Dress up a project with new hardware


Whether you’ve spent weeks on a project or you’re looking for a quick tweak to refresh something you already have in your home, the right hardware can be the perfect finishing touch.

There are so many ways to dress up a project by swapping out the hardware. From the bedroom to the front hall, and everything in between, here are a few ideas to get you started ...


A dresser refresh:

A solid dresser can last a lifetime, so there’s no need to kick it to the curb if you get sick of how it looks or find the style no longer suits your decor. Paint the dresser so it looks fabulous in your room again, and -- here’s the important part -- replace the knobs with something really special.

Just picture your dresser painted a soft blush pink with these Richelieu Eclectic Glass Knob, or painted a deep charcoal grey and accented with these stunning black Richelieu Contemporary Crystal Knobs.


A jewellery organizer:

If the surfaces of your bedroom furniture are always strewn with necklaces and bracelets, there’s an easy -- and attractive -- way to keep them organized and tangle-free.

All you need is a simple board dressed up with a bit of paint or stain -- the length depends on how many pieces you’d like to display -- and a collection of pretty knobs to serve as jewellery hooks.

We’re digging  Richelieu’s Eclectic Glass Knobs, an antique-inspired knob with sweet speckles which would add the perfect, delicate touch to any bedroom decor.


A media cabinet:

If you have a cabinet beneath any TV, chances are you’ve spent a lot of time noticing it. It’s literally hanging out beneath the thing you’re staring it! What if we told you your existing cabinet is fine, but it could be made over in a matter of minutes -- making it feel brand-new all over again?

Take the time to unscrew the cabinet’s existing hardware and replace it with something fresh. Richelieu’s Glass City Collection features an ultra-modern glass and brushed nickel knob that would be perfect in a high-tech spot like a media room. We also like the futuristic feel of Richelieu’s Contemporary Acrylic and Metal Knob. The simplicity of this square design will take your media cabinet straight into the next millennium.


Your closet doors:

You may not want to take the time to paint your closet doors, but what if you livened them up by replacing those dull builder-basic knobs that came with the house?

White doors instantly look more sophisticated with Richelieu’s sparkly Contemporary Crystal Knobs, and you can draw attention a set of black closet doors by choosing Richelieu’s vintage-inspired, glass speckled knobs.

Once you’ve replaced the hardware on one set of closet doors, we promise you’ll be back to do the rest. It’s such an easy change with an amazing payoff.
