Every homeowner has a style that he or she wishes to portray.  From sleek, frameless cabinets with minimalist pulls to ornate inset cabinets with classic knobs, doing research on home remodeling and interior decorating sites such as Houzz will help you get a sense of what will work best to achieve the look you want. In addition to hardware styles, there are also many hardware finishes available. Depending on the color of your cabinets and the overall style of your kitchen, you have many options. Choose from materials like brushed nickel, chrome, oil-rubbed bronze, and antique brass. Don’t be afraid to spice things up with brightly-colored ceramic, glass, or jewel-adorned knobs.

Size and Placement

Some people prefer knobs on doors and pulls on drawers, while others opt for a more consistent look with pulls on all of the cabinetry.  Whatever your preference, many hardware companies group items into “collections” with differing styles to complement each other. These collections often include both knobs and pulls in various sizes that will help you customize your space. When planning for knobs and pulls, be sure to measure the drawers and cabinet doors to determine where the hardware will sit. Some drawers that have recessed-panel or raised-panel fronts may need special hardware sizing to fit properly. Don’t forget that if your large appliances have cabinet front panels. they will require heavy-duty pulls that are manufactured specifically for such applications.
