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.

Kingsbridge series adds modern style to Devon Collection

Inspired by English harbor towns and villages, the new Kingsbridge series by Top Knobs combines artisan details with modern style to create a sophisticated flat hardware element. Part of the Top Knobs Devon Collection, the series blends easily into any kitchen or bath design – redefining today’s transitional looks for decorative hardware.

“Wide, but not too wide… detailed, but not too ornate. Everything in the Devon collection is designed with exquisite detailing for a classic, yet modern feel,” states Christine Zimmer, product manager for Top Knobs.

“With the Kingsbridge series we feature smooth flat tops and slightly rounded edges. The base of each piece includes an extra layer of detailing with two parallel bands. And, the T shaped knobs mimic the shape of the pulls with the same wide, flat surface area.”

Smart contemporary lines unite with subtle traditional detailing in each Kingsbridge piece.

The series is available in eight sizes:

  • Three T shaped knobs: 1 3/8”, 1 7/8” and 2 3/8”
  • Four pulls: 3 3/4”, 5 1/16, 6 5/16” and 12” center-to-center sizes
  • A 12” appliance pull

Like other series in the Top Knobs Devon Collection, Kingsbridge available in eight finishes including Ash Gray, a rich on-trend gray, and Honey Bronze, a light brass tone. Other available finishes include Black, Brushed Satin Nickel, Polished Chrome, Polished Nickel, Sable and Umbrio.

The character of harbor towns and villages of Devon County in southwest England inspire the Devon Collection. MSRP is $7.00 to $74.50 per piece. Available at kitchen and bath showrooms nationwide, all Top Knobs products come with a proprietary sealed finish and a lifetime warranty.
