Did they tell you they'd do the black buttons? When I asked about that I was told they only have the ones that match the cabinets and that I would have to switch them out myself. I'm getting a black countertop with the black trim, so I thought the black buttons would blend in nicely.

Now if they would also install supplied black hinges and cabinet pulls, that would be great. But was told I'd have to do that myself.

Okay, new style?!??!?! What gives on that?

If someone wants a different color for buttons, there are lots more of them than just at the kitchen. I see 15 around the head of the bed and there are probably more there and others elsewhere. You can put new ones on, however, very easily yourself and they hardly cost.

Guess we need definitive button counts for each model. You can even use several colors or change the colors once in a while.

Maybe I'll have to reconsider, definitely do not want black outside of the kitchen, maybe I'll go back to brown, I know what that looks like...

By the bed?!??! I hadn't noticed those before. Will have to look for them on the display 21' when it's available.

Anyway, I have a site bookmarked for those screw cover buttons. Wads of different colors, so yeah, you could switch them out whenever you wanted. Red/white/blue for 4th of July travels for those in the USA. Red/green for Xmas. Green for St Patricks. Okay, I'll stop, you get the idea. But seriously, that would be a fun idea!

(And don't think I haven't been looking at the purple ones since my fabric is purple! Wish they did samples - gotta ask 'em about that.)

Here's the link for those wondering:

12/12 Snap-Caps - for #10, #12 & 1/4" screws | Pro-Dec

I don't remember which size works though. I figured I'd find out when it was time to order and I knew how many I needed.
