Searching for the Best 2.5 Inch Drawer Pulls Looking for 2 ½ inch drawer pulls can be a big job, but it also can be an amazing adventure that will result in brand new hardware for your cabinets. Whether you need the 2 ½ inch drawer pulls for your kitchen or bathroom, there are many things that should be understood first. For example, what does it mean if the pull measures 2 ½ inches? Surprisingly, it is not the size of the entire pull, but rather the distance from the two holes for the screws. 2 ½ inch drawer pulls are among the most common sizes, although they are considered non-standard. If you are unsure what size pulls you need, take the time to measure the distance between the two holes. If the drawers are brand new, then it may be possible to use whatever size you want, depending on whether or not there are already holes drilled into the drawer. As you shop for 2 ½ inch pulls, it is important to keep several things in mind before making a decision. Size Although the 2 ½ inch pull size has been discussed when it comes to the distance between the holes, there are also some other sizing issues that are important. Most 2 ½ inch pulls are rather small with very little design that actually goes on the drawer itself. Some are extremely simple with just one piece of metal attaching the two holes, while others have a small ornate pattern on them. In most cases, drawers that require 2 ½ inch pulls will be rather small, so they are typically meant for fairly small drawers. However, it never hurts to take a sample of the drawer pull home and hold it up to the drawer so that you can be sure it will look proportionate. An undersized drawer pull just does not look right, and you may end up with stripped screws after a very short time if the size of the pull is not a good size for the drawer. Style Whenever you are choosing any kind of drawer pull, the style is always an important consideration. Remember that very ornate drawer pulls can be rather difficult to clean, especially when they are the smaller 2 ½ inch size. This is why so many of the available pulls that are this smaller size are so plain in comparison to the larger drawer pulls. In general, when choosing a style for your drawer hardware, look for a style that will go well with the rest of the kitchen or bathroom. Antique drawer handles will look rather strange in a country kitchen, an rustic styles do not mix well with modern or contemporary styles. Remember that you are not just choosing a drawer pull that you like, but you are also choosing one that must match with the rest of the room. Separating the style of the hardware out from the style of the rest of the room is always a mistake. Materials Another important thing to think about when choosing 2 ½ inch pulls is the material of the handle. Most handles are made of metal, especially these smaller sizes, but there are a few that come in glass or plastic. Metal is definitely the most durable material, although glass is a very close second. Plastic tends to break very easily, so while those adorable figures made out of plastic may be very tempting to purchase, it is best to resist the temptation and look for a different material that will last a lot longer.
