CHAMPAGNE BRASS REVIEW! Side-by-side of AB vs. HD brand!
Reviewed in the United States on June 22, 2020
***this is an honest review! I was not compensated for my review and I paid full price for my product!***
Ok...I am impressed. I am remodeling my kitchen and had been quite indecisive about hardware. I went to the big orange HD store and bought one of their 7” euro handle in champagne brass which retails for 9.99. I have 37 cabinets and 18 drawers between my kitchen and the adjoining laundry. This made me stressed out so I went in search of a better deal on Amazon and was hopeful when I saw these at less than 2.00 each. I took the plunge. Well, they arrived today and although we are not ready to install them yet, I eagerly opened the package to see if they would meet my expectations. Here is my analysis because when I shop I really appreciate reviews who take the time to lay bare the facts!
1.) Most importantly: color. You can barely tell the difference between the two! I can say the Amazon Basics is MAYBE a half-shade lighter. I took a picture out in natural light to show the difference. Color is not 14kg yellow which my husband was adamant about. It is a very classy, warm brass!
2.) Texture and weight: both are very smooth and feel to be of good weight for a quality handle. Just to give you an idea (if weightiness matters), I put both on my scale and the weight is nearly identical!
3.) Size/shape: Circumference of handle is the same (1/2”) as well as leg length. The HD holes are a HAIR wider. Other than that I see no difference!
I will update my review in the coming weeks about how the install goes. My husband will be doing that so I will be sure to get his honest feedback to add.
Update: this hardware installed with no issues and each handle was perfect! I highly recommend this choice! 👏🏻
I hope my review has helped you! 👍🏻
