Knobs and pulls are the finishing touch to your perfect custom cabinets! Not only are they imperative for functionality, but they can elevate your cabinet’s style and character. They also help to protect the finish of your cabinets as they prevent the oils from your fingers from transferring onto the actual finish of the cabinet.
First, you must determine whether you want a knob or a pull! The most common preference is to use knobs for all doors and pulls for all drawers. For any large doors, such as a door to a pantry or to a trash-can drawer, it is recommended to use pulls as they give a better grip and make it easier to open and close. When using pulls, typically horizontal pulls are used for drawers and vertical pulls are used for drawers.
Choose between square or curved style hardware! Square style hardware can still be round in shape with square contours. These are more contemporary. Curved style hardware has soft edges and more detail. These are more traditional or transitional. Certain style cabinets look better with a specific style of hardware, so make sure to explore your options!
Once you decide which style for your pulls or knobs, you can now pick a finish. This is where you can truly tie in the character and style of your kitchen to your cabinetry hardware. The possibilities are endless, as you can choose from multiple finishes to complement the rest of your cabinetry perfectly.
Now that you’ve considered all of these things, you are all set to choose which knobs or pulls will truly complete the cabinets of your dreams!
