Our New Kitchen Updates
We recently made some changes to our kitchen that have completely changed the feeling in it. When we built our house we did many builder-grade things knowing that we would switch them out later on. We moved into our home and then everything took longer than anticipated. Different things come up that are a bigger priority and the things that I thought would get swapped out quickly were pushed back. I knew I wanted my kitchen to be a place that felt calm, collected, and warm. A place where we gather together and know it feels clean, simple, and focus on each other.
When we built our house I made sure that our cabinet hardware was a traditional hole pattern meaning that when we changed them that we wouldn’t need to fill or drill new holes. When we were deciding on what pulls and such we didn’t research anything, we just went with what our builder presented to us knowing we would change them later. We did the brushed nickel large pulls pictured below. Nothing was wrong with these pulls, they just didn’t give the soft, warm feeling I wanted in my kitchen…so we easily swapped them!
I spent a lot of time researching cabinet pulls and knew I wanted something beautiful in an antique brass finish, that would make a simple statement and would last the test of time. I spent hours upon hours researching different styles, brands, colors, etc. and after a lot of time and pros/cons lists, I landed on the most stunning Schaub Hardware pulls. The brass color of these pulls is stunning, it doesn’t pull yellow or look “fake”. It has the prettiest warm tone to it and is exactly what I was searching for.
The pulls matched the hole pattern of the previous hardware we had on our cabinets so it was really easy to switch out. A few hours, a drill, and a show for my kids to watch and they were all swapped out and the feeling completely changed. It changed so much that we ended up changing the hardware to these throughout all of our bathrooms as well and I do not regret it at all.
The simple change of cabinet hardware has brought peace into my home as silly as that might sound. As you walk into my kitchen it is simple, warm, and has a beautiful feeling of simplicity. It is exactly what I hoped for in swapping them out and I’m forever grateful that I did.
Schuabb has so many beautiful pulls, knobs, and so much more. I’ll link their site here if you are in the market or want to research the simple switch of hardware on your cabinets. It is something that you won’t regret and Schaub Hardware will hold up the test of time.
