Upgrade Your Kitchen with These 5 Ironmongery Trends

So, after you’ve been scrolling through Pinterest and all its kitchen remodel ideas posts, you start starring at your own kitchen and thinking how much you loved it when you first moved into your home. It was a brand-new, beautiful kitchen and now it’s just a kitchen, and you want to have that feeling again. 

What if I told you that a simple change of the hardware in your kitchen will give it a fresh new look? Trust me! If you are looking to change things up a bit without spending too much money, I’ve put together a list of 5 ironmongery trends to give your kitchen a small makeover.

Matte Black.

Matte black is back and bigger than it has ever been. Ironmongery Experts, an architectural ironmongery family-run business, has published an article all about black ironmongery and why it is so popular. As they say, “black ironmongery is effortlessly classy” and I couldn’t agree more! You can choose to replace your kitchen cabinet handles for matte black designer cabinet handles or even your kitchen door handles for matte black knurled lever handles, or even go all out and splash matte black on your kitchen cupboard and choose a brighter colour for the cabinet handles.


Knurled door handles and cabinet handles are the perfect way to add some texture to your kitchen interiors. For instance, antique brass knurled cupboard knobs and satin nickel knurled cupboard knobs are sleek and modern designs that will suit any kitchen! 

Mixed Metals.

Mixing and matching metal finishes might be a daunting idea of people who’ve never done it before, but it is a great way to add visual interest to your kitchen. You don’t have to go all out and choose two very different metal finishes if you don’t feel comfortable with that just yet. The British Style Society recommends choosing a dominant metal and adding up to two other metals as accent tones for “a more balanced look.”

Polished-silver Finishes.

“Kitchen finishes come and go, but polished silver is forever” mentions this article on Better Homes & Gardens. Polished-silver finishes are upscale accents which will look stunning in both traditional and modern homes. You can find this finish on cabinet handles, such as silver knurled t-bar cabinet handles, light pendants, such as silver Harborne light pendants and even door stops, including polished chrome cylinder door stops.

Gold tones.

Champagne gold, rose gold and metallic gold are go-to tones to give your kitchen a bit of luxury. These will offer a breathtaking contrast on dark kitchen cabinets and will look incredible when combined with other metal finishes. If you are looking for something special for your kitchen, these polished brass knurled t-bar cabinet handles will give your kitchen texture and a pop of colour!
