Boho Style: How to choose the right hardware?
Bohemian or boho style is a rule-breaking, personal, and unconventional style of decorating a living space. The bohemian style mirrors that life by combining objects, colors, and patterns from many world areas. While there are no rules for bohemian decorating, warm earthy colors are standard, as are metallics and jewel tones. Think deep browns, greens, and grays for base colors, then accessorize with saturated purple, fiery orange, and electric blue. Combining and layering colors is what makes this style unique. So we've put together a simple "how-to" to help you choose the best cabinet hardware that matches the Boho design style.
No.1 Let's Choose A Finish.
The finish of your hardware should starkly contrast your cabinetry. Boho is anything but safe. Placing black on clean white or Gold on emerald green cabinets will provide a stark contrast. Bohemian style shows no fear. Mixing metals is also encouraged! Do not be shy to mix matte black handles with stainless steel fixtures.
No. 2 Let's Choose a Shape
Any shape will complement the Boho Style. However, to embrace the style, layering, and creating patterns by mixing knobs with handles is the authentic boho way. Add Knobs on lower cabinets and handles on Drawers and uppers. Or Do the total opposite of that. The placement isn't as important as the intent. You should also play with sizing as well. The Bohemian style glorifies imperfection and imbalance.
No. 3 Let's Add Your Personality
To be boho is all about you being uniquely you! Choose the handles that speak to you. Ignore all rules and structure and focus on what makes your heart happy. Bohemian style is designed to show personality, so show yours. Although it may be difficult, disregard your favorite influencers and bloggers and do what feels right for you.
