Drawer handles and cabinet handles are pieces of hardware that are attached to the outside of drawers and cabinets to allow them to be easily opened and closed, making it simpler to access the contents inside.
There are a variety of handles available with various key features creating their differences. The materials used to make a handle can impact its suitability depending on its strength, grip, size and even weight. Handles can be made of many materials but are most commonly made of metal or plastic depending on the environment in which the handle is going to be used.
The handles also come in a range of different shapes and sizes, which will affect how they are both used and installed. Larger handles can allow for easier and faster access whereas smaller shallower handles can maximise space and help to avoid any unwanted collisions or snagging.
Drawer cabinet handles are usually screwed into place on the outside of the drawer. Some designs of drawer cabinet handle mean that you need to attach them from the inside of the drawer, screwing directly into the handle for a concealed fixing. Other types allow you to screw them in from the outside, so the fixing is exposed. The screws will usually come with the handle.
