Top Knobs’ Guide to Trending Finishes

From the color of the walls to the surface of the countertops, your kitchen and bath are a reflection of your personal style – and when it comes to knobs, pulls, and accessories we believe you should have the same opportunity to express yourself. Having the right hardware in your projects draws the eye and accentuates style. That’s why Top Knobs offers 40 sealed finishes, in line with the latest design trends and each with a personality all its own.

With so many quality finishes to choose from, it may seem impossible to pick just one. That’s why we’ve formulated this guide highlighting popular finishes that are in line with the latest interior design trends of 2018:

Flat Black (BLK): There’s no denying that black fixtures have made a comeback as one of the hottest trends in kitchen and bathroom designs. Traditionally chosen for more modern spaces, the matte look and feel of  Top Knobs’ Flat Black finish adds a touch of drama and contrast to designs.

Polished Nickel (PN): Inspired by the timeless sophistication of the Victorian Era, Polished Nickel is lustrous and adaptive to almost any design scheme, making it a desirable finishing touch that will never go out of style.
 

Honey Bronze (HB): Honey Bronze puts a chic twist on classic bronze and brass finishes with a softer, light golden tone. The stunning shade adds the perfect touch of old-world charm to kitchen and bath designs.
 

 

Brushed Satin Nickel (BSN): Satin Nickel saw its rise to fame during the mid-century modern era where it lived with bright colors, bold patterns and modular furniture. Now its popular and visually appealing soft silver tone is used to add a sophisticated touch to rooms without being overbearing.

Ash Gray (AG): A unique alternative to traditional gray finishes, Ash Gray brings a warm feeling to designs with its low-reflecting shine. The versatile color works well with any color scheme and acts as an anchor to bring all parts of the room together.

Brass (BR): Called the “comeback of the year” by the design community, brass finishes add a luxurious feel to room designs. This bright, shining finish instantly updates the space it graces while also adding a warm and welcoming ambiance.

Stainless Steel (SS): Clean and modern, Top Knobs’ stainless steel finish is designed to coordinate with high-end appliances and is ideal for those who want a matching look for their kitchen and a bit of extra shine.

 

Old English Copper (OEC): Featuring an earthy hue and red and orange tones, Old English Copper is one of the most stand-out finishes offered. This accent tone makes a statement while simultaneously creating a warm aesthetic.

Pewter (PT): Found in the darker side of the silver metal family, Pewter perfectly picks up light while also casting a very soft glow. Pewter is often used to complement elegant decor styles and is commonly referred to as an old-world finish.

White (WH): In the era of the white modern farmhouse it’s no surprise that white finishes are trending in the kitchen and bathroom. White decorative hardware accessories brighten up the space and add a clean appearance that keep spaces looking like new.

Top Knobs’ commitment to superior finishes begins with high-grade metals, molds and lacquer. Each hue richly and beautifully crafted for a difference you can clearly see. Plus, our finishes are sealed, allowing them to stand up to the toughest conditions and maintain their good looks over time.

Award Winning Mid-Century Modern Kitchen Comes to Life with The Aspen Collection

In Chevy Chase, Maryland Meghan Browne from Jennifer Gilmer Kitchen & Bath was tasked with transforming a dated, closed off kitchen into an modern entertainment destination with a space savvy twist, aided by Top Knobs.

To get the project started the team removed the wall separating the kitchen from the family room, allowing for more natural light to extend into the room. An added doorway was installed so the cook has direct access to the dining room without getting in the way of guests at the island.

Concentrating the sink, dishwasher, double ovens and fridge along a single wall threatened to leave little room for usable storage. To allow for the most space possible, Meghan and the team boldly located the sink flush with the right edge of the window to get a larger base cabinet that is perfect for nesting bowls, pots and pans or small appliance storage.

Once the layout was finalized, large cabinets spanning from the floor to the ceiling were installed throughout the kitchen.  Flat Sided Pulls in Silicon Bronze Light from the Top Knobs Aspen Collection added necessary charm that pulled the entire design together.

This kitchen went on to win First Place in the Small Kitchen category for the NKBA Baltimore/Washington Chapter Kitchen and Bath Design Awards in March. It has also been featured online by Kitchen and Bath Business. Thank you to Jennifer Gilmer Kitchen & Bath for sharing your Top Knobs project with us!

Mid-Century minimalism in a collection of knobs and pulls – introducing the Top Knobs Lynwood Collection

Inspired by the designs found in mid-century modern neighborhoods across the United States, Top Knobs introduces the Lynwood Collection of decorative hardware. This collection of knobs, pulls, cup pulls, and backplates mimics the minimalistic shapes found in furniture and architectural styles from the mid 1930s to the mid 1960s.

 

Mid-century minimalism at its finest, the Lynwood Collection includes 306 pieces in seven series. Highlights include two appliance pull shapes and rectangular backplates featuring open backs.

“Each series in the collection is named after neighborhoods in Texas, Virginia, Arizona, and Colorado that are known for their mid-century architecture,” states Christine Zimmer, Top Knobs Product Manager. “The Lynwood Collection itself is named after a popular mid-century modern style neighborhood in Denver, Colorado.”

 

Each Lynwood piece is available in six trending finishes: Ash Gray (AG), Flat Black (BLK), Brushed Satin Nickel (BSN), Honey Bronze (HB), Polished Chrome (PC), and Polished Nickel (PN). MSRP ranges from $4.30 to $98.00.

Aspen Collection Helps Transform an Arizona Fixer-Upper Kitchen

When it came time for Chicago native Michele from Hello Lovely Studio and her husband to choose a second home for vacation and retirement, picking the location was simple. With year-round warm weather, open space and family living nearby the couple purchased a 4 bedroom Mediterranean style cottage in Arizona. While the home was practically like new, it lacked the serene style and relaxing atmosphere they craved in a vacation home. Cabinet hardware from the Top Knobs Aspen Collection helped transform the once plain kitchen into a French-Nordic inspired paradise.

Arizona Home Shot

Having previously renovated her primary residence, Michele was confident that she could transform her kitchen all on her own. To start, the couple salvaged the old maple cabinets and painted them a soft European blue-grey color. Since the cabinets stood short in a room with 9 foot ceilings, they added risers to the cabinet tops and installed crown molding for dimension.

After

Michele traded in her dark colored appliances for bright, stainless steel. The once mottled brown laminate countertops were replaced with Quartz countertop  accented by Calacatta gold marble wall tile.

To aid in the chic, yet serene, charm of the kitchen Michele partnered with Top Knobs and installed knobs and pulls from the Top Knobs Aspen Collection. 3-inch Aspen Cup Pulls were used on the lower drawers, while Aspen Potato Knobs were used on upper and lower cabinets. The subtle look of the collection added much needed style to the once bare cabinets.
