Building 101: Hardware Essentials (Part 1)

When it comes to hardware, it’s not only a question of what looks good, but what is functional, practical and durable

Shares

Door knobs, locks, hinges and bolts are probably the last thing on our minds when selecting for an interior design project. However, these interior hardware are probably the most crucial of all and must be given the topmost consideration given that they provide security, access and privacy. Given the different options available today, how do we know what to choose without it looking too standard nor too showy?

A tip - go for a polished look at all times. Make sure that all visible hardware must have the same finish (brass, stainless, antique, etc.) and of course depending on the design style, you may opt for the standard or a more decorative model to give it more personality and authenticity especially for themed rooms.

Take note of these basic hardware pieces.
