We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – hardware is an easy way to make a big impact in your space! Whether it’s swapping dated hardware for something new, or picking cabinet hardware for a brand new space, it adds so much to the overall design. However, when hardware is poorly placed it can make an otherwise awesome space look off. That’s why we’ve decided to pull together our best tips for making sure you place your hardware correctly. We know that placing knobs and pulls on cabinets can be difficult. Following these tips will help you make your awesome new hardware really shine!

Tip # 1

In traditional spaces, the general rule to follow is knobs on doors and pulls on drawers. Sometimes we’ll break this rule for small drawers or small spaces, like bathrooms!

Tip # 2

For transitional and modern spaces, knobs and pulls can be used interchangeably. Sleek pulls all over are a great option for a more modern look.

Tip # 3

When drawers are 24″ wide or wider, we often like to double up on knobs or pulls. To place this hardware correctly, divide the drawer into thirds and place the hardware in the left and right portions of the drawer.
