Written by 

gs 1792029 antique drawers 040214 1665Drawer pulls/handles are needed to open drawers and doors in every home. They enhance the beauty of cabinetry, while also making it easier to open. Nevertheless, damaged, cracked, chipped, scratched, faded, or loose handles/pulls can affect the overall appeal of the cabinets and the room. Housekeeping helps make a room look good, but crappy handles take away from that like waxing a heavily rusted truck. It hinders appeal. If this sounds like it applies to your situation, you may want to give your cabinets a facelift with brand new drawer pulls/handles.

Wide Handles
Drawer pulls with wide handles are available in many materials, including:

  • Satin-nickel finishes
  • Chrome finishes
  • Brass finishes
  • Solid brass material
  • Solid plastic material
  • Solid vinyl material
  • Solid wood material
  • Etc.

Some of the wide handles are manufactured with solid materials, while others that are less expensive are made from something else and plated with a finish. That is where brass finish verse solid brass comes into play. It can be the same for nickel finishes and stainless steel finishes.

Shaped Drawer Handles
Drawer pulls/handles that are shaped in design often have the same materials as the wide handles. They can be a metal, plastic, or wood. They can also be plated or solid. In addition, these types of handles can have an etched design when it comes to metal materials or a painted design for wood, vinyl, or plastic. When it comes to wooden handles specifically, they can be untreated or treated with a stain and/or water protectant. Shaped handles include the following:

  • Round Knobs: The round drawer handles mount by 1 screw and typically have a round diameter of 1-2.5 inches. With these handles, the entire knob is not round. They usually have a cylindrical leg to them that mounts onto the drawer.
  • Square Knobs: The square drawer pulls have the same description as the round in most cases. However, they are sometimes square all the way down to the drawer surface.
  • Oval Knobs: The knobs that are oval in design are similar to the round knobs. They just have a different shape. Oval knobs allow you to have that roundish look, but with more to grip onto.
  • Rectangular Knobs: The knobs that have a rectangular look to them usually still only mount with 1 screw, depending on design. You can find a wide drawer pull that is rectangular in shape, but the rectangular knobs discussed here mount with 1 screw.

No matter what drawers you need handles for or what material you desire, you can easily find a good match because of all the options and products available today.
