Whether you're updating a vintage dresser or searching for knobs and pulls for cabinets as part of a refacing project, the right hardware can make your furniture more beautiful and functional. "Hardware is like the jewelry on your cabinet design, or the cherry on top of a sundae," says Helen Stapper, president of Cabinet Style Studio LTD in Chicago and a member of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry. “Have fun with it, since it's your final-touch accent and can add charm!"
We scoured the internet for cabinet hardware retailers and evaluated them based on pricing, selection, return policy, and current shipping estimates.

Hardware from 70 brands
Easily filtered results
Clear in-stock and shipping info
Daunting massive selection
Cabinet Parts was started in 1997 by two friends, and the site gets generally good reviews for customer service. It has more than 30,000 products from 70 companies and uses several shipping centers within the United States, so generally, you'll get items quickly. To make shopping easier, each product page lists the quantity remaining in stock, as well as estimated shipping dates.
The site design makes it easy to browse and filter results by categories, such as knob size, center-to-center measurement, finish, style, and manufacturer. It also stocks replacement hinges (including older European styles) and has an online tool to help you determine which product to order.
Besides classic styles, including this affordable Amerock Allison Value Nickel Knob, Cabinet Parts stocks more unusual choices, such as the Atlas Boutique Crystal Knob, which would be fun in a tween's bedroom; and the Hickory Hardware Unfinished Wood Pull, which can be stained to match your furniture. There's also a wish list feature, so you can save items and create lists based on different rooms or projects.
Return policy: Items must be unused and in the original packaging. | Return window: 30 days | Payment options: Major credit cards and PayPal. | Shipping time: Generally within 1-2 days.
Many in-person locations
Some complaints about customer service
This popular big-box retailer has an impressive selection of cabinet hardware. There are nearly 50 brands available, including popular names such as Moen, Kohler, and Richelieu. The site is easy to use, and shoppers can filter by rating, brand, finish, various dimensions, and more. If you're on a tight timeline and don't want to wait for shipping, you also can filter search results by "free store pickup" at your local Lowe's.
There are thousands of options for knobs and pulls, including many that are ADA-compliant, such as these Richelieu Antique Cup Oval Drawer pulls, which come in eight different finishes; or the ultramodern Laurey Cosmo Satin Nickel Square Cabinet Knobs. Those who are trying to stick to a budget can appreciate the more than 1,000 options costing $1 to $5 for individual pieces, and you can filter to find them. Lowe's also has a fairly generous return window (90 days), with items brought to a store or shipped back.
Return policy: Items must be unused and in the original packaging. | Return window: 90 days | Payment options: Major credit cards and PayPal | Shipping time: Generally ship or ready for pickup within 2 to 3 days.
Large indie artisan selection
Great for someone who is focused
Easy seller communication
Tricky bulk ordering
If you can dream it, you can probably find it here—a search for cabinet hardware on the arty megasite Etsy brings up nearly 64,000 results. Those who search thoughtfully can uncover treasures such as intricately carved antique cast-iron drawer pulls from Glow Restorations; vintage Italian Murano glass knobs from Eclectic Design by Ellie; or a lot of brightly painted ceramic knobs (no two alike) from Schwet Creation.
Shoppers should read reviews carefully and also check individual shop policies. Some sellers might be overseas and therefore might charge higher shipping rates. You can use many different filters, such as restricting your search to U.S.-based shops. You also can limit your search to handmade items, vintage finds, or both, or widen it to include a larger swath of retailers.
Return policy: Based on seller | Return window: Based on seller | Payment options: Varies, but shops often accept PayPal, credit cards, and Klarna | Shipping time: Varies; shoppers can filter results by estimated arrival time to see items with faster shipping dates.
Familiarity of a large retailer
Good sale section
Shipping info requires checkout
It's almost always worth checking out the cabinet hardware selection at Anthropologie. Although it’s not huge—at the time of publication, there were fewer than 150 knobs and handles—the hardware tends to be distinctive-looking, as if you bought it at an artist's studio or vintage store. Recent standout offerings have included the sculptural Adeline Knotted Ball Knobs, which appear elegant when eyed from any direction, as well as Mother of Pearl Brass Handles, which would give new life to a dresser or nightstand.
The site is fairly easy to search. Because popular products tend to sell out or become back-ordered, it's worth using the "Ready to Ship" checkbox as you filter results. User reviews tend to be robust and helpful.
One thing we found a little annoying is that unlike sites that show real-time shipping and in-stock information on product pages, Anthropologie doesn't show estimated delivery times until you’ve started the checkout process.
Return policy: Merchandise must be unused with tags on; $5.95 restocking fee for mailed returns | Return window: 30 days (extended October 1 to December 31) | Payment options: Major credit cards, PayPal, Klarna, AfterPay, ApplePay, China Union Pay | Shipping time: Generally, in-stock items ship next day; options include standard, express, and overnight.
Solid brass construction
Coordinating lighting also sold
Large sale section
This lighting-focused home goods store is a sibling of West Elm, Pottery Barn, and Williams Sonoma. It has a small but stylish cabinet hardware section (about 150 items) that includes many types of pulls, including drawer, finger, and edge, as well as cabinet knobs, backplates, latches, and more. Even within a finish type, you often have several choices. For example, you can choose among aged brass, unlacquered brass (which develops a patina with use), and satin brass. Don’t know where to start? Rejuvenation also has a helpful buying guide for cabinet hardware.
Rejuvenation has a fairly large selection of appliance pulls, such as the Barker, which is made from oil-rubbed bronze and comes in two sizes. Wish to add a little more oomph to your cabinets? Add a backplate to coordinate with the knob, such as the Star, which has a mid-century modern sensibility.
Return policy: Receipt required, merchandise must be unused with tags on | Return window: 30 days | Payment options: Major credit cards | Shipping time: In-stock items arrive in 4 to 12 business days
Stylish, unexpected handle silhouettes
Made specifically for IKEA
Limited U.S. availability
Prices listed in euros
Superfront is based in Stockholm, Sweden, and its premise is simple. It makes stylish pieces (such as doors, drawer fronts, and handles) for popular IKEA products such as the Pax wardrobe and the Metod kitchen cabinets. Knobs start at about $20 each, so they're a little pricey, but the distinctive designs may be worth it.
The selection is small but focused, with an emphasis on form rather than quantity. Playful shapes include the Butterfly knob, which would be fun in a kid's room; leather handles such as the Trunk, which comes with a choice of rivets (such as copper or brass); and the unusual Balls Stone, which is crafted from Carrara marble and comes in both a deep green as well as white.
Superfront guarantees that its items will work with IKEA products. But if you're adding the handles to other furniture, be sure to measure carefully, as IKEA's U.S. and European Union (EU) dimensions may differ; you may need to tweak your installation by filling holes or adding a backplate. As of publication, if you reside outside the EU, you can order only handles and legs from the website. If you organize delivery yourself (view the instructions), you can order anything from the company's Pax and Bestå selections.
Return policy: Merchandise must be unused with tags on; buyer pays shipping costs. | Return window: 14 days | Payment options: Klarna and Dibs | Shipping time: In-stock items typically ship in 1 to 2 days from Sweden via FedEx but may take awhile due to customs.

Other retailers may charge less
Considering the name, you'd hope that Restoration Hardware (or RH, as it's now known) would have a worthy selection of knobs and handles. Although RH isn't as large as a big-box store or a clearinghouse site that focuses on hardware, each piece is beautifully designed and built to withstand heavy use, thanks to materials that include solid brass and drop-forged stainless steel. Prices start around $20 per knob, so RH is ideal for those who are looking to invest in hardware for the long term.
A few standouts include the Camden Crystal Knob, a faceted sphere that evokes 1940s and 1950s European furniture; the Lambeth Knurled Knob, which has a pleasing texture, thanks to its smooth top and ridged sides; and the Colliers Knob, which is cast from a single piece and is reminiscent of 1960s modern sculpture. Most pieces come in at least five finishes, such as satin nickel, lacquered burnished brass, and polished chrome, and they coordinate with other RH items, including door knobs, wall hooks, and towel bars. The site also has a useful tool for checking in-stock items by zip code.
Return policy: Proof of purchase required | Return window: 30 days | Payment options: Major credit cards | Shipping time: 3 to 7 days via UPS for standard-delivery items
Lots of price points
Some high restocking fees
With 300,000-plus items to choose from, shoppers should visit MyKnobs with a good sense of what they need. Fortunately, the site is easy to search and navigate, and it allows customers to search within a group of results, which can help narrow options. Budget-conscious buyers can appreciate the wide range of price points, starting with options such as these Liberty Hardware Dome-Topped Polished Chrome Knobs that cost less than $2 each. Customers can order up to three sample items, with the cost credited to them if they purchase.
There's also a large selection of hardware aimed at kids (close to 150 options at time of publication), and choices go beyond the usual pastels or baseballs. Whether your children are into emojis, flip flops, dinosaurs, or something else, you should find plenty of choices.
Note that when it comes to returns, policies may vary by vendor, so check the returns page carefully. Some sellers charge no restocking fee at all, while others might charge as much as 25 percent.
Return policy: Items must be returned in the original packaging; policies vary by vendor (see full list) | Return window: 30 days | Payment options: Major credit cards | Shipping time: 7 to 10 business days for economy saver; expedited options also available
Buster + Punch
Lots of coordinating items
Site could be easier to use
Short return window
Buster + Punch started in east London, England, creating motorbikes. The company eventually began working with rare metals to make cabinet hardware, lighting, and furniture. Given the company's origins, it's not surprising that pieces such as the Burnt Steel Precious Bar, which has a hanging chain and a blue finish (due to never being exposed to heat), feel more like funky jewelry than something you'd use to secure your liquor cabinet.
There are plenty of straightforward, well-made pieces, such as the Linear Furniture Knobs, which, at less than $40 per pair for the stainless steel finish, feels fairly affordable when compared with merchandise on other high-end sites. Of course, a single 12-inch Steel Pull Bar, with a backplate and the company's signature diamond-cut knurling pattern, costs more than $160, but it's sturdy enough to use on heavy drawers or appliance fronts.
The site lags a bit and doesn't have the most intuitive interface, but the selection is manageable enough that you can easily sort through the options. Finally, to ensure that items are shipped in a timely fashion, stateside shoppers should make sure they browse the U.S.-based site.
Return policy: Items must be in resalable condition; 15 percent restocking fee | Return window: 14 days | Payment options: Major credit cards | Shipping time: 3 to 5 days from time of order for in-stock items
Olde Good Things
Many items have stories
Shoppers can send requests
Short return window
Shipping not calculated
Olde Good Things was first conceived as a large stall in a Manhattan flea market and is now one of the largest architectural dealers in the United States. The company specializes in salvaging antiques from pre-Depression and 19th-century buildings and refurbishing them for sale. You might find brass backplates salvaged from New York's Waldorf-Astoria hotel, hexagon-shaped glass vintage dresser knobs, and Art Deco chrome drawer pulls. The rest of the cabinet hardware selection is fairly large, with hundreds of options from manufacturers such as Yale & Towne, Corbin, Sargent, Russell & Erwin, Stanley, and Knob Hill.
One of the nice things about the site is that you can find more unusual pieces here, such as sixfold and emblematic knobs, which are known for their intricate detailing. Olde Good Things also welcomes special requests from customers—if you want something specific, you can reach out to them, and the company can check availability in its warehouses.
Besides the commerce site, shoppers can visit one of five brick-and-mortar locations: three in New York, one in Los Angeles, and one in Scranton, Pennsylvania. But the online shopping experience still has some hiccups: Shipping charges, for example, aren't calculated online and must be emailed to you after you've placed your order.
Return policy: Items purchased online may be returned. | Return window: 10 days | Payment options: Major credit cards, checks, and money orders | Shipping time: Varies; most items ship UPS ground.
Wide range of prices
Quality may vary
Overstock is a comprehensive clearinghouse. A search for "cabinet hardware" brought up more than 3,500 options; more than 500 cost less than $15. Note that many of the offerings are made from zinc, which tends to be less durable than stainless steel, iron, or brass, so sort by material if you're looking for something especially sturdy.
You can find frequent promotions, plus filters for sale and clearance items, that help sweeten the deals even more. As with other behemoth sites, it helps to have a good sense of what you want to buy before you start to browse, but plenty of filters help you narrow it down.
For those who are looking to buy in bulk, Overstock also conveniently bundles items, such as these dependable GlideRite Stainless Steel Cabinet Pulls. There are also items in more unusual materials, including acrylic, stone, resin, and pewter.
Return policy: Items must be returned in the original packaging; buyer pays shipping in cases of "buyer's remorse"; Overstock covers fees for damaged or defective items | Return window: 30 days | Payment options: Major credit cards, PayPal, Klarna | Shipping time: 1 to 2 business days for most items

Site can feel overwhelming
Build.com, also known as Build by Ferguson, is an online home improvement retailer with showrooms throughout the country. You can find thousands of types of cabinet hardware, and the site can feel intimidating at times, but shoppers with patience are rewarded with lots of choices. A helpful online tool helps buyers design and manage projects by allowing them to save favorite products, track spending, and even invite others to collaborate.
The selection is extensive. Besides cabinet knobs and drawer pulls, you can find organizing tools such as cabinet storage racks, hinges, and drawer slides. A special luxury section features pieces that include the Amerock Esquire Bar Knob, with an intricate knurled surface; and the Top Knobs Chareau Geometric Cabinet Knob, which comes in six finishes. Prices tend to be reasonable, even in the luxury section.

Excellent customer service

Non-specific "Material" filter
Fans of the popular home decor site Wayfair can find a large selection of cabinet hardware, with thousands of items. Unfortunately, since all types of metal are lumped together, the site can be a little tricky to search if you're hoping to narrow by material. Alloys are grouped with more durable materials, such as stainless steel and brass, although you can filter by finish.
Those with the patience to sift through the numerous offerings can find playful options such as the rhinestone-studded Radiance Mushroom Knobs, which cost about $7 each. There's also the more traditional Wayfair Basics line: a mix of cabinet knobs, drawer pulls (including cup and bar styles), and coordinating doorknobs. If you're looking for appliance pulls for kitchen cabinets, you'll have many to choose from, such as the beefy 12-inch Atlas Homewares Center-to-Center Bar Pull, which comes in eight finishes.
Return policy: Items must be in resalable condition; buyer pays shipping. | Return window: 30 days | Payment options: Major credit cards, checks (personal and cashier's), money orders, PayPal, wire transfers, AfterPay, Klarna, Wayfair Financing | Shipping time: Generally 1 to 8 business days, depending on method.

If you want something distinctive with a specific aesthetic, try Buster + Punch (for funky), Olde Good Things (for traditional), or Superfront (for modern). Those who love to shop in person might try Lowe's, Target, or Restoration Hardware, depending on their budget.
What to Look for When Buying Cabinet Hardware
Before ordering, carefully read the fine print on the return policy. Most retailers offer returns, but there are often caveats, such as requiring the buyer to pay for return shipping. Some also require the items to be in the original packaging. Sometimes, a company offers store credit instead of money back. In the case of something such as cabinet hardware, you likely can’t return it if you've already installed it, even if you have all the pieces. Also note that on certain sites, such as Amazon, Etsy, and MyKnobs, the return policy may vary, depending on the seller or brand.
The return window usually starts from the day of delivery, but as always, check the fine print. Many places offer 30 days, but some windows are shorter (14 days), and others may allow more time. "Especially when shopping online, I would recommend finding a retailer with a good return policy," says interior designer Grace Baena of the online furniture marketplace Kaiyo.
Major credit cards are most common, but some companies also accept checks, wire transfers (which may be useful if you're ordering from overseas), PayPal, and ApplePay, or pay-over-time options such as AfterPay or Affirm Financing.
Many companies are trying to be upfront about supply chain disruptions. Some sites differentiate between “processing time” and “shipping time,” so read the disclaimers carefully. Some companies give you the option to filter search results by items in stock, which can help if you're on a rushed timeline.
What makes good cabinet hardware?
"Cabinet hardware tends to be a small element that really brings a space together, so it’s important to choose a style that not only complements the design of the room, but that will stay stylish," Baena says. For a few reasons, she generally prefers a more minimal look. "I tend to recommend simpler hardware," she says, "because it’s less likely to catch fingers and clothes, which is especially important with kids, and because it’s less likely to seem dated after a few years."
Chapman leans toward stainless steel. "Stainless steel shows the best results in durability tests, it’s highly resistant to corrosion, and you can clean it easily," he says.
If you're choosing hardware for a drawer that holds many heavy objects, select a pull with double-screw hardware. "Most drawer boxes hold 75 pounds of storage, and that double-screw hardware pull gives better balance and security," says Helen Stapper, president of Cabinet Style Studio LTD. For appliance fronts, make sure the hardware is sturdy and recommended for heavy use.
When should you replace your cabinet hardware?
To give your cabinets a refreshed look, consider swapping out their hardware. "Hardware, such as knobs and pulls, can become dated over time," says April Morse, custom cabinet builder and owner of Weber Company in Lodi, California. Cabinets also may take a beating as the years progress. "Hardware may collect plaque, corrode, get scratched, or fade—you're not obliged to keep using shabby hardware, even if it still technically works," says Sean Chapman, a professional carpenter and founder of Tools’n’Goods. While metal hardware may be able to get a new life by polishing it, wood handles and pulls show more wear over time and may need to be replaced sooner than metal ones.
What tools do you need to install cabinet hardware?
Chapman shared this list:
- tape measure
- straightedge or level
- finishing nails
- masking tape
- woodworking jig
- wood putty and stain (if you're filling holes)
You can also use a cabinet hardware jig to help you locate the screw holes and align them correctly for installation.
