Handle pulls are the considered easier to use and are most functional with people with disabilities where other knobs and handles require a grip to pull open a cabinet door.The overall design of the kitchen depends on the cabinet knobs and handles selected. The knobs and handles influence the appearance and usability of the kitchen. The three main factors one should consider are: functionality, material, and the look.
Functionality is the most important factor of handle selection. Ease of use and special needs should be considered when selecting the right handles and knobs. Multitasking is unavoidable when using the kitchen and it can be a more difficult challenge when the wrong handles are selected.
Bar pulls have two attachment points and create a sleek contemporary look.
For a traditional kitchen, drop pulls, ring pulls or pendant pulls that pivot up and down are the ideal selection.
Cup door pulls which are door pulls that are enclosed but provide enclosures for fingers rather than a bar are best suited for a transitional or traditional style kitchen.
Finger pulls are solely used in contemporary kitchens. Finger pulls extend from the edge of the cabinet and provide aslight thickening in the front that allows easy opening by one or two
Material selection should be the second priority when narrowing down your selection. The material choice should be durable to withstand years of usage. Handles go through many stressors such as tugging and pulling so the material durability should exceed the anticipated use. Many people choose metal handles due to their resilience towards daily use but there are
many new options available that match or exceed the durability of metals.
After the handle material and style is selected the third factor should be the look of the handle. This is the essential element of the design since the eye will be naturally drawn to the handles.
