Modern Kitchen Cabinet Hardware Ideas : My Favorite Brass Hardware

I’ve been spending a lot of time this week focusing on a client project, getting the finishes narrowed down and finding the perfect modern kitchen cabinet hardware ideas for the cabinets that will be going in as part of this major renovation.  Brass fixtures and hardware have made a major comeback in the last few years and we are definitely going to find a way to incorporate some beautiful pulls and knobs as modern kitchen cabinet hardware.  I find it funny that we are replacing shiny gold hardware that is currently in this house that was built a few decades ago and is “so dated” with another form of brass hardware.  It just goes to show that trends will definitely come full circle.

I love the idea of using hardware as a way to bring trendier colors and finishes into a space because it is easy and inexpensive to change once you tire of the look.  From a little update like changing the knobs on a dresser, to a bigger project like updating your cabinet pulls and knobs to more modern kitchen cabinet hardware, it’s an easy update that won’t break the bank. Hardware is one of those often overlooked items in the house, but when you change it up, you will be amazed at the drastic difference it makes in your space.

If you are looking for the perfect brass hardware to update your kitchen cabinets, I have rounded up all of my favorites here for you.  Not all brass finishes are created equal, which means it can be a bit difficult to match different pieces since there are a range of sheens and colors of brass.  Pay attention to the type of finish…whether polished or unlacquered, satin or antique and stick with the same type of finish.  

A satin finish is a surefire winner for modern kitchen cabinet hardware.  Here are what I think are some of the prettiest brass hardware pieces on the market right now…in all different styles and price ranges.  There is something for every budget.  Affiliate links are included in this post.

I wanted to use brass in our home in Utah, but I wasn’t really sure I wanted it all over the place, so I worked it in to our kitchen, bathrooms, mudroom and laundry room with hardware and fixtures…things that are easily replaced when needed.

As you can see in the pictures above, I also mixed up the type of hardware in the laundry room.  I used cabinet pulls, knobs and bin pulls on the different types of drawers and cabinets I had made for this space.  Mixing up the different pieces creates a more interesting look on your cabinets as well.  More of a collected look. 

I can’t wait to show you the choices and the finished product for our modern kitchen cabinet hardware over at the Midway Modern Farmhouse!  Demo is kicking off this month and things are getting exciting!  I hope that these pretty modern kitchen cabinet hardware ideas inspire you to swap out your old hardware and try something new to refresh your kitchen cabinets in a flash.
