One of the most commonly asked questions we receive here at MyKnobs.com is what to do when you already have existing hardware that doesn’t seem to be of common hole spacing. The following are a few great alternatives if you can not find the size you need for your kitchen upgrade project:
- We offer back plates that can be used to cover existing holes so that new standard holes may be drilled. They can also used to cover up old scratches or markings left by old cabinet hardware. It can also be used to protect the cabinet or door from scratches and heavy use.
- Finally there is also the option to fill the holes with wood filler followed by a light sanding with fine-grit sandpaper so you can drill new standard size holes.
Replacing cabinet hardware on kitchen cabinets is perhaps the most inexpensive way to dramatically change the look of any kitchen. Whether the hardware is damaged or outdated, changing the pulls and cabinet hinges is a simple, low-cost way to update any kitchen decor. If you cannot afford a major kitchen overhaul, you might be pleasantly surprised by the dramatic impact of simply replacing cabinet hardware.
