Quick and Easy Kitchen Updates With Cupboard and Cabinet Door Handles and Accessories

The kitchen is the heart of the home. No longer is it a purely functional space only required for cooking, it is now a place to entertain, a hot desk for table workers, a spot to bond with family and even a creative area for budding little chefs.

We spend so much time in the kitchen and can quickly tire of looking at the same old drab cupboards, but the good news is you can give your kitchen a refresh with just a few easy updates. A few small changes can make a massive impact, giving your kitchen a fresh new look. One way to achieve this is by using different door and kitchen cabinet handles and hardware. Kitchen door handles and knobs come in all shapes and sizes, so there’s sure to be something to suit your style. If you’re after a modern look, go for sleek metallic finishes or minimal designs. For a more traditional feel, try wooden or even an antique brass finish.

Transformations can be quick and simple, meaning you don’t have to start from scratch – we're talking low fuss and minimal mess for maximum impact!

Update your Cabinet, Cupboard & Electrical Hardware

Old fashioned and dated kitchen cupboard handles can make kitchens look tired and dated. A simple hardware update can make a huge difference, transforming your kitchen from a dated looking space into a sleek and on-trend room.

Choose from kitchen cabinet pulls and kitchen door knobs, perfect for opening units, to drawer pulls and elongated handles ideal for cutlery and pan drawers. Match with electrical sockets and switches in the same finish for a sleek look that’s guaranteed to lift your kitchen space. If your kitchen is in dire need of an update, changing the handles and hardware is a quick and easy way to achieve this without spending a fortune. Browse our range of on-trend finishes and styles to find the perfect look for your kitchen. With something to suit all budgets, there’s no excuse not to give your kitchen a new lease of life.

The Traditional Kitchen Door Handle Update

Shaker style doors are arguably the most popular choice for country-style properties, however, paired with the wrong accessories, your kitchen will soon look like your grandma’s! For a quick and easy update, simply switch over your kitchen cabinet handles and hardware to styles that complement shaker doors.

We suggest a Traditional Cabinet Drawer Pull for your drawers and pan drawers in an Antique Brass finish, with matching Durham Cabinet Pull Handles for your cupboards. This on-trend finish looks exquisite on any coloured unit, but we particularly love the combination with dark navy or green cupboards.

A Modern Kitchen Door Hardware Update

For a modern kitchen in need of an update, perhaps where white is the base colour, we suggest a Satin Rose Gold Finish to your new kitchen door handles and hardware. Elegant, yet with a contemporary edge this shade is guaranteed to pop and bring visual delight back into your kitchen. Our Wide Metro Cabinet Handle pairs perfectly with the contemporary shape of our Deco Cabinet Drawer Pulls for a contemporary touch.

A Seamless Kitchen Design

For a sleek and on-trend finish choose internal door hardware and electrical sockets and switches in the same finish as your cabinet hardware.

This will ensure a smart finish which will really catch the eye. We do find that if electrical switches and sockets don’t match, the finish isn't quite so crisp and clean. If you’re looking for a more traditional finish, then go for a polished brass or chrome. These finishes will reflect the light and give your kitchen an air of sophistication.

Whichever style you choose, make sure that all of your hardware is of the same quality and style - this will help to create a unified look in your kitchen.

Our Top Tips

  • When replacing your cabinet hardware, it’s essential to measure the distance between the two existing screw holes and make sure this measurement is the same for your new handles.
  • Carefully remove the old handles by unscrewing the screws.
  • Position your new handles over the holes and simply screw back into place, tightening with a screwdriver to ensure the handles are firmly secured.
