Fashionista Finishes for Kitchen and Bath Cabinet Hardware

Here’s to the infinite number of decisions you make when designing kitchens and baths that are as exquisite as they are easy to use. The complexities of designing these two rooms have us working even harder to stay in touch with your creative needs. As a result, we offer you three showroom-ready finishes—Matte Black, Satin Bronze, and Brushed Gold—that synchronize with fashion-forward faucets, lighting fixtures, and bath fixtures such as towel bars. You can find these finishes in select collections within our Jeffrey Alexander and Elements lines of hardware. Celebrate finding the perfect knobs and pulls to deliver gorgeous, well-dressed kitchens and baths with your clients.


Add drama to classic white shaker cabinets by using Matte Black hardware that coordinates perfectly with the black faucet. These knobs and pulls are from Jeffrey Alexander’s Sonoma collection.


Matte Black: Give Cabinets a Touch of Drama

You know it. We know it. Black is in. It always has been thanks to its sophisticated connections. When it comes to kitchen and bathroom cabinets, nothing looks more sophisticated than knobs and pulls wearing a Matte Black finish. Think about what you would find in a fashionista’s closet…. the clothes and accessories that make them feel the most polished like black stilettos and ankle boots, black designer bags, and little black dresses. As a designer, you can flaunt your ability to make a kitchen or bathroom look perfectly polished when it’s cabinets wear Hardware Resources’ Matte Black knobs and pulls.

Try adding a dramatic boost to on-trend white- or gray-painted cabinets. Update rustic cabinets made of knotty alder or hickory or come up with a fabulous combination of your own.

Satin Bronze: Coordinate this Finish with Other Metals

We think you’ll agree: Metallic finishes—especially warm gold ones—are definitely on-trend this fall. Designers tell us they’re mixing metals in their kitchen and bath designs, blending modern and traditional styles, and balancing warm and cool tones throughout rooms. That’s why we created our Satin Bronze finish, which pairs a warm gold surface with copper undertones to deliver a lustrous look and feel. Install knobs and pulls with this finish to add touches of glamour to black-painted or dark-stained cabinets.

Brushed Gold: Dazzle the Eye with Precious Metal

Earrings. Wedding bands. Necklaces. Gleaming gold jewelry has been treasured for thousands of years, and it’s still the metal of choice for the fashion elite. We anticipate you’ll find our fearless Brushed Gold finish the metal of choice for making bold design statements in kitchens and master baths. After all, a warm yellow-gold finish adds just the right amount of bling to any project. It also reflects well upon the designer who chooses it. Make brushed gold your signature designing touch.

One of our favorite combinations is using Brushed Gold hardware to dress up cabinets drenched in color—especially pale sage green, rich emerald green, or navy blue. We also love the way knobs and pulls wearing this finish bring gilded detailing to natural wood cabinets or pop like pieces of gorgeous jewelry on classic white or gray cabinets.
