First is the practical and functional aspects of the handle, before investing, it is important to know the dimensions of the original handle. The length of the shaft passing through the door of the cabinet or drawer must be verified. It can take too much time, it's not a problem, and it’s going to cut the excess. Too short and you will not be able to mount the handle on your furniture.
In a second step, it has furniture with a simple button or handles with double support. Do not change the models if you are using a double-hole handle. Do not put a button in the place; the aesthetic appearance will not be in the appointment. On the other hand, think about measuring the space between the holes to avoid having to puncture the furniture.
Finally, the design and material are the most important elements in our case; you can change the wooden handles by stainless steel or vice versa. The tendency in the drawer, for example, is to place the painted ceramic buttons with the most beautiful effect.
How to Choose Kitchen Cabinet Handles?
The choice of roche hardware should be done carefully because they often last a lifetime and begin to look increasingly discordant if not chosen correctly. These 5 main tips will ensure you never make a mistake with your choice.
Kitchen cabinet handles may be the last thing you have in mind when building a kitchen or renovating an existing one. They are small, necessary but they do not cost as much as the rest of the materials. They are often bought because we like them, regardless of how they improve the decoration or blend in with the overall appearance.
Kitchen knobs are very different from handles and handles. The difference may be inconsequential, but both have different characteristics and purposes, which may affect the overall appearance of the kitchen. The round knobs are more informal, cozy and have a homelike style. They work well in an older setting, with wooden cabinets and rustic decor. The kitchen cabinet handles and handles are more modern and contemporary. They complement steel kitchens, minimalism and eclectic and sophisticated look. However, there is no fixed rule and each can be exchanged with the other.
QUALITY AND FUNCTION
The main criterion for choosing Roche cabinet handles is their quality. A well-designed handle of good quality stands the test of time. The handles and knobs are often touched and pulled by opening and closing kitchen doors and cabinets. They should look stylish, but the most important thing is to be functional and strong.
Try the handles before deciding to buy them, see if they can be grasped easily, if they are pulled correctly. Grasping is particularly important, especially considering the people who may have larger hands or older people with joint problems.
MATERIAL AND FINISH
Once you decide the style and function of a knob or a handle, the next thing is to know the type of material or finish you want. Handles and cabinet handles come in a variety of different materials, from special steel to polished brass and even simple plastic. As a general rule, steel or chrome handles made by Roche hardware radiate a modern and sophisticated appearance, while brass and bronze are more traditional and outdated. Plastic knobs work well in areas that are inconspicuous. The finishes also vary and can range from matte or glossy black to pewter, brass and steel. However, consider other kitchen elements before deciding the finish. The black handles do not go well with pastel shades and a bronze look may not look good with red cabinets.
The handles are available in various sizes and lengths. It is up to you if you want to mix and match knob lengths or keep it the same throughout the entire process. There are handles available in an average length that can be adapted to any type of kitchen cabinet. If you are not sure what these are, ask your kitchen designer.
It is important to fix handles and knobs after the cabinets have been installed in the kitchen. Stand in your new kitchen and hold the handles against the drawers and cabinet doors. As a general rule, vertical handles are placed on the doors and horizontal handles on the drawers. In addition, they should be placed on doors where they do not collide with each other. Placing the handles horizontally on the cabinet doors is unusual, but it looks good in some kitchens.
The contemporary and aerodynamic kitchens have no handles. A lip cut in the top of each door and the front of the drawer creates a channel that helps pull them out.
The 'Push to open' mechanism, a feature in most cabinets, is a simple and inexpensive option for opening doors without handles. This is usually incorporated directly into the housing of the cabinet.
