Widely seen as jewelry for the house, architectural hardware puts the finishing touch on a design. Great hardware has the ability to elevate the outcome of a room with its own character, whether you’re striving for exuberance or subtlety.
Some nice hardware is quite pricey (with good reason, particularly when handmade to order). But there are also very affordable options which are perfect, particularly for for small DIY projects like breathing new life into older furniture or sprucing up a room with brand new door hardware.

These chunky pulls are a terrific play on the traditional look.

Squared off and clean, this slick cabinet hardware is the epitome of modern, and goes well with all kinds of decor. There are versions of the style for those with a higher-end and those looking for a less expensive alternative.
Particular antique hardware, such as the bits on the two yellow cabinetsare hard by which to organize, as they’re actual show-stoppers and you don’t need to overpower or overshadow them with additional hardware. Rick Hoge did a great job of introducing drawer pulls that compliment the cabinets without even attempting to match themand surely let the cabinet brings glow!
I am a sucker for classic glass knobs. When they’re clear glassthey blend in superbly with most decor, but utilizing colored knobs is a excellent opportunity to decorate a room and add comparison.
The fat wood pulls on the drawers in this ultra-paired down kitchen are a hot touch that talk into the plywood wall doubling as a accent and backsplash.

The stainless steel lever and rectangular backplate reinforce the simplicity of the monolithic yet warm modern door.

Lots of you are aware of my affinity for barn doors, however, which makes the room number the actual pull only knocked my socks off.
Working with warm wood and don’t want to cool it off with stainless steel, chrome or nickel? Try out an oil-runned bronze or blackened steel. For toilets, kitchens and other possibly”moist” rooms, consider having a matte lacquer applied to the hardware, therefore it won’t corrode or change color over time due to exposure to humidity or wet hands.
Houses are full of squares, rectangles and other right-angled types, therefore that I love the idea of bringing in a round hard surface to break up the monotony.

Ah, pocket doors, you slay me! I could go on for days about pocket door hardware, but one of my favorite resources is Rejuvenation; I could have lost in their gorgeous hardware (and each of the end choices ) for days. I like that the doorway hardware does not fit the cupboard hardware in this toilet, creating a more collected look, despite the overall warm, modern tones.
Obviously, fitting finishes is not a bad thing. The dark hardware onto such pocket doors can be a gorgeous complement to the metal framed windows and dark curtain hardware beyond.

I know I only wrote about liking the concept of dividing right angles, so strengthening them are able to make quite an impact, too. These easy squares are a terrific touch.

And these yummy little friends are a favorite of mine. I also adore them in round shape…

… like this. Quite Hollywood glam!
There is a lot to love about this slick, nautical bathroom: the ceiling treatment, the light fixtures, the tile and the nifty storage solutions. But would you look at these amazing rope cupboard pulls? They are a whimsical comparison to the more traditional lever handle on the door.

Oil-rubbed bronze knobs on stark white doorways are fine in my book any day of the week.
Locate an old doorway with gobs of character? Do not bother changing the hardware! I love the comparison between old an new in this toilet.
Mix it up! This amazing AGA stove/oven includes a classic feel (although maybe not a classic pricetag).

These modest chrome balls are the perfect hardware option to the high quality millwork, Calacutta marble counter tops and decorative light fittings.
