It's Project Time

It's Project Time


It’s the time of year everyone’s busy planning projects, so we’ve put together some handy tips to make specifying your hardware easy.


 

Make sure your handle width is in proportion with your drawer width. 
We’ve taken the guess work out with a quick guide for our hardware: 

96mm drill hole centred handle will suit a drawer up to 600mm wide
128mm drill hole centred handle will suit a drawer up to 800mm wide
256mm drill hole centred handle will suit a drawer any wider than 800mm
(an alternative to this is putting two 96mm handles at either end of the drawer.)

 

There are no strict rules around matching your tapware and handles. Contrasting colours can give a great look. The kitchen above pairs our Burnished Brass Bamboo handles with a matte black tap and a chrome sink.

If you're going to match your handles with your tapware, it's important for your finishes and colours to match perfectly. We recommend looking to these popular brands — Astra Walker, Sussex, Perrin and Rowe and Brodware, as our finishes match their colour ways.

Lots of people ask us what the pros and cons are between Polished Chrome and Satin Nickel. Here's a little run down... Polished Chrome has a blue undertone, so gives a cooler feel. It’s the hardiest of all our finishes, so it’s best for coastal areas. It’s also reflective, so can leave finger marks. Satin Nickel has a gold undertone, so has a warmer feel. It features light brushstrokes and is lacquered so it won’t patina or leave finger marks. Style-wise, if you’d like your hardware to stand out, Polished Chrome is your girl, if not, go with Satin Nickel.
