Cabinet hardware includes pulls, knobs, and latches. Think of them like a watch on your wrist – functional yet beautiful. Hardware adds the final punctuation to the statement your cabinets make.
Pulls tend to be longer and bigger than knobs. Since your hand wraps around the pull, it provides greater leverage for opening and closing, making it ideal for drawers with heavy items and large doors. Lengths vary from around 1” to over 30”, meaning you have plenty of options for your cabinets, drawers and appliances. Consider the projection measurements, which tells you how far the pull protrudes from the cabinet. A longer projection allows for bigger hands and saves your knuckles from rubbing against cabinets. Projections range between ½" to 2”. Popular shapes include cup handles, bar pulls, rectangular, and curved.
Knobs are smaller and designed for fingertips rather than palms. Shapes for knobs consist of square, rectangular, round, simple, detailed, beveled, artisanal, and even translucent styles. Knobs have projections ranging from ½" to 1 ¾", though it’s not as important as a pull’s projections.
Latches are a quick way to secure loose doors while adding a rustic touch. They’re perfect for cottage and farmhouse kitchens. Latch styles range from simple to ornate, with materials like solid brass, stainless steel, nickel, gold, chrome, bronze, antiqued finishes, transparent acrylic, and matte black.
How to Update Kitchen Cabinets Without Replacing Them
If new cabinets aren’t a feasible option yet, you can take some steps to revitalize and extend the life of your current cabinets.
Replace or Add Parts
As glides and hinges get older, smooth motions becomes squeaky, rough, or parts may break altogether. Upgrade old hinges and slides with new versions to restore effortless motion and operation. If you’re tired of being woken up on Saturday mornings from cabinet doors being slammed, add bumpers to the corners to dampen sounds and prevent banging and upgrade to soft-close hinges.
Add or Update Hardware
Cabinet pulls and knobs are an affordable way to upgrade the look and feel of your cabinets without having to redesign the entire room. Styles range from modern to vintage, from simple to ornate. Try a different finish. Change from knobs to pulls. Try a completely different design style for a new aesthetic.
Older cabinets often don’t stay closed when you shut them. To solve this problem, add a beautiful finish by installing latches to keep cabinets secure so they don’t awkwardly hang open. These work well on wall, base, and tall cabinets.
