Cabinet hardware accounts for less than 1% of the average home’s cost, yet it is an important part of making your home reflect your own unique style. Cabinet hardware is a simple detail that will accentuate the look of your cabinetry. Whether kitchen or bathroom cabinets, the type of cabinet hardware you choose will give a statement. There are various options to choose from, however, it is important to contemplate on you style and aesthetic.

Your selections should be narrowed down as a result of your research. You should not be compelled to spend the next ten years of your life with cabinet hardware that you despise. This is why research is so important.
In this post, we will look at the many types of cabinet hardware knobs.

I used to believe that knobs were just circular devices that were used to open and close cabinet hardware. You’d be surprised at how many different sorts of knobs there are. I wrote this to assist people who shared my stereotype.

1. Knobs in the shape of balls

Ball knobs are made out of a round ball that you may hold in order to open or move the object to which they are attached. Ball knobs are frequently employed in applications that need up-down or side-to-side motion. They have the ability to move either vertically or horizontally. Ball knobs also provide a comfortable grip due to their natural shape.

2. T-handle knobs

We can’t discuss typical types of knobs without discussing the T-handle. These knobs are the one most popular types of knobs.  A T-handle knob, is often referred to as a handle, has a long and straight grasping handle. They provide a high thrust, similar to faceted knobs. A T-handle grip is simple to grasp and turn. T-handle knobs like this one are frequently used for tightening and fastening purposes.

3. Knurled knob

A knurled knob is one that has a knurled gripping handle. The grip isn’t smooth. Rather, knurled rim knobs feature a textured or “knurled” grip that provides more traction than other types of knobs. Knurled knobs come in a variety of sizes. Some are tiny, while others are larger. They all, however, have a knurled gripping handle.

In mild mounting situations, the high-quality knurled-head knob provides a solid grip for fast finger tightening.


4. Ceramic knobs

Ceramic knobs are timeless and gorgeous types of knobs. They are made  of ceramic material. These types of knobs have been around since forever. Ceramic knobs are widely for their antique and vintage nature. They give off an elegant look paired with any color of cabinet furniture. Furthermore, Ceramic knobs are somewhat similar to push pull knobs. The difference between the former and the latter is the type of material that they are both produced from.

5. The classic push-pull Function

A push-pull knob is one that requires pushing or pulling to operate. They are usually constructed of high-quality plastic with a shiny finish, or they are made of stainless steel. To operate a push-pull knob, either push inward or pull outward. This mode of action defines push-pull knobs and distinguishes them from other types of knobs.
