Glass hardware is one of those unexpected and unusual ways to upgrade cabinets or drawers and create a dramatic new focal point for any room. Often during decorating bright colors are kept to small accent areas because they can be overpowering in larger amounts. Utilize the strength of blue by adding an elegant knob to your cabinets or drawers – this will provide extra hints of color without dominating the space.
