Default Vote for your favorite Cabinet Pull

Vote for your favorite drawer pull.


I am in the middle of replacing my cabinet/draw pulls and I am undecided. I bought 7 at Loews and I am having a tough time deciding which one I am willing to live with for the unforeseeable future.

It all started with a new kitchen sink faucet.

Old Faucet


New Faucet


Now I am trying to decide on which handle to replace the dated gold ones.

Top four all together


1 & 2 left to right


3 & 4 left to right


5 & 6 left to right


7 with an original pull



The only one that I think I have eliminated is #7 it is to big for small kitchen.

and anyone that has tackled this job previously, any advice on removing the the two faux handles in front of the sinks?

As it stands I am going to cut these in half with a saw and then screw off the old ones and use the old screws as posts and glue the new handles on. Doesn't appear an easy way to drill out wood that is covering the screw holes as the sink is in the way.

5 goes well with the brushed stainless faucet.

It looks like #4 flows better with the handle of the faucet. Or is it just an illusion of the picture of the faucet?

I like #5 or #6. I'd caution that those structured like 2, 3, and 7 might catch on someone's clothing -- especially if they're moving around in a moving coach (like my wife). Thus, they might represent a safety hazard.

#5 has the 'softest' profile, and might not pose as much risk of injury in an unintended contact. #6 seems to more closely reflect the profile of the OEM handles. My own sense of style draws me to #6 -- the grooves in the face seem attractive -- but on the other hand, those grooves would also be dirt catchers, causing greater housekeeping effort.

I vote for #5 -- attractive, goes with the style of the new faucet, least likely to present a hazard while underway (or even when standing still), and least difficult to keep clean.
