What’s in a door? Depends on who you ask. Though we can all agree on one thing, a door should be sturdy and reliable. As an Iron Door Company who has been manufacturing high-quality iron doors for a long time, we know a few things about doors, including what hardware to put on them.
But when it comes time to outfit your custom new door with some top-notch door hardware, what’s the right choice for you? Do you decide based on color? On appearance? Or something else?
Well… we’re here to help with that decision. Here are some tips on deciding what iron door hardware is best for you.
1. Your home’s personality should help your decision. But don’t forget about your neighborhood. Because hardware is like the icing on the cake, the type and color should be reflective of the overall aesthetics of your home.
2. Your own personality should also be representative. Combine your home’s style with your own, and help narrow down your decision. If you like loud, go loud. If you like subdued, choose mellow. In the end, your door’s hardware is about functionality, as well as beauty, so be content in your decision.
3. Accessories also count as hardware. Interested in adding a door knocker? Go for it. Just try to match it to your handle in some way. Not that it’s not okay to be artsy! Just remember that your front door says a lot about you and your home, so choose wisely.
Bonus tip: Don’t forget to pick something that is easy to clean as well, or made from materials that don’t hold on to dirt. If your door sees a lot of action from dirty, grimy hands, be prepared to pick a color that hides dirt until you can clean it.
