Cabinet pulls come in many shapes, sizes, and configurations. What you choose to install on your cabinets really comes down to personal preference and your design style. Match your room's theme for cohesion, so if you're decorating a modern kitchen, cabinet hardware should follow suit.
While style is important, so is comfort. Once you've narrowed it down to a few different options, buy one and test it out at home before buying the rest. Touch it, feel it, and make sure it's something you're comfortable using multiple times a day. It's worth the extra time and effort.
Cabinets are often in damp or humid environments, such as kitchens or bathrooms. As a result, high-quality cabinet hardware is often made of brass or stainless steel and painted with a rust-resistant finish that will never fade or discolor. Other common cabinet hardware materials are acrylic, bronze, cast iron, ceramic, crystal, glass, wood, and zinc. For a more cohesive look, match the color of the cabinet hardware to the color of the kitchen appliance or faucet finish.
Of course, the hinges are used to attach the cabinet door to the frame. You might be surprised by the number of different types of hinges available, and your cabinets require a specific style. Many of these are just smaller versions of the inner and outer door hinges, but the options don't stop there. Latches or latches are hardware attached to the frame that holds the door in place when it is closed.
