Giving cabinets a facelift

Changing cabinet hardware is an easy way to give a tired or outdated kitchen a fresh new look. Cliffside Industries offers a wide variety of products to give you the most options when trying to replace your hardware. According to Kitchen and Bath Design News‘ (KBDN) June 2011 issue, major remodeling projects are out. More and more consumers “are choosing to perform ‘room lifts’ — small upgrades to personalize a room” (p. 11); this is a perfect example of how just a small change like cabinet hardware can update an entire space.

Finishing the job

With ten signature finishes to choose from, Cliffside has a color to suit any need. From a variety of brass-toned hues to a selection of chrome and nickel finishes and multiple oil-rubbed bronze selections, Cliffside captures the imagination with a large selection throughout our solid brass line. For a more rustic look, three finishes are available in our rustic Sedona series.

Compare and contrast

When choosing a color for hardware, consider the color of your cabinets. Many customers, when choosing hardware, will bring a wood sample along so they can evaluate how the colors will coordinate. With medium-toned woods, getting a close color match is sometimes preferred, while with dark or light stains, contrast makes a bold statement — consider, for example, the warm, shiny tones of polished nickel against an elegant dark walnut cabinet.

Sparkle and shine

KBDN indicates that a new focus in decorative hardware are pieces with “more sparkle than seen in recent years” (p. 60). Cliffside Industries accommodates everyone’s need to shine with our line of refined European lead crystal. Designed and shaped by Old World artisans and assembled in the U.S.A., these pieces are elegant and sophisticated, lending a classic new look to any kitchen or bath.
