You may have heard “hardware is the jewelry of the home” at some point in your home design process. These days, hardware companies are living up to that phrase with jewel-like options that will make your cabinets and doors sparkle. Don’t underestimate the impact that hardware can have! Whether you love a traditional look or prefer something more modern, you have a chance to make a real statement. If you’re going for a more contemporary feel, you may want to make bolder choices when it comes to your hardware. Several brands offer crystal, glass, and gem hardware for those who want to steer away from traditional cabinet or architectural hardware. You can go luxe with higher-end pieces that are made with real crystal or opt for less expensive hardware that gives you the same look.
