Kitchen cabinet handle upgrade
 
4 Attachment(s)
Should we upgrade our current antique brass cabinet handles to stainless steel? Antique brass is mainly what we have around our home for all the door handles, etc....So we are torn between the 2.

Simple enough to see what you like----replace a few---and see if you like the look.

I don't think having brass door knobs will bother the eyes if you have a different look on the cabinets--

In your opinion what would you do. I'm leaning towards silver handles.

We were also thinking of adding a backsplash on the kitchen wall.

I'd go with the silver handles ,if it were my house.---

And the tile back splash----I'm a tile guy--so yes---bring home a sample and pin it up for a few days--

Whatever looks good to you (or should I say to your wife) is the way to go.
Make sure to measure the distance between the screws before buying any thing so your not stuck trying to fill and drill new holes.

I noticed they make backsplash that "sticks" to the wall....they actually look really good.

Brushed nickel sounds about right.

With stainless appliances, sink and faucet, I would prefer SS or brushed nickel.

We have a white kitchen sink now. I would ultimately like to get a stainless steel sink, but there's so many choices. Not sure where to start.

I haven't had the nerve to try those---I do wonder what the water from the wetsaw would do to the stick-um---

That would be great for back splashes if it worked---
