Indian Hardware Handles, Knobs, or Pulls: Which Type of Hardware Is Best for Your Room?

Furnishing one’s bedroom is a task that some of us completely dread, and others of us relish. For those of us who relish the task, finding that perfect bedside table or dresser to complement the color palette we are using in our bedroom can bring joy for days to come.

Here, we’ll review how and which hardware is the best fit for different pieces of your bedroom furniture.

Dressers

Knobs and pulls work best on dressers.

Anthropologie has a great selection of colorful knobs that can be used to customize a dresser and add a pop of color and style to an otherwise bland piece. One knob is usually best for smaller drawers, and wider drawers may require two knobs to make sure you get the right leverage to open the drawer.

Stand-alone closets

Because closet doors tend to close a bit more tightly so that they don’t swing open, a handle is likely best for this piece of furniture. A knob will very often be too small, and a pull may not give you quite the leverage you are looking for.

Bedside tables

These pieces tend to be smaller and more compact in their nature. Typically, you’ll find one or more drawers in a bedside table to hold your bedtime book, reading glasses, or earplugs for those who have a snoring partner. The best hardware pick for that bedside table will more often than not be a dainty knob. Consider replacing the knob with which your bedside tables arrive with knobs that match or complement your bedroom’s color palette and motif.

Desks

Desks are likely to have small drawers, but are also available with file-sized drawers. In the case of smaller drawers, a knob is more than appropriate. For file-sized drawers, which will tend to be heavier with each additional file you pile in, you’ll want a handle for better leverage for getting the drawer open.

Storage chests

A storage chest can not only be a great accent piece for a bedroom, but it can also neatly disguise a bunch of clutter and things you don’t need for other people to see. The best type of hardware for a storage chest will tend to be a pull in the front, or one at either side, if anything. Some more basic chests simply come without hardware.

In short, utilizing the proper hardware on our bedroom furniture offers multiple benefits. The ability to add a pop of color or style to an otherwise ordinary piece of furniture is one such benefit.

Having the right piece of hardware will also ensure that your piece of furniture actually functions in the manner in which it is intended. Most of us have experienced having a small knob on a big piece of furniture just come right off in our hands because the knob wasn’t proportionate to the pressure required to open the furniture. Avoid such instances by making sure you pick the right hardware for your furniture.
