As we all know, kitchens are very connected to style and décor. We want a sense of design and convenience in the kitchen, which is what makes them one of the most important rooms in any house or apartment.
When it comes to home renovation and interior designing, many people ask themselves whether they should replace their cabinets with new ones or not. Depending on your budget and preferences, this could be an expensive process because there are several different types of kitchen cabinets out there. However, you might also choose to replace only those pieces that make your life easier, such as doorknobs or handles for drawers and doors.
Here are the most popular handles for kitchen cabinets?
1) Square Knobs
These knobs have a simple design that doesn’t compete with other elements in the room. They are being used more and more because of their versatility, as they can go well almost anywhere except d-shaped ring pulls, and cup pulls. Plus, they fit perfectly on French provincial pieces as well as modern furniture. Another advantage is its relatively low price compared with other cabinet pulls. Its downside is that some find them boring.
2) D-shaped Ring Pulls
D-shaped ring pulls stand out because of their decorative shape. They are commonly made out of metal, glass, ceramic, or porcelain. Some d shaped ring pulls have fabric tassels at the end, which adds more design to them. Since they are relatively big, they can easily be used as an anchor for other kitchen decor elements like tea towels and pendants lights.
3) Cup Pulls
If you find cubbyholes unappealing, then cup pulls are perfect for your kitchen cabinets. Cup pulls resemble knobs but on a smaller scale. It looks just like round knobs but on a miniature level that it doesn’t fill up the entire hole of the cabinet door. It is a good choice for cabinetry with glass panels.
4) Ribbon Pulls
Ribbon pulls are narrow strips of wood that have been used as cabinet handles before. Nowadays, they can be bought in different finishes and colors, making it easier to match them with the rest of the kitchen’s decor. They are also cheaper compared to other types of cabinet pulls. However, not all cabinets can accommodate this type of pull because its size may vary depending on your preference.
5) Bail Pulls
Bail pulls resemble ribbon pulls, but they are far more intricate in design. They come in circular or star-shaped shapes, making them suitable for any cabin, although it looks best in modern kitchens.
Cabinets are largely interchangeable, so what matters most is how you want your kitchen to look.
