What Is Cabinet Hardware?
Cabinet hardware consists of knobs and pulls that attach to cabinets and drawers. Knobs and pulls are the two most common options.
- Cabinet Knobs are less expensive than handles (pulls), have smaller profiles, and can be used in drawers and cabinets. You only need one screw to secure the knob to the surface, making them slightly easier to install than pulls.
- Cabinet Pulls are larger than knobs, make more of a statement, and tend to be easier to handle. Although they are more expensive than knobs, cabinet pulls are available in a wide range of sizes. Their linear shape complements drawers and larger cabinets.

How to Choose the Best Cabinet Knobs for Your Home
The purpose of cabinet hardware is primarily functional, but it also helps define your home's style. The best cabinet knobs for you will depend mainly on the style of your cabinet doors and the overall theme of your home.
Cabinet knobs and pulls are available in virtually every style you can imagine. For a traditional home, choose ornate knobs and pulls. Choose simple hardware with long, basic lines if your home is contemporary. Transitional homes should have simple hardware. For rustic homes, there are also charming options that contribute to the overall atmosphere. There are endless possibilities!
Cabinet Knob Style Considerations
After choosing hardware type, think about what style will work best in your space. With traditional or heritage-inspired designs, curved silhouettes, textured details, and slim ridges work well. The lines and edges of modern cabinetry tend to be smooth and sleek, so you’ll want to consider hardware with a minimal profile.
Choosing a Finish
A cabinet's hardware works best when its finish adds contrast to the room. A warmer toned space with brass cabinetry tends to feel vintage, while a cooler tone with darker cabinet hardware tends to feel more contemporary. Depending on where you want to install the cabinet knobs, reviewing the color of your kitchen or bathroom fixtures and the overall decor can help you make the right decision.
It's OK to Mix Metals!
It's okay to break the rules or mix metals in your space if it reflects your personal style. Consider black cabinet hardware if you typically want everything to match but have stainless steel appliances. Your space will look clean and well-coordinated, as these knobs will match all finishes.
How To Choose Cabinet Knob Size
When choosing cabinet knob size, let the size of the room be your guide. For example, larger kitchens benefit from oversized hardware because the knobs are proportionate. Smaller rooms will benefit from small knobs, as they won’t overpower the surrounding space or draw attention from its other features.
Since drawers and cabinets come in a variety of sizes, it can be difficult to determine which size you need. The guidelines below can provide a general idea of what you should be looking for.
- Knobs with a diameter of 1" or less work best on drawers with a width of 12" or less.
- With medium drawers between 12” to 30”, a pull between 4” to 8” long or a knob between 1” and 1.5” in diameter works well.
- Drawers that are 30" to 48" will need a pull of at least 8", or a knob that is one inch or larger. Installing two knobs or pulls is also a great option.
However, these are only general guidelines. If you really like the look of an elaborate larger cabinet knob or pull but don’t want them to diminish everything else in the room, you can try mixing and matching different sizes in the same style. Using oversized drawer pulls for long drawers and smaller pulls for shorter drawers is a good example.
