Tips to Use Amerock Knobs for Your Renovation

For almost 100 years, Amerock Hardware has been providing quality hardware for American homes. Started in 1929 in Rockford, Illinois by Reuben Aldeen and a few employees, the company has grown into a major manufacturer of decorative hardware for the kitchen, bath and other areas of the home.

In 1935, Amerock introduced the concept of using matching hardware to decorate the home. Since that time, they have produced lines of Amerock knobs, pulls and hinges that are designed for use together to create a uniform and dramatic look. This concept has transformed the look of kitchens and bathrooms across America, creating a feeling of uniformity and consistency in each space. Their lines have become so popular that now, almost 100 years later, their unique designs were featured on an episode of the hit t.v. show Designing Spaces!

Using their matching hardware idea as a model, the consumer can easily find Amerock knobs that will match with the existing decor or create a new statement in a home renovation. If the kitchen cabinetry is dark in color, nickel knobs will lighten up the space and add a dressy touch. For an outstanding and fun art deco look, combine black cabinetry with nickel knobs and use hunter green or yellow as a color accent for floor tiles or for a backsplash.

For light kitchen cabinetry, use brass cabinet knobs to create a uniform look. Antique brass knobs are particularly lovely on light wood cabinetry. The yellow hue of the brass knobs brings out the warmth of the cabinetry and creates an accompaniment of distinction and style.

Staying consistent with the concept that Amerock began in 1935, renovate the kitchen using Amerock pulls, appliance pulls, backplates and more that are from the same line as the chosen Amerock knobs. If solid brass knobs are being used for the kitchen cabinetry, select solid brass for the appliance pulls and the hinges as well. If some of the cabinet drawers are larger and heavier than others, consider adding a few Amerock pulls to the hardware selection, ensuring that you have a sturdy grip and an easy grasp on those drawers.

With a huge selection from which to choose, Amerock cabinet hardware ensures that any kitchen renovation can be made with ease. Once the desired look of the renovation has been determined and the hardware finish selected, it will be easy to create one consistent look with Amerock knobs, pulls, and other hardware items available today. Remember to stay consistent with your finishes and to have fun renovating your space!
