When exploring kitchen cabinet hardware ideas, your first task should be to decide how closely aligned in terms of style you want your hardware and the cabinets themselves. For example, a traditional Shaker style cabinet can be complemented with simple, understated brushed metal hardware—or it can provide a blank canvas for all manner of creative approaches to door handles and drawer pulls. The choice is yours, and while it's true that sticking with a one-to-one approach with cabinets and hardware may save you time and simplify the design process, exploring other options may allow you to express more of your own design aesthetic in the kitchen.

Some kitchen designs are beginning to display personality through eclectic and artistic approaches to kitchen hardware. Recent trends include nautical-themed rope drawer pulls and door handles, painted designs, numerals, insignias or monograms on drawer pulls. And pulls and handles made from antique buttons, glass or crystal will create a truly unique look that's sure to catch the eye and spark conversation.

Creative solutions like rope, rubber, glass or crystal can add flair to an otherwise staid space. Don't be afraid to experiment with different styles—one of the great things about cabinet accessories is that they're easily swapped in an out, so they can be as much a function of your mood as of their form and functionality.

Whether you choose a more traditional look or decide to add some art to your kitchen cabinets with eclectic hardware choices, be sure to express your style ideals through these small but impactful design details.
