10 Easy Pieces: Modern Cabinet Knobs

Sarah Lonsdale August 15, 2012

The easiest (and cheapest) way to spiff up a kitchen: replace the cabinet knobs.

Cabinet knobs may be small in size, but their impact is large: the right choice can make all the difference in a space. It’s also a great trick for upgrading a rental space. Here’s a roundup of our favorite modern knobs.

Above: Two cabinet worthy options from Schoolhouse Electric. The Chatham Knob 1.5 in solid brass for $9 (L) and the Kate Knob in solid brass for $7 (R).

Above: The 44-15 Knob by Siro Designs in burshed stainless steel: $5.29 from Knobs and Hardware.

Above: A perennial favorite with architects: the Sugatsune MRB Knob in plated solid brass shown with satin nickel finish; $4.93 from The Hardware Hut.

Above: An Ikea staple, the Varde nickel plated knob from Ikea; $5.99 for a set of two.

Above: The Sugatsune Zinc Alloy Knob (EG-8028); $3.66 at Alema Hardware.

.

Above: The deceptively simple, beautifully proportioned Max Burchartz Cabinet Knob from UK architect specialty hardware company Izé; price available on request.

Above: A simple cylindrical knob by Forges by Valli and Valli in polished chrome; $6.00 from the Hardware Hut. (I just installed these in my kitchen after using Sugastune for years and like the look.)

Above:The Sugatsune RSS Knobs; $8.16 from Alema Hardware in stainless steel available in a variety of sizes.

Siro Designs 44-2 Knob in Stainless Steel

Above: The 44-2 Knob by Siro Designs in fine brushed stainless steel; $4.28 from Knobs and Hardware.

Above: Sheer elegance from Carl Martinez with his Oval Pull with dark bronze finish. Price upon request.
