Perhaps you’ve heard this bit of wisdom before, but it is worth repeating: Swapping out standard cabinet knobs for something of your own choosing can have major impact. It is a small, subtle detail, but it makes a huge difference in the overall feel of the room. Personalized knobs make your space appear unique and purposeful. They add a touch of fun, color, sophistication – whatever you want! The agate knobs on the dresser-turned-nightstand above are a perfect example. And this rule applies to many things, from door knobs, to kitchen cabinet pulls, to dressers and nightstands. I once swapped out the builder’s-special wooden doorknob on my Manhattan rental apartment closet for a charming green porcelain knob from Anthropologie and it took the room from generic to charmingly romantic. In fact, I’ll go so far as to say that a knob swap is the easiest home improvement project you will ever complete. So the next time you are looking for a quick fix, check out the knob selection at Anthropologie, World Market, or even your nearest Home Depot to see how you might be able to add a bit of personality to your space.
