Placement of cabinet handles?

Posted by kwilson50 (My Page) on

Anyone have any quick guidelines as to placement of cabinet door handles? Using 96mm stainless handles, doors are an incredible number of different sizes. Going to put the handles vertical, all the same distance from the relevant door corner. Have a cheap plastic template, it came warped and is under clamps as we speak. Old hardware holes have been filled, doors painted- old handles were set on a diagonal .

After diagonal settings, anything would be an improvement! Seriously, there isn't any "rule" for placement of pulls or knobs. Could you post a photo of a section of cabinets? It would be helpful to see what your doors look like.

This is my dining room, aka room of curing doors. Only a hint of the size variation.

My kd had the bottom start at three inches above the bottom edge and the same with knobs. I like the pulls placed that way but with the few knobs that I have I would have rather seen the knobs a bit lower. I do agree that there is no right or wrong just what you prefer.
