Kitchen Cabinet Hardware Trends for 2021

Whether your style is modern, farmhouse, or traditional, there is plenty of inspiration to help you decide what kitchen cabinet hardware trend to incorporate in your kitchen design.  Knowing how to choose kitchen cabinet hardware isn’t meant to be a secret only the top designers have – we believe every homeowner has the right to gorgeous, high end cabinet hardware options. Here are 3 of the most popular design styles and how to accentuate them in your cabinet design:


Modern Cabinet Hardware

Since modern design is all about sleek lines, shop for simple rectangular handle shapes or clean geometric knobs. While color options for modern cabinet hardware are nearly limitless, we’re big fans of high contrast. Black finishes on white cabinets is the modern cabinet hardware trend making itself known in 2021 interior design – and we’re here for it!

Farmhouse Cabinet Hardware

If you consider your design style to be rustic, farmhouse, or vintage, this is the kitchen cabinet hardware trend you’ll want to pay most attention to. With farmhouse cabinet hardware, you’ll likely pull either very simple details or very ornate ones – there is no in between! On the simpler spectrum lies iron twisted pulls or rounded bin pulls. Whereas a more decorative high end cabinet hardware option is engraved cabinet pulls.

When it comes to hardware color to match your farmhouse cabinets, its more about material than color. Since farmhouse design capitalizes on texture, stick with copper, bronze, brass, or cast-iron cabinet hardware for a truly rustic vibe.

Traditional Cabinet Hardware

Traditional design is inspired by the 18th and 19th centuries, but how does that resonate with 21st century kitchens? Traditional design strives for consistency, symmetry, and beauty all wrapped up in one. In the world of high end cabinet hardware, this looks like beautifully curved handle edges as opposed to straight ones found more so in modern cabinet hardware. Think consistent patterns and flowing movement across dark colors like oil rubbed bronze or antique brass.

How to Choose Kitchen Cabinet Hardware

Choosing the right kitchen cabinet hardware for you comes down to these 3 key components:

  1. Your style – Take a look around the other rooms of your home. What design style do you tend to lean towards? Do you like bold contrasts or monochromatic tones? Does functionality take priority over beauty, or is it the other way around?
  2. Your cabinets – The color, height, and face of your new custom or semi-custom cabinets can help dictate what kind of high end cabinet hardware to choose.
  3. Your budget – At the end of the day, sticking to your budget matters a lot. The good news is that there are plenty of gorgeous, low-cost cabinet hardware options on the market today.
