Cabinet knobs and pulls are among the last components installed in a new kitchen. They are both decorative and functional, and their placement can affect the way the kitchen looks and the way the doors and drawers open. A knob or pull placed too close to the hinges on a cabinet door can make it more difficult to open. Likewise, a knob or pull placed in an unusual place may affect how the cabinet looks. Installed properly, however, new knobs and pulls can help enhance the entire kitchen. Here we show you how to install your own kitchen knob or handle.
Step 1: Mark A Hole for Pre-Drilling
Use a tape measure to find center of the cabinet door frame and mark with pencil. This creates a crosshair with horizontal line. Line crosshair up with the hole in the jig, then mark the hole where you will pre-drill.
A jig has pre-measured holes that allow for exact placement of holes for cabinet hardware. Use small bit to make starter hole when drilling holes for pulls and knobs because you can’t fix a hole that’s too large for the screw. A smaller bit also prevents the hole on the backside of the cabinet from blowing out and splintering.6
Step 2: Attach the Cabinet Pull
Next, use small drill bit to make starter hole. While holding the cabinet pull on the front of the cabinet, screw in from the backside of the cabinet door.
Repeat for the second pull hole.
