Custom tower cabinets surround the primary cooking zone of the design, while a cushioned banquette in the dining area features lower drawers to keep miscellaneous materials out of site. A large butler’s pantry equipped with barn doors hide larger kitchen appliances away from the prep space.  All the custom cabinetry was made complete with knobs and cup pulls from the Top Knobs Asbury Collection.

The reclaimed wood custom cabinets were finished with Brushed Satin Nickel pulls from Top Knobs for a clean shine that left the kitchen with a modern look and feel.


screen-shot-2016-09-14-at-4-30-10-pmPreviously a horse carriage storage shed, the bronze winner of the Under $50,000 Kitchen is a historic building in Crested Butte, CO. The building owners chose to restore the carriage shed and transform it into a vacation cabin rental with a modern twist. Light colored cabinetry complete with Top Knobs Pewter Cup Pulls off-set the darker elements of the room, including a reclaimed oak floor and backsplash.


screen-shot-2016-09-14-at-4-42-17-pmIn the Kitchen Showroom category, Nar Bustamante Fine Carpentry in Carmichael, CA took silver for using new materials in a distinct way. Nar Bustamante was challenged with using corporate approved colors to achieve a warm, luxurious and modern look while showcasing his clients’ stoves and stone.

This natural light spills over into the bathroom vanity which is made up of pure white quartz and rift white oak, finished off with Aspen and Europa pulls from Top Knobs.


screen-shot-2016-09-15-at-9-09-28-amAlso a bronze winner in the Master Bathrooms under $30,000 category, designer Sara Lee devised a new floor plan that expands the owner’s bathroom by nearly 30 square feet. The zen inspired bathroom featured a standing tub with a waterfall faucet and a separate shower space. A custom vanity topped with marble granite and a widespread faucet was completed with Oil Rubbed Bronze pulls from Top Knobs.

 


screen-shot-2016-09-15-at-9-14-49-amLast but not least, Nar Bustamante Fine Carpentry won another bronze award in the Powder Room category.

The room features a mix of reclaimed wood, steel and modern fixtures including a vanity made up of a reclaimed wooden slab. To complete the rustic look, the vanity includes Top Knobs 3″ Bit Pulls in Patina Rouge.

Transcend Collection brings a modern look to a colonial kitchen

With help from designer Sarah Robertson, interior designer Suzanne McGrath set out to re-design her home kitchen with the primary goal of re-vamping the space to feature an expansive storage capacity in an open and welcoming way.

screen-shot-2016-09-07-at-4-19-24-pmThe renovation, featured on today.com by Houzz contributor Mitchell Parker, included custom cabinets to hold every item imaginable, including a recessed paper towel holder, a mixer shelf, a spice drawer, a custom knife block drawer and slots for baking sheets.

Even more unique is a wide spice drawer to the left of the range to organizes jars. “You can read the labels and don’t have to reach for ones high up,” Robertson says. “It’s a great setup right by a range. When I redo my own kitchen, I’m going to put in two.”

Top Knobs Transcend Ascendra Pulls accent this colonial kitchen featured on Houzz

 

Light blue subway tiles were used as a backsplash to provide a bit of color to the 1920s Colonial-style home. To modernize the look, hints of stainless steel appliances and cabinet hardware were used throughout the kitchen as well.  “It could be interpreted either way — modern or traditional. That’s what I like about it,” says Robertson.

The custom cabinets were complete with Ascendra knobs and pulls from the Top Knobs Transcend collection.

Handcrafted excellence in decorative hardware

Top Knobs strives to offer designers decorative cabinet hardware that’s crafted with tradition and built to last. That’s where the Aspen and Aspen II Collections come in. Both are created from 90% recycled bronze and hand-finished for a beautiful, elegant style at an affordable price.

Raw bronze

Raw bronze, the beginnings of the Top Knobs Aspen Collection.

What began 5,000 years ago as the standard for creating art, jewelry and armor has become the standard of excellence. Intricate copper formulas and traditional casting techniques are infused into each handcrafted Top Knobs design.

Each piece is coated with a proprietary sealed finish that helps Aspen’s light patina and natural distressed look stay protected from age and wear.

Every Aspen piece is hand-cast and hand finished, which accentuates the one-of-a kind look and feel. Made with solid castings of artisan grade bronze, the quality of Top Knobs can be felt in the palm of your hand.
