CABINET PULLS PART TWO: METAL / by Caroline Wilding

TAB PULL:
If installing a routed finger pull isn't possible, my go-to is a metal tab pull (or edge pull). It has a minimal visual effect so it doesn't detract from the design of the cabinetry, it doesn't protrude as much as other pulls, and can be very cost effective.  Almost every hardware manufacturer makes a version of these, from Ikea to Sun Valley Bronze, so there are a variety of price points and ranges of quality. I also like that you can find them in almost any finish.

This one is by Amerock and available on My Knobs, retails for only around $5 a pop!

I love the idea of adding some warmth through pull hardware. Brass accents have shown up everywhere these days, but I am obsessed with the satin copper finish that Schoolhouse Electric offers in the Midvale and T Pulls. I think any of the three offered finishes would be a timeless choice for a kitchen or bath.

Here is one more pull that I have been crushing over by 12th Ave Iron. You rout out a notch into the cabinet drawer/ door and install it into the void. I like that this pull is flush and offers a little peek-a-boo into the drawer- I think it would look great in the Bronze finish on a darker finish cabinet. It adds a masculine/ industrial element to any cabinet or furniture piece.
