Cabinet refacing is an inexpensive remodeling project that can bring a bold new look to your kitchen. Why not take this project a step further and add interesting kitchen cabinet hardware? For $1 to $10 per piece, you'll get a great payback on your remodeling investment.

Kitchen Cabinet Hardware Trends

There are many new styles of cabinet hardware, with sleek metal finishes taking the lead in many homes. Try to blend the hardware finish with your faucet or the stainless steel on your appliances. Some home owners use the same hardware throughout their kitchen cabinets, while others mix and match, putting fancy decorative hardware in key areas. A few hot finishes are:
  • Satin nickel
  • Brushed chrome
  • Aged copper
  • Wrought iron

Variety of Sizes and Shapes

Kitchen cabinet hardware is sold in more than 100 sizes and shapes, from cylindrical handles to round knobs with floral leaf patterns. As you plan your cabinet refacing, consider which style will best accent your cabinet door fronts and drawer frames. When adding a light wood front, for example, try black or brown hardware for contrast.

Hardware is a Good Remodeling Investment

Cabinet refacing is a fraction of the cost of replacing your kitchen cabinets. For an extra $50 to $150 you can add a sophisticated finishing touch with new hardware. Knobs and pulls start at $1 each, with the fancy finishes going for around $5 to $12 each. Even when buying for 15 to 20 cabinets, the remodeling investment will provide a good return.
