Decorating a new home or updating an existed one may seem like along and tedious process while it is happening, but after it is all finished, it's worth it. Therein lies all the major concerns such as flooring or bathroom walls, but then there are also all the little details that make all the difference; small things like choosing crystal drawer knobs.
The details are what really make a house overhaul stand out. While there are different types of knobs and cabinet hardware, most of them are what the general population would use and not necessarily what some people actually want. Keep in mind, that regardless of what type of drawer knob you actually end up using, you need to make sure it will do its function properly for the design of you drawer; in other words, they must be compatible.
OK, so let us look at some of the other options available when it comes to drawer knobs:
Aluminum - This shiny metal is good for places like bathrooms and kitchens, where the humidity will be higher, since it does not rust. IT can also accent any chrome styled cabinet or drawer sets.
Plastic - These literally come in a wide selection of designs and colors. More popular in the kids' rooms, coming in letters of the alphabet, stars and planets, and animal shaped designs. They also work well in areas such as the garage since they take a lot of abuse and clean off easily.
Wood - These will generally blend right in with the furniture it is attached to. Wood knobs are common in the office, and sometimes the bedroom. Wood is not a good option for areas of high humidity.
Brass - Stepping up the class here, brass is popular for classic Victorian style furniture pieces.
Crystal Drawer Knobs – These are a newer member in the knob family, and a classy one. Technology has made glass more affordable for everyone. These can also compliment Victorian style furniture, and are best use in areas where guests will frequent most, such as the family, dining, and living room.
