I have priced out the following door hardware
5 passage knob sets
3 privacy knob sets
2 (2.5 x 2) polished chrome cabinet hinges
16 (3.5 x 3.5) solid brass door hinges
40 cabinet knob pulls
All is made by Baldwin and expect for the cabinet hinges they are all finished in their oil rubbed bronze.
The total delivered price is $1100. The major costs are hinges at about $24 a piece and door knobs at about $60 a piece.
I do not have much experience with door hardware. I would like a quality product…this would include a durable finish and a smooth/solid feel. Are there other brands on the market that offer similar quality to Baldwin at a more competitive price? If so, what do you recommend?
I am leary of the kwikset/schlage models found in the box stores. They feel cheap but would cost me 1/3 of the price for Baldwin. Is there an intermediate brand between those mentioned?
Thanks in advance for all of your help
