What are the best materials for cabinet handles?

If you need durable and strong handles that can withstand a high volume of work, then you should choose steel cabinet handles. These handles, will perfectly tolerate the passage of time, corrosion and rust, all thanks to their robust alloy.


If, on the other hand, you require rather light but durable handles, then you should choose aluminum handles. These accessories are corrosion resistant and a little more economical than steel handles, in addition to adding an avant-garde touch to your decor.


Choosing zamak handles is a good choice when you want variety of designs combined with hardness and strength.  This is because this alloy of metals such as copper, aluminum, zinc and magnesium, is widely used to manufacture different and firm cabinet handles.

Its versatility and consistency, quite similar to that of steel, make it highly appreciated, in addition to being more economical handles.


The handles you choose made of strong plastics such as ABS/PVC, are specially designed to withstand much better wear and tear in outdoor spaces. They are very resistant to impacts due to their composition, and you can also get them in multiple shapes and colors, as it is an easily moldable material.

The variety is overwhelming, but don’t worry: we have made a selection for you, which will guide you much better in choosing the style and decoration you need.

A detail that you should not overlook to choose the best cabinet handle from the design of the same, is that it combines perfectly with the style you already have defined in your spaces.

Modern cabinet handle

Cabinet handles in this style feature clean lines, both straight and curved. Their designs are minimalist, without elaborate embellishments, in metallic or ochre colors. Most of them have two screw points for installation.


These handles evoke past times, without leaving behind all the style and elegance that characterized them in their time. They are of more elaborate designs, with a fusion of different materials such as zamak and ceramic and aged or copper finishes.


Knobs are a cabinet handle with a single point of installation. Their shapes are quite diverse, with round and spherical ones being found in greater numbers, in ceramic finishes, with quite simple or very ornate designs.


The profiles are elements to hold the doors of the furniture; they differ from the common handles by their size, in most cases they are continuous and can cover the entire width or length of the door. Another feature is their installation, which is done in such a way that they are hidden from view or very inconspicuous.

In short: what you should keep in mind

The first thing is to know the type of closet where you will place your handles, as well as the style you have established for the space. Another crucial aspect to consider is the type of material and how often you will use the cabinet: this will tell you which handle you should use.
