In recent years, gold and sleek silver hardware has been a staple in all the most Instagram-worthy kitchens. I’ve loved the trend as well, but oil-rubbed bronze hardware has caught my eye again. In a world where I don’t want to feel pressured to be “on-trend” anymore, I actually find this option very refreshing and timeless! As I plan out a dream kitchen, I’m going to go with oil rubbed bronze hardware because I love it and think it will always look classic – plus I feel like it’s the forgotten and underused so it will always be unique. Here are some of the most gorgeous examples of oil-rubbed bronze hardware in kitchens that will serve as major inspiration in your own home!

Imagine this with bright gold pulls. It would look a bit more garish in my opinion.
