Where should you put handles on kitchen cabinets?
Cabinet knobs are placed opposite of door hinges. On wall cabinets, knobs are usually placed 2-1/2” to 3” from the bottom corner of the door. On base cabinets, they are placed 2-1/2” to 3” from the upper corner of the door. If your drawer is 24” or wider, you may choose to place a second knob.
Should drawer pulls be centered?
Most drawer pulls are centered on the drawer fronts, but if the cabinet you’re working on has two or three drawers the same size and one larger one at the bottom, install the bottom knob (or pull) higher than the center of that drawer front. Install it so all the knobs on the cabinet are spaced evenly.
Where do pulls go on Shaker cabinets?
Placement on Shaker Cabinet Doors Lower corner: Likely the most common location for shaker cabinet knobs and pulls is the lower corner on the side of the cabinet that opens. These will usually be around an inch from the edge of the door, with both horizontal and vertical pull options depending on your style.
Where do you put handles on tall pantry doors?
Pantry Doors- On a pantry door, or other tall cabinet doors, you should place the knob or pull opposite the hinges at a height based on your comfortability in using it. This should be about elbow height and will most times be the middle of the door height.
Do you put handles 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.
Should I use pulls or knobs on cabinets?
There are no strict rules to follow when choosing whether to select a knob or a pull or both. One preference is to use knobs for all doors and pulls for all drawers. For any large door such as a pantry and any pull-out door (including pull-out base pantries or trash pull-outs), use a pull.
Where should drawer pulls be placed?
For both upper and lower cabinets, the pulls should be installed vertically 2 ½ – 3 inches in from the corner of the door. For drawers, they should be installed horizontally in the center of the door. While there is no hard-set rule for the size of your pulls, consider using longer ones on larger drawers and cabinets.
What size pulls for 36 inch drawers?
Pulls 3-7 inches in length will sit the most comfortably on doors less than 24 inches tall. Cabinet doors 24-36 inches tall are best adorned with pulls 7-12 inches long, while cabinets taller than 36 inches such as pantries, built-in appliances and pullouts should be accompanied by pulls longer than 12 inches.
How wide should drawer pulls be?
There is no right or wrong size to choose, but we do recommend choosing pulls that have at least a 3-3/4″ center to center (the distance between the screw holes). This size looks pleasing on most cabinets, while still being large enough to grip comfortably. 5″ pulls are also an excellent choice.
Do you put hardware on Shaker cabinets?
This is the most common hardware placement on Shaker cabinets. Mix of Shaker Cabinets and Slab Style Option: When you have a mix of Shaker cabinets and slab drawers in your base cabinets, we recommend placing the pulls and knobs on the top ¼ of the slab and on the top rail of the Shaker cabinets.
Can you put cup pulls on cabinet doors?
Pulls are another versatile option that can be installed on both cabinets and drawers. For both upper and lower cabinets, the pulls should be installed vertically 2 ½ – 3 inches in from the corner of the door. Just make sure not to drill any holes in your cabinetry until your mind is made up!
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 you mix knobs and handles on kitchen cabinets?
Yes. You can mix knobs and pulls. It’s recommended to use pulls for cabinets that are higher up and knobs for lower style cabinets. Lower drawers that slide are typically fitted with a pull handle.
How do you decide on pulls or knobs?
While there is no set rule, we generally recommend that the pull length is approximately 1/3 of the cabinet or drawer width. Small Drawers that are 12” or less typically work best with a pull that is 3” to 4” long or a knob that is 1” in diameter.
