We have seen increased interest in contemporary cabinet hardware over the past year from our designers and customers. If looking to incorporate a modern or contemporary set of cabinet pulls and knobs into your home, you should consider Knob Deco’s complete set of contemporary finish offerings.

Stainless Steel

Historically, contemporary cabinet hardware has been most often associated with a stainless steel finish.  Stainless steel continues to be the most popular contemporary finish available.  When a brand is looking to push into the contemporary space, they typically start with stainless steel.  Stainless steel cabinet hardware has several advantages and benefits including long useful life in any climate, study construction and feel, and minimal finger prints.  

You’ll find a wide variety of stainless steel products from Knob Deco.  Check some of the great brands we carry that have a wide variety of stainless steel products including Schwinn, Hafele, Siro Designs, Linnea, Sugatsune, and more!

Polished Chrome
Polished chrome might be the new “it” cabinet hardware finish.  On our trip to KBIS 2013 in New Orleans, several brands talked to us about their new or upcoming polished chrome product offerings.  There is a lot of buzz around this finish type right now.  If you want to be an early adopter of polished chrome cabinet hardware, consider offerings from Top Knobs, Hafele, Classic Brass, or Jeffrey Alexander.

Carbon cabinet pulls and knobs have a very masculine feel to them.  The darkness on each piece will often vary depending on the light angle.  With all of the engineering advancements made through carbon technology, nothing says contemporary like carbon. They look a lot like stainless steel, but with even more story!
