First of all, I was never opposed to the previous cabinet knobs here above my Fridge. I simply just could not reach them!
It was not until I was out browsing merchandise, that the lightbulb struck and I came across these 50s vintage doorknobs. If only I had that few extra centimeters, I wouldn't need the step stool, nor stand on my tippy toes with an extra inch that they provided me. For the extra few dollars, I am no longer making the effort to grab that stool or stretch the extra mile to reach. Besides all that, I have a crystal clear vision and a great looking alternative that fits nicely.
