Types of Cabinet Hardware 

You can choose from two types of cabinet hardware for decoration: knobs and pulls. The former refers to small handles connected with only one screw. Although the function of pulls is the same, they are relatively bigger and have more surface area. Therefore, it is easier to group them. Let’s find out more about them.

Knobs can be found in different shapes such as a square and mushroom. Therefore, it is a matter of personal choice to go for the right one. Novelty knobs can be found in different themes, such as sports, food, animals and flower. If you have a large project to work on, you may want to purchase knobs in multipacks.

Again, choosing this piece of hardware depends on your personal preferences. Most pulls take a couple of screws. However, other types of pulses, such as pendant and ring-type require just one screw.

You may find finger pulls in modern homes. They are mounted on the top edge of a drawer cabinet. The back of the drawer cabinet is concealed behind the face of the driver or cabinet. On the other hand, recessed pulls are designed to be installed within the face of the drawer cabinet. For the best installation, the depth of the cabinet and that of the pole should be the same.
