The Best Unique Glass Cabinet Knobs And Pulls For Your Home
Glass cabinet knobs and pulls are an easy way to add unique beauty to your kitchen, bathroom, or other built-in cabinetry.
I think of cabinet hardware as the jewelry of your kitchen. It is the way you add that “extra something special” to the space and make it feel complete.
Finding unique and eye-catching hardware really helps to give each kitchen it’s own personality.
If you’re looking for something beautiful to dress up your kitchen that goes beyond the typical brushed nickel knobs and pulls you see everywhere, then considering a glass option could just what you need!
There are options ranging from antique designs to complement a traditional style home, all the way to ultra-modern and sleek styles for those looking to enhance their contemporary space.
The wide variety of styles also come with a variety of colors and textures. Crystal cut, bubbles, and every color of the rainbow are available to add pizzazz to your home’s cabinetry.

I am so happy to see a reemergence of glass knobs and pulls in the world of cabinet hardware.
As a fan of all things with depth, reflection and sparkle - glass and mirrors are always high on my list of favorites to add to a space!
In the past I had often thought of glass cabinet hardware as being specifically related to knobs. I think it is because it is more common to see clear glass knobs in older, or more traditional style homes. Something like these:
As the years have gone on I have started to notice more and more options for glass cabinet pulls - including glass cup pulls.
In addition to regular cabinet pulls, there are also glass appliance pulls for those of you planning to panel your refrigerator or other appliances.
Glass Vs. Acrylic Cabinet Knobs And Pulls
If you have been looking around for clear hardware you may have noticed that sometimes it can be hard to tell if a knob or pull is glass or actually made of acrylic material.
So, what are acrylic knobs and pulls made out of?
Acrylic material is a very hard plastic that can be difficult to distinguish from glass in it’s appearance because it can have exceptional clarity and reflects light in a similar way. It is lightweight and durable which also makes it a great stand-in for glass in many settings.
Both glass and acrylic cabinet hardware are offered in beautiful, versatile styles.
I have noticed acrylic options tend to be more common with modern styles of hardware while glass knobs and pulls can be in more likely found traditional and antique styles.
To keep things simple, I have included both glass and glass look-alike acrylic knobs and pulls in this article as the look is often so similar you probably wouldn’t be able to tell a difference unless you were told which one it was.
Without further ado, here are some of my favorite glass cabinet knobs, pulls, and appliance pulls:

When Selecting Glass Cabinet Knobs And Pulls It Is Important To Consider:
All glass cabinet knobs and pulls will have at least some amount of metal on them.
While not necessary, many people choose to match the metal on their hardware to other metals within the space on items such as the faucet or appliances.
Whether you decide to match the metals or not, it is important to remember that because of the reflective properties of glass, that metal color will show through the hardware and impact the overall look.
If you want to minimize the appearance of the metal, going with a lighter color, such as a brushed nickel or chrome, may help to ensure it doesn’t stand out too much.
On the other hand, if you prefer to have the metal be part of the overall look and want it to reflect through the glass of the knob or pull, then going with a contrasting color such as a rose gold, brass, or black will play up the look of the metal you choose.
And at the end of the day, no matter what you choose, you can’t go wrong with something as unique and beautiful as these glass cabinet knobs and pulls!
