When trying to achieve the perfect look for your home, it’s only natural that you would spend a lot of time focused on wood furniture, flooring, and other major household items. But there’s one furniture product that should never be overlooked: hardware.

What is furniture hardware, you may ask? Hardware refers to the handles and knobs (which are also sometimes called pulls) that you find on wooden file cabinets, doors, and more. And while this furniture product can be easy to overlook, selecting the right hardware can ultimately play a major role in polishing your home’s overall appearance.

You may be surprised to learn that there are several varieties of furniture pulls available, but this is because each offers a distinct style. For example, while there are plenty of standard metal options, antique-styled or glass door pulls can give your wood furniture a unique, classic look.

When choosing hardware, it’s best to select an option that meshes well your existing cabinetry and furniture and will add to the overall appearance, rather than overshadow it. Contrast (such as selecting round hardware for your square furniture) can make your wood furniture stand out even more, but it’s important to remain consistent in your style choices. Doing so will create a top-notch look for your entire home.
