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.



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.




Thank you, Michele, for choosing Top Knobs for your kitchen renovation! To see the complete kitchen renovation, visit her DIY Kitchen Renovation blog post here.

Ten Years of Dakota

Since its introduction in 2007 the Top Knobs Dakota collection has been a go-to choice for kitchen and bath designers for rustic yet contemporary decorative hardware. The collection has expanded since its launch and now includes 21 different knob, pull and cup pulls in a combination of 11 finishes.  With so many choices, which piece will you select to reflect your personal style?

Available at kitchen and bath showrooms nationwide, each piece in the Top Knobs Dakota Collection includes a proprietary sealed finish and Top Knobs lifetime warranty. Here we highlight the three main pieces in the collection: the Charlotte Pull, the Bergen Knob and the Dakota Cup Pull.

The Charlotte Pull

There’s a reason the Charlotte Pull has been a Top Knobs best seller for years. This gentle cabinet pull features a smooth handle and subtly flairs out in a circle shape at the base.  This thin, delicate style matches nearly any decor.

It is offered in three sizes, 3”, 4” and 6” center-to-center dimensions, with a coordinating 2 9/16” cup pull.

The Dakota Collection Charlotte Pull is available in seven finishes: Brushed Satin Nickel (BSN), Oil Rubbed Bronze (ORB), Patina Rouge (PAR), Polished Chrome (PC), Polished Nickel (PN), Pewter Antique (PTA), and Tuscan Bronze (TB).

The Bergen Knob

A style chameleon, the flat topped 1 ¼” Bergen Knob finds a home in any kitchen or bath. Depending on the finish selected, the knob adds either a contemporary or a traditional accent wherever it is installed. This style is one of Top Knobs Product Manager Christine Zimmer’s favorite pieces because of its versatility.

The Dakota Collection Bergen Knob is available in nine finishes: Brushed Bronze (BB), Flat Black (BLK), Brushed Satin Nickel (BSN), Oil Rubbed Bronze (ORB), Patina Rouge (PAR), Polished Chrome (PC), Polished Nickel (PN), Pewter Antique (PTA), and Tuscan Bronze (TB).

The Dakota Cup Pull

This 2 9/16″ cup pull adds a punch of style. The Dakota Cup Pull is the perfect shape and size for hands to grab and open drawers. The oval shaped cup pull includes faux screw marks for a touch of authenticity.

The Dakota Cup Pull is available in seven finishes: Brushed Satin Nickel (BSN), Oil Rubbed Bronze (ORB), Patina Rouge (PAR), Polished Chrome (PC), Polished Nickel (PN), Pewter Antique (PTA), and Tuscan Bronze (TB).

Pennington Bar Pulls add Contemporary Flair to a Space Savvy Kitchen

With help from Top Knobs decorative hardware, designer Paul Lintault of the award winning remodeling company BKC Kitchen and Bath transformed a small kitchen into a contemporary space with an abundance of storage options.

Crystal and wooden style cabinets with Manhattan style doors were installed around the kitchen. The use of both upper and lower cabinets helped to maximize storage without taking up additional space in the room.

Various sized Pennington Bar Pulls from the Top Knobs Bar Pull Collection in Brushed Satin Nickel finish were used throughout the room. The clean lines of the pulls helped to create a seamless transition between the different shapes and sizes of the cabinets.

Exeter and Torbay Cabinet Pull Series from Devon Collection add Modern Style and Grace

Top Knobs offers two new cabinet pull series under the Devon Collection: introducing Exeter and Torbay series of cabinet pulls. Fine detailing and craftsmanship set these trending transitional pulls apart with subtle edging and flowing curves. New finishes, including Ash Gray and Honey Bronze, complete the launches and offer designers and homeowners greater flexibility and personalization.

“With the Exeter and Torbay series we wanted to offer cabinet pull shapes for both modern and classically style kitchens and baths,” states Christine Zimmer, product manager for Top Knobs.

“Each piece in the Collection offers incredible attention to detail and craftsmanship inspired by travels to Devon County in southwest England. The shapes may be simple, but it is the details that elevate the Exeter and Torbay pulls to the next level of transitional design.”

Devon Collection – Exeter Series

The Exeter series features a modern style bar pull that is equally at home any style kitchen. Each piece starts with the same basic bar pull shape. Each corner, where the pull bends down to attach to cabinetry, is sliced on a subtle angle to reveal an oval shaped edge.

Exeter series pulls are offered in six sizes to suit a variety of door and drawer lengths: 3 3/4″, 5 1/16″, 6 5/16″, 7 9/16″, 8 13/16″ and 12″ center-to-center.

Devon Collection – Torbay Series

The Torbay series highlights a classic pull shape that adds elegance wherever it is used. Each gently shaped pull offers fluid curves at the base that spread out to elongate the shape of the piece and add effortless style to cabinet doors and drawer fronts.

Torbay is available in six sizes: 3 3/4″, 5 1/16″, 6 5/16″, 7 9/16″, 8 13/16″ and 12″ center-to-center.
