Cabinet handles are easy to overlook, but they play an integral part in unifying your interior décor
27 August 2022
A cabinet handle or knob basically refers to anything that is attached to drawers for the purpose of opening and closing. Cabinet handles are usually not the flashiest part of interior design, but they have a profound effect on the overall appearance of a room. They provide a subtle emphasis on certain materials, colours and tones within a décor scheme.
Just because handles aren’t as prominent as other décor features does not mean a beautiful handle will go unnoticed. There is a huge market for unique hardware and bespoke door handles in Singapore – you just have to know where to look. Ornate cabinet and door handles are not common products in your average hardware store, but there are many specialized companies operating and distributing across Singapore which can deliver the perfect handles for your home.
Generally speaking, there is a vast expanse of styles and types of kitchen cabinet handles. Makes such as the edge profile, bow handles, T-bar handles, bar handles, vintage knobs, cup handles, and even handleless cabinets are readily available from a variety of places.
Most cupboard handles can easily be swapped out for new ones, so they are a speedy and affordable way to elevate your cabinets style without having to replace the unit or update the whole kitchen. You could even DIY if you like or call a cabinetmaker if you want to save yourself the trouble (and the dime – drawer handles themselves are not very expensive $$-$$$, but getting them professionally installed probably will be).
There are a few standout brands in Singapore recognised for their artistry in the production of cabinet door handles. This includes places like Lavarella, Kawajun Hardware, Hidden Treasures, Thrive Design and Trading, Buster and Punch, and of course Ikea. You can rest assured of a high quality product with any number of these stores. If you are operating on a budget, you might also want to consider opportunity stores of second hand sales; chances are you might find something cute and vintage on a budget.
