A Kaiko Chic Life

When it comes to decorating, sometimes the beauty is in the details. As is the case with knobs, hinges, handles, and pulls. Think of them as jewelry, but for your furniture.

Bored of blah accents? Swap out (or refurbish) existing hardware for something a bit more statement-making. It’s an easy and inexpensive way to upgrade even the plainest of pieces (well that, and perhaps a fresh coat of paint).

Consider sprucing up a snoozy nightstand with vintage crystal knobs or add polish to a humdrum dresser with luxe leather pulls. And these versatile accessories can just as easily bring a room together. Coordinating hardware instantly transforms mismatched furnishings into a cohesive set.

Ready to give tired drawers and cabinets a well-deserved makeover? We’ve rounded up 10 helpful how-to's that demonstrate just how easy it is to take your furniture from ordinary to outstanding.
