Cabinet hardware can also make a big difference in your kitchen. Not only will you be look at them when you are in the kitchen, you will be using them to open your cabinets. There are a lot of different styles of knobs and pulls. Most longer pulls are attached to the cabinet with 2 screws. The longer pulls work great with larger cabinets and drawers For shorter drawers, knobs work good. The handles or pulls are typically mounted on the opening edge of the cabinet door and the middle of the cabinet drawer. Knobs are sometimes used instead of pulls. If you only want to put 1 screwhole in the cabinets, the knobs are the way to go. Knobs can look better than pulls for some kitchen designs.
Within the categories of these two material choices are different grades and types. Particleboard that is high-density is usually stronger than plywood, and usually lasts longer.

If you are planning on a particular color as the theme of your kitchen, then the kitchen cabinets should be made with a wood that has a color that will gel with your theme color. If your theme color is a light shade then some people like to go for light colored wood so that the kitchen cabinets and the wall colors are all light. Some go for dark colored wood so that the kitchen has a warmer and cozier feel.
