Choosing Modern Kitchen Handles for Oak Kitchens
Kitchen handles and knobs are one of the final finishing touches for oak kitchens. This small detail can mean the difference between a contemporary aesthetic and a more classic feel.
At Solid Wood Kitchen Cabinets, we offer a wide range of handles and knobs that are perfect for making oak kitchen doors and drawer fronts look inherently modern.
Popular Knobs and Handles for Oak Kitchens
The most popular contemporary handles in our collection are our Steel Bar Handles and Metropolis Bow Handles. These choices are available in a variety of sizes to suit both drawers and cabinet doors in fashionable finishes – whether painted or lacquered. We recommend that medium handles are used vertically on cabinet doors, whilst the smaller handles are more suitable for horizontal mounting on kitchen drawers.
If you would prefer to use knobs, our Metropolis Mushroom Knobs come in either a satin or polished finish, and look superb in modern kitchens; the latter is particularly well-suited to high-contrast modern settings.
Another choice is our Sleek Cup Handle, which is the ideal selection for creating a slightly more industrial aesthetic in modern kitchens. It combines well with kitchen cabinets painted in darker shades of grey or green and can also be used alongside the aforementioned satin finish Metropolis Mushroom Knob.
Of course, metal and stainless steel isn’t the only option for handles in a modern solid wood kitchen. Our Solid Maple Knob can be used to contrast with dark cabinet frontals, whilst our simple Solid Oak Knob can be painted to match cabinet frontals of your choice. Alternatively, it can be sprayed in a silver or gold paint for a luxurious, yet affordable finish.
