“If you can’t find it at Locks and Pulls, you probably won’t find it.” This might sound a little over confident, but when you’re known as a premier source for decorative door, bath and cabinet hardware you can show a little swagger.
From the smallest apartment to luxury hotel suites, starter homes to spectacular executive and celebrity mansions, Locks and Pulls has thousands of door, bath, and cabinet hardware selections in stock that will satisfy the basics, as well as the most discriminating of tastes.
Locks and Pulls was founded as a family business in 1986 and has continued to operate in that manner for the last 35 years. John Hensley and his staff have operated as a family-oriented business and have built long-standing relationships with builders, designers and homeowners. These high standards don’t stop at ownership, the entire team believes that Locks and Pulls is successful and has been able to open a second location, because of their relationships and commitment to service and selection.
As John moves closer to retirement, Kansas City can continue to rely on Locks and Pulls. His son, Adam, will be leading the company with the same high standards while updating the shopping experience and expanding their already unmatched selection of home hardware.
“Hardware shouldn’t be hard, with so many options to express personal style and make an artistic statement, we believe hardware is actually fun. Both locations offer over 1,500 cabinet knobs and pulls and 50 door hardware options, most of which are in stock, plus there are over 20,000 additional items available for order from over 250 manufacturers around the world.” — Adam Hensley
Kansas City’s builders and designers are confident in directing their customers to Locks and Pulls. They trust that their customers will receive exceptional service at both locations and have showrooms that offer classic upscale product lines as well as unique artisan pieces. Baldwin, Classic Brass, Emtek, and Rocky Mountain Hardware are a few names customers will recognize but they believe customers will also enjoy the options from newer decorative lines, such as Addison Weeks, Lisa Jarvis and Armac Martin.
The pandemic demanded change in everyone’s life. Perhaps one of the most significant ways people felt the impact was in how they viewed and used their home. This shift resulted in a sharp increase of home improvement and remodeling projects. Locks and Pulls followed every guideline and created a safe shopping environment while also helping customers re-imagine their living space to bring a little comfort and satisfaction to their home.
When it comes to decorative hardware for your home, Locks and Pulls should be your first (and likely only) stop. Since hardware is ALL THEY DO you won’t find their selection, price and expertise anywhere else.
Cabinet hardware finishes are important, and Hensley is seeing a strong demand for matte black and satin brass finishes in recent years, along with mixing and matching a variety of finishes and metals in decorative hardware products throughout the home. Many homeowners are pivoting from the traditional design styles, to more contemporary styles promoting clean, sharp lines.
