How to Choose the Perfect Door Hardware to Complement Your Home’s Style

Looking for modern front door hardware or door knobs and handles to match your aesthetic?

In this article, we’ll discuss how to match door hardware with your home decor and how the team at BDW can help.

Do Door Accessories Have to Match Your Home’s Style

When choosing the perfect door hardware, it is ideal if it matches your home’s aesthetic, and all the door accessories are the same. However, if your current door knobs and handles are quite old and you’re looking for modern front door accessories, at the very least you will want to make sure they are complementary.

How to Match Door Hardware with Your Home Decor

There are several things you can consider when choosing your new door hardware. Here we’ll go through some of the most important factors to take into account.

Your New Style Versus Your Existing Style

What is your home’s existing style and is it something that will change with the addition of new door knobs and handles? Are your door accessories going to match your new style or vice versa and are you colour matching to your current door?

Type of Door

The type of door you’re trying to source hardware for will also come into play. Some different types of doors include:

– bifold
– french
– swing
– cafe or saloon
– pocket or sliding

Metals & Finishes

Of course, the metals and finishes you prefer are major considerations when choosing your door hardware. For instance, if you don’t like matte black, you’re unlikely to choose door accessories with this finish.

Where It’s Installed

Some materials will wear faster than others. For this reason, it’s important to think about where your new hardware is installed.

If it’s in a high traffic area (like modern front door hardware) you may want to choose something more durable and hard wearing over something ornate and high maintenance.

Who Accesses It

Who accesses your door and therefore the hardware you choose will be another consideration. For instance, if you have little children, you may want something that is a little more difficult to open or can be childproofed easily.
