We love an easy home improvement project, and one of the simplest ways to make a big change in your home with minimal effort is to swap out the hardware on your cabinets. (It’s also a really easy way to makeover an old dresser or nightstand!) The straightforward task can completely change the vibe of your space, particularly if you spice things up with some statement pulls. And the best part—if you’re living in a rental, it’s an easy enough temporary change that will transform your entire space.
Whether you're lost where to begin searching or looking for some inspo we’re here to help point you in the right direction: these stores sell all the pulls, knobs, and handles you’ll ever need in a huge range of styles and price points.
Here are the best places to buy hardware to transform your space.
There was a time when Anthropologie only sold clothes, but it now offers a robust home collection that captures the fashion side’s boho personality with a dose of mid-century modernism, a splash of Art Deco, and even a touch of Scandi-cool. Beyond its furniture and decor selection, Anthropologie sells adorable hardware, from pulls and knobs to door knockers and toilet paper holders.
While some of the pieces are simple and elegant, a fair number of them have sculptural forms perfect for those looking to make a big statement with their hardware. Consider the cheeky Penny Squirrel Door Knocker, for instance, or the elegant Cecily Door Knob.
On a bit of a budget? Wayfair offers an extremely wide selection of hardware, just like Perigold (their sister company) but at a more wallet friendly price. And as with Perigold, you can sort your search by style, from industrial or glam to sports or Western—yes, seriously! So no matter what type of hardware you’re looking for, we’re pretty sure Wayfair will have it.
While Pottery Barn might not have the largest collection of hardware out there, you know you’ll find a well-curated selection at the ole-reliable brand. Its offerings are split into a few categories including modern pulls made from brass, nickel, or bronze; classic pulls with a dimpled surface in bronze, brass, chrome, or pewter; and more antique styles. There are also a few surprising outliers, like the Branch Hardware inspired by nature.
One of the things we like most about Pottery Barn’s products is that the majority of them are Fair Trade Certified, meaning that workers along the entire supply chain are treated well and compensated fairly.
If you’re not entirely sure of your style, a good place to start is luxury retailer Perigold, whose immensely impressive collection of hardware spans all sorts of design aesthetics. You’ll find everything from wrought-iron farmhouse-style pulls that look as if they’ve been pulled from the nearest antique market (spoiler alert: they’re actually brand new) to sleek and simple brass or stainless steel fixtures.
But that doesn’t mean Perigold skips out on having a little fun—just take a look at the novelty pieces like the Great Outdoors Rainbow Trout Bar Pull. What we love here is that you can sort by design style, making it easy to figure out what you actually want.
What doesn’t Etsy sell these days? From handcrafted goods to vintage pieces, the online marketplace pretty much sells anything your heart could desire—including all manner of hardware. Etsy is a little harder to sift through than some other retailers, simply because of the vast range of products it sells, so you’re best off going in with a few keywords in mind.
For example, if you're interested in painted ceramics pulls, search for “handpainted hardware for cabinets” to find gems like these blue-and-white knobs by Knobking. But that’s not to say you can’t come across some impressive pieces of hardware by simply scrolling through a search for “cabinet pulls” too.
Edgecliff Pull in True Blac
Schoolhouse Electric is “dedicated to the preservation of American manufacturing,” creating home pieces from lighting to hardware that will hopefully become “a new generation of heirlooms that inspire people to create unique, meaningful spaces in which to live and work.” Sounds pretty good, no?
The company’s hardware selection skews on the more modern and minimalist side of the design spectrum, which is perfect for those who want a clean but not boring look. Just check out the stunningly simple Edgecliff Pull in True Black or the Pacific Appliance Pull in Satin Nickel, which elevates a plain pull with a subtle hexagonal form.
The home decor brand Rejuvenation specializes in recreating vintage pieces with an ever-so-slightly modern bent. As for hardware, that translates to timeless pieces that are understated yet extremely luxe in craftsmanship. Take the West Slope Cabinet Knob, for instance, whose ridged form was inspired by Northwest Modern architect John Yeon, or the Blake Cabinet Knob, which takes an architectural quality on its own with its facets.
Rejuvenation’s products have somewhat hefty price tags, however, so definitely set a budget and take note of price tags before you fall in love with a $50 pull that you need at least six of!
As you might expect from a brand that has the word “hardware” in its name, Restoration Hardware does, in fact, have a myriad of pulls, handles, and knobs. If you need a cohesive hardware collection for different parts of a room, this is the place at which you’ll want to shop. Its hardware offerings are divided by collection, each with several products in the same aesthetic vocabulary. For example, the Camden Crystal Collection makes use of crystal and geometric forms, while the Strand Collection has a sturdy, industrial vibe.
Like CB2 furniture, the home decor brand’s hardware is modern, beautiful, and relatively reasonably priced. We’re particularly drawn to the sculptural pulls and knobs, such as the mesmerizing Aster Marble Ball Knobs and the Monastera Knob, which we expect might already be a big hit with plant lovers.
But CB2 also has more neutral, timeless hardware, like the Polished Nickel Square Handles and the Hex Polished Brass Handles, if you’d like your pulls to blend in rather than stand out in your kitchen or bathroom. In either case, you’re guaranteed to end up with a well-designed product that’s sure to liven up any space.
Buster + Punch
Didn’t know that a super high-end home hardware brand (or, excuse us, home fashion brand) exists? We wouldn’t blame you. Buster + Punch’s pulls are just a bit over budget for many renovators—some cost more than $150. But if you’re in the market for luxe hardware that is worth the extravagant splurge, this is certainly the place to come.
Buster + Punch sells its pulls and knobs in just five finishes: Black, Brass, Burnt Steel (which has a mesmerizing blue-purple-yellow ombre effect), Smoked Bronze, and Steel. And though they’re exorbitantly priced, they’re actually quite mellow in their forms, meaning they probably won’t come across as gaudy in your home in any way.
