Grandeur vs Emtek Exterior Door Hardware

Today, I wanted to compare the two exterior sets we have and which direction we’ll be moving toward as we continue along with our renovation.

It definitely has a more traditional shape and I love the softer handle profile. This set feels very elegant and is a nice contrast to our very visually sharp paneled doors.

Both hardware sets are very comparable… in price, aesthetic, size, weight, and finish. For me, it boils down to the brass color, style, and durability.

I hope this post was a helpful one, if you find yourself searching for exterior hardware.
