There are so many different types and styles of cabinet hardware out there that you are sure to find something to meet your needs. The real challenge lies in determining which one is best for you and your needs amongst the many types that are out there. Some research will help you to make this decision more easily. Cabinet hardware can be anything from traditional and simple to ornate and highly detailed. While the style itself does not matter so much. what is important is making sure that the hardware you choose matches the type of cabinets that you have. What may seem like a small detail can actually be a very important piece to the overall look of the design of the cabinets.
A minimalist kitchen design without cabinet hardware will in the most cases. only work for apartment where people don`t live for a long time. This is the case of serviced apartments and so is the case of vacation homes. However. due to the causes cited above. you should mostly avoid it. It looks good on a catalog page or design picture. but not in a kitchen full of life.
Every astonishing design needs different elements to be effective. Design is not only a matter of talent. nor is it a magical ability that only a few possess. A design of quality will always depict equivalent elements. One of those is the base of the design. the other is the detail. The base of your design is in this case the cabinet itself. It is a base which occupies the bigger part at sight. However. if you only see a big surface. if produces a boring effect. A way of giving literally more color to your design is to put an accent on it. This is the part where the cabinet hardware comes in.
When installing cabinet hardware on new cabinets I would suggest purchasing a template to help you locate the screw holes on your cabinet doors and drawers. Templates can be ordered online from most sites that sell cabinet hardware. The template will help you mark your cabinets before drilling screw holes. Before you measure use masking tape so you can mark the cabinets with a pencil. The tape will also protect the finish of the cabinets.Drill holes using a drill bit that is 1/16 of an inch larger than the diameter of your screws. Take your time when drilling holes. Do not push to hard or you could damage the cabinets when the drill bit comes out the back side of your door or drawer.
