With decorative hardware increasing in popularity amongst consumers, cabinet handles are available in a larger selection than ever seen before. There are many different handle options to choose from, ranging from simple traditional handles to the most unusual designs ever created. Because handles are the focal points on most cabinets, a nice looking handle will improve the overall look of your cabinetry, allowing your own personal style to shine through.

Cabinet Handle Choices

Cabinet pulls are very popular for cabinet drawers. Antique looking handles can either be decorative and ornate, or have a classic simplicity. Cabinet handle styles from the depression era are very popular and are made from a variety of materials. You can create an old-fashioned look by selecting handles that are made from glass or metal, focusing on colors and finishes that are true to the era.

Milk glass and carnival glass knobs and pulls give cabinetry an elegant, historic feel. These handles are usually fastened with nickel or brass, and can be easily intermixed with brass metal fixtures. High quality materials will always look more authentic, and can even make your new cabinets look like a genuine antique. With a variety of styles, colors, and finishes available to pick from, you will be sure to obtain the look you desire.

For those who stray way from tradition and seek a more modern look, you will want to focus on handles with a simple design and bright finish. Stainless steel or chrome will give your simple cabinets a nice effect without distracting from the clean lines of your cabinetry. Always be sure to match pulls with knobs to keep a look of continuity amongst your cupboards and drawers.
