Cabinet knobs are usually attached to cabinet doors using a single screw or point of contact with the drawer. They can be made out of various materials from solid brass to glass. Knobs are commonly manufactured out of brass, zinc or die cast, stainless steel, and bronze. Other options include the trendy crystal knobs and natural stone knobs. If you choose to go with a square knob, higher quality hardware will be designed so that the knob will not shift or rotate over time.
Cabinet knobs are the most simple and basic type of cabinet hardware to install. Generally, a cabinet knob is attached to the cabinet door or drawer front by means of a single screw. Cabinet knobs can be made in a wide variety of materials. Manufactured metal materials can include brass, especially solid brass cabinet knobs; zinc cabinet knobs, sometimes also called die cast, are also common. Stainless steel cabinet knobs, often found in the kitchen, and other metals such as bronze in our rustic cabinet hardware, are just some of the wide variety of options of metals.
Other materials besides metal can also be used to make cabinet knobs. Ashtbhuj or Metal Hardware Export has a wide variety of crystal cabinet knobs. Other natural materials include marble cabinet knobs, mined from huge quarries around the world; and natural stone cabinet knobs, which are found in rivers right here in the India.
When designing cabinet knobs for the manufacturing process, Ashtbhuj or Metal handicraft Export overwhelmingly chooses solid brass cabinet knobs as our material of choice. Solid brass is proven to be one of the most durable and high-quality materials in the industry and provides the most value over the long term. In fact, finishes applied to solid brass hardware are over 200% more durable than those applied to comparable items made from zinc. “To-the-core” materials such as stainless steel and blended bronzes are also quite popular and are very effective at maintaining their finish and color over a long period of use.
Cabinet knobs also come in a variety of styles: traditional cabinet knobs, transitional cabinet knobs, contemporary cabinet knobs, rustic cabinet knobs… the list continues on and on. Classic designs such as the 100 series knob are among our best sellers.
Because they come in different sizes and shapes, knobs can also be used in a variety of different applications. For example, small cabinet knobs are perfect for small applications such as pull-out bread boards and butcher blocks. Oblong-shaped cabinet knobs are excellent choices for doors with narrow moldings, or for long, thin doors. If you are looking to cover up weathering on a cabinet left by another knob, oftentimes a cabinet knob with a wide base or attached backplate, will be a suitable option.
