Guidance on handle/pull placement - pls

mirucaSeptember 9, 2013

Wondering if there are guidleines on vertical pull placement - specifically, looking at two below options; also on corner swing out doors. We have shaker style cabinets, as do these two examples

First question - guidance on veritical pull placement
Example #1 - mounting hole is 3" from bottom of inside cabinet, the pull bottom edge is about 1 1/2 from bottom of cabinet front.

Example #2 - this is Happs - it appears the pull bottom edge is aligned with the inner edge of the front cabinet frame.

Second Question - this is breezygirl's horizontal pull on a corner cabinet - are vertical pulls also used on these cabinets?

I did number 2.
Love what breezy did as well.

On the lowers-check out Badgergal's pull placement on the drawers.

I love what Brexzy did too - and was certain we would do the same until I held out pull up to our cabinets. I was quite surprised, and somewhat disapppinted, that ours looked better vertical!

Good morning!

I like your option #2 for your vertical uppers.

As for my cabs, all my pulls are horizontal. And, except for knobs on my dish hutch, I only used pulls.

hi breezy,
quick question:
how wide are your drawers on each side of the range in your photo above? I'm asking about the 3 lowest, widest drawers. I like you have have split the top row into two narrower drawers They look like 6/6/6/12 height wise? How are you liking that configuration.
sorry, that was more than one question!

We did vertical pulls on the cabinets and horizontal on the drawers. Our corner pull is placed vertically as well.

I'm at work and don't have a picture, but our pulls did not look good horizontally. I wish they had...I really liked breezy's horizontal placement .

Seems like #2 is getting the response - I like the symmetry of it but it also seems just that much higher for a shortie. # 2 is also the shorter of the pulls (about 6" vs 8").

Breezy ... I covet the placement of your pulls! All horizontal just didn't look the best on these - similar to rkb21's comment. In our case, it is likely because the pulls have a slight curve to them.
