Style Savant: Transforming Interiors with Textured Hardware

Diamond pull with backplate cabinet design

Changing up your interiors doesn’t always call for a full on renovation. Sometimes, all it needs is one small change – like swapping out your cabinet hardware to liven up your space. For example, a touch of texture on your hardware doesn’t just add visual interest – it also elevates and adds depth to cabinetry.

For an instant refresh, here are new takes on knobs and pulls that create architectural impact in the home. From bamboo inspired to shell shaped hardware, these textures will bring effortless character to your decor.

Bold brass

Brass hardware with creative texture and design undoubtedly shines in any cabinetry. Armac Martin’s Grove collection, a collaboration with British interior designer Sophie Paterson, honours the organic beauty of bamboo. The exquisitely crafted pieces feature elegant silhouettes, a tactile feel and a sophisticated design that stands out in any luxury setting.

Opting for bold brass adds interest to classic details and interiors in an unexpected yet understated way. The Grove collection includes cabinet pulls, t-bars and knobs in Armac Martin’s signature brass finishes, including Paterson’s favourite – satin antique satin lacquered.

Unique shapes

Cabinet hardware is considered the jewellery of the home as it adds personality to your space. With hardware continuing to be bolder and trendier in the coming years, consider mixing new styles and shapes, like the Aberdovey collection from Armac Martin, into your cabinetry. The refined scallop curves and ridges are reminiscent of designs from the Rococo era and evoke a classic coastal feel.

A mix of knobs, pulls, latches and cup pulls in one space gives it a cosy, collected vibe. Simply keep the finish consistent to pull the look together.

Patterned black

Black kitchen accents provide a sleek and stylish look without overpowering the space. Create more dimension with texture – like this two tone kitchen that utilises knobs and pulls from Armac Martin’s MIX collection. The Diamond Pull with Backplate features machine knurled intricate diamond shapes that curve around the ends of each pull, creating a raw diamond texture that’s both striking and luxurious.

You can also add depth with patterned hardware from Armac Martin’s Harold collection. The hand finished hammered surface mirrors the earthy weather aged patterns found on rock and stone, with a raw appearance that adds a powerful luxe look to kitchens, living rooms, bathrooms and beyond.

Adding texture doesn’t just prevent your space from looking one dimensional, but it also adds warmth and tactile connections to your decor. Just make sure that your chosen accents work with your design concept. If you’re designing a contemporary space, opt for textural pieces that work with a modern theme. Ensuring that your elements are cohesive creates a more multidimensional look that is pleasing to the eye.
