French Cabinet Knob Varieties

Cabinet knobs come in a variety of sizes, shapes, colors and finishes. If you are interested in French country cabinet knobs, you will want to look for knobs that are small and made from natural materials like metal, wood or stone. If you select a metal knob, you will want to look for a metal finish that looks rustic, rusted or that has a patina.

French Cabinet Knob Installation

The installation of French country cabinet knobs is very simple. All you will need is a screwdriver. Start by removing the old knob by unscrewing the knob from the inside of the cabinet. Next, you will place the screw from the new knob through the hole in the cabinet from the inside of the cabinet (so that the head of the screw faces into the cabinet). Insert the screwdriver into the head of the screw and hold it still while you twist on the face of the knob. Hand tighten the knob. Finally, hold onto the knob and tighten it a little more with the screwdriver from inside the cabinet.
