I love the look of this mesh for a cabinet door front. Does anyone know where to find this exact mesh? And is the mesh crazy expensive?
I have no idea if it would even work with my budget but it's so pretty!
I have seen similar expanded metal at Ace hardware in my home town. I also can order it from Wurth Baer Supply on line or pick it up in 1 hour. They have several locations or can be ordered on line. I've included their web site below. www.new-look-kitchen.com
Is it this exact mesh with the little rosettes and tiny nailheads in satin chrome? How much does something like this cost?
Rockler carries something like this without the rosettes. It is a custom order and runs about $28 a square foot for the heavier woven mesh in the front and not the screening. The multi layered mesh with the rosettes is going to be a high ticket item.

I think mamadadapaige used a similar treatment in her lovely new kitchen.
I wanted a simple mesh insert on two vegetable drawers. What I found was that if it isn't one of the cabinet maker's standard items, the cost is astronomical. My cabinet maker sent me to www.outwater.com. I was unable to find anything for less than several hundred dollars for a few square feet of basic mesh. I ended up giving up on the idea.

I did a down-n-dirty calculation per sq ft of the Regency, and it worked out about $70/sq ft.
I was going to put the picture of mine in but francoise did for me - thanks!
I got them from Armac Martin UK. I think the price palimpsest said is about what I paid - maybe a little less, can't find the invoice. fyi: Dealing with them over the phone was easier than by email.
Check out Van Dyke Restorer's.
They sell the stuff, too, I believe. All kinds of inserts.
The Regency UK folk are a bespoke maker; They can probably make anything you can imagine, but if you have to ask, you can't afford it. I stumbled on their site a year ago looking for a long-discontinued woven metal grille style. Drool!
There are fabricators in the far east who will also build to your design but the minimum order is 1000 square meters!
It is a standard from Quality Custom Cabinetry in nickel. Was just considering it for part of a display but don't remember the price, but QCCI is a hi end cabinet. Checked a few likely sources but didn't unearth anything new.
Thank you so much for all the info. It may be too expensive, I'll have to check it out. It's such a pretty look!
@mamadadapaige your kitchen is just stunning!! Thank you so much for sharing photos of it. I'm soooo loving the gorgeous diamond grille!! What an amazing makeover of your space! Did you hire a designer or plan it all on your own?
gidgetgirly, thanks so much. I planned it myself but I am a kitchen designer and took a very long time to plan it. came up with a million iterations for the space which had a lot of difficult problems to overcome.
I found my invoice, I paid $258 for the pair of grilles. The cabinet company ordered them for me so that they would be the correct size and so the doors accepting them could be modified with a wooden band and screws to keep them in place.
Thanks mamadadapaige, $258 really isn't as bad as I thought it would be, and definitely worth it. I thought it would've been closer to $700-$1000.
They certainly look very expensive! I'm really in love with that look. And your kitchen :) thanks again!
