabinet is a great way to keep daily essentials organized and out of sight. And one way to refresh vintage furniture is with new period-authentic cabinet hardware. Or, choose to make a statement and add an eclectic touch with hardware from a different era.

Add personality to your entryway with our set of Animal Cast Brass Hooks.

Style Tip: Create a visual connection from indoors to out by choosing hardware in matching styles and finishes.
