You’ve heard a million times that hardware is like the jewelry of a room and changing it out can make a big difference in taking a home from builder-grade to designer. But what should you consider? For that, we turned to Ted Roberts, Style & Design Chief at Schlage. “Today I see all types of black being popular. Gloss black, black stainless steel, textured black and matte black, just to name a few,” he says. Choose the finish you like best, then incorporate a few other touches in that same style to really pull the look together. “Look for all the small elements of your room, from candleholders and picture frames to light switches and door locks,” Roberts explains.
