Your kitchen is one of the most important rooms in your home, and it provides your residence with plenty of benefits, functioning as the hub of your home, and the space in which you and your family congregate after a long day and nourish yourselves for the day ahead. Considering how important your kitchen is to the home, it is essential to make sure that your kitchen has all of the amenities you need. One of the most important pieces of any kitchen is the cabinetry. Choosing the right cabinets for your kitchen can truly transform the space, but choosing the right material is only half the battle. You’ll always need to decide on the right hardware for your cabinets as well! If you’re interested in learning more about how to decide which hardware to use, keep reading below for more information!
Pull or Knob?
One of the first decisions you’ll need to make is on the style of hardware. The two main styles of cabinet handles or pulls or knobs. Both have their perks, but ultimately you will need to decide on which option works best for your kitchen. Knob handles are small, requiring online your fingertips to use. They can be simple stainless steel, or they could be quite ornate, with a design etched into them.
However, knob handles are not always the easiest to operate, particularly if you have heavy pots and pans in your drawers that make them more difficult to open. In this case it is better to choose a pull handle that allows you to open the cabinet using your entire hand rather than your fingertips.
You can also use a combination of the top options, installing them where it makes sense depending on how you intend to arrange your pans and cabients!
Choosing the Finish
Another important question to address when installing new cabinet handles is what color do you want the hardware to be. This depends on both what material you chose for you cabinets, as well as the existing appliances in your kitchen. Perhaps if you have a kitchen full of steel or chrome appliances, you’ll decide that you should have handles that match that aesthetic. Alternatively, you could try to match the appliances to your cabinets aesthetic. If you choose lighter cabinets, you could choose a gray or black handle, or vice versa. It is truly up to you as a homeowner to decide which style fits best for you!
