Can you replace cabinet hardware?
With your holes already predrilled in the cabinet doors, simply line up your new hardware with the pilot holes on the front of the doors and secure into place with screws from the back. Use a screwdriver to tighten the screws. Repeat this process for each piece until they are all attached.
Should I use knobs or pulls on kitchen cabinets?
Should I use knobs or pulls on kitchen cabinets? Knobs can be the more comfortable option for cabinet doors because your hand rotates naturally as you open them. Pulls are a great option for drawers because your hand doesn’t have to rotate, and you can use more force underneath the whole pull.
Should cabinet pulls be vertical or horizontal?
The thing to keep in mind with cabinet pulls has to do with placing them vertically or horizontally. Usually for cabinet door pulls, we recommend placing the pulls vertically, making it easy to open the doors (again, functionality is key).

Can I paint my kitchen cabinet hinges?
Applying a coat of spray paint is an easy way to dress up old hinges. Refinishing your cabinets may mean that the color of the existing hinges no longer matches, and while you can always replace the hinges, it’s less expensive to paint them.
Should my kitchen cabinet pulls match my faucet?
Does cabinet hardware have to match your faucet? No. But, traditionally kitchens and bathrooms will match hardware finishes to the faucet to tie the finishes in the room together. Matching cabinet hardware to your faucet creates a cohesive look.
Do you put cabinet hardware on fake drawers?
I would recommend putting pulls on the dummy drawers it allows for consistency. Good design is always consistent. It will also give the illusion that these drawers are not fake. The idea of putting a minimal intrusive towel bar works well because then it will serve more for function then aesthetics.
