We decided on a certain pattern and color, but found out that it would require a special order. That’s not a big deal, but there were a few things to consider. First off, and this speaks volumes to me, but getting special order door knobs meant more cost. For all four knobs and deadbolts, about $100 extra, not including the freight charge they stick you with. Plus, special orders are final, no returns. Like we experienced with windows, if you can choose among their stock items, you save money and have more flexibility.
The reality is, the difference between what we chose and what they had was completely negligible. More importantly, they had the color we wanted in stock, so it was a no-brainer. That, and the fact that they’re just door knobs, as long as they look decent and work.
With this in mind, I think we’re a step closer, if not on the verge of getting the hardware. This translates into one step closer to inner-door knob peace, and you can’t take that for granted. At least I can’t.
Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to RLGarlick for the pic.
