“Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.” -Mary Lou Cook
So many of our customers are looking for ways to improve their homes and save money at the same time. To make the investment in your kitchen cost-effective, you can replace the hardware that’s currently on your cabinets at a fraction of the price it costs to rip apart your entire kitchen and replace all of those doors, frames, and shelves. Your kitchen can look new and intriguing even if you don’t have the time or the funds to completely remodel that entire room. Here are five tips to help make your decision a little easier:
High quality hardware has a reputation for fine workmanship and how well it maintains a finish. These materials, used in making many of our products, have a natural finish that often forms its own natural protective coating that prevents tarnish, oxidation and corrosion and is up to 3 times as durable as plated economy hardware. High quality hardware is strong and flexible, very versatile, has a significantly longer lifespan than products made of economy materials and has lower maintenance costs. Often double the weight of comparably sized economy hardware, high quality hardware is solid, quite dense, and sturdy. The average retail sales price premium for all of these advantages averages only 20%.

The Ice Box Cupboard Latch, or IBCL, is a recent addition to our product line, and is offered in seven vibrant finishes. These pieces are relatively unique throughout the kitchen and bath industry, and are often hard to find or require a long lead time. Cliffside, however, has these items in stock and ready to ship as part of our signature hardware line. The available finishes currently include silver satin, polished nickel, old antique, polished chrome, polished brass, flat black, and old copper, with three new finishes to come with our new product lines arriving in early 2009.
