Update the Look of your Kitchen with Novelty Kitchen Hardware

With so many kitchen fixtures, cabinets, appliances and accessories available, the options seem unlimited. Unfortunately, in most cases, the budget is not. Installing novelty kitchen hardware is an easy and affordable way to update the look of a kitchen without spending a fortune.

Do-it-Yourself Installation

Replacing old or outdated kitchen hardware is a wonderful way to refresh the look of a kitchen with relative simplicity. In most cases, cabinet hardware can be installed directly by the homeowner, thereby saving money on the installation costs. Homeowners can replace knobs with pulls to create a sleek, refined look. When necessary, a backplate can cover the hole from the previous knob and create a chic, unique look. When replacing a knob or pull with another knob or pull, novelty kitchen hardware substitutes brilliantly for standard kitchen hardware.

Specialty Themed Hardware

From whimsical colored glass to luxurious antique bronze designs, novelty kitchen hardware provides a touch of personality and inspiration to any kitchen. Those who want to add a fanciful feel to their kitchen can consider underwater themed cabinet knobs. Homeowners who prefer cabinet pulls may want to consider utensil-shaped cabinet pulls; install a creative mix of spoon, fork and knife-shaped handles to add a lighthearted look to any space.

Dramatic Effects

Unique cabinet hardware also adds sophistication and elegance to a kitchen. Match stainless steel hardware to stainless steel kitchen fixtures for a majestic and unified look, or introduce chic kitchen hardware in a different finish to bring a new design element to the room. Create a dramatic look by choosing a matte black steel or shiny brushed nickel black finish. Lighten up the existing decor by installing white cabinet hardware embellished with fine detailing that will really stand out.

Finally, when selecting novelty cabinet hardware, it is important to consider comfort as well as style. Make sure to choose a design that will be comfortable to use. Ask yourself whether the knob is large and even enough to enable a firm grasp, or whether the pull is smooth enough to fit securely in your hand. Lastly, when replacing old cabinet handles with new ones, make sure that the new drill centers are the same, so that you can install the handles into the existing holes. With so many styles, colors and finishes from which to choose, you will surely find fabulous novelty kitchen hardware to transform your kitchen from outdated to state-of-the-art.
