With a multitude of colors, materials, and finishes available, you will be sure to find the perfect hardware to match your bathroom cabinetry. Many hardware designers offer each style in a variety of options, allowing you to select a design that matches your tastes first, giving the time to choose the details later. To get a true sense of the hardware that will complement your bathroom cupboards, consider using the same materials that currently exist in your bathroom, and visit a showroom to compare. It is always to good to have some hands on experience prior to selecting the handles and hinges that are right for you.

Choosing your materials

With all that is available, you can approach this with a couple of different strategies. First, decide what item in your bathroom you want you cabinetry to compliment. Take inventory of the colors and materials in your bathroom itself. What is the color or metal type of the other bathroom fixtures?

If your bathroom already has copper pipes, you might want to consider a brass knob or pull with a copper finish. Many large decorative hardware companies offer enough finishes to match all metals in any condition. This is often the easiest way to find a match for those of us with a strong attention to detail.

If you choose to explore hardware to match the tub or tile of your bathroom, first, identify the exact shade of the enamel if possible, and decide whether you want the hardware to blend in or create a contrasting statement. There is a huge selection of hand painted and simple enamel handles to choose from. When considering hinges, a good hinge choice can be found in invisible interior hinges. If you prefer the hinges to be seen, opt for a simple iron that will not detract from the enamel detailing.
