Cabinets are very important in the home. Those who are passionate about home décor put a lot of effort into installing the appropriate cabinet designs and styles. They are useful in every room and therefore must be chosen carefully, synchronizing with the rest of the furniture.

The living room cabinets are stocked with books, TVs, DVD players, and stereo. Music CDs and speakers require separate cabinets here.

Cabinets for Children

The children’s rooms have closets for their clothes, toys, and school supplies.

bathroom cabinets

These are used to hold a variety of things like soaps, shampoos, mouthwash, toothpaste, toothbrush, and even medicine. There are separate ones for towels and toilet paper.

cabinet knobs

Knowing this, you must realize the importance of cabinet knobs. These knobs are purchased in bulk as they are required for each cabinet compartment installed in the home. However, you can spice things up by using different cabinet knobs for each room to keep your individual style and theme.

For the living room furniture you can opt for something sober such as metal or wooden handles. These are easy to clean and maintain. Glass knobs aren’t a bad idea either, especially if used for less-used cabinets. This reduces the chance of breaking them. They look great too.

For the kitchen, you have to be careful about the choice of cabinet knobs. These knobs are widely used a large number of times every day. Things are continually being put in and out of kitchen cabinets, making them susceptible to easy damage. Therefore, these knobs must be strong and able to withstand harsh environments. The heat, oil and humidity in the air in kitchens can damage wood and metal. Therefore, using ceramic or glass knobs is a good idea.

Storage or laundry closets usually store cleaning products and mops. The best types of cabinet knobs to use in such areas are those made of waterproof materials.

Children’s rooms are great for experimenting with knobs. Cartoon characters, alphabets, and figures of youth icons are great ideas for cabinet knobs in these rooms. If your kids are too old for such youthful ideas, you can always install sports and entertainment figure knobs.

Mounting the knobs

One of the important aspects when installing cabinet knobs is their size. You don’t want them to take up half the size of the cabinets; nor is it allowed to have them so small that one cannot even get a good grip on them to open the door. Measurement is the key in this case. Installing them is not a Herculean task as long as you have a precise procedure and a steady hand drilling the nuts and bolts. However, you can always hire professional help to do it if you don’t want to risk it. Since they are only available in sets, if they fit incorrectly there is no way to replace the individual parts.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with the style of the knobs with the overall decor of the room in mind. They can add an interesting touch to the overall look and attract a lot of positive attention.
