Your kitchen hardware is almost as important as the style and wood you choose for your cabinets. Hardware can be visible, like handles, knobs, drawer pulls and sometimes hinges, or it can be hidden, like drawer mechanisms and cool innovations that help you maximize the efficiency of your drawers and cabinets.
We work with three excellent hardware & accessory sources – Hettich, Richelieu, and Marathon – which gives us some flexibility in pricing options as well as an almost infinite number of ways to make your kitchen more attractive…and more functional.
All of our quotes include high-quality soft-close drawer slides and soft-closing door hinges. What does that mean? It means that with a gentle touch, all our doors and drawers close on their own.
Here’s where the rubber hits the road when it comes to kitchen customization. Each of our hardware manufacturers has a huge range of options that will make your kitchen more efficient. From special rollout pantries and corner cabinet solutions to under-sink garbage and recycling containers to drawer and cabinet dividers, you can really have fun selecting hardware that will make your kitchen work just the way you want it to. Here’s just a small selection of ideas:
One of the smartest accessories you can add to your kitchen. These allow easy access to everything you have stored in your lower cabinets, from spices and canned goods to pans. You can even put in a pullout hanging pot rack.
Make the most of that spot under the sink – one of the hardest to reach places in a kitchen. Your cleaning supplies come to you. These are handy in the bathroom, too.
Fly Moon This ingenious corner cabinet solution is like a lazy Susan that comes to you. Use all the space in your corner cabinet with one of these.
Keep your waste and recycling bins tucked away neatly inside a base cabinet with easy pullout access.
Divide your utensils with a solid wood cutlery insert. Add a knife block, spice organizer, or cutting block to your top drawer. Even the “everything” drawer can be organized. See more drawer configurations.
Make your pantry more efficient and accessible by installing a swing-door pantry or a straight-open, full-extending one.
We have an extensive sample selection of knobs, handles and drawer pulls in our showroom. We can advise you on what styles work best with your kitchen design, and even where the optimal placement is for each pull or handle.
Unlike many cabinetmakers, we include standard door and drawer pulls in our pricing.
Depending on your vision, and budget, there is an almost infinite number of styles and finishes to choose from. For example, Richelieu Hardware offers hundreds of hardware options in at least five broad categories: contemporary, traditional, transitional, functional, and eclectic. Then you need to consider your finish – there are about a dozen colour groups to work with here. Simple polished chrome, matte black, and brushed satin nickel are just the beginning.
If all this sounds daunting, it can be – but it can also be a lot of fun. It’s all about personal touch. You can express your creativity and really put your stamp on your kitchen in the process. We’ll help you stay on track and within your budget.
