Many customers have a difficult time deciding on the hardware they want to put on their cabinets. Most people don’t have a problem selecting a finish that they like, but the question becomes do they want all knobs, all pulls, or some combination thereof? I have seen installations where knobs or pulls were used throughout and they look fine. Some customers will opt for a combination, using knobs on the doors and pulls on the drawer fronts or vice versa. The truth of the matter is there is no right or wrong way to do it. Choose what is visually appealing to you and something that you will be comfortable with.

Some people elect not to put any hardware at all on their cabinets. However, I do not recommend this. No matter how clean your kitchen is or how careful you are, over time, the natural oils in your skin will eventually cause a discoloration in the finish at the point where you touch the door or drawer each time you open it.

An attractive hardware selection that coordinates well with the style and colors of your cabinets and countertops can provide a lovely finishing touch to your beautiful new kitchen.

    So true about the finish is no problem, it is the style. And the style can make or break the entire look and feel of the kitchen! Great little blog about kitchen cabinet hardware! Thanks!

    Very nice post.Really selecting the right cabinet hardware for the kitchen is sometimes difficult as it should also go with the interior of the kitchen.
