Bathroom Remodeling Tips: How to Choose the Right Cabinet Knobs | Kensington, MD

If you’re considering bathroom remodeling, don’t forget about replacing your cabinet knobs. Replacing the cabinet knobs in your bathroom is one of the best ways to give this room an inexpensive facelift. It also requires a different strategy than when buying knobs for a kitchen, and here are some things you should keep in mind when shopping.

Rustproof knobs are always a good idea in the bathroom, as high levels of moisture can easily cause damage. For this reason, knobs made from aluminum or stainless steel can be good choices. Avoid plastic knobs, as high humidity levels can easily cause them to crack or break.

Choosing knobs with no sharp edges is a good idea, especially if you have small children in the house. You’re more likely to brush against the knobs of your bathroom cabinets than you are your kitchen cabinets. If you come in contact with sharp edges, this could easily tear your skin, especially if you are not wearing clothing.

Selecting knobs that can be childproofed is also a good idea, even if there are no small children in your household. That’s because you may need to keep medicines locked away or prevent pets from getting into cleaning products. Make sure the knobs you choose will accommodate childproofing hardware so that you can add these safety features without worry.

Attractiveness is always a concern when choosing bathroom cabinet knobs. Just because they must be rustproof, childproof, and contain no sharp edges does not mean you can’t find ones that are stylish and attractive. In fact, you’ll probably find there are so many possible choices available, that deciding on exactly the right knobs is a difficult decision.
