Installing new hardware on kitchen cabinets is the quickest and easiest way to update the look of your kitchen.
Black hardware on white cabinets is a classic look that will never go out of style. We used Venetian Bronze for our cabinet hardware and they look completely different on our white island that they do with our other stained wood cabinets.
As you can see they look black against the white of the cabinet. Continue reading to learn everything you need to know about installing cabinet hardware for a quick and easy update.
The style of hardware you choose is key to getting the look you want for your kitchen. This farmhouse kitchen looks light and airy with a curated homey feel that features vintage-style cup pulls on the drawers and latches for the doors.
The latches for the cabinet doors and bin pulls on the drawers transport you back in time.
Cup pulls sit perfectly on just about any type of drawer style. They look great sitting centered inside the shaker style of the drawer fronts and the simple black knobs are situated on the shaker trim of the cabinet doors in this gorgeous white kitchen with black hardware.
Don't forget the hinges! New cabinets have recessed hinges and you can't see them from the outside, but older style cabinets still may have the hinges on the outside, visible where you can see them.
Unless you're going to break the budget for all new cabinets, make sure to update the hinges to match your new black cabinet and drawer hardware. It could be as simple as spray painting them to match to keep it budget-friendly.
When using open shelving in the kitchen, consider black brackets for your shelves. Although they aren't cabinet hardware, they are still in the kitchen, and matching them to your cabinet hardware just makes sense.
These black shelf brackets cup the thickness of the shelf and look amazing in this kitchen with the cup pulls and round knobs.
