Top Knobs Adds a Modern Touch to a Texas Kitchen on HGTV’s Fixer Upper

Chip and Joanna Gaines from HGTV’s hit show Fixer Upper helped a first-time home-buying couple transform a vintage property into a modern home, complete with cabinet hardware from Top Knobs in their season 3 episode “Tiny House, Big Charm.”

Before and After Home Shots: Top Knobs Adds a Modern Touch to Kitchen on HGTV's Fixer UpperThe couple chose to purchase one of the two remaining original shotgun style houses in Waco, Texas – but it required extensive interior and exterior repairs. The couple signed on the home, transported it to an entirely new lot across town, and got to work gutting and reframing it.

The layout of the kitchen in the home was transformed in the revised floor plan. During the construction process the center section of the existing structure (formerly the bedroom) was opened up to become part of the open-concept kitchen.

Modern Metro Tab Pulls from the Top Knobs Sanctuary II collection in Polished Chrome were installed on the white oak cabinets. The sleek design on the tab pulls add an additional contemporary touch to the design.

Project Review: Modernized 1890s Brownstone Kitchen

Michele Alfano of Michele Alfano Designs, known for her modern signature, recently took on a new challenge to work with clients who prefer a more traditional style. She was asked to modernize the kitchen of a 1892 brownstone in Hoboken, NJ yet maintain the home’s historic touches. Top Knobs Somerset transitional style decorative hardware was an integral part of the design.

“The Hoboken home had great bones,” said Alfano. The designer introduced tin metal into the kitchen that brought in sophisticated and historic detailing. It not only honored the personality of Victorian homes in the 1890s, but also created an architectural focal point in this kitchen.

Brownstone-Project-Top-Knobs-Alfano-DesignsThe tin was recessed into the sheetrock ceiling directly over the island and in line with the pantry. A pure modern gesture.

White cabinetry was accented with shades of grays. The honed gray concrete counter in combination with the polished marble-look island makes a statement. The crisp lines of the island’s waterfall stone edge swirl with attention.

The client fell in love with the Top Knobs Somerset pull and cup pull decorative hardware collection in a brushed nickel finish. Its contemporary design with striking curves and straight edges was a nice accent to the lines of the cabinetry.

The Somerset collection offers a seamless transition between classic and contemporary. The cabinet hardware is available in 2 ½” and 3” cup pulls, nine knob styles and five style pulls: Star pulls, Voss pulls, Arendal pulls, Somerset pulls and Wire pulls. A mixture of 18 finishes varying by product style make the transitional Top Knobs collection ideal for nearly any kitchen design.

The apron front sink was a perfect selection for the kitchen. A contemporary take on a classic style, it is crafted in Silgranit, a granite composite that is ultra-cleanable and extremely durable. The client loves it.

Layers of lighting fill the kitchen space. Recessed ceiling lighting, under-cabinet lighting and modern pendants drop from the geometric tin ceiling over the island. Opening up the back wall with a large span of windows was key to the design. Views of their garden with tons of natural light pours into their space making it feel larger.

According to Alfano, the collaboration with the client worked seamlessly and they are so happy in their new home.

Brass decorative hardware adds sophistication to French countryside inspired kitchen

Top Knobs helps blend simplicity and sophistication in a French countryside inspired South Carolina kitchen featured in Better Homes and Gardens Beautiful Kitchens & Baths.

Brass Top Knobs hardware in French Countryside KitchenIn Charleston, Elizabeth and Mark Barnette sought after a simple and nostalgic design for their open concept kitchen. As a result, the couple opted for subtle white walls, cabinets and appliances to mimic a low country style.
