Home Living : May 24th 2011
8 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, May 24, 2011 Get a handle on things » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING They might be small in size, but cabinet handles can make or break a kitchen. Here are some points to consider. Do you like the look of them? Naturally, your first consideration when choosing handles and knobs for your kitchen is whether or not you'll like how they look. Take a sample home to see how they'll look on your cabinets before you make any firm decisions. Will they suit your kitchen? It makes no sense to choose an ornate handle for a contemporary, minimalist kitchen, or vice versa. For pointers on what makes a perfect match, flick through magazines and visit showrooms to see what handles and cabinet styles have been paired together. Are they functional? Do your chosen handles do their job, and do it well? Or are they too small and fiddly to operate easily? The only way to find out is to get hands-on. So, if possible, try to visit a showroom where the handles are mounted on doors, allowing you to give them a test run. Are they ''timeless''? If you want your kitchen to go the distance, take extra care when selecting handles, the wrong choice now could date your kitchen in future. If you want to choose a ''timeless'' handle, opt for simple and unobtrusive. Are they a suitable size? When your handles are installed, will they allow your cabinet doors to open and close unimpeded? This is particularly important on corner cabinets where the doors are bi- folding: choose a handle that's too big or long and you may not be able to open the door without causing damage to the finish. Don't be afraid to splurge If you've spent $30,000 on a new kitchen, don't choose inexpensive handles that could make the rest of the room look cheap and nasty.
