Best Places to Buy Cabinet Hardware

Food & Wine / Rejuvenation

Giving your kitchen a refresh doesn’t always have to involve a full renovation. In fact, you can achieve a brand-new look by simply switching out your hardware. “With such a wide range of style options available, hardware offers a vehicle of personalization in the kitchen,” says Bob Bakes, the head of design at Bakes & Kropp Fine Cabinetry. “Consider it the jewelry of the kitchen and approach choices with that in mind.”

If you are planning a full kitchen overhaul or simply just looking to zhuzh up your existing cabinets, thousands of options are available. From simple chrome pulls to more architectural or elaborate options, browsing online can make it easy to compare styles, materials, finishes, and prices without being overwhelmed. We researched the best places to buy cabinet hardware online (and in some cases, in person) to ensure that executing your kitchen update goes smoothly. 


Rejuvenation Wren Drawer Pull


Rejuvenation started as an architectural salvage shop in Portland, Ore., many years ago, but it eventually began manufacturing reproduction vintage lighting fixtures and welling them via mail order. Today, it’s part of the Williams Sonoma company and has expanded its collection to include furniture, decor, and just about anything you need to refresh your home. The kitchen cabinet hardware selection is quite robust, with options ranging in style from classic to contemporary. Some Rejuvenation products have a “contract grade” label, which means they have been tested for high-traffic use, are made with quality materials, and come at a reasonable price.

Since Wayfair’s large selection can overwhelm, you’ll want to be specific about your search and filter by finish or pull type to narrow down results for easier shopping.

Pottery Barn

Pottery Barn Rhodes Cabinet Knobs

Pottery Barn

Pottery Barn is one of our favorites for anything home and kitchen, including cabinet hardware. The selection here tends to favor more traditional and classic styles, such as these Sussex or Mercer drawer pulls, but it also includes a handful of more contemporary choices with sleek lines. Some of the hardware options are contract grade, equipped to handle heavy use, and the prices are moderate. And while Pottery Barn doesn’t have as many options as some competitors, many of the styles are available in over half a dozen finishes, including chrome, brushed nickel, tumbled brass, antique bronze, and matte black.

Damon Brushed Brass Handle with Back Plate


CB2 could be considered the younger, hipper sibling of Crate and Barrel. And while both brands carry home decor products, CB2 tends to be more affordable and trendy than the original brand. With that in mind, the selection of hardware here has a minimalist aesthetic to match modern homes. Be on the lookout for pieces created in conjunction with international designers, like this Damon Knob designed by Barcelona-based Mermelada Estudio and this Urbino Hexagonal Knob by Italian design firm Balutto Associati. Take advantage of CB2’s complimentary in-store or virtual design services to help you decide on your kitchen’s new look.

The Home Depot

Kitchen Hardware

Home Depot

We couldn’t talk about hardware without mentioning Home Depot, a one-stop resource for all home remodeling needs. In fact, thousands of cabinet hardware options are available here, so you’ll want to have a basic idea of what you’re looking for in order to avoid being overwhelmed by choice. Use the filters to search by finish, pull type, size, or style, and narrow your choices as you go, sorting by cost or popularity. While many retailers are focusing on modern design, Home Depot still carries the classics. Think traditional antique brass and filigree options, wrought iron, and similar styles that belong in an older Victorian, colonial, or craftsman-style home.

Factors to Consider


When shopping for cabinet hardware, you’ll want to choose a material you’re willing to maintain. In a kitchen setting, you’ll want pulls and knobs that are easy to clean since they will tend to get greasy or dirty from constant use. Weighty pieces suggest quality and durability — ensure that your chosen hardware can handle frequent use. Avoid flimsy handles and knobs that may wear out quicker than expected.


Aside from the obvious choice of color, like bronze, chrome, and brass, there are two main types of finishes that you’ll want to know about: fixed (also called lacquered) and living (unlacquered). “Fixed finishes should ultimately hold up to the way they appear when they are installed,” says Julie Brayton of Brayton Interiors. “Living finishes do patina over time, which is often desirable in historic kitchens or kitchens that require the level of depth afforded by the patina of a living finish. I would just make certain the expectation of the way the finish will behave over time is clearly understood before installation.”


For visual harmony, the style of hardware you choose should complement the design of your cabinets and overall kitchen look. Ultra-modern kitchens will look best with streamlined designs while more historic or classic kitchens may require period-appropriate hardware. 


Hardware costs range dramatically, from knobs that are just under $2 a piece to pulls priced in the hundreds. With this type of product, you do get what you pay for. Cheaper products mean lesser-quality materials, which may not hold up as well over time. Cabinet hardware is one design element you shouldn’t scrimp on, according to Brayton. “If you do splurge, that has the potential to elevate the whole look of the room by nailing down a historically appropriate — or contemporary — shape, with a finish that packs a punch,” she says.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • How do you choose the right kitchen cabinet hardware size?

    “Best practice is to scale the sizes into cabinetry elevations to understand which sizes balance out the best,” says Brayton. “If you're lost, a nice rule of thumb is to ensure the pulls are one-third of the width of your drawer. But this doesn't need to be a hard fast rule. Oftentimes, I will apply two shorter pulls to a wide drawer to break up the length of what could be a too-contemporary looking overly-long pull.”


    Comfort is also worth considering, according to Gideon Mendelson, the owner and creative director at the Mendelson Group. “We open and close kitchen cabinet doors and drawers regularly, so make sure it’s comfortable. And that’s a personal thing. Go to your local hardware store and see if you like a pull or a knob best. Touch various styles and multiple sizes to see what works for you best.”

  • Should cabinet hardware match the faucet?

    “Cabinet hardware should at the very least relate to the hardware,” says Brayton. “I think the most successful pairings are when the hardware and faucet are selected to relate to each other but not match perfectly. This careful curation adds another layer or level of depth and interest to the hard finishes featured in the kitchen.” 

  • Which hardware finish looks best with white kitchen cabinets?

    “The pairing of white cabinetry and polished nickel is and will remain a true favorite, but with so many more choices available, don’t be afraid to mix it up,” says Bakes. 

  • How do you clean cabinet hardware?

    “I’m a big fan of water, vinegar, and a little dish soap,” says Mendelson. While that combination should be safe for most kitchen hardware, consult the manufacturer for more detailed cleaning instructions when in doubt.
