Choosing Cabinet Handles

By Martin Hart on Thu 05 March 2020

Whether they are in the kitchen, bathroom or any other room of the home, cabinets can be an important yet stylish part of an interior design. One of the ways in which they can be made to fit in with the style of their surroundings is through the use of cabinet handles.

So, what should you consider when choosing handles?

Cabinet Handle Shapes

You can find cabinet handles in a huge range of shapes from square knobs to round bars so there are shapes to suit any application. Round knobs tend to give a more traditional feel, whereas bars can often feel more modern, so it is entirely down to the style and preference of the individual and their interior design.

Cabinet Handle Materials

There are a few common materials used for cabinet handles, including wood, glass, plastic, metal and porcelain. These materials will determine the look and style of the handle, so it is important to consider. For a more traditional look, wooden handles may be the best choice, whereas glass can give a luxurious feel and porcelain can offer pretty designs.

It is worth considering where the handle will be used and the level of use it will receive. Metal handles are hardwearing, so they can be a good choice for cabinets and cupboards that are used often.

Cabinet Handle Designs

Some cabinet handles can offer something a little different with stylish and pretty designs. This is most common with porcelain handles which may feature designs, often floral designs. Other handles may be engraved or embossed to give a unique design.

You will need to consider all of the above factors when choosing a cabinet handle in order to get on perfect for the job. Of course, you will want the handle to look great with the cabinet itself, so you will need to consider the material, colour, design and size of the cabinet itself. You may also want to consider the placement of the cabinet. For example, if you have a chest of drawers in a living area, you may want to choose handles that do not stick out too far from the drawers in order to prevent people knocking into or getting caught on them when walking past.
