Choose Your Hardware Type
Choosing which type of hardware to use in your space - knobs, pulls, or both - can be overwhelming. We're here to help!
Let's start with the basics - what's the difference between a knob and a pull?
Okay, now let's dig into how knobs and pulls are used in different types of spaces.
In more traditional spaces, the general rule is knobs on cabinet doors and pulls on drawers.
That being said, keep in mind there are many use cases where this is not followed - baseboard cabinets (especially in kitchens and bathrooms) often use pulls, bigger drawers sometimes have two knobs on either end instead of a long pull, those small tiny drawers in your bathroom sometimes work better with a knob, etc etc etc. Don’t feel bound to anything!
In more modern or transitional spaces, you can use knobs and pulls interchangeably.
Many kitchens opt for a singular “all knobs” or “all pulls” look for visual simplicity and cohesion. You can also play with the orientation of pulls, placing them horizontally or vertically depending on the cabinet use.
At the end of the day, the knob and pull combinations are endless, and ultimately the choice is always yours. There’s actually no wrong answer here. It all depends on your aesthetic and preference.
Now, onto choosing hardware size!
