So you all helped me choose our kitchen worktop recently...thank you! Now onto handles.

We are going for a grey shaker style kitchen with wood effect laminate. Can't decide between an iron antique cup handle or a rustic antique style brushed silver one! Some pics attached.
Hard to see but the second one has a purposely worn/antique finish. We are having quite light worktops, white ceramic sink and these are the units in pics - light grey.

I much prefer the cup handles. I've always liked them.
The other ones are too modern for me.
Nice kitchen btw smile

The cup handles look much more classic and less likely to date imo.

Haha, we are def going with the cup handles, but against grey with the worktop we've chosen, unsure whethwr to go
For dark antique iron/pewter - images on left or aged antique silver - image on right? Hard to see detail but can if u zoom in! :-)

With your benchtop and the grey cabinets, I prefer the lighter silver handles on the right. smile

Lighter ones definitely.

That's what I originally thought but when I google images of grey kitchens, the darker handles are quite striking. Now I'm not sure!

I like the ones in the first picture x

I like the dark ones
I think they work better with the worktop and will look more striking as you have said
I also think they look more expensive as well as edgier

So nobody is loving my sparkle handles. Maybe DH is right after all. I really wanted a bit of bling

Dark cup handles.

The lighter ones. They look easier to blend other appliances and lighting with. I have chrome cup handles and love them.

What about getting some where the screws are hidden inside? I prefer the lighter Ines. They will lift the kitchen and match other appliances (kettle, toaster etc) better too.

Dark cup handles.
I have cup handles on cream shaker units - they've been there 14 years, and still look good. Not dated and I'd choose them again.
