Pulls to make slab cabinets not so modern?

Posted by battleship (My Page) on

We are trying to pick out some pulls to make our newly ordered slab cabinets look not so modern.
I see alot of these euro bars on slab cabinets, but that straight, square style doesn't quite suit our space.
I like the cup pull/knob combo, but I'm not sure that it will work with the slab door (seems best for shaker style). I could be wrong though. Anybody have any other suggestions?

All my lowers are slab. I have an arch pull. I wanted my kitchen to have a modern farmhouse feel, and so tab pulls which I originally planned didn't work out.

I used a basic arch pull but maybe what Badgergal used would work for you - Badger - are you out there?
I almost switched to her pulls but she helped me stay the course with my arch pulls.
I don't like pulls with extensions either - I have too much energy and catch my pockets on anything protruding...

Yes a2, I am out here getting my nightly GW fix.
Battleship, the pulls I used are Hickory Hardware's Greenwich Collection. I used 10 inch pulls on my cabinet doors and longer ones on my drawers but the pulls comes in approx. 4 inch and 6 inch lengths too. Mine are the stainless finish but they also come in oil rubbed bronze, bright nickel and a finish called Windover Antique. I ordered mine from a local store but they are available online too (although not all sizes and finishes are available on all websites). It looks like the source below might have a good selection.
The oversize lengths I used on the drawers give a more contemporary look but I think the the 6 or 10 inch lengths would look great on slab doors and not be too modern. Below is a close up shot of mine. If you need to see more pictures just click on it to get to my album.

We haven't installed them yet, but for our slab cherry cabinets we ordered Aspire from Berenson in Brushed Nickel. There is a slight narrowing in the middle that gives it a really nice profile. They are available on Amazon and the sample we got first had a nice weight to it. I think it was Ginny20 that said Berenson was a good company; I hadn't heard of them.

Yep, it was I who suggested Berenson. My custom cabmaker carries a few hardware lines, and he suggested them. The finish is very nice. I think they're made in Buffalo. I love that Aspire that TexasPenny picked. They have a lot of pretty collections.
