Summer 2023 Design Trends to Follow | Top Knobs

The weather’s getting warmer, the days are getting longer and the water is getting clearer. Summertime is finally here! In celebration of the official start of summer, we’re sharing the hottest trends that are a must to follow this season.

Mixed Metal Finishes

Say goodbye to single-tone finishes. This summer, we expect to see more mixing and matching of fixture finishes throughout the whole home! Combining multiple metals in the same room adds a layer of visual interest while upping the design ante with contemporary flair.  Looking for an easy way to incorporate this trend into your home? Try our Bit Pulls.

Coastal Colors

Summer brings brighter days, fresh greenery and savory sensations of the crisp ocean air. Why not reflect the beautiful shades of nature in your home? This season, the color story taking center stage is a coastal-inspired palette. We’re expecting to see all the seafoam greens and classic blues taking over indoor and outdoor spaces. Not only is this color scheme perfect for adding a dose of the seaside to a room, natural color schemes can reduce stress, increase productivity and creativity and make you feel overall more happy!

A Stripe of Pattern

A timeless summertime staple, stripes are a classic summer trend that will never go out of style. Whether you’re refreshing the living room with a striped throw or adding a new striped rug to your outdoor patio, linear patterns can infuse energy into any space. Looking for the perfect hardware to compliment your summer style? Try the Top Knobs Selection Tool.

Light, Bright & White!

What’s a more enduring look than white? There’s no better time than summer to refresh a room with bright, white walls!  Adding this milky hue to interiors establishes a clean, light feeling while also making a room feel much larger than it is. White walls also lend the perfect backdrop for colorful artwork, furniture and statement decorative accents, making it the perfect canvas if your style is always changing for the season. For a stunning contrast, try mixing our Flat Black finish with your white cabinetry and walls.

Natural Materials

Bringing elements of nature indoors gives an organic touch to spaces. This summer, we anticipate a rise in the use of raw materials. Natural fabrics like linen and cotton will grace interiors such as curtains, throw pillows and furniture upholstery. While cabinets and furniture enhanced by warm wooden textures create a welcoming atmosphere. Looking for hardware to complement natural materials? Browse our 2023 Catalog to shop over 4,500 decorative hardware styles.

Top Knobs Decorative Hardware Care and Maintenance Guide

The kitchen and bathroom are two of the hardest working rooms in the home, and keeping these spaces neat and tidy can often feel like a tedious task. But, consistent upkeep of these areas doesn’t have to be an all-day affair. A little TLC each night goes a long way, especially when it comes to decorative furnishes.

Below, we share our simple guide to cleaning and maintaining your Top Knobs knobs and pulls:

Product Care Do’s:

  • Before cleansing your cabinet hardware, check each knob and pull is securely fashioned to the cabinet drawer or door. If any piece feels loose, simply tighten it with an appropriately sized screwdriver.
  • Top Knobs’ products should be cleaned only with warm water and dishwashing liquid solution. Warm water is recommended as it will help loosen any stuck-on substances.
  • To clean, gently apply the solution to the knobs or pulls with a soft, non-abrasive washcloth or sponge. Lightly wipe the surface of each knob and pull, making sure to sanitize the front and back of each piece.
  • Using a clean washcloth or sponge, rinse off the soap solution with warm water.
  • To dry, towel knobs and pulls with a soft and clean non-abrasive cloth, like a tissue or napkin.

Product Care Don’ts:

  • Do not install Top Knobs’ decorative hardware outside. Our knobs and pulls are meant for interior use only, unless specified otherwise.
  • Harsh cleaners, chemicals or waxes are not to be used to clean knobs and pulls as these will erode the finishes and void warranty.
  • Water and soap residue should not be left on the products will also erode the finishes and void warranty.
  • Never use an abrasive surface, steel wool, wire brush, scrapes, etc. to clean your hardware, as rough surfaces will chip away at the finishes.
  • Top Knobs’ knobs and pulls should not be removed from cabinetry for cleaning. Each piece can be cleaned using the steps above, never left to soak or rise under the sink.

Top Knobs Guide to 2023 Kitchen Design Themes

Over the past few years, kitchens have quickly become the central living hub of the home, with its use transitioning from singular to multi-functional.

As kitchen design and function continue to evolve, so do the trends that define this space. In 2023, kitchens will get a fresh new vibe with updated looks that seriously up the style ante!

Read on as we outline this year’s leading kitchen design themes:

Full on Glam

In 2023, kitchens will receive the full glamour treatment. Straddling the line between chef-worthy and ultra-chic, these luxurious spaces will be equipped with high-end features that are dripping in opulence. By adding dazzling details in the form of premium appliances, smart tools and illuminating fixtures, like our knobs and pulls in Polished Nickel finishes, your kitchen will shine bright like a diamond.

Soft & Neutral

The color spectrum is ever-expanding and preferences for interior chromatic pallets are in constant transition. While 2022 brought bold cabinetry with vibrant greens and blues,  2023 takes a demure turn, with a desire for a more subtle approach when it comes to cabinetry color. This year, neutral wood tones and white hues reign supreme, according to a Houzz study. For those still looking to go bold, stand-out decorative hardware from our Kara series will certainly make neutral cabinetry pop.

Elevated Industrial

As industrial elements pick up in popularity, so does the yearning to incorporate this genre of interior design in every room of the home. Be it genuine building features left exposed or faux decorative embellishments that give way to an architectural and urban atmosphere, one thing is certain, this theme is here to stay. Whether you opt to jump fully into the industrial look or lean towards subtle details, our Cumberland knobs and pulls offer the perfect touch of mechanized detailing, and a structured silhouette suited for a contemporary kitchen.

Modern Marble

Large-format tile and stone slabs in marbleized reliefs are commanding attention in the kitchen this year. From countertops to backsplashes and wrapped islands, these larger-than-life coverings enhance the kitchen with natural beauty. As not to overpower these outstanding surfaces, fixtures in complementing finishes will pick up the nuanced details of kitchen cladding to establish a cohesive and balanced environment. Available in over 30 finish options, our expansive catalog of decorative hooks, knobs, pulls and appliance pulls will complete the look of any kitchen. Find the look that suits your space here.

Bigger & Better

“With great power comes great responsibility,” Voltaire. As the kitchen maintains its role as the workhorse of the home, ancillary space is a must. Although they may still be considered the ultimate luxury, prep kitchens are the way of the future. These hidden gems are accessible from the main kitchen area and offer extra space for meal prep, storage and entertainment. Consider our Coddington collection when adding a scullery or butler’s pantry to your home. New for 2023, this complete line features 5 different complementary suites of cabinet knobs, pulls and appliance pulls that will create a defined yet unified look in each part of your kitchen.
