Decorative Hardware Trends to Explore This Year

Decorative cabinet hardware plays a huge role in enhancing the overall design of a space. Whether for cabinets or furniture, selecting the right pulls or knobs (or both!) is often the most exciting part of the design process, as it's the final touch that brings the whole design together.


With so many styles and finishes to choose from, it often comes down to instinct, to choosing with your heart and finding your "coup de coeur," as the French would have it. 


We always have decorative hardware that never goes out of style. Explore the possibilities and be inspired.



Gold and Copper-Toned Pulls and Knobs Add Warmth and Richness

Classic cabinet hardware finishes such as chrome and brushed nickel will always be in style. In recent years, however, we have seen a surge in demand for warmer-toned metal finishes such as honey-bronze and caramel-bronze in addition to satin brasses, brushed golds, and polished coppers. These new finishes blend traditional elegance and contemporary sophistication, adding warmth and luxury to spaces featuring neutral or cool tones. 


These finishes work beautifully in a transitional kitchen with shaker or flat panel cabinet doors in hunter green and navy blue, which are also trending recently, as well as on white and gray cabinets. Designers are now weaving multiple metal finishes into a single space, making it easier than ever to explore this exciting new trend.

Matte Black Hardware is Both Timeless and Trending

Black has always been synonymous with elegance and sophistication. In fashion, furniture, and interior design alike, black transcends time, space, and trends. You can never go wrong with black, which is why matte black cabinet hardware is both classic and modern.


It contrasts beautifully with white cabinets or blends in with black or darker shades of cabinet for a tone-on-tone effect. Use it as an accent or anchor color throughout your design with subtle touches everywhere. With numerous models of items from faucets to light fixtures available in a matte black finish, integrating this timeless and on-trend finish is easier than ever.

Oversized Long and Linear Pulls

We are seeing more and more kitchen designs that favor drawers for base cabinets and overhead opening systems for upper cabinets. This creates long continuous lines that can make a space feel larger than it is. To emphasize these clean lines, designers are opting for oversized long and linear pulls centered at the top of each cabinet door and drawer, creating a streamlined modern look.


Go a step further and get that seamless streamlined look across your cabinetry with Gola integrated cabinet profiles, featuring horizontal or vertical lines consistent with a minimalistic European aesthetic. Add LED strip lights to provide a stunning diffused lighting effect to your cabinetry: the perfect mix of functional ambient lighting and elegant style.
