You’ll need to plan the position of each handle to calculate how many to buy.
Try to think about scale and proportion when working out positions.
Wide doors and drawers will suit wider handles, or two equally spaced knobs.
The handle shouldn’t be dwarfed by the size of door, but nor should it overpower.
Consider ordering just one or two to see what looks best where before placing a full order.
Alternatively, if you have a scaled plan of your cabinetry, and a scale ruler, you could draw the handles in to get an idea of the best position.
Pull and cup handles are considered easier to grip than knobs as you can get more fingers under them.
We recommend choosing pull handles on heavier doors, like those on integrated dishwashers and fridges, as well as wide pan drawers that’ll be fully loaded.
If grip is an issue but you prefer the look of a knob, our T-bar design provides better purchase compared to a smooth, rounded knob.
Finally, if you’re worried about fingerprints and scratches on your cabinet doors, go for handles with built-in solid brass backplates that offer a layer of protection.
