• Kitchen door knobs
The kitchen door knobs are available in variety of range of materials, finishes and styles etc. Plus door knobs only require one hole on the cabinet door instead of two or more, like a door handle would. However, the single attachment on the door may lead it to be loosened more easily than a handle as the whole pressure is on a single point. They give less purchase and there come off more easily.
• Kitchen door pulls and handles
The advantage of using kitchen door handle is that they give more purchase and are more secure than door knobs. Especially when you have long cabinets, door handles are a good choice as they are long and secure. The disadvantage of door pulls, is they have limited range when it comes to style compared to door knobs.
