Arrgh…so much to do and so little time. Looks like drywall is going up this week in our Malibu home renovation project. As you may know, my guy and I are redoing a house we found over a year ago in Malibu. Each week, to distract us from delays we think, the contractor gives us an assignment of something to get for the 4 bedroom 3.5 bath home overlooking the Pacific Ocean. We rush around and get what he has asked for and make decisions and then the contractor doesn’t really use it. A few weeks ago the assignment was door hardware for interior doors. Then our hunt began for just the right modern door levers.
Well we now have a dilemma…a paradox of choice. All of the choices have us frozen…unable to make a decision.
We have been to door showroom after door showroom…I have catalogs on my kitchen counter…I spent hours on the phone with one dealer building an interior door set that was $1550…we have deliberated ad nauseum and still do not have a decision. Argghhhhh….help.
So many minute details. Our contractor thinks we should do oil rubbed bronze for all hardware…TE and I disagree…we want to do a brushed nickel finish. Then we found some high end luxury handles and levers that we are considering for the main space.
On Friday morning, when TE is back from London, we will go to our plumbing and fixtures showroom very early and see what he has.
We have 14 interior doors, several closet doors, 5 exterior doors, 1 barn door, and 4 sliding glass doors to trick out…this does not include window turns either. Hmmm…
Well in all of this searching around…I came up with a blog post on modern door levers. Here are a few that I found that I really like. Also discovered some amazing door hardware companies that make levers with leather, wood inlay, pounded metal, and details I didn’t know exist.
If you want to dress up a space or make it look a little more modern…change out a traditional knob for one of these lever beauties!
I hope this list helps you!
