Top Knobs Sets the Standard in an Award Winning Tampa Kitchen

In Tampa, Florida a French inspired kitchen using Top Knobs cabinet hardware has won the prestigious Southeast Builders Conference 2015 Aurora Award for Interior Merchandising/Design in the Kitchen category for projects in the $1,000,001-$2,000,000 range. Here’s a look at the project which was recently featured in House Trends Tampa Magazine.

Amoroso Cabinets, in calibration with Windstar Homes, were the masterminds behind the kitchen project. Since the kitchen is the heart of the home, the homebuilder put most of the budget into the kitchen where family and friends could gather in an open air space.

Screen Shot 2016-03-16 at 8.24.26 AMDoug Amoroso, President of Amoroso Cabinets told House Trends Tampa that the reasoning behind the bright, open air kitchen comes from the latest trend of people using shades of taupe, mushroom and grey with simple details to result in a clean and contemporary feel.

All of the custom made cabinets were perfectly accented by pulls from the Top Knobs Somerset Finial collection in the Pewter Antique finish.

Traditional shapes in contemporary finishes

What’s old is new again! Top Knobs has added three new contemporary finishes to the Canterbury Knob & Backplate and the Dover D-Pull, Latch & Backplate. These traditionally shaped decorative hardware pieces are now available in Brushed Satin Nickel, Polished Chrome and Polished Nickel.

The Canterbury Knob & Backplate from the Britannia Collection evokes olde world artistry and craftsmanship with rustic designs and carefully crafted details. The addition of the Brushed Satin Nickel, Polished Chrome and Polished Nickel finishes make ten unique finish options to choose from.

The Dover D-Pull, Latch & Backplate from the Tuscany collection are inspired by the classic architectural details of Italian villas to bring olde world charm into the heart of the kitchen. All three products are now available in nine finish options.

All Top Knobs products come with proprietary sealed finish and lifetime warranty. View the complete product catalog here.

Mix and Match Looks

One of the most frequently asked questions we receive at Top Knobs is “can I use different knobs and pulls in the same kitchen and have it look OK?” The answer is an astounding yes!

Mixing and matching is exactly the reason why Top Knobs products are organized into collections. Within a collection you can mix and match knobs and pulls of various shapes and designs and still get a unified style in your kitchen.

For example, from the Aspen II Collection you can use one Aspen II pull design on cabinets and another Aspen II pull design on drawers. Use the same length or different lengths, or use the same finish or a different finish, and still have a unified look and style in your kitchen.

Mix and match different styles from the same Top Knobs collection to create a look that’s “all you.”
