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.
How do I know what size knob to buy?
You’ll need to know the bore hole’s diameter to get the right sized knob. Measure across the circular hole at its widest point, i.e. start at the bottom of the hole and pull the tape until you hit the top of the hole. There’s your diameter. Write down the number of inches that you see on a small notepad for reference.
Should I use knobs or pulls on kitchen cabinets?
