Home > Building Specialty Products Blog > Cabinet Pulls vs. Cabinet Knobs

Cabinet pulls and knobs are the finishing touches to a kitchen or bathroom. They are the icing on the cake. Cabinet pulls and knobs are a feature that many if not most homebuyers are looking for. There are advantages and disadvantages to both kinds and often times it comes down to style preference. Some of the key advantages of both are:

  • Cabinet Pulls – Cabinet pulls have become quite popular for kitchen cabinetry. They are typically larger and longer than a cabinet knob. They make opening a drawer or cabinet more comfortable as you can place your whole hand inside the pull to open it. Cabinet pulls give a more modern touch to a kitchen or bathroom. They are easy to install and can last as long as the cabinets last. There is additional stability as there are two anchor points to the cabinet.

Cabinet Pulls vs. Cabinet Knobs

  • Cabinet Knobs – Cabinet Knobs are smaller and rounder hand holds to open a cabinet. There are many sizes, colors, and styles to choose from. Knobs are easy to operate and simple to install. Knobs have been around for a long time and have not gone out of style. You can rest easy knowing that your cabinet knobs will not be going out of style anytime soon.

The function and purpose of cabinet pulls and knobs are pretty similar. Most home builders and buyers choose one over the other due to personal preference or design style. Here at Residential Building Specialties, Inc., we offer many options in both styles for you to choose from.
