So I located a source for “basket” handles that match the rest of our kitchen cabinet hardware. These aren't the handles we'd have chosen, but they're ok – and for now it's simpler to match them than to try to replace them. Naturally the holes for the new hardware didn't match the holes for the old hardware – so when the cabinet was refinished, we had them fill in the old holes for us, with plastic wood.
For a few weeks now, I've had a box full of cabinet handles that needed to be installed. Today was a good day for it :)
The doors were easy for me to decide where to mount the handles: I just matched what the rest of the cabinets did. For the drawers, it's a little more complicated. I discovered (with a little googling) that there are three schools of thought about how high to mount drawer pulls:
- Find the shortest (height-wise) drawer and center its pull – then mount all the rest of the pulls the same distance down from the top of the drawer.
- Mount each drawer's pull vertically in the center of the drawer.
- Mount each drawer's pull about one third of the drawer's height from the top.
