Hardware for Kitchen Cabinets

Hardware for Kitchen Cabinets

How your cabinetry looks on the outside is very important, and hardware for kitchen cabinets, like handles, knobs, or backplates, are a very big part of that look. The photo at right is a selection of Amerock's Playful Nature Collection.  It's one of the many available at The Woodworkers Depot.

What you may not think about initially, is that what is on the inside of your cabinets is actually just as important, if not more so, than their outside appearance of your kitchen cupboards.  It really is "what's on the inside" that counts!!

If you have beautiful cherry, maple, hickory, or oak cabinets, but can’t get your rollouts pulled out, or your drawers are falling apart, you won’t be very happy with your beautiful “looking” cabinets.

Hardware for kitchen cabinets not only includes handles and knobs, but also a lot more in the way of accessories. What do you need?

  • Handles or Knobs
  • Lazy Susans
  • Drawer Slides
  • Rollouts
  • Bread Boards - Wooden, Glass, or Plastic

  • Towel Racks
  • Stemware Racks

  • Under Cabinet Lighting
  • The list is endless, but important.


    There are great companies out there that have wonderful, fool-proof products. There are companies out there that are so-so, and then there are companies that you should really stay away from.

    There can also be companies that excel at certain hardware items they manufacture, but are just okay or poor at other items. Each company that manufactures hardware for kitchen cabinets has its specialty.

    Real World Experience:

    In our cabinet shop, we got to know which companies that manufactured hardware for kitchen cabinets were good at what. Rev-A-Shelf lazy susans are exceptional. We were hard-pressed to use any other lazy susan than their kidney cut 36” susan for base cabinets; however, we often got other hardware, such as utility trays, from other companies. Not that Rev-A-Shelf doesn't make nice utility trays, but our customers often preferred something different.  The photo at right is a collage of Rev-a-shelf Lazy Susans.  Click here to order.

    Another example are Blum drawer slides and hinges. Blum is an exceptional company with exception products that we used exclusively in our cabinet shop. Grass is also a great company with great products, but we always preferred to use Blum. Sometimes deciding what hardware to go with is a toss-up.


    As you know, purchasing hardware for kitchen cabinets can be a huge investment. It can also be time consuming, so you want to do it right the first time.
