Hardware Resources is unique in their treatment of the bathroom vanity, with a majority of their pieces strongly resembling repurposed antique furniture rather than traditional vanities. With dresser style drawers and pulls that hearken back to older, more elegant times, these pieces can easily turn your bathroom into a comfortable, opulent dressing room. The bulk of their vanities are solid hardwood, and many of them have intricate, antique style carvings. While most of their vanities allow the natural grain of the wood to show, quite a few of them are given an antique white finish entirely by hand for a simple, distressed look that enhances the appearance of age. Their collection also includes a few budget friendly MDF pieces with black or espresso finishes, but the hardwood pieces are truly the stars.
Hardware Resources´ mirrors run the gamut from simple square or oval wood framed mirrors to intricate, hand-carved frames that offer a stunning level of detail. Many of their mirrors are mated with their vanities, so the woodwork and overall aesthetic remains continuous between the separate pieces. That said, even their simple standalone mirrors boast the same level of craftsmanship and care.
Wood tends to feature pretty prominently in kitchens, and while Hardwood Resources doesn´t sell cabinets directly, they´re constantly finding ways to feature and highlight beautiful, natural wood in the kitchen while expanding usable work and storage space.
Space is always at a premium in the kitchen, and while you may not be able to expand your cabinets or counters, that doesn´t mean you can´t make a little extra space elsewhere. Hardware Resource´s kitchen islands come in a wide variety of sizes, styles, and finishes to fit just about any kitchen, and can add a significant amount of both counter space and storage. With huge butcher block tops and built in wine storage racks on some models, a good kitchen island can easily become a centerpiece of your kitchen, a place to gather, drink, eat, cook, and be merry without having to navigate crowded, undersized kitchen counters.
Sometimes it´s the littlest details that go the longest way. If you don´t have the time, funds, means, or desire to do a full remodel, you can still give your home a nice face lift by simply changing out your door knobs and drawer pulls, or adding a few little embellishments to your existing setup.
Knobs and Pulls
This is one of the places where Hardware Resources really shines. With well over a thousand different knobs and door and drawer pulls in almost a dozen different finishes, you´re sure to find something that fits your furniture, your decor, and your budget. And, really, you´ll be amazed at what a difference a knob can make - simply swapping the pulls on a vanity or set of cabinets can completely revitalize and update their look and feel.
Mouldings and Carvings
Hardware Resources´ decorative wood onlays, posts, feet, legs, corbels, mantels, and capitals are hand and machine carved embellishments that can be attached to just about any project - from topping off a cabinet or standing in as creative, antique-style drawer pulls - to add a little extra flair or functionality. They come in over a thousand designs, shapes, and styles, and a variety of unfinished wood, including alder, cherry, maple, oak, and rubberwood so they can be stained and finished to match your existing wood.
Hardware Resources Style
All of Hardware Resources´ collections appreciate, uplift, and highlight the natural beauty of hardwood. From the care they take hand carving and finishing each and every piece to the subtle hardware embellishments and intricate appliques, they embrace an aesthetic that´s been eroded by modular and modern style. So if you love the look and feel of wood, or long for a more classical or antique style, this is definitely the collection for you.
