Today, there are literally thousands of kitchen cabinet knobs to choose from, making it a bit difficult to settle on one particular style of knob. With a variety of materials and styles to choose from, it is best to find a knob that will suit your lifestyle. Kitchens that experience a lot of use will require cabinet knobs that are durable and easy to clean.

Choosing the Right Knobs for your Kitchen

Always remember that most metal hardware is very sensitive to chemicals and detergents. Although it may surprise you, even common dish soap will cause many types of metallic finishes to break down. Most hardware manufacturers suggest cleaning kitchen knobs with a damp towel and a very mild soap. If you or any of your family members are especially sensitive to germs, you may want to consider selecting knob materials that are more resistant to repeated cleanings.

Many manufacturers offer knobs in hypo-allergenic materials such as stainless steel. This is one of the most resistant knob materials, and is therefore a great choice for kitchens everywhere. Stainless steel resists dirt and grime, and also welcomes a thorough cleaning often.

Kitchen cabinetry with a rich wood tone tends to look best with metal knobs made from quality materials such as brass or chrome. With most kitchen hardware manufacturers offering a variety of finish colors, it will be easy to find your metallic preference in either silver, gold, or bronze coloring. Because these same hardware producers also carry a large selection of matte and shine options, you will find many handle options for your kitchen cabinetry.
