I also made sure to put under cabinet lighting so I can see what i am doing on the counters. I even went another step further and did an induction cook top for safety

I have been agonizing over cabinet hardware for our new kitchen, but no more! This article is exactly what I needed to clarify - now I can narrow the field and shop with more purpose:) Thank You

One of the first reccomendations I give on choosing hardware, is on wide drawers. Go with a single larger handle especially in the kitchen. The kitchen is a busy area and users find themselves with something in their hand when they go to open a drawer with the free hand. If there are 2 pulls on a drawer, just using one will end up tweaking the drawer in the long run. When I begin to look for a hardware collection always look at the range of sizes in that collection. I like the rule of the larger the drawer the larger the handle... or the more weight the drawer will hold the wider the stance should be that the handle provides.
