5 Hafele Furniture Handle Ideas for Your Next Renovation
#1 Idea: Dark Pewter Coloured Handles
Pewter is usually a mid-tone grey colour with a slightly cooler undertone. Pewter finished handles by Hafele are typically nickel plating on brass which has been dulled to simulate the metal alloy ‘pewter’. After, the desired colour can be applied, such as matte black as pictured on the right.
If you are aiming for a rustic feeling kitchen, you can integrate older looking aspects by selecting more ‘aged’ décor or hardware, such as dark pewter handles.

#2 Idea: Classic Brushed Nickel Handles
Brushed nickel continues to be a popular choice of hardware finish in many Australian kitchens. This soft and sleek finish goes with almost any cabinet colour and style, perfect to pair with stainless steel kitchen appliances.
#3 Idea: Antique Pewter Handles
Antique pewter gives a rustic feel that can add dimension to any space and can be perfect for a farmhouse-inspired or traditional Shaker kitchen.
The distressed finish of this handle would add character to a kitchen, and the darker colour can hide small marks, making it an ideal choice to conceal pesky fingerprints.

#4 Idea: Matte Black Handles
Matte black has always been a trendy finish to use in kitchens and other areas of the house. Its sleek, modern look can easily add contrast and can certainly make a statement.
#5 Idea: Textile Handles
If you are feeling truly inspired, why not check out Hafele’s textile furniture handles? They are available in multiple colours – champagne, black, brass, and antique brass. These furniture handles are textured on the surface, leaving you with a ‘warm’ feeling handle instead of the cooler touch you may expect from a normal metal handle.
