How to Choose the Perfect Cabinet Handles to Match Your Interior

  • 3 min read

Whether you have a conventional or contemporary interior design theme, you may need to upgrade your cabinet handles to provide your space with the visual appeal and sophistication it deserves. Having cabinet handles that complement your overall décor adds personality to your home and helps bring your vision for the space to life.

Many underestimate the importance of this tiny detail and fail to choose the cabinet handles that best suit their interior, and end up with handles that do not blend well with the overall theme. So, to avoid that mistake and to help you choose the right cabinet handles, here are some guidelines you should keep in mind.

What to Consider When Buying Interior Cabinet Handles

Basically, there are three things that you should keep in mind when looking for the perfect cabinet handles. Knowing these will help you find the right cabinet handles for your home or office in no time at all. Let's dig into these three aspects.

·       The Type of Cabinet Hardware

You may have different types of cabinet hardware, and some like to style these with different types of cabinet handles. There's nothing wrong with that. But if you aim to give your interior a more cohesive look, a good rule of thumb is to stick to cabinet handles that are the same colour and finish.

·       The Finish of the Cabinet Handles

Choosing kitchen cabinet handles with suitable material is important because this will help you maintain them properly and will keep your kitchen cabinets looking good for a long time to come. Plus, the finish of cabinet handles greatly contributes to the space's overall appearance. For instance, choosing modern minimalistic chrome cabinet handles may not go well with your historic federation-style kitchen. Instead, the warm tones of bronze or brass, on the other hand, maybe just the thing to bring a classic kitchen to life.

·       The Ergonomics of the Cabinet Handles

The ergonomics of the kitchen cabinet handles are also an essential factor to consider. Kitchen cabinets are things that you need to constantly open and close. So, when shopping for handles, it's important to make sure that the handles or the cabinet knobs have a good grip and that your fingers fit comfortably around them. Cabinet handles that are too close together or have sharp corners may be painful or awkward to use, and they will make opening and closing cabinets a chore.
