Either Blum is the only company out there doing innovative hardware or they are the only company out there that is really effective at marketing the stuff.
One thing I like about them is the very clear specifications they provide in their literature. One thing I don’t like is the expensive jigs and hardware.
It’s been said on here that Blum has very high expectations of their suppliers and the quality is unmatched. Are there companies out there doing similar innovations (drawer systems, vertical lift hinges, corner drawers, etc) but aren’t as well known or perhaps are good enough to compete with Blum’s apparent quality?
To give you some idea of where I’m coming from: I’ve never made cabinets before but I’ve built a prototype that I’m happy with. I’m wondering if I’m foolish for wanting to spend so much on fancy hardware.
