Shaker cabinets have been the “it” cabinets of Pinterest, Houzz and every show on TV that involves a modern kitchen remodel. They are clean, contemporary, and look good in many different kitchen styles.
The problem with shaker cabinets? Opening them without hardware can be a little bit if a pain. And, if cabinets are white or a pale color, grubby finger prints are going to be all over those cabinets all the time unless you have something to pull when opening them.
After viewing our almost completed kitchen cabinets, Andy immediately said, we have to get handles for these quick. Alright, done.
There are billions of knobs and pulls on the market. This article on Houzz walks you through some of the more popular styles of hardware for shaker cabinets. You can mix a combination of knobs and pulls or just choose one or the other, which is what we are planning to do since our cabinets are white and grey. This way, there is some cohesiveness between the island and wall cabinets.
The Delta Trinsic Faucet we purchased for the kitchen is the champagne bronze color and I want the pulls to match to tie it all together. After shopping online, I narrowed it down to three pulls, priced low to high.
Option A is the most affordable and the most modern. It is the Liberty 3 in. Champagne Bronze Bar Pull. Find them at Home Depot.
Option B is a wee bit more burnished in my opinion. It is the Atlas Hardware Successi 3 7/9" Center Bar Pull in Vintage Brass. You can find them from a couple of sites including Amazon and Build.com.
Option C is also modern and is the most expensive out of the three, but still under 10 bucks, making it a steal. It is the Atlas Homewares Successi Collection Champagne 4.68 inch Square Pull. I found them at Amazon for under $10, other places The Hardware Hut for $10 and more.
This weekend when we visit the house, I plan to make my final decision. Stay tuned!
