Whether you want to update your kitchen cabinetry or are installing new bathroom vanity cabinets, there are some things you should consider when choosing your drawer pulls. Drawer pulls are not only a functional element for your cabinets, they also add some decoration as well. So what should you consider for your drawer pulls? Read on to find out.
The Difference Between a Knob and a Pull
When choosing hardware for your cabinet drawers, it is important to know the difference between a knob and a pull. A drawer pull, also called a handle, is secured to the drawer face by two or more screws. When choosing a pull, it is important to think about the number of screws as well as their placement when ordering replacement hardware. A drawer knob uses only one screw to mount to the drawer face. If you have a knob on your existing drawer, it is important to stick with the knob style or you will be able to see the existing holes behind the new pull.
Style of Drawer Pulls
When considering drawer pulls, there are a few basic style categories for you to choose from: transitional, contemporary, and traditional. The traditional style of hardware is inspired by historical designs and architectural details. These pulls are popular with traditional looking cabinets. The contemporary style of drawer pulls include pulls that are minimalistic in features and have sleep lines and sharp angles as well as modern finishes. The transitional category blends these two styles into a unique shape and finish.
Shapes and Sizes
Pulls are available in a variety of shapes and sizes. But when ordering your drawer pulls from WalterWorks Hardware, it is important to think about the size and shape of your kitchen cabinets as well as the hardware. The general rule for sizing your drawer pull is that it should be approximately half the width of the drawer face. This will ensure it is not too conspicuous for your cabinet and not too small to be functional.
So whether you are choosing a pull bar or a bin pull for your drawers, it is always important to consider the style, size, and shape of your cabinets. For more information, on choosing your pulls, call or visit WalterWorks Hardware today!
