Often asked: How To Install Pulls On Kitchen Cabinets?

How do you install cabinet pulls?

For both upper and lower cabinets, the pulls should be installed vertically 2 ½ – 3 inches in from the corner of the door. For drawers, they should be installed horizontally in the center of the door. While there is no hard-set rule for the size of your pulls, consider using longer ones on larger drawers and cabinets.

Where should pull handles be placed on kitchen cabinets?

When it comes to installing cabinet door handles (either knobs or pulls), they are always placed on the opposite side from the door hinges. You’ll specifically want to place them anywhere between 1” and 4” from the top or bottom edge of the door.

Where do you mount drawer pulls?

Most drawer pulls are centered on the drawer fronts, but if the cabinet you’re working on has two or three drawers the same size and one larger one at the bottom, install the bottom knob (or pull) higher than the center of that drawer front. Install it so all the knobs on the cabinet are spaced evenly.

How long should Pulls be on cabinets?

While there is no set rule, we generally recommend that the pull length is approximately 1/3 of the cabinet or drawer width. Small Drawers that are 12” or less typically work best with a pull that is 3” to 4” long or a knob that is 1” in diameter.

Do you put knobs or pulls 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. For any large door such as a pantry and any pull-out door (including pull-out base pantries or trash pull-outs), use a pull.

How do you put knobs on cabinets without drilling?

Cut a piece of Command Strip to fit the knob’s base and press it into place on your cabinet front. Peel off the paper backing and firmly press your knob into place. That’s it! I’m so thrilled with these little knobs!

What size drill bit do I need for cabinet hardware?

Drill Holes Most cabinet screws need a 3/16-inch diameter hole, so use a power drill with a 3/16-inch twist bit to create the screw holes. The cabinet pull manufacturer’s instructions will specify the required drill bit size as well.
