Add value to your home by updating its hardware. A common misconception is that only large-scale projects can bring significant returns. However, if you’re working with a budget, you can still update your home in a valuable and affordable way. Here at Fisher Lumber, we partner with Stanley Hardware to provide you with the locks, locksets, hinges, and door systems that you need to help your home stand out. If you want to learn precisely how to update your home’s hardware, then keep reading! We’re going to share some simple tips with you today.
Consistency is Key
Your hardware choices don’t have to match exactly, but they do need to complement each other. This golden rule applies to design, renovation, and even fashion. Pick a finish or two that complement each other and keep this consistent throughout the entire house. Stanley Hardware has a multitude of locks, deadbolts, and door closers if you’re looking for a streamlined look.
Modern and Classic Designs Can Coexist
When choosing your hardware, or any home addition for that matter, you want to think modern but classic. Pick a modern style that doesn’t look outdated. Also, make sure that the selection isn’t so bold that you’ll get tired of looking at it. Imagine red cabinets. They may seem fun and lively, but after a while, you’ll probably want to replace them. There’s nothing wrong with being edgy or eclectic so long as you’ll enjoy your hardware for years to come.
Functionality and Style Should Coincide
Of course, aesthetics is what a homeowner looks to when remodeling or upgrading their home. However, make sure that your home’s hardware is functional, as well. Nothing is more frustrating than something that looks nice but doesn’t operate properly. A deadbolt that you’ll never be able to lock or a door handle that isn’t easy to grip will only annoy you in the end. Imagine a faucet that’s not the right size for your sink. It would leave a big mess.
