Most Asked Questions About Home Hardware - Q&A Part 1

Handles are all we do, and we also provide weekly blogs to help you choose the perfect ones! We’ve mostly covered the most popular styles and guides to them so far; however, today, we would love to answer some of the most asked questions about hardware to provide better and more precise answers to your questions. Hardware is the jewelry of your home, and it can change the whole look, so you have every right to be thinking about your options long and hard! If you can’t find an answer to your question here, please feel free to drop us a message or arrange a FREE consultation!

Without further ado, let’s answer some of your questions!


How can I decide on the color or the finish?

Whenever our clients aren’t too sure about which color to go with, we always advise complementing the other metal accents in the room. For your kitchen, for example, you can choose gold hardware if you have gold pendants on your island, or perhaps select black handles if you have black appliances, just like our client did in the image below! It doesn’t always need to be the metal accents you could match. Of course, you can also look at your countertops or backsplash tiles. If there is any dominant color in any of the materials in the room, matching your hardware to those will create a balanced and aesthetically pleasing look!


I can’t decide between two options. What can I do?

Our first advice would be to get in touch with us and arrange a FREE consultation so we can provide more detailed and personalized help! But if you don’t have the time, don’t worry, we got you! We don’t want you to have any regrets in situations like these! What if you choose the golden hexagon knobs but can’t forget about our textured black handles no matter how good the knobs look? We know the struggle! So we recommend a mix and match throughout. For example, you can use one model/shape in the kitchen and the other in your bathrooms but still create coordination by choosing them in the same color or finish. It will still have a well-put-together look, and you will have it all. What a dream!


I don’t know which size to go for, how should I choose?

Size doesn’t really matter! It’s usually entirely up to you. But for ergonomic purposes, we recommend putting longer handles or bigger knobs on drawers that will be carrying heavyweight, but that’s about all when it comes to practical matters. Aesthetically, however, you can select the size according to your cabinet/drawer sizes. For example, on smaller cabinet doors, we love putting knobs or small handles to enhance the height by creating a visual illusion using the contrast between the sizes, and that’s exactly what we’ve done for our lovely client in the example below!


We hope that this little Q&A helps you choose the proper hardware for your home, although you should know that there is no right or wrong as long as you know what you want! But if you still need a hand, we are always here, and we have new hardware content all the time, so check us out on social media! @Kairos Cabinetry
