Our newest Woodland Heights home has received a huge amount of attention, and a lot of that focus has been on the cabinet hardware! Choosing the cabinet hardware was exceptionally fun for this project. We changed up the mood of the hardware depending on the room and the intended use and ended up with a variety of textures, styles, finishes, and sizes. Before we get into the particulars of the selections, if you need help deciding what type, finish, or size of cabinet hardware to use for your particular space, we have you covered in our Cabinet Hardware 101 guide.

The kitchen in this home has multiple different light fixtures, a highly textured backsplash, two different cabinet finishes, and a countertop with heavy movement. Therefore, we chose to keep the cabinet hardware simple and highly functional, but with some style. Textured bar pulls gave just the right feel.

On our smallest drawers, we utilized a 3” center to center pull. These also were a perfect fit for the under the stairs nook.


6.5” is a fairly standard size and works well on most standard kitchen doors and drawers. We used this size for the drawers in the kitchen and at the coffee bar. These drawers are fairly large and we have used larger pulls for this width of drawer in the past, but given how weighty these pulls are and our need for something more understated with the other finishes here, we went with the 6.5” and the functionality feels great. 

We recommend using at least a 12” pull on trash pull outs, as they can end up being very heavy. We also used the 12” on the 8’ doors of our storage wall. Doors this tall command a lengthy pull if you are wanting to achieve an elegant look.


Our more standard sized doors throughout the kitchen have a ⅞” round knob in the same honey bronze finish as seen in the image above. Varying the type of hardware adds visual interest, but we always recommend staying with the same finish in the same space.

The mudroom is just off the kitchen, but has wildly different finishes, so we kept the hardware the same as the kitchen to tie the two spaces together. We used the 6.5” pull on the doors.

For a more budget friendly option with the same look, we’ve found an option that looks SO similar and has excellent reviews. This brand shows a range of sizes on their pulls from 3” to 10” and has a coordinating knob option. They sell in 10 packs and the price point is unreal. Some pieces come out to under $2!!

Moving into the powder room, we also needed an understated look so we kept it consistent with the kitchen. We’ve recently been opting to skip towel rings in our bathrooms and instead we are utilizing 12” pulls at the false fronts under the sinks where someone can place a towel if they wish or leave without. The same 12” pull we used in the kitchen was the perfect fit with our fluted white oak vanity.

The primary bathroom in this home has a stunning marble mosaic floor, a moody dark marble wall, and white oak cabinets topped with the most luxurious calacatta gold countertops. We needed a memorable hardware choice for this space. We chose an acrylic gold combo once again chose to install a 12” pull on the false fronts at each sink in lieu of a towel bar.

The coordinating 3” pull can be found on the remainder of the drawers and doors in this bathroom as well as the vanity area in the closet for consistency.

We know the Beryn pull is PRICEY, so if you are wanting that look for less, we’ve got you covered. We found this look for $2.23 per pull if you opt for a 3” spread and buy in a 50 pack. If you are shopping for a smaller quantity, even a 5 pack comes out to $3.30 per pull. Such a win. They have multiple sizes up to a 10” pull if you are wanting to use a pull for a hand towel. While we have not purchased this exact pull, we have purchased this brand before and had zero issues with quality. The reviews agree.

The laundry room in this house has subtle neutral wall and floor tile and a serene green toned cabinet. We needed hardware with personality here. On the tall utility closet, we went with the almost 8” knurled pull. We liked that it isn’t your typical straight pull. It’s got some sass to it in addition to the knurling! The same collection has a ⅞” knob that we placed on the remainder of the doors and drawers. They’re weighty and great quality. 

For a more budget friendly option with a similar look, these knobs will do it! We absolutely love the black finish and are going to plan that into a future project ASAP! Get them for $2.60 each if you purchase a 10 pack.
