Kitchen Hardware

Updating kitchen cupboard hardware is one of those things that people don’t think to do because one, it seems expensive and two there is always something else that takes precedence.  I knew it would be a dramatic difference but I kept putting it off because of cost and I couldn’t commit to a style.    After looking at kitchen pulls and knobs for months, I kept coming back to a few kitchen photos I had in my pinterest account starting with this one:

I love this hardware…so simple and industrial looking.  I also love how they chose not to put any knobs on the lower cabinets and went with all pulls.

 I love them in polished nickel, too.


So with those three images stuck in my head, I was on the search for something similar, if not exact.  Here’s where I landed…..the Duluth pulls from Restoration Hardware.

The Duluth Knobs were a little too modern for me (hard to believe, right?) so I went with the Lugarno instead.

Not sure if you can tell how ‘cheap’ looking my kitchen hardware was in this before photo.  I think I was so excited to get rid of those pulls and knobs that I didn’t slow down to take a close up photo.

Now I really need to replace the countertop and see if that makes me like my cabinets or do I pull the trigger and paint white?  I’ve only been debating this for four years now!
