1. Tubular Stainless Steel Bar Pulls
This is one of the most popular kitchen cabinet hardware styles of the past 10 years. You will see these as often on classic Shaker-style cabinets as on modern flat-panel ones. They most often make the biggest statement when they're run as long as possible on the door or drawer. This style has end caps that are flush, so that you don't have little bits that stick out and catch the pocket of your pants. Anyone who has ripped a pocket while walking briskly through a kitchen knows what I mean.
What they do for the kitchen: Add a strong linear feel that accentuates strong square and rectangular elements.
They work well with: Horizontal wood grain, horizontal long drawers and tile backsplashes.
4. C- or J-Channel Metal Rail Pulls
These pulls offer another great option for those who don't want their pulls to stick out into the traffic flow. They are very sleek, but be careful of dust and spills getting caught in the channels.
5. C-Channel Integrated Wood Pulls
These pulls are for the purist who doesn't want to mix too many materials in a kitchen. They're not the most pragmatic choice for high-use kitchens.
What they do for the kitchen: Create a seamless look in which metal cabinet hardware doesn't interrupt the wood face of the doors.
They work well with: Minimalist kitchens with no wall cabinets, kitchens with open shelves and beautiful wood veneers.
6. Tab Pulls
These pulls are for the minimalist who wants a bit more. They're discreet but still functional. They can be done small on all cabinets or longer, running the full length of the cabinet door or drawer.
7. Cutout Flat Bar Pulls
Cutout bar pulls are decorative and simple at the same time, and have almost a '70s feeling in antique brass. I love a pull that adds a little furniture detail and glamour to a modern flat-panel door style.
8. Wire Pulls
Simple, classic and utilitarian, these are great for those who don't want their hardware to make a strong statement.
9. Hidden Touch Latches
Not for those who use their kitchens frequently for cooking items heavy on the oil or butter. Fingerprints on the fronts of your doors will drive you mad! But it's very sleek and cool looking to not have a stick of hardware in sight.
