Would you "buy ahead" for remodel in 2 yrs?
When we redid the upstairs I went with 4 panel doors with shaker sticking (panel edges aren't trimmed with any molding, the edges are square and in a 2 over 2 configuration).
I wanted simple hardware so I chose Emtek Providence with a rectangular rosette in black (it seems weird to call it a rosette if it isn't round).
Emtek isn't cheap, but I couldn't find much available in solid black and they felt so good. In 2 years we plan to do the first floor and replace the hollow core doors and brass bell shaped door knobs. I'll need 7 interior and 4 exterior sets.
An online store has a sale on Emtek and I am tempted to buy them now, since their prices are $20 less for the interior sets ($60-ish instead of $80-ish per knob).
Should I? Or is it too early to buy ahead for a renovation so far ahead? I could theoretically use the exterior sets today ... Though we will replace 3 of the 4 exterior doors when we do that project.
