Get a handle on it – Jewellery for your joinery.

Kitchen design is not what it used to be, it’s bigger, better and has more bells and whistles than a new car. With more families choosing to congregate around the kitchen bench for family meals and with such a strong emphasis on entertaining at home the focus on a great kitchen or joinery design is huge. It was only a few years ago that the beloved ‘all white, handless’ kitchen was the most popular design scheme in interiors, but now more than ever we’re seeing moodier colour pallets, and clever mixes of textures and materials that give joinery designs maximum wow factor.

A great way to introduce a little pop of luxe and make your joinery stand out is through your door hardware.  Not only are handles a brilliant practical device, making even the heaviest of pot draws glide with ease, there’s a huge range out there that will allow you to add strong design accents through these clever little catches.

BUT finding the perfect handle is a really tricky task. There’s not a one-stop shop for handles – so we’ve scoured our little black book of interiors to bring you an edit of all the cool handles we love. Whether you’re going for bold accents in black, pretty pops of brass or warm tones of natural oak – we have the handle for you!

We’ve bundled our top picks into 3 categories to make your scrolling easy – warm, luxe and black. Hopefully this will help you on your own specifying journey and have some fun adding another cool element to your kitchen!
