When purchasing glass knobs for your home, be sure to purchase a few extras. Glass can crack and chip and though rare, you can′t really repair the glass. While experts do recommend repairing antique glass using epoxies, you will get a far better result if you simply replace a broken, chipped or cracked knob with a new one. Having a few extras makes this easy and will keep your cabinets looking beautiful for years to come.
As always, you may want to start looking for glass knobs for your cabinet online where there is superior selection. Local home improvement and interior design stores will have a smaller selection, which may also be limited in terms of the designs as they are meant to appeal to a mass market. Shopping online lets you locate those rare jewels that will make your cabinets unique.
Today, antique glass knobs are very expensive to acquire. They are highly prized by homeowners and collectors, particularly those owners who have a period house and are wanting to restore it back to its original condition. That doesn′t mean that glass cabinet knobs are out of the reach of homeowners today. While original knobs made of crystal can run upwards of $100, newly manufactured knobs are competitively priced with other knobs, anywhere from $2.50 and up, depending on the style, color and complexity of the design. Glass cabinet knobs come in all colors, shapes and sizes these days. While clear glass is always popular, you can get lovely knobs in cobalt blue, amber, red, purple, green - the list goes on. The same is true for shape. Round is a perennial favorite but you can also get hexagonal, fluted, oval and even square. And if you have a mix of knobs and pulls, you can often find matching pulls in glass as well.
Choosing Cabinet Pulls There aren′t any hard and fast rules actually when it comes to getting cabinet pulls as you are generally free to pick out whatever you feel like using. There are quite a number of pulls out there anyway so you virtually cannot run out of options to consider. When it comes to glass pulls though, go for those that are made with the hardest glass you can find to ensure that your cabinet hardware will last you a long time. Pulls, after all, get the full brunt of the force it takes to open a cabinet door so you will want something that will last for as long as you have a cabinet door to open. Other than that, feel free to choose a glass cabinet pull in the color or design that works best with your cabinet. Because pulls can be used to mildly accessorize a room, do consider getting a pull that works very well with the rest of your interiors.
