Kitchen drawer pulls can have a powerful effect on the appearance of a working kitchen. You might not think of it because your cabinet drawers come with handles already. However, you can enhance the theme of the décor subtly by using kitchen hardware masterfully.
When someone says kitchen cabinet handles chances are the image that comes to mind for you is some of the drawers and cabinets in your kitchen. This makes perfect sense because this is usually where we see these kinds of handles. But, if you have a couple extra handles sitting around, or know where you can get some more that match your kitchen, they may be about to help you organize your kitchen a little more and make it a neater and more clutter free environment. Here's the plan, you're going to use those extra kitchen cabinet handles to go up on the wall and become miniature hanging racks. In addition to the handles you're going to need to find some hooks and other hardware in matching material, or at least a complimentary metal material, to your kitchen cabinet handles.
Once you have the handles attached to the wall, you should be able to fit two or three S-hooks on them. This way they will loop over the handles with a curved bottom of the hook coming up on the outside. This is where you can hang your utensils. As you may have noticed, most of the cooking utensils in your kitchen drawers have a loop at the top. It's meant for them to be hanging somewhere. By using a couple extra kitchen cabinet handles placed in open space on your wall you created that perfect area put those utensils away.
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.
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.
