question on length of gilmore pulls

It;s very late, and my brain is fried right now!! Got back from dutchwood today and saw some of my doors and the detail in my shaker door is not what I thought I picked, and now I am trying to figure out pull sizes and I could really use some help! I think I'm going with Cliffside Industries appliance pull for my frig and pantry door. I also like their latches, does anyone know what size latch, are there diff. sizes for them?? And for the Restoration hard gilmore pulls, should I just do the 4" they are actually 4.41 long for all draws? or if the draws are longer like 26" would you do the 6"pull?? I feel like I can't make another decision, I'm loosing it! Thanks in advance! Michelle

RE: question on length of gilmore pulls

Funny, I was just looking at the Gilmore pulls a half hour ago! I'd say it depends on how dominant you want the pull to look. I think a 6" pull on a 26" drawer would be a very strong look, pretty hardware-dominated. I looked at my 24" drawer and held up a 6" box in the center to see how it would look. I personally would go with the 4" pull, but you might be looking for something different.

Did you see that they're on final sale? I might be wrong, but I think this might be the pull that had a lot of complaints here a while ago. The screws were not long/strong enough to hold the pulls on well if I remember correctly. Do a search on this forum before you order. That might be why it's on final sale (which it has been for a long time, BTW.)

RE: question on length of gilmore pulls

I used 6" Gilmore pulls on my drawers and doors....full inset, some 24", some 18". I liked the beefy look of them. Here's a lousy picture of the incompleted area, but may give you some idea anyway.

used gillmore pulls all 4", pics below. small cab drawers are 19" across, the big bank is 30", all inset.



RE: question on length of gilmore pulls

addendum. as referenced above the screws that come with the are total crap. i had to pay a CO to my GC to get one out of a cabinet and to source new ones. be warned, replace screws that are actually usable.
