pantry pull query

alisonpowellAugust 12, 2014

I am having long bar pulls on shaker style lower drawers & cupboards. I have a pantry door that will open as one door but looks like 3 doors externally. Where should I locate the bar pull - in line with the upper cabinets on the top section of the pantry or in the middle section?

I would go with the middle, as that seems to be where I would reach for a pull.

I'd go with the middle for two reasons - 1) what Errant said, and 2) leverage -- if its a tall full cabinet, it might be harder to pull out with an upper handle (and thus cause more strain on the hardware)

Elbow height is the best for leverage, so middle would seem right form that standpoint, and it probably would look the best too...
