We've divided our picks into themes - have a scroll to find the type of knob that works for your home.
When people think of drawer pulls and knobs for upcycle projects they tend to think of ceramic knobs. So we thought we’d start there.
A lot of the other categories below will also feature some ceramic choices but this is our pick of the classic country style ceramic drawer pulls that tend to be a lot of upcyclers go to’s – maybe you’ll find a new favorite?
These are the definition of classic with a twist, they have a number of colors including this green and a lovely duck egg blue/teal color that never seems to go out of style. The fossil shape gives them that something a bit different.
We love this copper pipe style drawer handle and think it would provide a modern feel to a bathroom vanity or kitchen setting. You could of course also do a DIY version of this if you have the skills and the spare copper pipe!
Our second choice for an unusual copper knob is this lattice style round knob we found on Etsy. We’d love to see these used on a rich royal blue or deep forest green cabinet to really make them stand out!
Classically Modern Drawer Pulls
Sometimes simplicity speaks volumes. This selection of drawer knobs and pulls are all about the impact of classic clean style with a modern edge.
The hexagon shape of the simple bar style handles above by Do Up Shop are on trend now, but the simple styling and sleek designs means they are unlikely to go out of fashion even when cabinet hardware trends change.
The set of four silver knobs is from Jack Accessories and although we added it in for the trendy bear our favorite in the set has to be that handsome duck. Doesn’t it remind you of a fancy old style umbrella or walking cane handle shaped like a duck? Gorgeous dresser knobs if you can find the right piece of furniture for it.
These are definitely more for a child's room but still plenty classy. So cute!
Star Shaped Knobs
Star shaped knobs can suit a lot of spaces and pieces of furniture.
They are definitely more playful than some other choices. For that reason they can suit a nursery or kids room, but then also be reused in future elsewhere in the house like your craft room for example.
The second photo is from Hooked Pull Me Knob You actually only see the front of these pulls once installed, as they are designed to go over the top or side of your drawer or cabinet door. This is modern cabinet hardware ideal for kitchen cabinets and sideboards.
These fractal-colored wooden knobs from Brook and Birch Co give that hint of color with some rustic wooden charm thrown in. Put these dresser drawer pulls on a white piece to make them pop or match them with a piece in a similar wood to tone down their impact.
Resin & Wood Knobs
You can do amazing things with resin if you know how to use it. We chose two versions of wood and resin unique drawer knobs to feature here.
