PULLING POWER

The right han­dles can make or break your kitchen de­sign. “Hard­ware is like jew­ellery for the home,” says Carl Sriber of Mother of Pearl & Sons Trad­ing. “Play it safe by all means, if that works for you, oth­er­wise dare to be dif­fer­ent.” Pro­por­tion is im­por­tant. A large kitchen might need size­able han­dles which would look out of place in a smaller space. Also, con­sider the prac­ti­cal­i­ties. If you have small chil­dren with sticky fin­gers, pol­ished me­tals will be prob­lem­atic. Carl sug­gests keep­ing your choices con­sis­tent. “As a rule, don’t try to mix too many dif­fer­ent styles,” he says.
