Choosing the right size for your cabinet hardware can make a big difference in the look and functionality of your kitchen or bathroom cabinets. Too small and the hardware may seem out of place and not provide adequate grip. Too large and the hardware may overpower the cabinets and become an eyesore. In this blog, we'll discuss how to determine the right size for your cabinet hardware.
When it comes to cabinet hardware, size is often determined by the center-to-center measurement, which is the distance between the center of one screw hole to the center of the other screw hole. Knobs typically range from 1 inch to 1 3/4 inches in size, while pulls typically range from 3 inches to 6 inches. It's important to measure the center-to-center distance of your cabinet doors and drawers to determine the right size hardware for your cabinets.
Another important factor to consider is the size of your cabinets and drawers. If you have smaller cabinets, smaller hardware may be appropriate. If your cabinets are larger, larger hardware may make more sense. You can also take the overall style of your cabinets into account when choosing hardware size. For example, modern or minimalist cabinets may look better with smaller, more streamlined hardware, while traditional or ornate cabinets may benefit from larger, more decorative hardware.
When in doubt, a good rule of thumb is to choose hardware that is proportional to the size of your cabinets and drawers. You can also consult with a design professional or hardware specialist to help you determine the right size for your cabinets.
