Sadie's Kitchen remodel is finished
Sadie's kitchen is FINISHED!!!!! Can you even believe it? This kitchen renovation has been quite the saga. To say we are elated in a big fat understatement.
The finishing touch- hardware
The last and final touch in this room was the hardware. I chose the most beautiful brass hardware in all the land.
why is it so hard to choose finishes?
Let's talk about something bloggers don't talk about that often. It is HARD to pick a perfect finish. I believe that 99% of picking the perfect finish is based on what your preference is. For instance, I could easily have gone with black hardware, but as you can see in my photos, I went with brass.
Why did I go with brass?
Why? I think it's unexpected. This monochromatic kitchen needed a little something different and my brass finishes did just that.
How to choose the right finish for you
If you are stumped on what finish to go with for your own kitchen, take a look at your Pinterest boards. For me, brass after brass after brass was pinned and repinned. That's a pretty good indication that I am more drawn to brass. No brainer for me.
Why did I go with this particular style?
I could have gone with numerous styles of knobs and pulls, but I settled on this particular hardware. I felt that these particular pulls match my kitchen style well. I didn't want to go too modern as my home is SO old. With that being said, these pulls are classic and would fit in a variety of homes!
Favorite thing about my knobs
My favorite thing about these knobs and the thing that really drew me to them, the size. The ball on these things is 1.5" big! There is a bit of "drama" to them and I LOVE IT!!!!
You know your hardware is quality when...
I was out of town when the hardware came and the first thing David said to me was "Wow, these knobs are heavy duty". I didn't know what he meant until I held them for myself. This hardware is extremely well made and the highest quality. Installing them is like lifting weights because they are so heavy. You can rest easy using Baldwin Hardware in your home knowing you've chosen a high-quality product to finish off your project.
Installation is very easy and straightforward. We used the Kreg Cabinet Hardware Jig to perfectly place and predrill our holes for the knobs and pulls. You can find this product at your local Home Depot or shop online.
Now on to the doorknobs. I'll try to come up with adequate words to describe how beautiful the knobs and roses (back piece on a doorknob) are. STUNNING!!!! I also went with a brass finish for my doorknobs. They are slightly different though....the doorknobs are called Unlacquered Brass and they will AGE WITH TIME!!! If I could, I'd have a least 3 heart eyes right here!!!! The most beautiful patina will grace these knobs in due time and I. Can't. Wait.
completely customize your Baldwin doorknobs
It's worth mentioning that you can customize your Baldwin doorknobs. Yep, you heard that right. Choose from a variety of Roses (again, the back piece on your doorknob) knobs, and finishes. There's a great tool here that you can design your knobs so you know exactly what you are ordering.
I am very pleased with how this kitchen turned out. The hardware was a fun little treat and really the icing on the cake. For your convenience, I've linked directly to my particular products throughout the post and below. If you have any questions, please comment below or send us an email!
Keep in mind that these doorknobs are ordered in two separate pieces- the knob and the rose.
