Understanding the Art of Hammered Cabinet Knobs and Pulls

When it comes to cabinet hardware, there are many styles and finishes to choose from. One popular trend that has been making a comeback in recent years is hammered hardware. But what exactly is hammered hardware, and how does it get made?

Hammered hardware refers to knobs and pulls that have a textured, dimpled surface created by striking the metal with a hammer. This gives the hardware a unique, handcrafted look that can add a touch of character to any kitchen or bathroom cabinets.

The process of making hammered hardware starts with a flat piece of metal, such as brass, copper, or iron. The metal is heated and then shaped into the desired form of a knob or pull. Next, the surface is hammered to create the textured, dimpled effect. This process can be done by hand, or by using a machine that repeatedly strikes the metal to create a uniform pattern.

Once the hardware is shaped and hammered, it is polished to give it a smooth, reflective finish. This highlights the textured surface, giving the hardware a distinctive look that sets it apart from other finishes.

While hammered hardware may look rustic and rough, it is actually quite durable and can withstand daily use without showing signs of wear and tear. This makes it a popular choice for homeowners who want to add a touch of vintage charm to their kitchens and bathrooms without sacrificing functionality.
