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.
There are so many types of drawer handles available now that it literally takes up pages and pages in catalogs. Most home improvement stores dedicate entire aisles to them. They are made from a full spectrum of materials from very simple functional wood ones all the way to very exotic bone. Some are very ornate and have very intricate designs. The handles in many cases really make the piece. There are those that are very simple and elegant that is made from pewter, brass, stainless steel and other simple metals. There are others that are shaped to look like other items, like miniature baseballs, footballs or forks and spoons. The sky is the limit to what the handles can be made to resemble. They are also offered in a variety of finishes, to compliment a decor.
To choose drawer knobs that will fit the holes that have already been drilled for previous hardware, it is essential to do some measuring. Take off the old drawer pull and measure from the center of one screw hole to the center of the other. A three-inch distance is quite common and it will be easy to find a replacement.
