In the meantime, I’ve been trying to find the appropriate hardware for the cabinets. I love Restoration Hardware, of course. Among many great options, my favorite has to be the Aubrey Pull:
The style is very similar to a window sash lift and I love its clean, cottage feel. Casual but not chintzy.
Pottery Barn Kids uses a similar pull on several of their bedroom collections, although in a brushed nickle finish.
But RH wants $10 and up for each pull. I’ve looked for Aubrey Pull knock-offs, for actual window sash lifts (which they seem only to sell in the United Kingdom), for anything remotely similar — but the catch is always the money, isn’t it? Everything I found made the RH pulls look like a bargain.
Lee Valley does not have a single chrome pull similar to the Aubrey. They have four.
I also found these charming latches, which I’m considering using in lieu of cabinet knobs:
If the latches don’t work, I can always go the route of safety:
And of course, hinges to boot.
As if I wasn’t in enough trouble, I found plenty to rival the above for my loyalty.
Anyway, I’ve ordered a sampling of all the hardware front runners and I’m anxiously awaiting their arrival so I’ll be able to stress about yet another remodeling decision for untold weeks.
