I like to think of cabinet hardware as jewelry for your kitchen. Nothing dresses a kitchen up more than handles, knobs and pulls. Cabinet hardware can makeover the look of a very drab kitchen. I have had my share of experience with hundreds of different lines of cabinet hardware. I love Rocky Mountain for the rustic look and their white bronze finish. And I love the unique mix of cabinet knobs that Anthropologie has. But I am often bored by the home owner’s choice of cabinet hardware. I see too many of the same top knobs handles everywhere. So when it comes to hardware let me introduce you to the creme de la creme – The Nanz Company.
The Nanz Company produces some of the most exceptional (and expensive) hardware that I have every been able to lay my eyes on. I have used this hardware in only one of my projects thus far, holding it in your hand feels like heavy pieces of silver. The quality, detail and material is what makes The Nanz Company stand out from the rest.
Nanz offers a variety of finishes to choose from then just the standard chrome, satin nickel, and oil rubbed bronze that gets oh so boring. I love options. Dark Oxidized Bronze, Medium Pewter, and Nanzcraft White Bronze are a few of my favorites. Break out of the mold of doing the standard finishes and add something unique to your cabinet doors and drawers.
While I am obsessed with options I am also obsessed with detail. When Nanz started to offer engravable knobs in multiple fonts and monograms the wheels in my head started turning. You can now get personalized with your family’s monogram on your cabinet doors. This truly is kitchen jewelry at it’s best.
Emblematic Hardware dates to the time of the french monarchy when kings would appoint a royal hardware maker who would be in charge of manufacturing hardware for the royal residences that would be personalized with the family’s initials, crest, or other symbolism. These would look great changed out on a baby’s dressing table with their precious initials accessories the furniture. Or next to some initial tea towels in a family kitchen. The options are endless – and you know I love options.
