Hardware does not have to match the other metal finishes in a space. Instead, consider how knobs and pulls will look against the cabinetry. Choose a tone close to the cabinet color for a traditional look, or go contemporary with high contrast.

Choose the Correct Size
If you’re replacing pulls, measure the existing holes from center to center and choose new hardware to match. For new pulls, the standard ratio is ⅓ the width of the drawer front. For a more contemporary look, choose pulls that are ½ to ¾ the width of a drawer front or the height of a door.
When adding knobs to drawers, find the center of the drawer for single knobs, or divide the measurement into thirds if you’re using two knobs. For perfect placement every time, use a premade template, or learn how to build your own with our DIY Video.

Closures, Slides & Hinges
– Catches secure the cabinet door using magnets or rollers. – Latches clip or swing into place and are great for homes with children or curious pets. – Drawer Slides make closing and opening drawers easier and self-closing models prevent damage caused by slamming. – Hinges are available in styles and finishes to match cabinet knobs and pulls. Make sure to match the installation type when replacing existing hinges.
Upgrade Every Space
Cabinet hardware isn’t only for the kitchen and bathroom. Don’t forget these important details when remodeling or redecorating other spaces. Built-in cabinetry can be found in dining rooms, family rooms, and bedrooms. Dressers and other furniture with doors and drawers can also benefit from a hardware update.
