my DIY high
There's nothing quite like stepping back and saying, "Yes, I made that."
Knobs are sometimes overlooked, but when they aren't there--you miss them! The cabinets look slightly unfinished and nothing is super easy to open. Knobs and handles can be expensive. But not if you go to my favorite shopping place. That's right, Amazon. I went with a chrome/stainless steel look. I chose knobs for cabinets, and pulls for the drawers.
That long bar? I use it as a kitchen towel holder under my sink.
Now, I have my knobs and pulls in hand. I realized...I have no idea what a normal height or setting is for a knob on a cabinet. Then I started looking everywhere I went. They all looked weird. Every last one of them. It was like when you say a word over and over and that word starts to sound weird. That's how I felt about the knobs I noticed.
After reading what seemed like every article on pinterest about proper cabinet knob placement, the difference between knobs and pulls, modern measurements and traditional...I found this bad boy and said to heck with it. They're all in the same place, and they look great. Word of advice: it just really doesn't matter that much. Go with your personal preference.
