Our youngest kids can't tackle a full dishwasher or the laundry just yet. But they are old enough to put away the silverware and manage their underwear and sock drawer. I placed a couple of drawer organizers in our large kitchen drawers and used a permanent marker to draw an outline of each utensil type inside each slot. Now the kids can follow the simple code and put away the silverware into the drawer organizers without any help from me. I think they've even made it into a game, to see who can finish first.
Deciding on which of the many drawer handles to choose can be difficult because there are so many choices. Taking a few things into consideration will help to narrow the choice. What will it be used for? If it is for kitchen drawers, than knowing that the kitchen is one of the busiest areas of the home should persuade leaning toward more durable types. If the they are for a dresser that was refinished trying to match the them to the period that the dresser comes from is a good idea, of if the dresser will be used in a child's room one of the more whimsical options might be a good choice. If they will be used on a bathroom vanity then choosing something that will be durable and moisture resistant might be the right way to go.
The final choice if you are replacing odd sized drawer knobs is to buy ones with a back plate. A back plate can cover the existing holes. No one will know they are there. It will eliminate the problem inherent in the other option where you have to match the finish of the holes to the drawer front. Many drawer pulls come with back plates. You can search the home improvement stores and hardware stores looking for that ideal set of cabinet handles. It takes a lot of leg work, but you get a first hand look at any hardware you are considering. If it is a local store, you are likely to know how good their return policies are, as well.
