Having had our bespoke cabinets in the recesses on either side of the fireplace installed over a year ago, we thought that it was probably about time to choose some cupboard door knobs.
We’d thought about having a hidden push-pull mechanism, but eventually decided that the cupboards needed some visible knobs to finish them off. They just seem a bit bare without. So, after cleaning the dirty fingerprints of our cupboard doors for the hundredth time, I decided to order four cupboard knobs. The choice of door knobs was one thing that was straight forward because we had already decided that we would use knobs that were the same design as our actual door knobs throughout the house. However, as we were being indecisive (as always), we weren’t sure about which size knob to choose. To help things along, I cut out some circles in the different available cupboard knob sizes. We quickly discounted the huge 38mm knob and after sleeping on it for a few nights (I told you we were indecisive) we decided on the 30mm cupboard knob.
And here they are.
Attaching them was much easier and quicker than everything else. I measured and marked the centre of the panelled area of the door with a pencil, carefully drilled a hole with a 5mm drill and attached the knob.
About half an hour later we finally had cupboard doors that we could actually open! I can’t believe that it took us a year to get round to doing this, especially as it really finishes the cupboards off!
What do you think? Did we choose the right size?
