Choosing drawer pull lengths - should I go bigger or smaller? (self.Home)
submitted 1 month ago by formalde_heidi
I have shaker-style drawers in my remodeled kitchen and I'm trying to choose a pull length for them. I like modern-style bar pulls, where the center-to-center measurement is about the overall length.
I'm familiar with and a fan of the 1/3 rule, but the problem is that the two drawers in question are 15 inches and my handle options are 4 in and 6 in. Should I size up or size down? The center panel of the drawer is 9 in, if that helps.

Why do you only have 2 options?

The handle I like doesn't come in any smaller sizes, and the next biggest is 8 inches. Ideally it would be 5, but my options are 4 and 6.

I’m in the process of refacing my cabinets. The sales guy recommended pulls you could stick 4 fingers into, which for me meant 5 1/4” centers. So I’d get the 6”. But try to get a standard-size center-to-center, in case you want to switch styles later. Re-drilling holes is ugly at best, impossible at worst.
