If you want to revitalize the look of your kitchen or your bathroom, but aren't ready for a full-blown remodeling project, consider choosing new knobs for your cabinet doors and drawers. Choosing new cabinet knobs can be a quick and inexpensive way to inject new life into a room that's grown a bit dull.
A cabinet knob may seem like a small, insignificant detail, but multiply it by the number of doors and drawers in the room, and you're looking at what may turn into a design revolution. With new cabinet knobs, you can take a dated look and transform it into something on the cutting edge of decorative fashion, or you can make a creative personal statement by choosing unusual knobs that no other house in the neighborhood has.
Try looking at your cabinets with a fresh eye. Remove the existing knobs from one of the doors and one of the drawers, and consider the possibilities. Take into account the color of the cabinets, other colors present in the room's decor, and the overall color scheme of the house. Decide if you want your new knobs to contrast strongly with the cabinets, or blend in and harmonize.
Think about material and style when choosing your new cabinet knobs. Popular materials include ceramic, wood, metal, glass and plastic. When it comes to style, let personal preference direct your choice, keeping in mind what will look best with the cabinetry in place. Do you want a classic antique look or a sleek, modern line? Which is more your style, plain or fancy? If you want to add a bit of whimsy to the room, consider selecting one of the many novelty cabinet knob styles now available, in shapes like animals, fruits, vegetables, trees, vehicles and household objects.
When it comes to choosing new cabinet knobs, the possibilities are limited only by your imagination and your budget. Try replacing the hardware on your kitchen or bathroom cabinets, and see how easy it is to give the room a refreshing face-lift.
