Cabinet door pulls - horizontal or vertical?

Posted by gleapman (My Page) on

We're going with pulls on both drawers and doors. Most pictures I've seen have the door pulls oriented vertically. We are considering setting them horizontally, either centered on the door or closer to the edge away from the hinges. Our pulls are 6-1/2 inches end to end and most of the doors are 14-15 inches wide. (Frameless cabinets stained medium/dark brown, slab doors and drawer fronts, brushed stainless pulls.)

Would enjoy hearing from those who went horizontal on doors on how that worked out both functionally and aesthetically, and whether you'd do it again with the next remodel. Thanks.

RE: Cabinet door pulls - horizontal or vertical?

Hi Gleapman.

I used pulls everywhere in my ktichen except my dish hutch. All are horizontal. I love the way they look and function.


I'll link a thread below where horizontal pulls were discussed. You can find more threads by using an Internet search for (minus the " symbols) " horizontal pull"
