Before buying new cabinet hardware consider which style, shape, and material will look best in your space. A cabinet knob can come in a simple shape or a variety of elaborate and beautiful novelty knobs. Pulls include a variety of styles such as rustic or French country. Modern style cabinets work well with an angular cabinet pull, while cabinets with softer lines are complemented by a simple round knob or round cup pull or even a bail pull with its old-fashioned drop handle.
The most popular type of cabinet hardware is the knob. Decorative or simple in style, a cabinet knob is attached to a cabinet door or drawer with a single screw.
Knobs come in various materials such as brass, stainless steel, glass, stone, zinc, and even cermanic. The most common size is 1-1/4 inches in diameter.
Commonly referred to as cabinet handles or drawer pulls, a cabinet pull serves the same function as a knob but is larger. They are typically attached to a cabinet or drawer with two or more screws.
Drop Handle/Bail Pull
Similar to cabinet knobs, pulls are available in a variety of finishes such as oil rubbed bronze, antique copper, iron, polished chrome and nickel. The most popular sizes are 3 to 4 inches in length.
