in your kitchen, these pulls and knobs will put you on the right track
Raised-panel kitchen cabinets are typically seen in more traditional-style kitchens and typically need more ornate and detailed hardware to counterbalance the heaviness of the door style. They need hardware that has visual weight as well.
Most of the time, people choose hardware that matches the style of their kitchen — be it Victorian, colonial, Craftsman etc. — but that doesn't mean you can't mix it up and break the rules. Love the look of raised-panel cabinets? Here's help choosing the right hardware style.
This style of hardware has a feminine touch. You might expect to see it on a piece of furniture rather than on a kitchen cabinet, which is why it works so well on a raised-panel kitchen cabinet.
What they work well with: Traditional-style kitchens, leaded glass inserts, inset cabinetry
Hardware such as this makes a strong unfitted, furniture-style statement. It's ornate and decorative, and often a bit fussy, but it really sets the tone of a kitchen the way jewelry sets the tone of an outfit.
What they work well with: Unfitted furniture-style cabinetry, furniture-style toe kicks, glazed and stained cabinet finishes.
What they work well with: Glazed and distressed cabinet finishes, custom wood hood surrounds, architectural details such as columns, legs and fluting
What they work well with: Sleek and stylish (but not too modern) stainless steel hoods, modern faucets, thick marble countertops.
What they work well with: Black-grouted subway tile, bronze industrial light fixtures, black enamel appliances such as a range or hood.
These have a very old-fashioned furniture style. They might not be the most practical for a high-use kitchen, especially in a painted white finish, but they look great.
Bin Pulls and Knobs
These look great on Shaker-style cabinets, but as you can see, this is a very versatile design that works well on many different door styles.
What they work well with: Knobs on white or off-white cabinetry, vintage light fixtures, wood floors, butcher block countertops.
