Finding the perfect kitchen cabinet pull is like completing a 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle—you’ve finally created a masterpiece, but up until that point everything was totally confusing. With so many options on the market, and in so many different styles, picking the right pulls for your kitchen cabinets can be an overwhelming endeavor. 

Here, we’ve divided our absolute favorite kitchen cabinet pulls by material, which is a great way to narrow down your search. From brass to leather, each one is a workhorse in the kitchen, and some even come with a sweet price tag, a welcome surprise when filling an entire space with sparkling new hardware. 

Hot Brass

This best part of this warm-hued pick—besides the fact that it looks good with everything, especially sage cabinets—is that it develops a cool patina over time. 

Back to Black

Modern and familiar all at once, midnight-hued hardware can lend a sophisticated vibe to Shaker cupboards and sleek flat-panel ones alike. Try them in a farmhouse kitchen for a dose of drama. 

Chrome Sweet Chrome

A constant classic, easy to clean, and super-shiny, chrome gives a polished feel to any kind of kitchen, whether you lean a little bohemian or totally traditional.

Silver Spring

With a slightly warmer undertone than chrome, nickel is just as durable and creates a cool contrast to colorful cabinets.  

Variety Show

Sure, metal kitchen hardware gets all the glory, but there are plenty of other materials, from wood to marble, that can help set the tone of your cooking area.
