Unique Rustic Cabin Door and Cabinet Hardware Helps Create a Getaway from the Everyday

Summer is fast approaching and for many this means a trip to their summer getaway cabin to ready it for the vacation season ahead. For some this may entail more than removing the layer of dust that gathered over winter.  Their to-do list may also include renovation projects designed to refresh the look of their favorite summer retreat. Cabin interiors and exteriors often feature rustic themes designed to take their owners worlds away from the hustle and bustle that they left behind. The cabin’s interior may include art and accent items reflecting the region’s flora and fauna. For example, a Minnesota lake cabin may be decorated with figures of moose and pine trees whereas the interior of a Florida beach house may feature figures of pelicans and palm trees. Items that reflect the region’s history are also common decorative pieces found in a cabin’s interior and exterior. For example, western items such as horse and cowboy figures, Indian blankets, horseshoes, and even barbed wire accents are commonly included in the design of ranches throughout the southwest.

Cabin door, cabinet and other home hardware choices are also often very different than those commonly found in homes in the city or suburbs. As with the choice of d├ęcor, unique hardware is available in a wide variety of rustic themes. Bronze, copper and forged and cast iron are commonly used to produce hardware that offers not only a unique look but also unique textures making these metals popular choices for interior and exterior hardware for cabins of all types.
Lustrous brass and chrome hardware looks out of place in a cabin’s rustic appearance, but bronze and copper naturally patinas over time to add to a cabin’s rustic character.  Mission Metalwork’s line of solid cast bronze and copper and cabinet hardware and house numbers feature unique tumbled textures that enhance the hardware’s rustic appearance making their hardware ideal for cabin renovation projects.
Hand forged iron is another excellent choice for cabin renovation projects and Artesano Iron Works produces some of the most unique forged iron hardware available. With so many designs available, Artesano Iron Works collection of hand forged iron cabinet hardware, door hardware, and home hardware is likely to have unique options for your cabin whether it is has a southwestern theme or a classic northeastern wilderness theme.

Antique Revelry also has a diverse collection of cabinet hardware.  Antique Revelry's collection includes many cabinet knobs and drawer pulls made of natural bronze and cast iron, however, it is their forged iron and forged copper drawer pulls that  have been the most popular with those renovating cabins and lodges.
