If you can’t see the handle of custom cabinets, what should I choose?

For most people, when the kitchen is decorated, the focus should be in the cabinet, the table, or tangled in the floor tile or the floor. As for small things such as cabinets, it is generally made to make decisions after deciding the cabinet.


The usual practice is that after the design is determined, the store will take out some swift models to let you choose. I guess, most people should be unsatisfactory at this time, but can only pinch the nose. Because if you don’t choose this, you really don’t know where to retest.

However, this reaction has left a hidden danger to the kitchen design. Because, if you are taking over two angles from your craft and production, you will find that a suitable handle will make your kitchen look much different.

Another benefit of reselecting the handle is that these small things have a very high cost performance compared to other hardware in the kitchen, and if you don’t spend too much budget, you can effectively make up for the shortcomings in the cabinet design. Assist the cabinet better decoration.

So, today we will talk about how to choose handles.

First, first determine the style

Almost everyone knows that handles must comply with the style, type, and color of the cabinet, and do addition to the cabinet, not to subtract. However, in the specific operation, it is not imagined according to the style of the cabinet, but has its laws.

First, divide the tympanic classifications 4:

Tradition, including Chinese traditional and continental traditions;




This is the point of choice of handle!

After the classification is completed, you can adapt the appropriate type of handle according to your understanding of your own cabinet. It is believed that the chance of success will increase.

There is also a situation: for many neutral cabinets, it is difficult to determine the style type of cabinet, then its style should be based on handle style – what type of handle you like, what will change this cabinet? style.

That’s right, when the decorative element in a space is weakened to a certain level, the handle will play a decisive role.


Second, determine the size and position

The size and location of the handle will also make the kitchen appearance very different. When determining the size and shape of the handle or knob, you need to balance the overall ratio according to the decorative and functionality.


In principle, the following rules should be followed in principle:

Traditional handles should not exceed one-third of the cabinet or drawer length;


Drawers with a width of more than 45cm should be installed at least 2 knobs or 2 short handles;

Modern design cabinets, handles do not need to follow the above rules, handle can be the full length or two-thirds of the cabinet door or drawer;

Handle is typically placed horizontally on the drawer, placed vertically on the door;

The handle of the waist should not be too highlighted to prevent hanging clothes;

The knob or handle position is reasonable, put down the corner on the upper cabinet, put the upper corner, and make it easy to operate.

Third, handle or knob

The larger cabinet doors and longer drawers require a large pull force, and the long pull hand that is easy to hold is the best choice;

Smaller knobs are applied to smaller drawers, or two sets of used on long drawers;


Drawer pull cups will add unique charm to the kitchen, especially Chinese design;

The price of the knob is often cheap than the pull hand, and the adaptability is wide, because they are small, so the space occupied on the door is also small;

Handle easier to create a sense of design, so if you want your kitchen more attractive, the handle is more likely to achieve the effect than the knob;

Four, material

The kitchen handle is in contact with human hand, so it is rugged and can not change color. Common handle materials are:

Nickel, chrome, silver, tin, brass, bronze, stainless steel, glass / crystal, iron, china, acrylic, etc.

What kind of materials choose, depending on the effect you want to achieve and your preferences. In addition, you have to take into account the matching of other facilities in the kitchen, try to avoid conflicts.

For example, there is a brightly sparkled stainless steel large refrigerator in the kitchen, so the same shiny brushed stainless steel handle may make your kitchen more coordinated.

When designing color, you should take into account the color and texture of the handle. For example, if you want to highlight some elements, such as faucet, shelf, and decorativeness of the light source, you can’t forget the handle.

For white or other bright color cabinets, it can be designed with high inverse differences, such as black matte pulse.

The warm color adjustment cabinet in the kitchen needs another match, which can consider the handle of the same hue, such as gold, black or bronze, etc .;

When using a cold tone cabinet, gray, silver, tin or stainless steel, and black handles can be used.

It should be noted that black is emotional, modern, tradition, almost suitable for all styles. Brass and other materials, due to highlighted colors and texture, it is best to perform in light colored cabinets.


V. Surface texture

If the kitchen main rural theme, such as the application of a large number of natural wood, when using nature color, consider using the old or antique handle to emphasize the theme.


Handle is more popular exterior, including: polishing, antique, old, paint film, brushed, matt, etc.


If there is a naughty child at home, it may be better if you choose a rough or old handle, which can hide wear.


Finally, if a style of handle is determined, it will be consistent from the whole.
