Spring is the time for cleaning out the clutter and starting anew. Going hand-in-hand with cleaning is organization and storage solutions. Tall cabinets and wide drawers are excellent ways to store and organize many of your belongings.
That's why your cabinet handle size matters.
To access those cabinets and drawers, we recommend the use of long handles measuring 256mm (centre-to-centre) or greater. This design approach is superior to short handles or multiple knobs by accentuating the length of the cabinet door or drawer face.
4 Styles of Long Handles
Open concept spaces with long linear accents are perfect for adding some long handles. They help to accentuate those linear accents and create a visual aesthetic that makes the space look larger than it is. Ponte handles with their flat feet that extend well beyond the centre-to-centre length help to create an uber-long aesthetic appeal. Ponte is available in 256mm (338mm overall length) and 320mm (412mm overall length).
Modern spaces featuring odes to classic design have long been thought of as transitional. However, old world rustic design features fused seamlessly with a modern space is something very different. Archways and raw stone have resurfaced recently, bringing that old world charm to the forefront of design. Milano is a modern shaped pull that suits contemporary, transitional and designer spaces. It also has a strong geometric shape that both complements and contrasts the curves and jagged lines of the aforementioned design elements. The long versions available in 352mm and 768mm lengths are ideal for tall cabinets and wide drawers.
Loft apartments have become increasingly popular in recent years, offering a unique and stylish living space for urban dwellers. Loft apartments and condos are converted industrial buildings such as factories and warehouses. They are characterized by their open floor plans, high ceilings, and large windows. These features create a sense of spaciousness and natural light that is highly sought after in urban living. Long Kanda handles lend themselves perfectly to the open space and sharp clean lines often associated with lofts. Kanda is available in 320mm.
The modern bathroom or “personal spa” should be a place to comfortably prepare yourself for the day ahead. To create such a space, consider the types of furnishings, cabinets, colour and arrangement. Large custom vanities with wide drawers are a great way to elongate the room, which adds the illusion of more space. To complement those wide drawers, we recommend long handles. Senza, a sleek and stylish handle with a comfortable grip is available in 256mm and 320mm lengths.
