Revamp your space: transforming furniture with new handles

Revamp your space: transforming furniture with new handles

When it comes to giving your home a fresh and updated look, you don’t always need to invest in new furniture. Sometimes a simple change to the detailing can make the world of difference. One of the easiest and cost-effective ways to transform your furniture is by replacing the handles or knobs.

How to replace furniture handles & knobs

Replacing furniture handles and knobs is a DIY-friendly project that requires minimal tools and time – here’s a basic guide to get you started:

Measure carefully – before purchasing replacement handles or knobs, measure the existing holes to ensure a good fit. For bar type handles, there will usually be two holes and it’s important to measure the distance between the attachment points to ensure that the new handles will match up – at Sarus Originals we are happy to tweak a design if a customer requires a custom distance.

Tools – Typically you’ll just need a screwdriver, it’s as simple as that! However if new holes are needed you’ll need a drill.

Remove the old handles/knobs – unscrew the old handles/knobs and remove them but do keep the fixing screws as you may need them for the new hardware.

Attach the new handles/knobs – align the new handles/knobs with the existing holes and use the fixing screws to secure them.

Step back and admire the transformation!

Which handles should I choose?

Handles are available in a variety of materials including metal, wood, ceramic, glass an acrylic – choose materials which complement your furniture and decor.

Here at Sarus Originals, our collection of handles and knobs is crafted from Valchromat®, an ecologically sustainable and hard-wearing FSC® certified wood product which combines the natural features of wood with the brightness of colour created with organic dyes.
