Choose Your Cabinet and Drawer Pull Size Wisely

When it comes to modern pull handles, design cannot sacrifice functionality. One crucial part you need to consider before purchasing those sleek cabinet pulls you found is their sizing. While the sizes of quality cabinet pulls will vary depending on what you are looking for, knowing their measurements is still advisable.

Typically, bar handles for cabinets are measured center-to-center. In other words, these center to center drawer pulls look at the distance between the two screw holes (not the length of the entire cabinet pull bars).

When buying (replacement) drawer pulls for pre-drilled furniture, this information is necessary. Don't go buying dresser hardware handles without it. You will have more leeway when the furniture is not pre-drilled, but even then drawer pull placement will determine the maximum length you can purchase.

Here's a simple guideline for the size of cabinet pull styles:

  • Large cabinets (36" or larger) require longer handle pulls between 6 to 12 inches in center to center cabinet pull measurements

  • Standard cabinets (12" to 36") need draw handles that are 3 to 5 inches in length

  • Small cabinets (usually under 12" or narrow drawers) will equip small drawer handle models, that are usually up to 2 inches long

Find the Right Cabinet Hardware Finish for Your Home

The main colors for drawer pull styles are gold, black, and silver. However, there are numerous other variations available on the market. To take things further, often the finish of these drawer pull handles is not shown as the before-mentioned colors. Instead, fancier, unique finish color names are used by sellers.

Don't let this deter you. Things don't need to be complicated. Let's take a look at the main three modern cabinet pull colors in detail.

black silver and gold cabinet pulls

Matte Black Cabinet Hardware Finish

Apart from "matte black cabinet pull" you can also find modern drawer handles categorized under different names. Some of them include oil-rubbed bronze, satin black, black iron, aged bronze, etc.

However, when it comes to black modern cabinet pulls, there are basically two main categories. An oil rubbed bronze cabinet pull will have a warm brown undertone, while matte black cabinet pull handles are entirely black.

Gold Cabinet Hardware Finish

What color are brushed brass pulls? Gold! That's right, gold drawer pull designs have also earned many unique names over the years. Most brass hardware pulls are different shades of gold. You can find them mentioned as bright brass, aged brass, antique brass, satin brass, etc.

The main distinctness between when is visible in their shininess, for lack of a better word. Polished modern brass drawer pulls have reflective surfaces and offer warm undertones. On the other hand, a satin brass gold cabinet pull features a brushed style that offers less warmth, but more golden hues.

Silver Cabinet Hardware Finish

The third type of modern cabinet handle color is silver, which can also be called chrome, satin nickel, or polished nickel. While each category has its own variations, all of these modern drawer pulls offer their own aesthetic.

The difference between these silver modern cabinet handle colors is simple. A chrome cabinet pull features a reflective surface and offers a bright design. A satin nickel bar cabinet pull provides a more brushed design, with cooler undertones. Warm undertones are ensured with polished nickel drawer cabinet pulls - these can be easily mixed with various different metals.

How to Mix Cabinet Hardware?

Various styles of cabinet drawer pulls can be mixed, but only if you go about it carefully. Of course, completely different styles and finishes should never be used together in one room. It will ruin the cohesiveness of the room.

BUT, and it is a capitalized "but" for a reason, when done correctly mixing knobs and pull hardware for drawers is possible, as long as the hardware complements each other. Spicing up your interior design can be easily done by using knobs on all drawers and pulls on all cabinets. Just make sure the different hardware is similar enough (same finish, same style, etc.).

Optimize Cabinet and Drawer Pull Length with the One-Third Rule

To instantly improve any cabinet's appeal, use the 1/3 rule when it comes to modern pull drawer handles. This cabinet pull placement guide will help you with it.

Let us explain!

Modern hardware for cabinets and drawers provides a sleeker look. However, to take that aesthetic appeal further is to use pull handles for drawers that are 1/3 of the height and width of the cabinet door.

The best cabinet pulls for areas with both tall and medium-height cabinets are ones that match. Use longer ones for the taller units, and drawer pulls of medium length for smaller cabinets to complete the look.
