Glass cabinet knobs are a great way to add vibrancy and color to any room in your home. Glass knobs, in their many styles, were one of the first items to be produced in America during the nineteenth century. Originally the production of glass cabinet hardware required extensive manual labor as each knob needed to be cut, sanded and finally polished. With the invention of the glass press machine these knobs could be mass produced and quickly replaced the traditional cast and stamped metal hardware in the United States.
Glass cabinet knobs are timeless and welcome addition to any home. These design elements exemplify simplicity and beauty. Glass cabinet knobs come in a wide variety of designs and colors and can be incorporated easily into many architectural styles. From classic Victorian pressed glass patterns to Art Deco and Modern designs, glass knobs are a versatile way to redecorate.
Many glass cabinet knob designs are produced today and this allows you to incorporate their patterns into your kitchen, bedrooms, bathroom and more. These glass knobs can transform a boring home into a showplace – but be sure to follow a few simple steps. First, use glass knobs and pulls throughout your for a more unified theme. Second, replace older and worn down furniture knobs with traditional glass knob styles. Note: The use of glass knobs will tie the look together for you. You can also incorporate glass into other areas of your home such as the lighting and doorknobs to further unify your theme. Use decorating magazines or ask an interior designer or other design expert for additional help if needed. By using glass knobs through the entire house you can vary the color or design – you do not need to use the same knob on cabinets, furniture, or drawers.
