The Importance of Door Hardware
Simply put, the first thing you touch when entering any space is the door handle. Depending on its shape, color and feel, it provides your first impression of that particular place. It is the key element that gives any interior design space its own unique vibe. Not to mention it can be customized to represent your specific taste.
The selection process of all door hardware is always left until the project is almost done; it is considered as the finishing touch. However, in most cases, choosing the hardware from the beginning of the design stage can save lots of time, money and effort.
Let’s say ‘spaces with contemporary design’ – hardware should have more of a straight, clean line effect; with a satin or matt finish and a square handle rose.
Minimalist design suggests using handles and knobs without a rose along with concealed hinges and door stoppers.
For a classic, traditional design, the focus is on the details; small curves with gold and antique finishes and handles with a plate.
The industrial look can lead to using rough design with dark and matt finish. On the other hand, the farm house look can even include patina in the hardware matt finish.
Eventually, it is all about choosing the right piece for the right space… Prioritize your door hardware choices. Don’t leave it until the last minute. You won’t regret it.
