Good places to buy hardware and fixtures

Carly GrantNovember 10, 2013
We are new to home buying and need to pretty much replace all the hardware (doorknobs, kitchen cabinet handles etc) and light fixtures. We want something nice but don't want to spend a fortune. Where should we look? And what type of handyman should we hire to install everything??

I am looking also for kitchen handles, something contemporary ... I checked and ... there are many options... but you have to buy through a dealer or company... I need more alternatives as I have not found what I am looking for.. I want something linear, long, in chrome finish, but not too expensive... Richelieu has some but they are $$$ and they come only in 2 sizes.... any tips?

How about They have a ton of selection and many price ranges.

You can sometimes get good quantity deals on eBay. Replaced all the 80's brass door knobs and hinges at a fairly reasonable price. Easy to do yourself (as long as hinges are same size and shape...but found that to be fairly standard). Also refinished the doors, as they were horrible yellow (to go with the brass)

Ask your real estate agent for recommendations for a handyman. You may want a licensed electrician to change out the light fixtures.
