When we first started out in this business, hardware, though a necessity, wasn’t necessarily something our clients got jazzed about. Obviously, doors needed handles and cabinetry in kitchens and bathrooms required knobs and pulls but the selection at that time was relatively limited. Fast-forward to today and it is no longer a simple question of brass or silver-toned hardware, as there is a tonne of variation within those two categories alone! Now, hardware tends to be a big part of the conversation with our clients right from the get-go, as it plays a crucial role in the final look and feel of a decor scheme. To help us through this process, we like to work with ADH Fine Hardware, a supplier of high-quality door and cabinet hardware in Toronto.
Founded in Toronto in 1968, with a second location in Montreal, ADH Fine Hardware is a family-owned business. Their selection not only boasts incredible quality but also an astounding range. From timeless pieces to of-the-minute trends, we’ve sourced a vast variety of hardware for clients with ADH. On a recent visit to their Avenue Road showroom, we had a chat with President, Luke Shearer, to learn more about some of the latest trends and the best manufacturers to get the look.
Although we have enlisted the help of ADH for countless UB projects, the photos above, from one of our most recently completed projects, really showcase some of the best brands in the biz. A huge impact can be achieved with small details like a custom pink-quartz knob from Matthew Studios! For more details on this project, visit our previous post.
For those who don’t have the plans or budget for an extensive build or renovation project though, new hardware alone is worth considering. The right knobs, pulls and door handles can be an incredibly effective method of updating existing cabinetry or elevating budget-friendly pieces. Just ask the team at our sister company, Homekin!
Regardless of which route you take, home finishes are our love language and we are always more than happy to help. To discover the different ways of incorporating jewelry in the form of new hardware into your home, get in touch!
