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.
Try using drawer organizers to contain what you want in each drawer. These always work well for your silverware but they are great for holding those pens and pencils too. Sort through your spoons, spatulas, tongs etc. and ask yourself if your using them and how often? You may find that you have duplicate items but you only use a select few that are your favorites. Categorize and group together different utensils that you need but don't use every day. Take for example a garlic press, can opener, egg slicer, specialty knives for cheese and vegetables etc. Knowing that you keep these items together will make them easier to find when they are needed.
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.
