If you’re less than satisfied with a room in your home, whether it’s the kitchen or the bathroom, new hardware is the perfect solution for a quick and easy update to your space. Although these tiny accessories may seem small and less significant than a bucket of paint or a new piece of furniture, they’re just enough to make your dated doors, windows, and towel hooks appear like part of a new room again. Are you ready for an update? Consider these ideas for a simple switch.
Trendy or Classic? You Decide
How would you describe the theme of your home decor? Is it simple with rustic touches or modern with unexpected flair? The accessories in your home should reflect the existing look and feel of your home. Trendy looks and experimental hardware styles are fun and exciting for a new homeowner, especially if you are thinking of making other changes to your interior design. If you plan on selling in the near future, keep the look of your hardware accessories classic and consistent throughout your home to make the process easier.
Phase in the New
Your next moves with hardware updates should be an accent to the existing fixtures in your home. However if you’re still on the fence about other updates such as new light fixtures or faucets, experimenting with your hardware is a great way to give your new preferences a test run. Test out these new metallics with smaller hardware such as door knobs and drawer handles, as these small features will give you a better idea for how larger updated fixtures will fit into your design.
Complement or Contrast
If you love everything about the room you’re updating, new hardware could be the icing on the cake. By accentuating the look of your decor with these polished details, your room will look complete with all the finishing touches. If a contrasted look is what you prefer, such as darker fixtures against light cabinets, consider using hardware with contrasting colors to make your existing decor stand out in your home.
Tie It All Together
Don’t limit the span of your beautiful hardware to only the interior of your home! Take these great accents outside with exterior hardware to match. While they may sound like small details, matching your house numbers, gate hardware, and mailbox to your interior hardware is a great way to tie your design together inside and out.
