Welcome To Italik Metalware
Picking the Right Furniture Hardware Fittings
The furniture hardware in our homes is like the
invisible genie. From the small nuts and bolts to
the bigger pull-outs and deadbolts, these are the
pieces that put together our house, put the
different elements together, give them a shape,
attach them to the house and then put it all
under a lock and key! These are the little pieces
that are holding together the bigger structure
and keeping it all secure. Obviously then we
must take a little care to pick the right
furniture hardware fittings for our property.
While the basics, like nuts bolts and hinges will
largely be decided upon by the carpenter, other
visible pieces will need out input. This is
because the visible fittings are not just about
function. These fittings have a very visible
aesthetic impact. These little details can make
all the difference when it comes to creating a
Here are some of our tips Make a list This is
always a great tip when shopping for the home,
even if it is to buy hardware! Make a list of
every piece you need and where it will go. This
is important not just because you do not want to
run out of latches for the last door, but because
that last latch might just be the last one in
that design! You do not want to rush to the store
at the last minute only to realise that they are
no longer carrying your line.
Invest in the best We don't necessarily mean
that you need to rush out and buy the most
expensive brand around. Instead, look for a
material that will last the test of time or the
best and give you the best value for money.
Certain materials like stainless steel, brass and
porcelain are considered the best in style,
function or looks. Try to always look for the
best in your budget. Do not be fooled into
looking for the cheapest. The best will always
give you value that will last much longer.
Location Where the furniture hardware fittings
will go does make a lot of difference. Some areas
of the house are more susceptible to wear tear or
corrosion. For instance, bathrooms have a high
moisture content, kitchen fittings can get greasy
and the backyard will be exposed to more than one
corrosive element. It is perfectly acceptable to
switch to a different hardware that is suited to
these special locations.
Check the working Always check the working of
the pieces before you buy them, especially when
it comes to doorknobs, deadbolts, locks and
latches - hardware that involve movement. Is the
knob moving smoothly? Can you turn the key with
ease? A less than smooth action is a matter of
concern. It means that there is a fault
somewhere. In most cases, these little faults
blow up to be major headaches in no time.
Sync with your style For some people it is
important to confirm to an overall style of the
house. Getting the hardware right is the kind of
little detail that makes for interesting decor
statements. Fortunately, today we have a number
of furniture fittings manufacturers in India who
are experimenting with new styles and materials.
This means that you are bound to find something
that blends with your style. For instance, look
for ceramic pull-out for drawers if you are
designing an ethnic-styled home.
Looks do matter Furniture hardware fittings are
visible parts of your furniture and their look
will contribute to the overall look of your
furniture and by extension, the house. So, make
sure that you actually like the way they look.
This is why we recommend a personal choice even
if you have a carpenter building the rest. You
want a design that appeals to you and which looks
attractive. You can even try experimental designs
to bring a little edge.
Ease of availability Although there is much to
recommend personalised hardware fittings, from a
practical viewpoint it would be wiser to look for
standard easy-to-buy hardware. This is because
you can easily buy a replacement in case of any
faulty part. If you do go for specially
commissioned pieces, make sure you buy plenty of
spare. Conclusion Furniture hardware fittings
add to overall look of our house. So, invest in
the best, check that they are in fine working
order and buy pieces that appeal to your own
style sense.
