Your cabinets play a very important role in your household. They allow you to improve the overall appeal of every section of your house, and you have a way to keep all of your stuff in a very accessible location. And as part of your cabinet hardware, you should also keep in mind the way you choose the placement of the knobs and pulls. In this post, kitchen remodeling pros from i Remodel & Design share some things you should keep in mind.
The pulls or knobs that you choose will play a vital role in the overall look of your cabinets. This is why you should think about the color, style and size of your cabinet handles. Most of the time, we tend to choose knobs and handles that are of contrasting colors, so as to make it easier to locate the handle even without proper lighting.
There are various ways a cabinet can be placed in your household. They can go overhead or under your counters. Bathroom remodeling pros explain that depending on where your cabinet is located, you will also need to consider the best knobs and pulls to use for the whole set, along with the ways you can place them on the cabinet doors.
You will also need to think about how accessible your cabinet handles will be. When placing a handle for an overhead cabinet, it is best to place the handles on the lower or middle part of the door so that they will be easier to reach. As for lower cabinets, it will be better to place handles on the higher part of the door so that you won’t have to bend down to open them.
Cabinets and drawers can be of varying sizes. For compact ones, you can settle for small knobs as they will do the job in allowing you to open the doors. As for bigger, wider or taller cabinets, you will need to take into account the weight that your knobs or pulls will need to handle.
