Go mid-century modern with hex pulls
Get a full-on farmhouse look with oversized bar pulls
If you’re a big fan of the farmhouse look, you’ll be inspired by Carrie Higgins of Making Lemonade, who examined a few different hardware options before selecting the beauties shown above. The finished space is giving us major Joanna Gaines vibes. Try the rustic-looking bar pulls below if you want a similar farmhouse-inspired look.

Turn up the vintage sparkle with glass knobs
Feeling a little glam? Take a cue from blogger Diane Henckler and opt for shiny glass knobs that will add a bit of sparkle to your kitchen. Diane paired hers with silver drawer pulls, and the combo works wonderfully together. This look is perfect for the vintage or antique lover. A similar style below will give you the same vibe.

Go simple, but with a gold twist
Sometimes a simple pop of gold will do the trick, as was the case in Kelly Larkin’s Chicago kitchen. The dainty gold knobs look lovely when paired with bright white cabinets and accented with classic ginger jars, making for the perfect preppy space. Try the brushed brass knob below in your kitchen.
