Small changes can have a big impact on the design of a room. One of the biggest and most important rooms in all our homes is the kitchen. They say, “Kitchens and the master bath sell a home. While it may be more than a typical homeowner can take on to revamp an entire kitchen or bathroom, small changes can make a big design difference. That difference can be as simple as changing the cabinet hardware in these very important spaces. Amerock hardware has been providing these functional and decorative elements for decades. At a time when so much manufacturing happens outside the United States, Amerock has manufactured kitchen and bath hardware in the United States since 1929. These experts provide the design world with both functional and decorative hardware for cabinets and furniture. Amerock hardware comes in styles that have reflected and defined design trends now into the 21st century.
Memorable homes evoke a particular style. Adding Amerock hardware to kitchen and bathroom cabinets and drawers provides a way to weave your design idea through to the smallest detail. In a traditional home, a shabby chic décor would be enhanced when you add a ceramic knob with a floral motif to a simple pine cabinet. A hammered metal knob in a restored New England Colonial kitchen would evoke the days of blacksmiths that may have practiced their trade in that very spot. And a simple wooden knob can be a tiny canvas to a budding Van Gogh who is given the challenge to decorate the pulls for a refinished storage cabinet to be used in a playroom. Sleek modern styles are reinforced with the choice of a solid oval knob in polished chrome or a simple bar in brushed nickel. Knobs and pulls with a sleek line and a short stem provide a low profile and lay close to the cabinet; this visually provides a clean look for the cabinets and furniture they enhance. Geometric shapes such as cylinders, cubes, spheres, and arcs, with their clean lines and lack of adornment, suggest futuristic design. And we can talk about serious design ideas, but there’s often a place for humor and whimsy in a contemporary design. If you visit a kitchen and see a spoon-shaped drawer pull, you shouldn’t have any trouble figuring out how to stir your coffee. Amerock hardware provides so many options for any approach you take about outfitting your kitchen or bath.
With the variety of options that Amerock hardware provides, you can play against an established design idea by picking cabinet and furniture hardware that coordinates with, but not exactly matches, with the lines and finishes you already have. Making a choice like this inspires a transitional design in your home, the happy marriage of traditional design with a contemporary flavor. Embracing transitional design places a primary design on center stage without making your home a period piece, a museum exhibit to a particular decade. By creating a transitional environment, your home shows that you embrace the best of the past, present, and cutting-edge design trends. Adding knobs and pulls makes it easier to access the inside of the cabinet and protects the finish, which can wear off and fade with repeated handling. In addition to cabinet decorative hardware, Amerock manufactures hardware essentials: hinges, catches and latches, shelf supports, and drawer slides. You can also accessorize your bath with towel bars, towel rings, wall and over-the-door hooks, and a generous selection of tissue holders.
