trending styles

It’s hard keeping up with what styles are trending, but we have a pretty good idea of what’s here to stay.

MINIMALISTIC – It seems for a few years now the minimalistic style has been the look people go for. It’s a popular design with an emphasis on simplicity and uncluttered. Everyone knows the term less is more and this style certainly does just that.

CONTEMPORARY – contemporary is also another style that is very ‘now’ and bold. The style plays around with texture, colours, and clean lines. It has a focus on architectural elements creating a space filled with warmth and sophistication. Our C137 is a mix between simplicity and clean lines reflecting the contemporary style into whatever space.

TRADITIONAL – A lot of people are more inclined to lean towards the traditional style as it gives character and unique touch to the space. Traditional style handles tend to have more of a design and pattern compared to modern handles hence why cup pulls are the most chosen handle for this style.

Satin nickel, black, chrome, white, brass, timber, stainless steel! There are so many finishes to choose from, here are our top 4 finishes trending this year!

BLACK – The black finish has undoubtedly been a popular choice and for good reason. If you’re after an elegant, contemporary handle with a hint of modern influence then this finish is what you want. Black handles have become a common option for light coloured cabinets, becoming the favourite pick for designers.

WHITE – White cabinet handles have entered the design world with a pop, and I don’t think they are going anywhere. The timeless finish alone creates a sense of space while being refreshing to the eye. We’ve seen contemporary, modern styled kitchens remain one of the most popular trends and style that a lot of people go for, and white handles are perfect for achieving just that! It’s something about the simplicity and fresh look of white handles that we love.

BRASS / SATIN GOLD Unlike a lot of other finishes, brass adds a nice touch of warmth to your space. It looks beautiful against white, black, and earthy tones. Choose between the different brass finishes such as satin or polished to suit your room.

TIMBER – Timber handles are making their debut, and we aren’t mad about it! Who wouldn’t want to add natural warmth into their homes? Each handle is unique in its own way and has subtle hints of texture and pattern that are sure to liven up any plain surface. We offer two different types of timber; white oak which is lighter, and secondly, a rich walnut finish which as suggested by the name is a darker wood.

Alright, let’s talk barn doors!

BARN DOOR HARDWARE –They aren’t just a thing of the past anymore.
