When shopping for cabinet pulls, it is easy to become overwhelmed by all the options and feel like an amateur swimming in a sea of industry jargon. The first important thing to know is what the unit of measurement represents so that you can define what you are looking for, what you have, and what you need. Here are some important facts and tips to keep in mind for finding the right cabinet pull.
- The size used when shopping for pulls is called the drill center, and refers to the distance between the two holes on the hardware.
- The 3 inch is the standard size, and the next standard size up is 96 millimeters, so don’t let the different measurement units confuse you.
- In addition to the 3 inch and 96 mm, other pulls of different sizes and shapes exist so that there is something to fit the need of every consumer.
- You can refine your search on the site by drill center and from there refine further to match the look and feel of your cabinets.
Looking for something unique? Go for a modern look with the bar pull,
a longer pull that come in a variety of sizes and can go up to the full length of your cabinet for a sleek and refreshing new take, with the bonus of providing a conveniently larger surface for easier opening of your cabinets. Want to use a smaller pull or a different shape than you previously had on your cabinets but worried about hiding holes? Cover up existing holes with a backplate and relish the freedom to then pick the pull of your choosing without fear of unseemly blemishes on your cabinets.
