Kitchen Cabinet Pulls
Are you considering kitchen remodeling ideas, options and solutions
The most common term for pulls and handles on kitchen cabinets is "hardware," but you shouldn't feel like they have to be made of metal. Unique designs made from wood, rope or plastic can liven up your kitchen as well.
One element that can help guide your decisions regarding kitchen cabinet pulls is the overall design of your kitchen. If it's a sleek, modern design, you'll likely want to stick with angular or bar-style pulls that will reflect the kitchen's style. If, however, your kitchen has a more eclectic, vintage or antique feel, you'll likely have more freedom to explore unique cabinet pull styles and express some personality. For example, a recent trend is to incorporate hand-painted kitchen cabinet pulls in a variety of styles, from vintage typesetting or monograms to stylish logos or designs.
Alternatively, if your cabinets feature intricate woodworking or a distinct design, you may prefer to keep it simple with more traditional knob-style cabinet pulls, available in a variety of materials, colors and finishes.
Lastly, don't be afraid to mix and match styles when it comes to kitchen cabinet pulls—a common and effective method is to use one style for low cabinets and drawers, and another style for high cabinets above the countertops.
