Backplates are such a useful piece of hardware for your cabinets and drawers. For instance; if you are switching out knobs for pulls, you will have an unsightly hole where the drawer knob was screwed in. By placing a backplate behind your new pull, it not only masks the unwanted hole, but provides a clean, finished look to your drawer pull. Just make sure you choose drawer pulls and backplates with the same hole spacing.
You don’t need an unwanted hole to use a backplate. Think of it as the beautiful decorative charger you would see under a dinner plate at an upscale restaurant. It is there to show off what is on top of it; your decorative drawer pull.
When you combine a backplate with a drawer pull, you have so many more options to give your project the character you want. Remember, this is the icing on the cake of your project. Keep it understated, or, try something more unique by combining contemporary style with something more ornate. Try a brushed nickel backplate with a black drawer pull to make it eye popping!
