@Fredda Epstein: any hardware is personal tastes and styles. I suggest you use your browser and put in "kitchen cabinet knobs traditional, modern, contemporary, Louis XIV, art deco, art nouveau, mid century modern" or what ever style your kitchen is and the hardware already chosen. Also add in if you want "wood, brass, gold, copper, silver, white, black, iron" or what ever materials you so desire.

So your search would look something like "Art Deco contemporary copper kitchen cabinet knobs". If you want to look at many types, put in "knobs, kitchen cabinets". The more selection you add to your search the more choices of what you really want will pop up in your search engine. If you don't get enough, then drop part of the detail description.

Great article. All too often this gets pondered at the last minute (usually as the installer is standing by with a drill ready to go). So many decisions to make during a kitchen installation but this one is important to get right the first time!

I went horizontally with my wide stainless drawer and door pulls. And I lined them up on the top rail with the same ones on the drawers. It gives a clean, consistent, linear feel, and all are in line throughout the entire kitchen. Having a cabinet pull in the center of the doors does not present any problem in opening the door. It does not affect the swing of the door one bit, but is sure gives a uniform look to my shaker style cabinets. And on the wider ones (with two panels 36 inches) over the range hood or refridgerator, I used two per cabinet that open upwards with struts. It makes it appear that each panel is seperate.
