How do I space double pulls on larger drawers?

sadrmmaSeptember 27, 2012

I searched and could not find any threads on this. Does anyone have any idea how to space two cup pulls on the oversized drawers? The cabinet guy is here installing them and wants to know where I want to put them. How did you decide?

I worked in a high-end cabinet and furniture shop years ago in Boston.

They way we did it was to reach with our hands for the drawer - where our hands hit the cabinet face was where we placed the pulls.

I prefer one pull so no direct experience, but what I would start with is finding the 1/3 mark from the right side of the drawer. Then find the mark 1/3 from the left side of the drawer. In other words, break it into thirds. If that doesn't look right, adjust from there.

Thanks doc! I did it with the hand hitting and it worked out nicely. It sounds funny but it actually works well.
