Tips for Selecting Kitchen Drawer Pulls Whether you are replacing your kitchen cabinets or not, new kitchen drawer pulls are a great way to change up the look of your kitchen without spending a lot of money. Kitchen drawer pulls can take just about any shape, color, or style you can think of, and they do not take a lot of time to install. However, selecting the right kitchen drawer pulls does involve making many decisions. You have to think about the style of the hardware compared to the style of the drawers. Then you have to think about the weight and size of the drawers to determine what size pulls you need. You also have to consider the various materials that kitchen drawer pulls are made out of. With all of these decisions, how can you know which drawer pulls will look best in your kitchen? Here are some tips to figuring it all out. Hardware Style Style is one of the most obvious things when it comes to décor of any kind. The way the hardware looks in the drawers it will go on is certainly very important. It should match the rest of the kitchen and complete the look, much like earrings or a necklace completes your personal look. Kitchen drawer pulls are like the finishing touches on a beautiful kitchen, and they can enhance the beauty of the kitchen if they are selected properly or look glaring and out of place if the wrong decision is made. When considering style, just think about the overall style of the kitchen. If you decided on an antique look, then antique drawer pulls are the answer, but if you have a very modern or contemporary look, then you will need something much more sleek and newer. Another part of choosing a style is the kind of kitchen drawer pull you select. Drawer pulls can either be knobs or handles, depending on which style you prefer. You may even want to take into consideration which of the two types feels better in your hand. Materials Another important option that is related to style is the material. Metal kitchen drawer pulls are the most popular right now, but many people opt instead of glass or plastic pulls. Metal pulls will last quite a bit longer than glass or plastic, although they are quite expensive and can be a bit limited in terms of color. However, what metal pulls lack in color, they make up for in the ability to have very ornate carvings and designs. Glass pulls have the benefit of offering a wide selection of colors and very intricate designs. In fact, people who really want a unique type of hardware for their kitchen or bathroom will probably want to opt for glass because of the many choices that are available. Plastic drawer pulls are the least expensive option, and they may offer many different colors and designs also, but often they are very cheap and do not last a long time. Be prepared to change the hardware out again in a couple of years if you opt for low grade plastic. More durable and expensive plastic may last longer than a couple of years. Drawer Size Finally, remember to take into account the size of the drawers. This part has two sides to it. First, think about the overall size of the pull and the size of the drawer face. The pull should be proportional to the front of the drawer. Second, think about how heavy the drawer is and how easy or difficult it is to pull out. Kitchen drawer pulls that are too small will not work well with very heavy or large drawers.

If you are buying a wooden piece of furniture, remember it will need to be positioned away from any radiators or working fireplaces, as the heat can dry out and warp the wood. Some chest of drawers designs offer adjustable feet, which is worth considering if you have uneven flooring, as it eliminates the need to wedge something under one corner to stop it from wobbling. Chest of drawers design features If you are buying your chest of drawers on the internet, you should still try to visit a showroom and have a good look at them. There are certain design features that you should check, such as whether the drawers open smoothly on their runners and how easy it is to grasp the handles - practicality outweighs style at this stage, so if it seems like the drawers might be difficult to open when they are full, you will probably want to start your search again. Check the quality of the chest of drawers Obviously, the chest of drawers you buy should feel solid and strong, but you can also check that it is made well by looking at the drawers.
