Designer hardware in Little Rock

Quality, designer hardware can change the feel of a room. You can take a room from vintage, with brass or gold fleur de lis-shaped knobs, to modern/eclectic, with cast iron drawer pulls and towel rungs.

Any designer can tell you, the small details can make a world of a difference. That’s why we recommend high-quality, trusted hardware. We carry the following brands.

Choosing designer hardware

The right choice of hardware can make an ordinary room come alive.— No pressure! The vast selection of designer hardware leaves a world of options available to the average contractor or DIY enthusiast. However, with so many options to choose from, designers find it difficult to narrow down their choices.

The best place to start is to identify the purpose and possibly the theme of your room. Do you want guests to feel relaxed, impressed, or maybe fascinated? What kind of room did you have in mind when you began your project?

See the hardware in person before you make a final selection. At the end of the day, you want this hardware to make your room seamlessly operational. Feel the sturdiness and comfort of each piece. You’d be surprised at how different each selection feels.

This is why we have a full display of our designer hardware at Kaufman by Design. Visit any of our locations to see the pieces in person.

If you don’t know where to begin, start with us. We’ll help you narrow down your options by determining which kinds of hardware suits you the best.

Adding designer hardware

While we can offer you some guidelines to help you decide which designer hardware pieces to choose, we don’t have any rules. Older homes were designed with a strict matching-hardware policy. Today, we mix and match to our heart’s content.

Finished projects

An older home remodel design idea was to make everything match, including the hardware. While this is still a perfectly valid design theme, it is not a requirement. You can feel free to mix and match various metals, but just make sure they contrast enough so that it looks intentional. You can also vary the actual design style of the hardware too.
