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.
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.
There is really no secret or hard and fast rule for choosing glass cabinet knobs. The bottom line is that you can′t make a wrong choice when it comes to kitchen cabinet knobs. Once you find a knob design that appeals to you, then that is the right choice. In fact the trend of mixing and matching today could be applied to knobs as well. For instance you could choose to use a combination of glass cabinet knobs and pulls, one for kitchen cabinet doors and the other for the drawers.
