Wooden Cabinet Knobs FAQ

What is cabinet hardware?

Cabinet hardware refers to the knobs and pulls attached to both your cabinets and drawers. Hardware also includes the hinges that allow the cabinet door to swing open. The primary function of cabinet hardware is to allow you to open your cabinet doors and drawers.

Why choose wooden cabinet knobs?

  • Some of the knobs and handles are fully made of raw unfinished wood and others are combined with matte black or champagne bronze finishes.
  • Select a combination of wood and brass cabinet knobs for your next project to make it unique and take it to the next level.
  • By choosing a selection of unfinished cabinet knobs you can stain them to match your project, and because they are available in oak, cherry, walnut, and more as well as mushroom, square, and ball designs, you are sure to find the knob with just the right look.

What are the different types of drawer pulls?

Knobs typically require only one mounting screw to make installation simple. Also referred to as drawer pulls or cabinet pulls, handle pulls have a rod- or bar-like design that attaches to the surface at each end. Many handle pulls are offered in the same shapes, styles, and finishes as knobs for coordination purposes.

Are cabinet knobs better than cabinet pulls?

  • Knobs have smaller profiles than handles, are less expensive, and can be used for both drawers and cabinets. They are slightly easier to install than pulls since you only need one screw to secure the knob to the surface.
  • Pulls are larger than knobs, make more of a statement, and tend to be easier to grip. They are more expensive than pulls, but they come in many different sizes. They tend to complement drawers or larger cabinets with their linear shape.

What type of handles goes on kitchen cabinets?

There are no strict rules to follow when choosing whether to select a knob or a pull or both. One preference is to use knobs for all doors and pulls for all drawers. Use a pull for any large door such as a pantry and any pull-out door (including pull-out base pantries or trash pull-outs).

Is installing cabinet knobs easy?


  • Screwdriver: Use to tighten the screw into the back of the cabinet knob
  • Tape measure
  • Hacksaw
  • Drill
  • Drill bit
  • Countersink drill bit


  1. When fitting a cabinet knob, it is good to first determine if the length of the screw is correct. If it is too long, then it will need to be cut down using a hacksaw and if it is too short you may need to countersink it into the cupboard door.
  2. Screw the fixing into the back of the cabinet knob to see if any adjustment needs to be made with the length or to determine the depth that needs to be countersunk. It’s best to adjust the screw as little as possible to allow enough length in the back of the cabinet knob for secure fixing.
  3. Once the screws are the correct length, mark where you wish the cabinet knob to sit. Drill the appropriate size hole for the screw and use a countersunk drill bit so the screw can sit within the door but not fall through.
  4. Slide the screw through the door and start to attach the cabinet knob to it. Once on the screw enough, push the cabinet knob flush to the door and then tighten the screw to the cabinet knob.
  5. Avoid spinning the cabinet knob on as this may cause damage to your cupboard doors and paintwork.

What to know before choosing cabinet knobs?

  • Determine the shape you want. Take note of your cabinet style, countertop edge, lighting fixtures, and any other important design elements. Do they have square or curved lines?
    Choose hardware that is consistent with the type of lines in your design.
  • Consider the finish. While most people will choose chrome or brushed nickel, there are numerous other finishes available to add interest to your kitchen. You don’t need to match your faucet as long as the finish complements other finishes in the design.
  • Consider how materials will feel. Along with the finish, hardware material can impact the style and feel of the space. Most cabinet pulls and knobs are made out of metal. However, you can also find knobs and pulls made of glass, wood, crystal, plastic, and stone.
  • Think about comfort. Try out the knob first. Touch it, feel it, and fit your hand inside the pull. Does it fit? Does it feel nice? Or does it cram your fingers and feel sharp around the edges?
  • If you would like your hardware to make a bold impact, choose a finish that has a lot of contrast with your door color. For example, black hardware on white doors, or satin brass on navy blue doors. On the other hand, if you’d like your hardware to be more subtle, choose a finish that is similar in color and light to your doors.
