What can you change?
If you’re looking to upgrade your front door hardware, there are many parts to consider. Whether you want to change a few elements of your hardware scheme, or do a total overhaul, it’s important to first acquaint yourself with the pieces that comprise your front door hardware. For example, the rosette or backplate is the piece which is fastened directly against the door, providing a buffer between the knob or lever. Then there is door knob or level, and the key-turn mechanism, all of which can be changed individually or all together.
What styles are hot right now?
Mid Century modern and pure contemporary are two styles that are on-trend for the coming year. Both styles boast clean lines and no-fuss design, erring on the side of sweet, simple, and functional.
What finishes are on-trend?
In terms of finishes, polished nickel, brushed brass, satin nickel, satin chrome, and solid brass are all trendy choices.
On the whole, your door should be a reflection of your tastes more than being trendy. In fact, a growing trend in the industry centers around front door customization, and dime-a-dozen, cookie-cutter-doors are simply a thing of the past.
