Top Knobs was recently featured in a Houzz article written by contributor Becky Harris. The article entitled, “Family Kitchen Smartens Up With a New Ecofriendly Renovation” features a family with a passion for sustainability in Portland, Oregon.
The family hired Encircle Design and Build to help convert their kitchen into an ecofriendly space with some help from Top Knobs cabinetry hardware.
Before the transformation, the kitchen seemed disconnected to the rest of the house due to the dated cabinetry and wall colors. Because of limited cabinet space, pots and pans hung from the ceiling and clutter filled the countertops, making it an unfriendly environment for their two young children who loved spending time in the kitchen.
The new countertops that were installed were 30 inches wide instead of the original 12. New corner cabinets and a wraparound countertop allowed for additional storage space and a place for the children to finish their homework while their parents cooked.
To complete the look, designers used Top Knobs Square Knobs and Bar Pulls from the Nouveau III collection. The Square Knobs are 5/8″, while the Bar Pulls are 5 1/16″. The flat black finish accented the blue cabinetry perfectly, giving it a modern yet homey look.

To fulfill their promise of sustainability, all previous appliances were donated to a homeless shelter while the salvageable wood was donated to another nonprofit. Any items that could not be reused were responsibly recycled.

Top Knobs launches a new website to offer designers and customers an effortless way to browse Top Knobs collections, select finishes and order product samples. The website is up for public view, and can be accessed at www.TopKnobs.com.
“We are pleased and excited to present our refreshed website,” said Top Knobs President, Warren Ramsland. “The new site allows us to showcase the vast array of Top Knobs finishes and collections in order to ensure that every customer has the ability to discover the exact product they need. We hope it will inspire more designers and homeowners to select Top Knobs for their decorative hardware needs.”
The new TopKnobs.com comes shortly after the dealer portion of the website launched this past winter. The website allows interested designers and customers to order product samples at a $5 flat shipping rate per piece, and if satisfied, connects them with a dealer in their area. Users can search for Top Knobs products by collection name or product type. Further search parameters include size (center-to-center, projection, width, overall length, base diameter) and material, finish, style. The dealer portion of the website connects Top Knobs dealers with their account, plus allows them to check inventory and place orders.
Other unique features of the TopKnobs.com include an online catalog, and the ability to show related products, such as matching appliance pulls and latches. Additionally, the extensive photo gallery includes photos of Top Knobs products in kitchens and bathrooms to inspire new and unique projects.
