Decorative kitchen hardware can make or break a custom kitchen.  First off, the proper style of hardware must be chosen.  If it’s a custom contemporary kitchen, the hardware will need to be clean and sleek.  If it’s a custom traditional kitchen, the hardware will likely need to be more decorative and have some movement.  One needs to be cautious about choosing the right size pieces and not overwhelm the cabinetry.  The hardware for any custom kitchen should be there to compliment the look of the kitchen, not be the “star” of the kitchen design.
