One of the easiest ways to update a kitchen is to change the cabinet hardware. When I paint my kitchen cabinets, I'm also going to switch out the hardware.
While brass is current rage, I'm sticking to silver tones because of my aluminum backsplash. The current cabinet pulls are silver knobs. While functional and easy, they're boring. My thought is to either get a more interesting knob or change it up completely and use ring pulls. Which one is your favorite?
