How to Update Tired Cabinets & Drawers

A cupboard without a beautiful handle is like an outfit without the pizzazz of the perfect accessory. There isn’t a more simple upgrade that packs a punch as much as upgrading your hardware. The power of a handle to transform a cupboard is wondrous.

The good news is, it won’t break the bank to upgrade your bare & unadorned wardrobe handles or Ikea kitchen cupboards with something transformative. Here are our top tips for updating your cabinet pulls and knobs!

London Drawer Pull with the Limpet Drawer Knobs


Are bland white cupboards offering you only dull looks while you make your morning espresso? Turn that drab look around in a weekend by replacing the handles with something that has tone & texture. It could be a cane wrapped cupboard handle that adds texture and delight or maybe an aged brass drawer knob for instant elevation that makes your wardrobe or bathroom vanity look more expensive.

Not feeling well acquainted with the electric drill and tool belt? Never fear. Single penetration drawer knobs and handles can be easily changed over with just a screwdriver in less than 30 minutes.

What to do if you have ugly holes to cover when you pull off your old handles? Choose a flush or surface mount style that will cover the damage! The Society inc London Drawer Pulls are a great example and long enough to cover most holes!

If you’re working on a new kitchen or bathroom project using a kit kitchen, then some well-designed handles might be just enough to add authenticity and style to an otherwise simple palette. Use it as your foundation to highlight your hardware selections like open shelves with brass shelf brackets, hand forged hanging racks and leather wrapped cupboard handles. To the untrained eye these simple upgrades make it difficult to discern from a designer kitchen. Guests will be oohing & ahhing at your next margarita night!
