Want to refresh your kitchen without renovating it completely? Or do you just need some finishing touches for the cabinets in your new custom home? Either way, you've come to the right place! In this blog post, we're looking at some of the top trends for cabinet hardware, an often overlooked - yet important - element to kitchens everywhere. After all, it's nice to have something to help you open up those cabinets, and there's no reason why they can't look good while doing so! Let's take a look at what's trending below.

Matte and Satin Black Finishes

One of the hottest trends in cabinet hardware right now is black - and more specifically, matte and satin black finishes. While shiny chrome has been the go-to for years, black hardware is a sleek and modern alternative that can really help to give your kitchen a new look. And because it's such a versatile colour, it can be used in both traditional and contemporary kitchen designs.

Mixed Metals

Another popular trend is mixed metals, which is a great way to add some visual interest to your kitchen. This can be done in a number of ways, such as using two different metals for the handles and knobs on your cabinets, or using a mix of metal finishes throughout the room. This is a great option if you're not ready to commit to one metal finish, or if you want to add a little bit of contrast to your kitchen.


If you're looking for a more functional option, latches are becoming increasingly popular for cabinet hardware. These are especially popular in the kitchens of families with young children, as they can help to prevent little ones from getting into cabinets that they shouldn't. But latches can also be a great choice if you're looking for a more rustic or vintage feel for your kitchen.

Modern Bar Pulls

Sleek and slim bar pulls continue to be a popular choice for kitchen cabinets, and this year, both tubular and square options are trending. Tubular bar pulls have a more traditional look, while square bar pulls are a bit more modern. If you're not sure which style to choose, why not try both? You can always mix and match to create your own unique look.

Brass Finishes

Whether it's brushed or polished, brass is making a comeback in the world of cabinet hardware, and it's definitely one of the hottest trends right now. Brass hardware can add a touch of luxury to your kitchen, and it looks great with both dark and light cabinets. If you're looking for a way to add a little bit of glam to your kitchen, brass is the way to go.

The Bottom Line

As you can see, there are a lot of great options when it comes to cabinet hardware. So whether you're looking for something functional or purely aesthetic, there's sure to be a trend that's perfect for you. Just remember to have fun with it and experiment until you find the perfect look for your kitchen. Thanks for reading!
