The hardware Aristokraft sells includes knobs and pulls for cabinet doors and drawers. The hardware comes in various styles, shapes and materials to complement kitchen designs ranging from casual and contemporary to rustic and traditional.
Metal drawers and pulls come in pewter, chrome, nickel, bronze and brass. Pewter hardware includes antique pewter cup pulls and cabinet knobs, flower twist knobs and birdcage twist pulls, while chrome knobs and pulls are of a traditional black design. Brushed-satin nickel knobs and pulls come in a variety of shapes and styles. Bronze knobs and pulls include styles such as German bronze, oil-rubbed bronze, traditional Venetian bronze and Venetian bronze birdcage, while the brass knob option is polished. Aristokraft hardware is also available in wood, such as maple and oak.
As the final touch to an array of cabinets, hardware selection and positioning must complement the overall pattern and decor. Often a combination of knobs and pulls are necessary. Other components in the room influence the selection of hardware materials, and the size and style of the cabinet doors and drawers influence hardware placement. For instance, cabinets that have doors with raised center panels need hardware placed across from the flat part of the center panel. For drawers less than two feet wide, one pull or knob is sufficient, while larger drawers may need two pieces of hardware each.
