I’ve been searching for modern farmhouse cabinet pulls for the kitchen in my new house.
I know it’s a little early in the game but I want to have everything picked out before I need it. I’m a planner and I just can’t help it.
New Construction Coming Soon!
According to our builder, the construction of our new home should begin next week – the week of Thanksgiving. I sure hope he’s right on this one. I’ll keep you posted.
My kitchen will have 10′ ceilings and the cabinets will go all the way to the ceiling. There will be crown molding between the cabinets and ceiling.
I don’t like having a gap between the cabinets and the ceiling. My current house has a gap and it’s another area to have to dust and keep clean. Of course, that’s just my personal preference.
So, I’m going with stacked kitchen cabinets. My regular-sized cabinets will have smaller ones stacked on top. I’ll keep seasonal items in the top cabinets.
My current (older) home has 8′ ceilings throughout. Stacked cabinets wouldn’t be a good fit in the little kitchen.
My kitchen cabinets will be similar to the photo below. Except they won’t have glass inserts. The smaller top cabinets will have knobs and the lower will have pulls.
The drawers will probably have even longer pulls. I like to mix things up a bit.
I’ve also decided to go with brass hardware for my kitchen cabinets. Yes, I’m stepping out of my comfort zone. Since my cabinets will be white and my island will be navy, I think the pulls below are perfect.
There was a time when we were told to use the same finishes throughout the house but those days are long gone. I’ve even seen kitchens that have mixed metals and the designer knocked the design right out of the park.
How To Choose The Perfect Cabinet Pulls
What’s your design style? Is it traditional? Contemporary? Modern Farmhouse? Mid-Century Modern? I’m assuming it’s a little bit modern farmhouse since you’re here (thanks for stopping by!).
Function and beauty are the two main reasons to fall in love with farmhouse cabinet pulls. Then, you need to decide if you want all knobs (the most inexpensive option), pulls, or a combination of the two. Personally, I like to combine pulls and knobs to keep things interesting.
If you’re remodeling a kitchen, you’ll be surprised at the difference new pulls will make.
My niece and her farmer husband recently built a beautiful farmhouse. She told me to make sure I didn’t choose open-ended pulls for the bottom cabinets because of clothing getting caught on the ends. That’s a great reminder!

Most of these cabinet pulls come in several finishes so don’t be put off if you don’t care for the finish shown.
