Whether you are into DIY installations and repairs or whether you are can’t tell the difference between a screw driver and a nail, it is important to have some knowledge about the fixtures you have at home. This is because even if you won’t do the repair work yourself, you may be required to shop for the parts of some of these common fixtures. One of the most important fixtures you will come across is the kitchen drawer. Even though this fixture has very many parts, it is important to know those that are more likely to break down due to the frequent usage of the drawer. These kitchen drawer parts include but are not limited to the following:
As the name suggests, these are normally used to either close or open the drawer, they are also referred to as handles in some quarters. Apart from allowing users to easily open and close the drawer, these pulls also serve a more aesthetic purpose. They are meant to add on the beauty of not only the drawer but the kitchen as a whole. There are various types of pulls readily available in the market, they are basically named according to their design. We have the Appliance pull, the bail, the bird cage pull, the finger pull, furniture, cup/bin pull, Drop/hanging pull, Handle/Bar Pull, Ring Pull, Pendant Pull and the Recessed/Flush pull. They are made from a variety of materials such as stainless steel, satin nickel, oil rubbed bronze etc.
When it comes to cabinetry, one of the most important components is the hinge. Getting the correct hinge does in a major way determine the look and function of that particular cabinet. Hinges are usually categorized as European, Traditional, invisible and special application hinges. The main role of a hinge is to allow for easy swinging of the cabinet. European cabinet hinges are ideal for achieving a professionally finished cabinet while the traditional hinges are made to be used with what is known as face frame cabinetry.
These are also important accessories of a kitchen drawer. Even though they can be used to pull and open the drawer, there are those which are fitted on the drawer for purely aesthetic reasons. They are several knob shapes available, they include but are not limited to the following: the Bar shape, the birdcage, the egg shape, Geometric, Novelty shape, Specialty, T-Shaped, Oval/oblong, Rectangle, Square, and rectangle. They are made from a variety of materials such as aluminum, bamboo, cast iron. Stainless steel, solid brass, Zinc, wood, Resin, steel etc.
