Bar Length (Handles not pubs!)

Recommended Posts

I'm bother I'm procrastinating again....... :D

 

So I've just designed a kitchen on DIY-Kitchens. Its a shaker style but with a modern presentation. The decision is to go with bar style handles but you have to select your own length for cabinet doors and drawers. 

I asked them to say whats the "standard" and they said "its personal choice but keep the handle 100mm from the ends of the drawers"............no don't give me such tough decisions!

 

So far I've selected:

 

160mm for doors

and 224 for drawers:

All the units are "hi-line" and there are only two drawer units:

 

a 600mm 4 drawer unit:

and a 900mm pan drawer:

Should the bar handles perhaps be longer on the pan drawers?

Any other views?

 

Help!

Used 650mm bars on the 900 pan drawer and they look fine.

Personally I'd go 160mm for anything vertical and a third of the width ( or as near as you can get) for the width. Long bar handles on shaker style doors can look to over powering, different if it was on a modern slab style door/drawer front.

Thanks for the input guys. I've gone for 160mm on the doors. 

224mm on the 600mm drawers and

354mm on the 900 drawers.
