2020: The Summer of Luxury Powder Room Design

Stop leaving the powder room for last! You know what we’re talking about. From TV design shows to boutique home designers, the world is flooded with video and images of opulent master bedroom, living space and office designs. And these are wonderful – but don’t forget the ‘little gems’ in your home.

Peter Salerno Inc. focuses on custom kitchen and bath design for good reason – these are two rooms in your home where you want to feel pampered, relaxed, and bathed in beauty. And while kitchen and master bath designs are stunning, all too often the powder room gets overlooked.

Expert Tips on Finishing Hardware | Making Handles, Pulls + Knobs Shine

Finishing hardware on your cabinets, drawers and vanities. No, don’t yawn. These features can be fabulous when done creatively!

Peter Salerno Inc. (our parent company) recently released a set of videos on their official Instagram account which highlight the unique new ways you can feature knobs, pulls and handles to dramatic effect in your kitchen design. From metallic colors to over-sized hardware, glittering crystal to intriguing textures, these features are an exciting option to add elegance to your design in unexpected ways.

Let’s take a look at these videos, which outline 3 expert design tips to make your kitchen design’s finishing hardware truly shine.

3 Expert Design Tips To Make Finishing Hardware Shine

1. Don’t be afraid to turn your hardware into jewelry.

“Hardware is the jewelry of [your] cabinetry,” Peter Salerno says on his official Instagram account. “Add something to make yourself feel like that Hollywood movie star each day!” From glass to Swarovski crystal, add a little ‘bling’ to your cabinet or vanity’s finishing hardware to add a sense of luxury to your everyday life.

One of Peter Salerno’s go-to suppliers for a dash of glitz is Richelieu Hardware.

2. Color + texture = results.

“Adding color into your kitchen makes it go from a standard space to an extraordinary space,” Peter Salerno advises. “Play with textures and finishes on small details.”

If you’re opting for white, gray or natural wood tones for your cabinets, drawers or vanity, then bold color and texture choices on their pulls, knobs and knobs can heighten their drama and “curb appeal”.

3. Play with oversized pulls, knobs, and handles.

“We have been over-sizing pulls on pot drawers and knobs on cabinets,” Peter Salerno remarks about a hot luxury trend in current kitchen design. Over-sizing handles, pulls and knobs adds a bold, eye-catching bit of flair to an accessory that can often be mundane.

The combination of oversized metallic textures on the pulls and knobs in the Instagram video above can’t help but draw your focus. Why not experiment with an over-sized representation of the metallic color (gold, silver, bronze, copper, etc.) that best complements your kitchen design?
