For over four decades, Wilson & Bradley have been assisting clients with unique fittings for their kitchen and bathroom designs, ranging from large-scale manufacturers to individual homeowners.
“Our uniqueness in the market is connected to our family values, which prioritise personal attention, reliability and a deep understanding of our customers' needs,” says Tom Page, Product Development Manager at Wilson & Bradley.
“We're not just responsive to market changes; we anticipate them, ensuring our offerings remain relevant and sought-after.”
A cabinet's hardware should complement the kitchen's overall design and colour, helping to create a unified and stylish space in the house.
“Hardware can be used to accentuate the style of your cabinets. For example, if you have modern kitchen cabinets, you can choose hardware with a sleek and contemporary finish. If you have traditional kitchen cabinets, choose hardware with a more ornate finish,” says Page. “It’s a great way to add personality to your kitchen, so don’t be afraid to have fun with it.”
Hardware can also upgrade the functionality and style of your cabinets, from adding Scandi-style timber handles to modern push-open cabinets to selecting hardware that is more comfortable to open and close the cabinets.
“We’ve seen a rise and sudden trend in wooden finishes in the past year or two, notably in the field of wooden handles as a part of our Furnipart timber handle range. These timber handles act as a statement piece and the finishing touch on your cabinetry and contrast well with white, dark or even wood cabinets,” says Page.
2. Black Finishes
“For a sleek and modern aesthetic, black hardware, available in various finishes including cast iron, complements contemporary and traditional kitchens with white or dark cabinets,” says Page.
“Lighting conveys emotion in cabinetry,” says Page. “LED strip lighting can easily be incorporated into the design of an existing kitchen. Our L&S LED strip lighting can be used for accent lighting of kitchens, shelving, stairs and other locations throughout the home.”
4. Waste separation
“Our clients are becoming more eco-conscious, and we are seeing an increased trend in them wanting more flexibility in dividing their waste into general waste, recyclables, glass and food scraps,” says Page.
“Our Wesco Pullboy range provides this flexibility, offering options with two or four buckets in one bin configuration.”
When asked about the most versatile and timeless hardware design and colour, Page explicitly recommends sleek and minimalist designs. This design, characterised by clean lines and simple shapes, effortlessly blends modern and traditional kitchens.
“Their timeless elegance allows the overall kitchen design to take centre stage, creating a space that stands the test of time,” says Page.
Choosing the right cabinet hardware and kitchen accessories is no longer merely a functional decision but an artistic one. With Wilson & Bradley's extensive expertise, designers and homeowners can embark on a journey to transform the kitchen with confidence, ensuring that every detail reflects one’s personal style while elevating life’s culinary and family experiences.
