Cabinet Hardware help needed

AJinNHNovember 20, 2013

We're finally getting to where we can see the light at the end of the tunnel - this has been a very long project.

I'm now trying to find hardware for my kitchen cabinets. I'm looking for an oil rubbed bronze that is brownish, not black or gray. It can have gold undertones, but not red or copper hues. The pulls and knobs I'm considering are either Traditional or Transitional styles.

I'd also need appliance pulls in the same finish - style can be different, but similar.

Our light fixtures are Hubbardton Forge bronze (their 05 finish), so we're trying to stay in that range of ORB.

If anyone can suggest a quality hardware in those tones I'd be really grateful. Never knew there were so many different shades of ORB!

This is such a small part of this remodel, but it's not as easy as I thought it would be. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Have you looked at sun valley bronze or rocky mountain hardware?

Just some basic info:

Bronze is actually somewhat pink in its raw state. Most "oil rubbed bronze" hardware is actually brass underneath.

There are no standards for ORB, or any other decorative finish really, every company has their own version of it.

I would describe Hubbardton's 05 finish as antique brass. You might get closer by looking at antique brass hardware.

Hope this helps.
