These iron-look pulls from Richelieu Hardware will make a statement in any kitchen.

How to add the WOW factor to your kitchen reno

Cabinet door hardware is like jewelry to your kitchen or bathroom cabinets. If the necklace doesn’t match the outfit, it can ruin the whole look! It’s so important to take your time when choosing door hardware. With all the money that is spent on a kitchen renovation, the final wow factor can be less than stellar if the wrong pulls are chosen. People often forget to budget in or under-budget for cabinet hardware. Pulls and knobs can run from $5 to $250 each.

Victoria Specialty Hardware at 477 Boleskin Rd. has Victoria’s greatest selection of cabinet door hardware. There are thousands of pulls and knobs to choose from with thousands more available in their supplier’s catalogs. It’s such a fun place to go and browse for any conceivable style, finish, size, and shape. Their staff has years of knowledge in all decorative, architectural and designer hardware. They carry close to 45 different suppliers of door hardware, so if it’s available, they have it. I found this great block design pull (shown, right), which comes in six finishes starting at $22.95 each. Awesome for a flat slab door.

Richelieu Hardware, 616 Hillside Ave. is local supplier to the trade only. The public is welcome to go in and look at their selection, but they have to purchase from a retailer. Locally, Slegg Lumber or The Cook Street DO It Centre carry their products or can order it.  Richelieu is a Canadian company which offers a huge selection of knobs and pulls, their web site is easy to navigate for choices as well. I spotted these iron look pulls (above) in different shapes and instantly loved them. They range from $15-$50.

Remember to have fun with your pulls and knobs, you can always replace them in few years and get a whole new look.
