Types of kitchen handles

 

Kitchen handle typesAs long as you’re not having a handless kitchen installed then choosing the kitchen handles for your kitchen doors could take you a little longer than you thought, as the choices available are mind blowing!

Two key considerations to initially make are the kitchen handle style and the material that you would like the handle making from.

You’ll then need to think about handle widths and also consider the kitchen handles needed for tall units, as you can get some pretty tall ones that can aid in opening the door should you have a tall unit with just the one full height door on it.

The main kitchen handle styles available to you are:

  • Boss Bar
  • Cup/Pull
  • Drop
  • Square knob
  • Bar
  • Bow/Bridge
  • D Style
  • T Style
  • Round knob

Some of the most popular materials available are:

  • Aluminium effect

The right handle to suit your kitchen

Depending on your style of kitchen, you may opt to go for a modern looking Altino kitchen with a square kitchen handle, or if you are opting for a more tradition look to your kitchen like a croft washed oak, then a Pewter D Handle would suit better.

Our kitchen handles range from around 53p each right up to £28 for the more elegant 352mm Pewter Oval Bar handles. If you’re not sure on the handle width, then you’ll be pleased to know that our handles range from around 10cms wide right up to 1.2 metres!

What does stainless steel effect mean?

A popular question people tend to ask is “what does stainless steel effect mean? Are they made of an aluminium alloy, or plastic, or something else?”

Well, the answer is they are usually made from a material called Zamac and then coated in stainless steel to give the effect of a stainless steel finish.
