|This kitchen has hinges that show (instead of hidden hinges)|
This creates a sort of "old fashioned" style
|To assist the general contractor to know which pieces to attach|
in various rooms, we color coded the hardware selections as above.
For example, chrome with brass or bronze. As a rule of thumb, if it is appealing to the eye - yes!
Example, brushed stainless is fine with some bronze door knobs or light fixtures. Especially if you have a stainless faucet or stainless appliances.
|In this Greensboro kitchen, notice the variety in the way we|
added hardware. We turned the handles sideways on the lower drawers
which is more interesting than knobs.
We chose hidden hinges for these cabinets
If you are wondering how to upgrade or replace hardware that is a unique size (when it's impossible to find hardware that matches up to the same holes as your old hardware).....below are examples of handles with back plates. This often "hides" the problem.
NOTICE THE HANDLES ON THE DRAWERS ARE LONGER THAN THE UPPER DOORS!
It's all based on looks, there is no definite rule of thumb.
It makes it more interesting if you mix and match the sizes and shapes.
