Modern hardware styles come in simple geometric shapes with no extra detail or frill. Popular hardware finishes are matte black, satin nickel, chrome, and bronze. Because modern style hardware is uncomplicated, it is easy to mix sizes and finishes without looking chaotic.

Traditional hardware is both functional and decorative with intricate details, complex shapes, and rustic finishes. Coordinating sets are the best way to go when using traditional hardware, or if you’d like to mix styles, try pairing decorative knobs with modern cabinet pulls in the same finish.

A Few Unique Ideas
If you have a particular theme in mind for your bathroom but can’t find hardware that fits we have a few creative solutions:
- For a coastal /nautical theme try making your own rope pulls. This simple craft can transform a plain bathroom cabinet into a beach cottage treasure chest.
- To impart a more natural ambiance, why not try polished rocks, sea glass, or minerals as knobs for your cabinetry? They can look extraordinary and unique. Be aware of size and weight, however, and use appropriate strength glue for secure adhesion. Or, try using finish pieces of driftwood for a rural, earthy look. You can attach your earthy embellishments to a simple cabinet knob or a long pull with a flat surface.
- For a personalized touch, try fashioning your own knob design using air clay over your current hardware. You can paint your creative knobs in a fun or glitzy color of your choice.
- The current trend for copper may inspire you to use cut copper piping as drawer pulls. If you are skilled at cutting metal, polished copper pipe pulls can add a dash of industrial glam to your bathroom cabinets or towel bars
Switching out your existing hardware can take a little additional work if you are changing the length of your cabinet pull. If you are unable to use the existing holes from the original hardware, you will need to patch and paint over the old holes and use a drill to make space for new hardware. Here is a great tutorial from Better Homes & Gardens.
