Cabinet Pull Length Formula for Long Cabinet Drawers

Some other tips:

  • If a group of cabinet drawers are stacked on top of one another and they all have the same width, but different heights, use the same length cabinet pull for all drawers.
  • Most people will choose two or three different sizes to fulfill all their kitchen cabinet hardware needs. Even if you have 7 different sizes of cabinet doors and drawers, limiting yourself to three different sizes may help reduce visual clutter.
  • Why go longer? The higher cost and greater use of material give off a high-class vibe. Furthermore, long cabinet pulls may be useful for heavier drawers that may require two hands to open them.
