There are quite a few options for kitchen designs when you are either purchasing a new home or just re-doing your kitchen. There are so many beautiful and different ways to decorate your kitchen. One way in which we design your kitchen is to choose the style of a transitional kitchen. With so many things to focus on, you should keep in mind all of the little details you will need to add for that personal touch in the kitchen. One thing you will want to decide on is kitchen cabinet hardware and with so many options to choose from, Busby Cabinets specialists can help guide you to the right choice that adds your own flair to the kitchen yet fits within the style.
Tips For Choosing Transitional Kitchen Cabinet Handles
Streamline Moderne- These handles are inspired by high-speed rails and ships from the art deco era. When you hear about these handles you will think curved, slender, and horizontal. They are natural for modern cabinets and are usually made of stainless steel which is great for dark stained wood.
Bar Pulls- They are sturdy and glamorous while complimenting multiple styles of kitchens. They are linear flat bars that do not only give an undertone to contemporary design but the oversize pulls are very convenient.
Bin Pulls- They are an upside down cup-shaped pull which became popular in the mid 19th century. They give your kitchen a simplistic, vintage feel. Bin pulls come in a variety of different finishes.
Window Sash Pulls- They are based on window sash fittings designed to lift heavy windows. They give your home the “no place like home” feeling and accentuate comfort foods and home cooking.
Back Plates- They are knobs with a back piece that lies flat against the door. Depending on the finishes you use, it will give your kitchen a more Mediterranean feel and just keep in mind, you should expect to pay more for knobs with backplates as opposed to just the knobs themselves but it is worth it!
Drop Handles- This is a two piece handle set with a mounted portion and a dangling pull. This will make your built-ins look more like furniture.
Glass Knobs- These are pretty inexpensive and this kitchen cabinet hardware gives your cabinets a more flashy feel. They are usually small and shaped like an octagon.
Recessed Pulls- These are streamline pulls that are built into the door facings. Not too many people have this look in their kitchen so it is definitely something different.
Which Type of Knob Is Ideal For Transitional Designs?
While the option mentioned above is great, you want to choose a handle that is more sleek and contemporary. Stainless steel handles that are simplistic and do not distract are the go-to choice for many designers. On the other hand, if your kitchen cabinetry is contemporary, you may want to select a more traditional style knob to create a bit more warmth in the overall design. This is why it is so important for your Busby Designer to consult with you.
