Design Brief: Hardware Trends
We asked hardware specialist Rob Bragau from Distinct Hardware and Cabinet Solutions designer Kate Fales to tell us about this year’s most popular hardware styles.
Rob: Brass is making a comeback but in a non-traditional way. Clients have also been choosing a variety of brass colors and finishes for their projects that tend toward a modern look with lighter colors like honey bronze and contemporary satin finishes.
Rob: Matte black is also a very hot look at the moment. Manufacturers are taking notice of these trends, too – we’ve seen the launch of several new matte black and brass product lines this year.
Kate: I’m seeing alternative materials like copper and acrylic being used more. We’re also noticing a wider option of colors and finishes becoming available as manufacturers update their product lines.
Kate: I’m getting more requests from clients for contemporary pulls with clean lines and square shapes. I also have clients looking for colors like matte black and various tones of gold.
