Roundup // our favorite cabinet hardware under $7


Cabinet hardware has often been referred to as the 'jewel of the kitchen' and I couldn't agree more.  It's pretty, functional, shiny, and usually one of the most complimented details in a kitchen.  But it doesn't have to be expensive.  Cabinet hardware is one of the places we like to save money during a kitchen renovation.  In the 6 kitchens that Garrett and I have renovated, we've rarely spent more than $7 on a pull/knob/latch. Here's a look at five of my favorite classic and simple cabinet hardware options under $7.

Beautiful, right?!   I've used most of these options more than once, and will use them again.  Kitchens shown are: Ravenna, #6daykitchenreno, Bryant, and Ravenna.

The only piece I hesitated to include was the latch pulls (item 1).  I love LOVE the look of these classic pulls on flush mount cabinets, but we've had a couple break.  I'm not sure if it was because of faulty manufacturing or a certain toddler who made a game out of twisting them.  But we've found it useful to have a couple of extra latches to replace any that break.

Garrett and I were in Seattle recently and stopped by the #6daykitchenreno for a visit with our friends, and my goodness how lovely the space looks!  Julia added a Skyline rug (which is the same rug I'm using in the master bedroom and nursery at the farmhouse) and I couldn't stop staring at those brass pulls (item 2).  The pulls are gorgeous and will definitely be making a repeat appearance when I get my hands on another kitchen to renovate!

How about you, what's your favorite cabinet hardware?



p.s. Loved this article about building a home and NOT keeping up with the Jonses. That Kim has a good head on her shoulders!

p.p.s. Julia of Chris Loves Julia called me "seriously great" on her blog last week (!!!!). Did you see it?  She also posted a picture of our Dexter kitchen on her Instagram account.  She is such a great designer and blogger, I couldn't be more flattered!

p.p.p.s. This old house tour is soooo good!
