How Big Should pulls be on a drawer?
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.
What size pull goes on a 36 drawer?
Cabinet doors 24-36 inches tall are best adorned with pulls 7-12 inches long, while cabinets taller than 36 inches such as pantries, built-in appliances and pullouts should be accompanied by pulls longer than 12 inches.
How do you measure to replace drawer pulls?
Place the drawer pull on a work surface with the threaded posts facing up. Measure from the center of the screw hole in one threaded post over to the center of the other screw hole with a tape measure. This is the measurement required when selecting replacement pulls.
How drawer pulls are measured?
The Center-to-Center of any drawer pull is the distance between the center of one screw hole to the center of the other. Measuring the center-to-center of the drawer pull is key in determining what new hardware will fit and whether you’ll need to drill new mounting holes or fit into existing ones.
What size pulls do you put on cabinets?
What usually looks best is a pull length that is about 1/3 the height of the cabinet door and 1/3 the width of the cabinet drawer. Your eyes follow the length of the pull up the height of the door or across the width of the drawer. Pulls don’t have to all be the same length as long as the pull design is the same.
What size cabinet pulls for 30 inch cabinet?
As we mentioned above, for cabinet drawers 30 inches wide or more we would recommend a pull 5 inches or longer, OR two pulls 3 inches to 5 inches long each. This is necessary because the longer a drawer gets the more weight it can hold and the harder it may be to open.
Are drawer pulls standard?
It depends on the size of the drawer. Standard base and wall cabinets are usually between 12 and 36 inches. If this is the case, it’s typical to use 3- or 4-inch pull handles. If your cabinets are larger than standard, you’ll need larger pulls.

Do hinges and pulls have to match?
Door handles, fixtures and fittings, and other hardware don’t have to match exactly, but they should blend together to make a harmonious space. If you want a cohesive aesthetic, select hardware that’s a similar colour to the finish on your fixtures and appliances.
When should a drawer have 2 pulls?
Drawers wider than 18″ need two knobs/pulls, whereas drawer narrower need only one. If a drawer is wide enough to need two knobs, they should be set about 1/6th of the drawer length from each end (roughly). Single pulls or knobs on drawers should be laterally centered and slightly higher than vertical center.
What size pulls should be on kitchen cabinets?
There is no right or wrong size to choose, but we do recommend choosing pulls that have at least a 3-3/4″ center to center (the distance between the screw holes). This size looks pleasing on most cabinets, while still being large enough to grip comfortably. 5″ pulls are also an excellent choice.
Can I use different size drawer pulls?
No, not all drawer sizes are going to be the same width. Kitchen drawers may vary in size in the same kitchen. You might have small drawers beside appliances like the range or dishwasher, while longer base cabinets may have a bank (stack) of large pots and pan drawers. Here are some common drawer size widths.
