There is no question, you can have expensive cabinets and throw your money down the drain by applying ugly hardware. In order to avoid this, I suggest following a few simple rules:
1) Keep it simple! More complicated design or lines confuse the eye and unsettle the soul.
2) Think about the trend. Don’t go too trendy or it will date your home.
3) Remember the finish. Keep in mind what your faucet fixtures and light fixture finishes are and how they will blend with the cabinetry hardware.
In order to install cabinetry hardware, it is a commitment – holes get drilled into your new doors! I sell Hafele Hardware for clean and simple lines. So think about it carefully and with conviction. Here is an article to give a bit more advise.
