Kitchen Cabinet Door Handles and Knobs

One of the biggest trends in kitchen design is centered around unique cabinet door handles and knobs. And it's with good reason—these seemingly minor elements give you a great opportunity to express your personal style and liven up the entire kitchen.

Before you decide on a style for your kitchen cabinet door handles and knobs, you'll want to determine whether you're sticking with the overall kitchen design, taking a slight turn in another direction, or attempting to create a distinct style contrast. For example, if your kitchen cabinets boast a sleek, modern design, you'll likely want to stick with angular or bar-style door handles and knobs that will reflect the kitchen's style. On the other hand, if your kitchen has a more antique or eclectic feel, you'll likely have more freedom to explore a range of door handles and knobs and express your personal style. Everything from hand-painted metals to knotted rope to vintage typesetting or monogramming has popped up on kitchen cabinet door handles and knobs recently, adding visual interest and fun.

If your cabinets feature intricate woodwork or a distinctly traditional design, you may prefer to keep it simple with classic, trend-neutral door handles and knobs.

Lastly, don't shy away from mixing and matching styles—especially when it comes to upper and lower cabinets. Using complementary but distinct hardware can create a great aesthetic.
