Cabinet Hardware Placement Guide

One of my most favorite details in the Greystone kitchen is also one of the smallest: the cabinet latch. I only have three installed, but when used thoughtfully, cabinet latches instantly elevate the overall feel of the kitchen.

There’s something so utilitarian and old-fashioned about them, don’t you agree? They’re a mix of old-world charm and modern European style. Although cabinet latches are no longer necessary to keep cabinet doors closed like in the old days, their vintage appeal cannot be denied.

Honestly the most beautiful of hardware options, latches add so much timeless character to a kitchen. They’ve become quite popular in designer kitchens in recent years because of their ability to add instant historic charm to a newly built or newly redesigned kitchen. From a functional standpoint, however, latches make the most sense in an area meant for storage rather than everyday use. In the Greystone kitchen, I opted for latches in 3 locations:

1) above the refrigerator,

3) above the oven range, in the cabinet that houses the vent hood.

Install latches on cabinet doors, never drawers. They are quite versatile in terms of placement and positioning – mostly because they are used sparingly. In the Greystone kitchen, I installed them so the edge lined up with the inner edge of the rail.

Below I’ve rounded up some of my favorites in three finishes: brass, matte black, and polished nickel. If you’re looking for a guide on installing hardware, you’re in luck! I shared detailed instructions earlier this week!
