Decide if you want a knob or a pull
Rules don’t apply here! You can choose to have all knobs, all pulls or a mixture of both.
One preference is to have knobs for doors and pulls for drawers. If you have a large pantry door or pull-out doors, it tends to be more comfortable to use a pull.
Comfort and convenience will most likely your decisions for your kitchen cupboards hardware.
For example, opening a drawer using a pull allows:
- Added comfort, as you can use your whole hand instead of just a couple of fingers
- The drawer moving smoothly
- Your hand having better grip, especially if the drawer is particularly heavy
You can also choose to stick to either all knobs or all pulls. The use of all knobs was a fad in older kitchens before the variety we have today. Despite this, pulls are not only for the contemporary! Either style can blend into any kitchen design for a timeless look.
