Top Knobs Completes Two Kitchen Renovations on HGTV’s Brother vs. Brother

This season on HGTV’s Brother vs. Brother, Jonathan and Drew take on San Francisco’s real estate game. Each brother buys a house sight unseen, to completely remodel throughout the season. Each episode, the brothers compete by renovating the same room in their respective houses. Their renovations are judged anonymously by industry professionals, and the winner is rewarded while the loser is stuck with the renovation clean up. Both brother’s design teams requested Top Knobs as the decorative hardware to serve as the finishing touch of their designs.

The second episode of the season focused on kitchens. Drew worked on transforming his dated 1970’s space into a modern California kitchen, while Jonathan took a risk transforming a dingy kitchen into an eco-chic, family friendly space.

Jonathan’s eco-chic kitchen featured a natural bark wall, an oversized island, high ceilings, and unusual black cabinets with contemporary Top Knobs fixtures. The Top Knobs Modern Metro Tab Pulls in flat black added a touch of sophistication and style to the kitchen.

Jonathan also converted an otherwise useless space near the kitchen into a small yet stylish powder room. Here, he used the Top Knobs Hopewell collection to complete the space.

While foundation and sewer line problems put Jonathan over his original budget, the remodel was still a success. He explains, “This is one of the best kitchen renovations I’ve ever done. The unique black cabinetry provided a sleek backdrop for brightly colored accents.”

On the other hand, Drew’s modern California design featured beautiful vaulted ceilings, a concrete dining table, and floating shelves. However, the wow factor in this kitchen came from the beautiful counter tops, appliances and natural wood cabinetry.

The wood cabinetry and lower cabinets were made complete with Top Knobs decorative hardware. With so many different styles and colors used throughout the space, Drew opted for a Modern Square Bar Pull to pull the design together.

Leanne and Steve Ford of HGTV’s Restored by the Fords were brought in as guest judges for the kitchen showdown. While they admitted it was a very close call, Jonathans classic yet modern kitchen design and unique black cabinets them over. For his win, Jonathan was awarded an exclusive Star Wars and Lucas Films tour, while Drew was left with the renovation clean up.

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.
