5. Large Home Improvement Stores for Kitchen Cabinet Hardware
Large home improvement retail stores such as Home Depot, IKEA, Lowe’s and Rona, sell a variety of cabinet hardware including handles, knobs, hinges, slides and other cabinet accessories.
While these big box stores are sure to have available inventory in-store and online, you may be limited when it comes to their product selection.
Buying from large home improvement stores does have its benefits, however. If, for example, one of your handles or knobs becomes damaged, you know you go online or walk in-store and replace the same product off the shelf.
If you’re not picky about your hardware choices, this could be an ideal avenue for you.
In contast, if you’re particular about your cabinet hardware, the local hardware specialty stores listed above might be ideal for you. They’ll have a larger variety of hardware selections to choose from and a deeper knowledge of the cabinet hardware industry for a more hands-on approach.
