So far during our renovation, there are a few items that have been gaining attention. I just found out that House Beautiful magazine is going to feature our door hardware (pinch me!). Our interior and exterior door sets are one of my favorite things we’ve installed up to this point. They’re gorgeous, heavy, and have a beautiful brass finish. Door hardware can easily be forgotten as it seems like selecting the door itself is more important, but I beg to differ. Check out this roundup of statement door knobs that will make an unforgettable entry.I suppose it’s best to start with the exterior entryway sets. After all, that’s the first piece of hardware people notice and touch when entering your home. If you want to increase your curb appeal- pay attention to your front door. A fresh coat of paint and updated hardware goes a long way!

I have the classic brass entryway set (#7) installed on my front door, shown above. I love it! It’s nothing too crazy or modern, and is the perfect neutral for any aesthetic. If our home were more modern, I’d go with #1 or #2. I’m also loving #5 – it has a fun, chic vibe. In regards to other fun hardware for your door… check out this post and add some personality with a vintage knocker.
Inside, the style of your door will certainly influence the interior hardware you select.

A lot of these have customizable options… from the color and finish to the backplate and knob styles- you can most likely edit the details. A good way to make your original doors look more expensive and add weight (especially if they’re hollow core), is to add solid, heavy hardware. Do you have favorites from the roundup or any other amazing resources I should add?
