Updating kitchen cabinets with Hamptons drawer handles

Upgrading your kitchen cabinets with Hampton's drawer handles can be a great way to give your kitchen a fresh and stylish look. Hampton's style often incorporates a blend of traditional and contemporary design elements, making it versatile for various kitchen aesthetics. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to go about upgrading your kitchen cabinets with Hampton's drawer handles:

1. Gather Supplies:

2. Measure and Plan: Measure the existing handle's hole spacing (center to center) to ensure your new Hampton's handles will fit the existing holes. If they don't match, you may need to fill the existing holes and drill new ones. 

3. Remove Existing Handles: Using a screwdriver or drill, carefully remove the existing handles or knobs from the cabinet drawers. Keep any screws or hardware in a safe place, as you might need them later.

4. Clean and Prep: Clean the cabinet fronts thoroughly to remove any dirt, grease, or residues. This ensures a clean surface for attaching the new handles. If you plan to paint or refinish the cabinets, this is a good time to do so.

5. Handle Placement: Decide where you want to place the new handles. Use a level and a pencil or a template jig to mark the spots for drilling. You can use painter's tape to create a guide for drilling if you're concerned about pencil marks on your cabinets.

6. Drill Holes: Carefully drill holes for the new handles following the marks you made. Use a drill bit size that is the best fit. If you're not comfortable drilling, you might consider seeking assistance from someone with experience.

7. Attach the Handles: Insert the screws provided with the handles through the back of the cabinet front and align them with the holes you drilled. Tighten the screws using a screwdriver or a drill (on a low setting to avoid over-tightening).

8. Check and Adjust: After attaching a few handles, step back and check if they are level and properly aligned. Adjust the placement if needed before attaching the rest of the handles.

9. Finishing Touches: Once all the handles are attached and aligned, give your cabinets a final wipe down to remove any fingerprints or smudges.

By following these steps, you can successfully upgrade your kitchen cabinets with Hampton's style drawer handles, giving your kitchen a fresh and inviting look.
