Upcycling is a trend that’s here to stay. Lockdown has sparked a love of DIY, and, conscious of the effects that our cycles of waste are having on the planet, many are finding thrills in making do and mending. Plus, there’s nothing more satisfying than getting something previously unloved or unused back in business.
Even if your decor or DIY skills are still very much at entry level, there are easy swaps and hacks you can do to revive your space - and you don’t need to be a homeowner to do them either.
Painting furniture, hanging pictures and changing handles on your cupboards and wardrobes can be quick and easy ways to give your home a new lease of life, without the outlay of a total home renovation. Small changes can make a big difference.
When it comes to knobs, as in life, there are a variety to choose from. There is a colossus selection from which to pick, from brass animal themes to modern marble.
To help narrow the selection (and avoid awkward search engine mishaps), we’ve rummaged through the virtual haberdashery to bring you the nicest, coolest and chicest knobs that will give your furniture, cupboards and doors a little lift.
Get ready to browse the most PG knobs list on the internet.
