What size cabinet pulls should I use?
While there is no set rule, we generally recommend that the pull length is approximately 1/3 of the cabinet or drawer width. Small Drawers that are 12” or less typically work best with a pull that is 3” to 4” long or a knob that is 1” in diameter.
What size pulls for 36 inch drawers?
Pulls 3-7 inches in length will sit the most comfortably on doors less than 24 inches tall. Cabinet doors 24-36 inches tall are best adorned with pulls 7-12 inches long, while cabinets taller than 36 inches such as pantries, built-in appliances and pullouts should be accompanied by pulls longer than 12 inches.
What is the standard size drawer pull?
Standard Drawers (about 12″ – 36″) Standard-sized drawers can use any of the following pull sizes: 3” (one or two), 4” (one or two), 96mm, and 128mm.
What size kitchen drawer needs two pulls?
If a drawer is wide enough to need two knobs, they should be set about 1/6th of the drawer length from each end (roughly). Single pulls or knobs on drawers should be laterally centered and slightly higher than vertical center.
Should all cabinet pulls be same size?
Consistent Size Throughout There is no right or wrong size to choose, but we do recommend choosing pulls that have at least a 3-3/4″ center to center (the distance between the screw holes). This size looks pleasing on most cabinets, while still being large enough to grip comfortably.
Which is better cabinet knobs or pulls?
Knobs can be the more comfortable option for cabinet doors because your hand rotates naturally as you open them. Pulls are a great option for drawers because your hand doesn’t have to rotate, and you can use more force underneath the whole pull.
Do you put pulls on fake drawers?
I would recommend putting pulls on the dummy drawers it allows for consistency. Good design is always consistent. It will also give the illusion that these drawers are not fake. The idea of putting a minimal intrusive towel bar works well because then it will serve more for function then aesthetics.
Where should Pulls be placed on cabinets?
For both upper and lower cabinets, the pulls should be installed vertically 2 ½ – 3 inches in from the corner of the door. For drawers, they should be installed horizontally in the center of the door. While there is no hard-set rule for the size of your pulls, consider using longer ones on larger drawers and cabinets.
How do you measure for drawer pulls?
Place the drawer pull on a work surface with the threaded posts facing up. Measure from the center of the screw hole in one threaded post over to the center of the other screw hole with a tape measure. This is the measurement required when selecting replacement pulls.
Should cabinet pulls be vertical or horizontal?
The thing to keep in mind with cabinet pulls has to do with placing them vertically or horizontally. Usually for cabinet door pulls, we recommend placing the pulls vertically, making it easy to open the doors (again, functionality is key).
