Although they’re small and often overlooked, hardware in any room can make a huge difference, especially if you are looking for an affordable change at little cost.
Let’s Talk Hardware
These accents may be small, but don’t underestimate the power that they have. They can completely transform not only a piece of furniture, but also an entire room’s decor. They can make any room look fresh and updated, changing it from old and drab to chic and modern. And the best part is, the installation is usually quick and easy!
Current Hardware Trends
As with all trends, they change from time to time. However, right now, the most popular hardware decor trends being seen are:
Lacquered or aged brass, such as antique brass handles.
Satin or antique finishes add sophistication and are less formal than polished.
Matte black hardware is becoming more popular and is excellent for modern kitchens or for adding dark contrast to an otherwise light and bright space.
Unlacquered iron such as Oil rubbed, polished, or brushed metals, along with matte metals, create an updated look on armoire and cabinets, including brushed bronze door knobs.
Cool dresser knobs can add a touch of personality to any dresser.
Mix or Match?
When deciding whether or not to stick with uniform knobs in a certain room or to mix and match on different pieces of furniture, take note of all the metals and hardware in the room, including your lamp bases. This way, you can decide if you want to match or mix things up for a more dramatic contrast.
Hardware can make the biggest impact of all elements in a space. With so many styles and finishes to choose from and so many available price points, there’s no reason not to update hardware regularly to give a room a fresh new look.
