When it comes to interiors, beauty really is in the details. On average you interact with hardware more than any other feature. Every time visitors turn on a light switch, plug in an appliance, or open a door, your design decisions are being evaluated unconsciously. 
What problems do you encounter when choosing hardware for your home? 

One of the most common questions our customers ask is, what is the difference between finishes? Below is a round up of our top 3 best selling finishes during the first quarter of 2023.

Polished Brass

Product Shown Classic Collection Polished Brass

This brass finish is polished so initially it is a mirror-like reflective surface, which carries an almost golden brass tint. It patina's over time, creating a distinctive, timeless look which blends perfectly with neutral tones.  

Aged Brass

 Brushed Satin Brass

Product Shown Classic Collection Brushed Satin Brass

Brushed brass has been treated to give it a more subdued, matt appearance. A protective wax coating is applied at the final stage of manufacturing, allowing it to age gracefully and making it more durable.

Hopefully, these mood boards provide you with a good idea of the differences between each finish all of which suit both modern and traditional homes.
