There are no hard and fast rules that can guide us on how to determine the right kitchen cabinet hardware size and placement, but there are a few pointers to assist you to figure out what will work for your cabinets. There are some terminologies you need to understand when looking to install cabinet hardware. They are: 

  1. Centre-to-Centre is the measurement between the centres of each screw hole. When searching for new cabinet hardware, this is the most important measurement to look for. 
  2. Overall Length is the distance between the pull’s ends. This measurement is always longer than centre-to-centre and should be considered when determining the length of your cabinet hardware.  
  3. Projection is the area between your door and the door knob. This is vital to remember so that your handles do not obstruct the flow of doors in your kitchen.

An otherwise flawless kitchen can severely suffer from careless hardware selection. Initially, choosing the right hardware fittings and cabinet material may seem like a simple step, but it can significantly enhance the appearance and functionality of your kitchen. When you are narrowing down your options for modular kitchen cabinet hardware, take these 6 factors into account.

 

Kitchen hardware style

The style of your kitchen fittings should complement the other components of the kitchen’s decor. Arched panels on your cabinets will look good with rounded pulls or round knobs. Long square hardware designs will look fantastic with simple flat shutters. Curved forms are typically more classic, whilst square styles tend to look more modern.

 

Kitchen hardware utility and comfort

All other considerations should come after comfort and functionality. Before making a purchase, make sure you use the hardware rather than just choosing it from a catalogue solely based on appearance. Check if the edges are jagged or sharp. Does it have enough room to fit your fingers through? Do “soft close” mechanisms actually close softly?

  1. Overlooking the design layout: It’s vital to follow the work triangle while customising cabinets. Also, filling walls with too many cabinets is a designing mistake that may make the place feel stuffy. 
  2. Making poor colour choices: The colour scheme will affect the overall look of the space. Therefore, cabinets should blend with the kitchen decor. 
  3. Failing to raise cabinets to the ceiling height: It results in a gap where dust might gather, making the space difficult to maintain. 
  4. Compromising the hardware quality: It is important to choose good-quality hardware (hinges, knobs, etc.) as per the cabinet style.

  1. Use masking tape to measure the spirit level. Mark the centre points of the hole on the tape. Remove the tape and apply it to your cabinet, using a spirit level to re-adjust.
  2. Drill a hole on the marked point.
  3. Fill the old hole with an elegant backplate.

It is always ideal to mark the dimensions of the handles on the cabinet door. As a rule of thumb, you want your cabinet hardware to be placed 50 mm away from the top and sides of the door.

A door jamb and a door frame are two different things. So, what is a door jamb vs a door frame? A door frame is made of a mix of horizontal and vertical members which are placed on all sides to provide support to a door. A jamb, on the other hand, is a flat surface that runs vertically on each side of the door frame. It is vital to the functioning of the door. This is where the hinges are placed to hang the door, and the striker plate on the opposite side helps you to open, close, and lock your door.
