Building the Ultimate Green Kitchen

Replacing kitchen hardware is an easy and inexpensive way to make your existing cabinets feel new, even if they’re not. While the range of good-looking brand-new green hardware is limited, beautiful examples of vintage and antique pulls and knobs are easy to find. A quick search on eBay or a visit to your local flea market should easily turn up results. You can also shop sites like Historic Houseparts that specialize in deadstock hardware. For new hardware, look to Eleek or SpectraDécor.
