Flip that House: An Arizona Fixer Upper Gets a Major Facelift with Top Knobs

With only a few months to work with, Chris and Molly from Fitch Hill transformed a dated Arizona property into a crisp, timeless home for new owners. The impressively creative and meticulously designed renovation took the Scottsdale home from basic and outdated to simplistically chic with the help of Top Knobs decorative hardware.

During the initial design phase the pair drew up plans to bring a modern, yet timeless look into the home. “We brought in some more contemporary items, but overall we wanted to create a crisp design that would stand the test of time. We feel we did a great job staying on trend, while also ensuring that the home will still be up to date in 10 years.”

Working on a tight timeline, Chris and Molly pulled off a full interior remodel of the Scottsdale home that included the addition a powder room while also moving the location of the kitchen, master bath and laundry room. “This project had to come together extremely quickly from the beginning of the design phase through construction,” Chris explained. “All in the same day, plans were finalized, given to the city, a permit was granted and demo was started on the property.” While they admit the timeline was a bit of a challenge, the duo was surprisingly able to hit all of their deadlines. “Our team had such great communication that we were able to pull it off somehow.”

Knobs and pulls from the Top Knobs Lynwood Collection in Honey Bronze gave the kitchen and wet bar the classic and contemporary twist that Chris and Molly were going for. The on-trend Honey Bronze finish worked flawlessly with the white cabinetry in the kitchen, and provided a stunning contrast when used on the black cabinetry at the wet bar.

“We love Top Knobs not only because of the large selection of items for all of our different project styles, but also for the quality of the products and the customer service,” says Chris.

The design duo kept the kitchen design fresh by using a bright, open-concept layout and mixing materials throughout the space. They opted to experiment with different metals, concrete, marble, wood and quartz for a look that has quickly become a portfolio favorite.

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.
