Still brainstorming on how to do a cost-effective paint/hardware update for my kitchen cabinets, I thought I'd try to choose a knob that is the same finish as my hinges, which are exposed. This seems better than hunting down new hinges in this 3/4" inset that is no longer made, and I'm not keen on the idea of spraypainting the hinges either.
After checking out what I thought was all knobs displayed at both Home Depot and Rona, I stumbled across a knobs display in the kitchen display area of Home Depot today. To my delight I found one knob with a finish that matches my hinge, still in my purse, exactly. Howeever, I was shocked when the HD rep told me the price: $30 per knob. With a look of disbelief on my face, he voluntarily checked again, and confirmed the price, saying that was actually pretty good since the MSRP or whatever is listed at around $57, and it is a "SPECIAL ORDER" item. The manufacturer, by the way, is Kraftmaid, and the finish is called aged bronze. It looks heaps nicer in person, but the price!
Wow. Am I the only one that thinks this is kind of a lot for a knob like this?
