Designing a space that reflects your personality and style can be challenging, but choosing the right handles can make a significant impact. Handle styles are constantly evolving, and in 2023, we will see some exciting trends emerge. From tactile textures to bold brass hardware, there's something for everyone. Discover some of the latest handle styles that will elevate your space and make it truly unique.
Create visual interest and depth by using a diverse range of textures within your design. A dramatic colour choice and exposed brickwork pair beautifully with delicately etched hardware. Matte Black Knurled Bar and T-Bar handles add an industrial chic twist whilst classic design staples like Aldana’s shaker door style and timeless Calacatta Marble worktops effortlessly blend to balance the space.

For a polished look, opt for a timeless finish like chrome in classic styles to complement your furniture choice. The lustrous effect of the knobs, cup handles, and D-handles reflects the playful colour combination of Pantry Blue and Porcelain, inspired by the home’s coastal surroundings. Incorporate natural materials such as oak and wicker to balance the design and complement Winslow’s real woodgrain.

Create a minimalist haven with slab doors, integrated appliances, and a colour matched handleless rail system. Less is more in this compact space, keeping fuss to a minimum with a streamlined design. The graphite handleless rail takes a back seat allowing Zola Matte’s smooth finish and Tavola’s rich horizontal woodgrain to take centre stage.

Combine modern style with a classic monochromatic palette for a contemporary yet timeless feel. The clean lines of the D-handles mirror Dawson’s sleek design whilst the darker Matte Black shade subtly contrasts with the Graphite cabinetry. Dark Terrazzo Marble effect worktops and splashback with varying hues of grey complete the look seamlessly.

Add a contemporary edge to a classic design like Winslow by tearing up the rulebook on co-ordinating metal finishes. Create dimension in your space by pairing contrasting colourways like traditional chrome with on trend satin brass. Balance the polished metals with earthy textures such as stone and oak for added warmth.

Add warmth to cool, dramatic colour palettes with bold brass hardware. With an antique finish and criss-cross texture, our knurled bar and T-bar handles contrast against the modern lines of Aldana’s design. The rich yellow undertones balance the striking contemporary colour palette adding a luxurious finishing touch.
