RE: What Size Sconces On Each Side Of Front Door? (Follow-Up #11)

posted by: ponydoc on 09.10.2008 at 07:29 pm in Building a Home Forum

Just so happens I just posted a pic of our front door.. these are the sconces. Can't remember what they measured but I can measure them if you like. I think they were around 275 each. I thought they would look too big but they look just right IMHO.

RE: Size of outside lights next to front door (Follow-Up #7)

posted by: sidney4 on 12.15.2011 at 07:26 am in Home Decorating & Design Forum

My very first post to GW was asking this same question over on the home builders forum . I had ordered lights to flank both the front door of my covered porch and garage doors. When I saw them in person they seemed huge. I received a lot of reassurances from some of the experts on that site and ended up using them. I'm glad I erred on the side of big. One poster told me most people make the mistake of hanging lights that are too small. I've linked to that post.

Here are the lights in question after they were hung

I used the same sized lights on the garage doors

Seafoam Green granite is here! Pics!

posted by: dorothyct on 02.12.2008 at 06:50 pm in Kitchens Forum

Today they brought all the granite. We used up almost 2 commplete slabs - every square inch for this kitchen. The backsplashes for the cooktop and sink were the extras that I just *had* to have! :)

In the pics the granite is just sort of laying in place so all the reveals, etc. are not right but you can get the effect for now!!

Tomorrow plumber comes to do sink, dishwasher and toekick heater and the granite guys come to do seams and backsplashes.

Hope I can make these pics work:

RE: I did a search and still need answers re pulls on drawers! (Follow-Up #12)

I ordered them from a site called Vandarn they are a division of Goleco decor from NY. I have never ordered from them or even heard of them, so I might be taking a chance. I will post back after I get them.

Thank you so much for all the advise. I went over to the house this morning and I taped two pulls (different style but same size from some of the samples I got on line) and it was on the 25" drawers that I just couldn't make up my mind. It is all about the looks. I just finished ordering my pulls and knobs. There was only 4 drawers in question so I ordered the 4 extra. I really think I got a great deal. Emtek Providence series knobs (all solid brass) in polished chrome for bath and satin nickel for kitchen, and the cup pulls in the same series #86123- in the chrome and satin nickel. With two wardrobe knobs for the his & her doors hiding my laundry. That is 87 knobs and pulls for $420.82 inc. free shipping. I am so pleased. These pulls and knobs sell for almost double that at the cabinet stores and on most of the internet sites.

Please help me pick hardware

posted by: domesticah on 05.10.2011 at 10:34 pm in Kitchens Forum

Hi all, Another hardware post -- geez I am spinning my wheels. I would greatly appreciate some thoughts on some hardware...They are going on creamy white painted cabs, bianco romano perimeter and walnut top island. I am doing Horton polished nickel hinges and knobs on the doors (with a few latches) but need to decide on the drawers. First I was going to do 6" Gilmore pulls, then saw the pottery barn and thought I was in love -- but just got it in the mail and it is more like, like (too small and the finsh is not as nice as I thought). Also really like duluth and the Aubry pulls. I am hoping that the cup pulls are not going to scream circa 2005-2010 in five years : ). Your thoughts are appreciated.

RE: Best source for bin pulls? (Follow-Up #3)

posted by: cloud_swift on 08.04.2011 at 08:03 pm in Kitchens Forum

I dislike the bin pulls made out of formed sheet metal because of the uncomfortably thin edge - I only wanted cast ones. I also prefer the bin pulls where the screws come in from the back so you don't see them, not the pulls where the screws go in from the front.

Amerock has some nice bin pulls - sturdy, nice weight, nice comfortable edges. We used those on some drawers in a printer stand my DH made and considered them for our kitchen. The price is pretty reasonable.

Then I found the Schaub pulls. We liked the wider width available in them. They are listed as 3" because the holes are on a 3" spacing, but the pull is about 5" wide. I've linked to the page with the Bronze finishes, but they have a wide variety of finishes available. We got the ORB finish.

RE: Show me your cabinet knobs and pulls!! (Follow-Up #25)

posted by: tuffys1 on 10.26.2012 at 08:58 pm in Kitchens Forum

No pictures right now, but when we were chosing knobs and pulls for our new Arts and Craft inspired cabinetry we were wondering about the appropriate selection of hardware and the mixing of knobs, pulls, and clamshells (cup pulls) (at least that's how we referred to the 3 types.)

We ran across a great site (creative juice - what were they thinking? - Kitchen Cabinet Hardware) that provided some great advice, good pictures and a little humor:

http://studiobcreativejuice.blogspot.com/2011/06/what-were-they-thinking-thursday_16.html

If you're struggling with hardware choices like we were (we started in an online site that offered 13,000 knob choices) this site might give you some ideas.

(We ended up mixing all three types - a little unorthodox but we think the effect is great. We had the confidence to try it because of some examples from the creative juice blog.)

RE: Cup Pulls with or without exposed screws.. pros and cons?? (Follow-Up #5)

posted by: jsweenc on 03.18.2010 at 08:43 am in Kitchens Forum

ajard,

Amerock has one, the Pull Essential'Z BP9365-G10. It is near the end of the 45 cup pulls on the Amerock site. I also considered BP1592-G10. It's different and interesting but not screamingly so. See the link below.

Sherwhy, you said not exposed but the Highland has exposed, unless I looked at the wrong thing. I love the look of those though, and considered those as well. It looks like you like the squared look better if the Gilmore and Highland are your top two, but FYI this is what we ended up with:

Amerock BP4235-G9
Photobucket
I love them and functionally they are not insubstantial at all. They don't look that way either. I am not using my cab;nets yet because we don't have counters, but I have pulled the drawers open repeatedly and the pulls are great.

Amerock BP76270-G9 is the knob we used for cab;net doors.
Photobucket

BP1593-G10 I had to use this finger pull somewhere, so I have two on each of my second island's drawers where we will keep good china and silver.
Photobucket

BP874-G9 This is the pull that was supposed to go on the tall pantry but for whatever reason the cab;net maker got BP55346-G10 instead. I didn't even notice it until just now, so I guess I like it just as much!
