Happy Friday! It sure feels good to be home and settling back into our regular routine after a little trip to Canada. Thanks so much for your shared excitement about the guest room this week. I’ve been getting quite a few questions about our interior doors and hardware since sharing that post. We’ve slowly been replacing all the hollow core doors throughout our home… we ordered the new ones from Lowe’s and you can read more about them in this blog post. As we slowly swap all of our doors for heavy solid core ones, we’ve also been adding new door hinges & hardware. Today that’s we’re talking about- specifically, brass door hardware. After all, hardware is like jewelry for your doors and it’s a key component that can really elevate the overall look of your home. I’m breaking down our door hardware, how we’re mixing & matching, sharing important information to know when it comes to selecting door hardware, as well as a big roundup of 30+ timeless brass hardware picks. Click through for the details!
When thinking about the interior door hardware for our home, to keep things cohesive I typically like to establish rules or a sense of hardware hierarchy. My best advice? Choose a hardware brand you love and stick to the same brand & finish for all the doors… mix it up and add interest with the shape, size, knob style, or backplate.
For example, I’ll assign all of our closet doors a certain look, all the bedroom doors a specific style, and they’ll be in the same consistent brass finish. I like things to look cohesive and intentional- yet layered. My two favorite hardware brands are Grandeur and Nostalgic Warehouse. We’ve used them throughout our last three homes and have been very happy with the quality, aesthetic, and functionality.
For our current house, we’ve been using the Carre Tall Backplate with either levers or oval knobs. I opted for the Vintage Brass finish, but it’s available in multiple colors, sizes, and configurations.
Alright, my top picks and finds for you… these are all interior sets, rosettes, backplates, and knobs so they’re ideal for interior doors. I’m partial to brass, so I pulled them in those pretty warm tones, but they’re also available in other finishes if brass isn’t your preference.

If you’re looking for the specifics when it comes to ordering & selecting hardware… like choosing the backset, figuring out exactly what function you need, a quick rundown of hardware vocabulary, etc- check out this blog post for the nitty gritty details.
Another thing to consider when selecting door hardware is hinges. Sometimes if I’m painting a door white, I’ll opt for white hinges so they virtually disappear. Other times, I’ll match the hinges to the doorknob and choose brass. It’s circumstantial in my book, and I feel they don’t have to be as cohesive.
I hope this post proves helpful if you’re ever on the hunt for door hardware! Let me know if you have any other questions I can help answer in the comment section below. Hardware and lighting are actually two interior elements I always feel comfortable splurging on because they make such a big difference in the overall look & feel of a house. Here’s to a great weekend ahead! Happy Pizza Friday, friends.
