Tip Tuesdays – Q&A

What is the rule of thumb for deciding whether to use knobs or pulls?

When deciding whether to use knobs or pulls, most people go with knobs on doors and pulls on drawers or pulls on everything. There really is no set rule when it comes to choosing what style you like best in your home. Another factor to consider when making your decision is choosing the right hand fit. If you choose to go with pulls, make sure your hand comfortably fits between the surface of the cabinet and where you grip the hardware. If the pull is too small it makes opening and closing the drawer/cabinet more difficult. Likewise, if it is too small it can also cause the finish of the cabinet to wear off if your hand is continually touching it.
