An Ecofriendly Renovation Aided by Top Knobs

Top Knobs was recently featured in a Houzz article written by contributor Becky Harris. The article entitled, “Family Kitchen Smartens Up With a New Ecofriendly Renovation” features a family with a passion for sustainability in Portland, Oregon.

The family hired Encircle Design and Build to help convert their kitchen into an ecofriendly space with some help from Top Knobs cabinetry hardware.

Before the transformation, the kitchen seemed disconnected to the rest of the house due to the dated cabinetry and wall colors. Because of limited cabinet space, pots and pans hung from the ceiling and clutter filled the countertops, making it an unfriendly environment for their two young children who loved spending time in the kitchen.

The new countertops that were installed were 30 inches wide instead of the original 12. New corner cabinets and a wraparound countertop allowed for additional storage space and a place for the children to finish their homework while their parents cooked.

To complete the look, designers used Top Knobs Square Knobs and Bar Pulls from the Nouveau III collection. The Square Knobs are 5/8″, while the Bar Pulls are 5 1/16″. The flat black finish accented the blue cabinetry perfectly, giving it a modern yet homey look.

To fulfill their promise of sustainability, all previous appliances were donated to a homeless shelter while the salvageable wood was donated to another nonprofit. Any items that could not be reused were responsibly recycled.

The dealer portion of the website connects Top Knobs dealers with their account, plus allows them to check inventory and place orders.

Other unique features of the TopKnobs.com include an online catalog, and the ability to show related products, such as matching appliance pulls and latches. Additionally, the extensive photo gallery includes photos of Top Knobs products in kitchens and bathrooms to inspire new and unique projects.

Top Knobs Shines in ‘Kitchen & Bath Makeovers’ Magazine

KBMLargeTop Knobs took over the project scene in the Summer 2015 edition of Better Homes & Gardens: Kitchen & Bath Makeovers. Top Knobs products were featured in three different projects, all designed with their own unique twist!

These kitchen and bath makeovers took place in homes all around the United States. Each project had a different budget ranging from small to large, proving that Top Knobs products can accommodate any sized project.

 

Growing Pains

Top Knobs Charlotte 3″ Pulls

Growing Pains: Homeowners Molly and Andy Beals remodeled their master bathroom with a budget of only $710. They took their previously dark and busy chevron patterned bathroom, and turned it into a tranquil space using hues of cool neutral colors.

To compliment the new light and earthy colors, the Beals replaced their old vanity countertop with a lighter colored one. Top Knobs Charlotte 3” pulls were used to complete the look and give the vanity even more of a fresh feel.


 

Fresh Era

Cabinet Cup Pulls

Fresh Era: Over in San Diego, Joanne O’Dea and John Rudderham agreed to remodel their 13-year-old kitchen after 18 long months of planning. Living in a bungalow with a small sized kitchen, Joanne and John’s main remodeling goals were to give the kitchen a fresh new feel, while simultaneously increasing storage space.

The homeowners chose shades of light green to give the kitchen a cheerful vibe and installed new cabinets all around the kitchen to give them more storage space. To finish off their new space, Joanne and John used Top Knobs Cabinet Cup Pulls on the drawers that lined their kitchen.


 

Over The Moon

Asbury Collection

Over The Moon: Last, Atlanta designer Kelly Kole redesigned her bathroom after falling in love with a blue and white floral wallpaper. After deciding upon the wallpaper as the high-point of the room, she then used creamy-white paint colors and bath accessories to bring the rest of the room together.

The bathroom also features duel vanities and custom cabinetry to match the color scheme of the room. Once installed, the vanity was completed by adding cabinet hardware from the Top Knobs Asbury Collection in a polished nickel finish.

Top Knobs featured in a new “Steamy Kitchen” design by Susan Serra, Part Two

7680

Jaden Hair, professional recipe developer, television chef and author of the blog Steamy Kitchen recently decided it was time for a kitchen makeover for her Florida home. She enlisted the help of designer Susan Serra to help her create the perfect kitchen that’s fit for a hard working chef, as well as a busy family of four. Jaden only had two requests, a wide open space that would accommodate both family activities and still maintain a large enough area for prepping and cooking, her second request- no laminate!

We interviewed Jaden to hear her thoughts on her beautiful new kitchen and see how Top Knobs was able to assist in bringing the design to life.

Q: What’s the recipe to working with a designer to bring your vision to life?

I’m such a DIY gal, ​that I briefly considered designing this kitchen on my own. But within an hour of doing research and sketching out a design on paper, I realized that we’d be putting ourselves at risk if we didn’t hire a professional designer. Susan flew to our home in Florida from NYC and flew home the same day. We spent about 3 hours measuring, re-measuring the kitchen​ and discussing ideas.

For example, we talked about our love for gardening, where the kids do their homework (which led to the large center island) and the serene mood we wanted to evoke in the space (which led to the Top Knobs Chareau collection).

Q: We saw your one requirement was “no laminate!” Did you face any other design challenges during the remodel?

We wanted a kitchen design that was timeless: modern but not trendy. This kitchen should fit our tastes and lifestyle – but also future homeowners as well. My specialty is Asian cooking, but we didn’t want the kitchen design to be too Asian inspired. We ended up adding the Asian touches with a Happy Buddha statue carved from a piece of bamboo that my parents hand-carried from China (sits on top of the cabinet) and a Chinese hand-painted silk piece that we framed and hung on the wall. The rest of the kitchen is clean, simple, yet elegant and refined.

“The classic, beautiful design of the Top Knobs handles finished the look of our kitchen,” exclaims Jaden Hair.

 

Q: As a chef, I’m sure you have specific needs to create the perfect kitchen environment. How did Top Knobs help create that?

The classic, beautiful design of the Top Knobs handles finished the look of our kitchen. It was also one of the very last items to be installed and it really did give the space its final “ta-da!”

Each knob and handle is so sturdy and solid. Top Knobs has taken such great care in craftsmanship and I expect their product to last a lifetime!

Q: What is your favorite part of your new kitchen?

​That’s such a hard question! The gardener in me says, “the compost!” but the girly girl in me says, “the kitchen jewelry!”​

Hear from the kitchen designer, Susan Serra’s perspective in part one of this blog post.
