Once things are fresh and covered, dig into your kitchen drawers. This is often one of the most disorganized parts of a kitchen because people think nobody looks in their drawers other than those using them. However, even if this is true, using disorganized drawers adds to stress and frustration when cooking. Everyone knows how annoying it is to reach into a drawer while cooking three of four items on the stove, only to see a giant mess and no whisk, spatula or stirring spoon. Use drawer organizers to divide items into categories and if you feel like there are no organizers that suit your needs, make your own.
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.
After the drawers are organized, head to the pantry. This is another case where things are often left to fall apart because the door can be shut. In order to shop smart and know what ingredients you have on hand, organize your pantry. Determine what must be kept in the pantry and then figure out the best way to store it. Some things will stay fresh longer if they are in glass containers. Also be sure edible items are up off of the floor by at least six inches.
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.
When you walk into a room for the first time, you may not consciously notice details like drawer knobs. If someone asked you what they were like, you may not be able to answer. Yet, they create an ambience that is unique to the kitchen. You may not know what you liked or did not like, but there will be either a feeling of harmony or a nagging sense of wrongness. The kitchen cabinet knobs make that big of a difference.
