Pulls have me tied in knots
I am just beyond frustrated. Worse than my dishwasher paralysis and angst over countertop delays. Help me or push me over the cliff.
We are waiting for counters to come in. Couple more days now. So we really want to put hardware on our cabinets and start loading them up and getting our lives back to normal. Since DW and I can't make a decision, we called in our interior designer to be our guide.
Good advice last night, and then she met me with for 2-3 hours today at various shops. She is advising to use long pulls in a sleek design. 12" or more as possible. Amerock Kane and Rochdale are two styles she thinks we should follow. Not all are 12", some will have to be 8". So it figures that the price break is below 8". And the price break is HUGE. Like a tenth!
No one has this type of thing in stock in Orlando. We have to order everything, which will not happen today, not happen over the weekend, at best it will be Monday. Before tax, we will have tipped over $2,000 in hardware! When it is said and done, our Advantium oven will have been about the same.
DW Likes the long pulls being vertical and horizontal. Yuck! Why can't we use some knobs when a large pull won't fit or orient properly? Will 6" pulls really make us look like we are cheaping out? Can't I just drill a hole and tie a knot in some rope and use that? Seriously, for 15 cabinets, do I have to spend that kind of money? Do all you GWers just tell your significant others to shut up and write the check? I have spent a large amount so far, and don't think I have cheaped out on our kitchen, but OMG, do I really have to go this route for a nice kitchen?
Help me, please. So many of you calmed me down when I freaked over my counters being delayed. Help me now, brothers and sisters.... Or someone is going under a bus tonight.
