Kitchen Cabinet Repair: New Knobs and Pulls
You want to do the quickest, easiest kitchen tune up you can. Here's the solution: change out your hardware for a completely different and updated look.
Even Discount Cabinets Can Look Great
Cabinet hardware is a lot like jewelry. The same way you can dress up a black t-shirt with pearls and a scarf, you can dress up your stock kitchen cabinets with new handles.
Kitchen Cabinet Repair Made Easy
If you want to keep this project as easy as possible, then buy replacement knobs and drawer pulls that will use the existing holes in your cabinets. If you buy handles that have two screws and they are a slightly different width than what you have, it will be a challenge. You will have to fill the existing holes, sand them flush with the cabinet face, then paint or stain to match the finish--you will likely find yourself resurfacing kitchen cabinets completely instead of just doing the easy kitchen tune up you planned.
Replacement Kitchen Cabinet Doors
If you want to go one step further, consider buying replacement kitchen cabinet doors. Changing out your cabinet doors might be what you need if you realize your existing cabinets are really marred and scratched up. Then you are free to add whatever knobs and pulls you want. Of course, measure twice, drill once.
Where to Buy
Drawer pulls and cabinet knobs can vary greatly. Brass, nickel, aluminum, wrought iron, plastic, porcelain, and so on. You can buy almost any material you like. They aren't hard to find, but deciding which ones to buy might be. You can buy them at specialty kitchen design stores, home warehouse stores, boutique hardware stores all the way to Ikea, Target, and several online sources including e-Bay.
Get a handle on your kitchen tune up and enjoy the major improvement of this minor kitchen cabinet repair project.
