When I was designing my kitchen last spring, there we certain things that were a must, one of those were cabinet latches, as well as brass hardware. This is something I briefly spoke about in my Instagram stories the other day but I thought it deserved a blog post. I feel very strongly about picking quality hardware for your kitchen (bathroom, mudroom etc)! I think that whether you are doing a full kitchen reno or just wanting to give your kitchen a refresh, I think hardware has the ability to make a huge impact!

Quality (and beautiful on trend) hardware can be expensive, but it’s something you don’t want to look back on with regret, especially in a kitchen. Kitchen hardware is something you use every day, multiple times a day. I really believe its the make or break of great design in a kitchen. I am all about saving money/hacks/dupes but when it comes to this, I don’t think I will ever buy lesser quality to save money in my kitchen.

When I was recently giving a little refresh to our bathroom, I tried to buy some cheaper pulls/knobs and Chris immediately knew they were poor quality – if he notices something like that, you will definitely notice.
Another thing that I will mention about this is that when you buy from good quality stores such as rejuvenation, all of their hardware is something you can easily mix and match because its their own product, so you’re guaranteed to be able to buy knobs, pulls, and latches, in the same colour, and have them match. Emtek is another great example of great quality cabinet hardware!
The hardware in my kitchen is unlacquered brass, which I know isn’t for everyone. It looks beautiful and shiny when you first buy it but it ages with time. The beauty of it though, is that you can easily polish it to make it look brand new again!
