Often referred to as handles, cabinet pulls serve the same function as a knob but are larger.  Unlike knobs, pulls are attached to the cabinet door with two or more screws.

Cup Pulls

Cup pulls are a popular choice for giving a space a minimalist, vintage feel. The semi-circular shape provides an easy-to-open handle for drawers.

Bail Pulls

Unlike other types of pulls, bail pulls feature a hanging handle.  The hanging handle is easily grasped and allows opening drawers with ease.

Regardless of the type of hardware you choose, they are all available in a variety of styles and finishes.  You are sure to find the perfect ones to accent your space.
