    Introduction

    Welcome to Industrial Farmhouse Co.'s guide to choosing the right hardware for your industrial farmhouse furniture. The hardware you select can significantly impact the overall look and functionality of your pieces, making it essential to choose wisely. Here at Industrial Farmhouse Co., we offer a varied selection of made to order, locally-sourced hardware to match any style you are after. In this article, we'll explore different types of hardware, materials and finishes, and how to select the best options for various furniture pieces. Let's dive in!

    Understanding the Industrial Farmhouse Style

    Industrial farmhouse style blends rustic charm with industrial elements, creating a look that's both warm and edgy. The style often features raw materials like wood and metal, distressed finishes, and a mix of vintage and modern elements. Hardware plays a crucial role in achieving this aesthetic, adding the perfect finishing touch to your furniture.

    Types of Hardware for Industrial Farmhouse Furniture

    1. Knobs and Pulls: Knobs and pulls are essential for opening drawers and cabinets. In industrial farmhouse design, look for hardware with a rustic, vintage, or industrial feel. Options include:

    2. Metal Knobs: Choose from distressed or brushed finishes.

    3. Cup Pulls: Ideal for drawers, providing a classic yet industrial look.

    4. Leather Pulls: Add a touch of warmth and texture.

    5. Handles: Handles can add character and style to your furniture. Options include:

    6. Bar Handles: Simple and industrial, perfect for modern farmhouse pieces. Our Bermuda Handle offers a unique design that will add that equestrian flair to any door.

    7. Bow Handles: Provide a vintage look with a rustic charm.

    8. Ring Handles: Add a unique, decorative element.

    9. Brackets and Supports: Brackets and supports are crucial for shelves and tables. Consider:

    10. Metal Brackets: Add an industrial touch with raw or painted metal. At Industrial Farmhouse Co., we have brackets and supports that fit any decor style in your home.

    11. Wood Brackets: For a more rustic look, opt for distressed wood.

    Materials and Finishes

    The materials and finishes of your hardware can dramatically influence the overall look of your furniture. Popular choices for industrial farmhouse hardware include:

    Materials

    1. Iron: Sturdy and rugged, perfect for a vintage industrial look.

    2. Steel: Sleek and modern, ideal for a contemporary twist.

    3. Brass: Adds warmth and an antique feel.

    4. Leather: Offers a unique, tactile element.

    Finishes

    1. Matte Black: Sleek and versatile, complements various wood tones.

    2. Brushed Nickel: Modern and understated, great for a subtle look.

    3. Antique Brass: Adds warmth and a touch of nostalgia.

    4. Oil-Rubbed Bronze: Rich and elegant, perfect for adding depth.

    Choosing Hardware for Different Furniture Pieces

    1. Cabinets and Dressers: For cabinets and dressers, consider the size and style of the piece. Smaller knobs or cup pulls work well for delicate, vintage pieces, while larger bar handles or metal knobs suit more robust, industrial designs, like our Sagamore Hill Pull.

    2. Tables and Desks: Tables and desks benefit from sturdy hardware. Consider using metal brackets or supports to enhance the industrial feel. For desks, add practical yet stylish handles or pulls to drawers.

    3. Shelving Units: Shelving units require strong, supportive brackets. Metal brackets are ideal for an industrial look, while wooden brackets offer a rustic charm. Ensure the brackets are robust enough to support the weight of the shelves and their contents. Our L Style Brackets are great options for shelves if you are looking for a more minimalistic and traditional style.

    4. Doors and Drawers: For doors, choose hinges that complement the overall style of the furniture. Exposed hinges add a decorative element, while concealed hinges provide a streamlined look. For drawers, consider cup pulls or leather pulls to add texture and interest.

    DIY Tips for Installing Hardware

    Installing hardware can be a rewarding DIY project. Here are some tips to help you get it right:

    1. Measure Carefully: Ensure all hardware is evenly spaced and aligned.

    2. Use a Template: Create a template to mark where each piece of hardware will go.

    3. Pre-Drill Holes: This helps prevent wood from splitting and ensures a secure fit.

    4. Secure Hardware Firmly: Tighten screws properly to ensure durability and functionality.

    Conclusion

    Choosing the right hardware for your industrial farmhouse furniture can elevate your space and tie together the overall aesthetic. By understanding the different types of hardware, materials, and finishes, you can make informed decisions that enhance both the look and functionality of your pieces. At Industrial Farmhouse Co., we're here to help you every step of the way in creating a beautiful, cohesive home. Happy decorating!
