How to Pick the Right Knobs and Pulls for Your KitchenCapitol Design Build
Decorative hardware is the perfect way to add a finishing touch to your kitchen. It can be both functional and stylish. But with so many options on the market, how do you choose the right ones for your space? Here are a few things to consider when selecting knobs and pulls for your kitchen.
Knob or Pull
Do you want a knob or pull? This is a matter of personal preference. Some people prefer pulls because they are easier to grip, especially if you have limited mobility in your hands. Others prefer knobs because they are more aesthetically pleasing. Ultimately, the choice is yours.
Square or Curved?
Once you’ve decided whether you want a knob or pull, you need to decide if you want square or curved hardware. Some people find that square hardware looks more modern, while others prefer the softer look of curved hardware. There are also options that combine both square and curved elements.
There are many kinds of decorative hardware on the market, from simple and understated to ornate and over-the-top. It’s important to select pieces that complement the overall style of your kitchen. If your kitchen is very modern, then choosing vintage hardware would not be right. Conversely, if your kitchen has more of a rustic feel, then choosing very contemporary hardware might not make sense either. Instead, opt for something in between that will bridge the gap between the two styles.
Size and Positioning of Handles
When it comes to size, there are two things to consider: the width of the handles and the distance between them. The width of the handles should be proportional to the size of the doors they will be mounted on—too small and they will look out of place; too large and they will dwarf the doors themselves. As for the distance between handles, there should be at least 2 inches (5 cm) between them so that they are easy to grip without being too close together.
Style of Hardware
There are many different styles of cabinet hardware on the market today: traditional, transitional, contemporary, rustic, eclectic, etc. Select pieces that complement the overall style of your kitchen while also considering the most comfortable options for ease of use.
Cabinet hardware is available in many different materials including wood, glass, metal, ceramic, plastic, etc. Again, it’s important to choose pieces that complement the overall style of your kitchen as well as any other rooms in your home that flow into it (such as a living room or dining room).
Cabinet hardware comes in many different finishes including brushed nickel, oil-rubbed bronze, stainless steel, polished brass, matte black, etc. It’s important to choose a finish that complements the overall style of your kitchen as well as any other rooms in your home that flow into it.
