Have to attach several Kitchen Door handles on a new kitchen (2 on a
wall cab, 3 on floor cabs)), and 1 Drawer handle and 1 handle on a
door under drawer
Not descided on which handles yet, bow or rod hondles will obviously
need two holes, single knob has the benefit of only 1 hole!
B and Q do a Drilling Guide Template, is this overkill, anyone got any
recommendations for where the handles should go .... I know this
sounds silly but not considered it before I assume single knobs go
half way down the door, where as bow or rod handles can go half way
down or two thirds up ????
We have stainless steel 'bow' handles in our kitchen, I fitted them to
the doors myself, the doors were the only things we had made. I did
the worktops etc.
Drawer handles we have exactly in the middle. Door handles we just
eyed it up, decided the best place for them and then mounted them all
at that height. The under worktop doors have the handles nearer the
top, the wall cuipboards have the handles quite close to the bottom.
Make sure you put the handles on the correct side (away from the
hinges) of the doors, it's *very* easy to do it wrong if you go into
'automatic' drilling holes. I only made one hole in the wrong place
but that's one too many really.
I don't think a template is really necessary.
I'd expect knobs to be mounted off centre in much the same way as
handles, knobs half way up our doors really wouldn't be in the most
convenient place, especially for the wall mounted cupboards.
What the other guy said
Drawer handles in the middle
Floor unit handles near the top, wall unit handles near the bottom. Suggest
you go to MFI to see what position they use.
I made a simple rectangular cardboard template which when placed in the
corner of the door, had two marks on the edge where I wanted to drill the
!--------- - corner of cupboard door here. Dashes mark the spot.

Thanks for your suggestions and tips, went to B and Q this evening and
knobs on doors below work tops are indeed at the top third of the door
and knobs on doors above worktops are nearer the bottom!
