Nobody wants to be another face in the crowd. We all want to stand out somehow, whether it’s for our fiery hair, a brilliant wit or keen sense of taste. When decorating, this is even more relevant. Who wants to walk into their neighbor’s house to find the exact room setup, accessories and color scheme as their own newly renovated space? No one. The key to standing out in the crowd is individuality. Anyone can order an Amerock straight bar pull and make it work in their kitchen, living room or bathroom. The trick is to find really unique pieces that others wouldn’t think of (or wouldn’t dare to try) using. Here are a few of the bolder, brighter and more original pieces and collections that you can use to ensure that your home revamp really stands out.
From festive displays to the butcher, the baker and the candlestick maker, Notting Hill cabinet hardware brings new definition to unique.

They play with shapes, designs and images in a way that no other company has been able to yet. The images conjured by this distinctive collection vary from majestic royalty, tiaras and all to rustic fairies and forest forays. Either way, Notting Hill hardware stirs the imagination and the emotions.
With exciting shapes such as elephants, leaves, fruits and insects, Notting Hill cabinet pulls and knobs offer extensive designs with uniquely detailed artwork and precision as well. Factor in some bright colors, gemstones, and breathtaking filigree work for even more exclusive style. Notting Hill also works with colors fabulously. Their ingenuity manifests itself in many ways from a light wash on the entire design to a specific area highlighted in bright, vivid colors, or even combinations like rich woods and finely detailed metals.

Betsy Fields follows suit with the same idea of combining two winning features. A more limited scope, Betsy Fields cabinet hardware has a nautical theme, and is done in the same pewter fashion as the Anne at Home collection. These knobs and pulls would work well in any bathroom or in a sea-faring bedroom theme.
Hafele is another company that offers more than just your average homeowner’s cabinet hardware.
