It seems Nickel is the new favorite color for kitchen hardware, but It's not what I like. After looking in all the hardware and big box store in my area, I decided to try on-line. Best move EVER. These burnished brass knobs are exactly what I wanted for my new island. They look wonderful with the deep oak cabinets that will be installed as well as with the golden oak of the existing cabinets. The price was so good, I didn't have to settle for something I didn't want and could afford to redo knobs in the whole kitchen. Beautiful!!!
