In the beginning stages of the designing our master bathroom (all the way back in June!), I shared an inspiration photo of a bathroom with a glass shower door, paired with brass hinges and a brass knob *gasp.* Not a handle or pull–a knob on the glass shower door. I was so inspired and I knew it was something I wanted for our bathroom.
Back in November, I consulted our custom glass company that was going to do our shower door, and I brought up that I really wanted a brass knob on the door. He said it was doable but all of the options he showed me felt too small. Less than 2 inches was just not going to bring the vision I had in my mind to life. I was feeling a little defeated (and a little annoying–do you ever feel annoying when someone is trying to help you but it’s just not what you had in mind?) Then I asked him. “What if we used, like,… a dummy doorknob? Would it be possible to fabricate that with the glass?”
“I don’t see why not.” I’m sorry–WHAT! First of all, that’s a phrase we love hearing and secondly, what a simple solution! So–I’m here to announce to all of you–you can have a dummy doorknob fabricated on a glass shower door! The possibilities!
I found the perfect dummy knob (dummy knobs don’t turn or lockH) on Rejuvenation. *purchased 2 instantly.* Once they came in, our fabricator matched the finish with hinges we chose from his selection and once the door was delivered and installed, it was as if I was seeing a vision become a reality. There’s just not a better feeling when designing anything custom for your home.
Every detail that comes together in our bathroom brings us closer and closer to the grand finale, and gives me further clarity on the other finishes we’ve been a bit stumped on. This knob was definitely a missing piece.
