The new cabinet hardware was installed recently. Yay, no more grabbing a piece of blue painters tape to open a cabinet!
These are the Voss pulls in brushed nickel from Top Knobs. I chose to use pulls on all the drawers and solid doors. I chose knobs for the glass cabinets, the corner lazy-susan and the cabinets under the sink.
We still need to add a drawer pull to the empty drawer on the right. I debated on putting two but settled on one. That will probably get done today.
I love the way the brushed nickel looks with the stainless steel and the granite.
And the island, although I like the brushed nickel against the white better.
Overall, everything worked out except for one little dilemma…
See these three cabinets above? At the moment, the center door without the hardware opens from the corner out towards the right. Originally, it was designed to open in the opposite direction toward the left but it arrived wrong.
It’s no problem for my contractor to switch the hinges so it opens to the left but I can’t decide whether I should do it or not. If it opens to the left, we will have to add a door stopper to the hinge so the door doesn’t smash into the cabinet on the left. Plus the door will not be able quite as wide as it does now. The way the door hangs now, it could potentially hit the door on the right but only if both of them were open at the same time. Not very likely that would happen.
So basically, I have to decide between which would look better…Does it make more sense having the door handle on the left (leaving the door to open to the right) or having the door handle on the right (switching the door so it opens left)?
Here is another shot so you can see the rest of the upper cabinets in that area.
So what do you think?
Door handle on the left
or door handle on the right?
As always, I value your opinions!
You can guess that my brain is fried by now…
