2 Must-Try Finishes: Polished Nickel and Satin Brass | Schlage

Introducing our two new finishes: Satin Brass & Polished Nickel! Here's what you need to know to get this modern look in your home.




Welcome to the Schlage Family, Polished Nickel and Satin Brass!

If you've stepped into a home decor retail shop or boutique lately, you've probably noticed a few design trends coming through in a number of ways. More and more, we are seeing furniture, lighting and other accessories adopt unique, warm and sparkly finishes, particularly Satin Brass and Polished Nickel.
We are proud to say that we now offer a wide range of door knobs and door levers in Satin Brass and Polished Nickel, two designer finishes. Now you can use door hardware to coordinate with and complement other elements in your room, really creating a cohesive designed look.
“As décor and design trends change, we {Schlage} recognize that consumers are always looking for new ways to express themselves through their home’s unique style without sacrificing quality,” said Steve Down, Allegion residential leader. “It’s the smaller details and finishing touches that bring a home’s style together."

New to Polished Nickel and Satin Brass?

We can help. Here's what you need to know about these two gorgeous finishes.

Polished Nickel

Polished Nickel will add a glamorous, luxurious edge to any project. Inspired by the glamorous flair of the 1920s and 30s, Polished Nickel is a designer finish that says “contemporary” without shouting it. For homes with reflective accents, stainless steel appliances and mirrored surfaces, Polished Nickel provides a complementary flourish that won’t overwhelm its surroundings, making it a forgiving finish that’s still completely modern.

- For kitchen projects, Polished Nickel is a forgiving, modern finish that will match your new stainless steel appliances.


- For bath projects, Polished Nickel is a forgiving, modern finish that will match your new reflective towel rods and plumbing.


- It's a finish that allows you to reflect your glamour-inspired style in your door hardware.


- Polished Nickel will perfectly match homes with lacquered surfaces and glass accents, but is adaptable enough to coexist with other modern styles.


- Polished Nickel is a designers’ finish that suites with reflective lighting and plumbing, and makes a similar impact on the home.


Our Industrial Designer Ted Roberts says..."Mirrored and reflective surfaces are prominent in the Glitz & Glam style and from this perspective Polished Nickel is a perfect coordinating finish. The reflective characteristic of the finish fits perfectly in this type of decor while its warm tone adds softness and a refined appearance."

Satin Brass

Satin Brass is a designer finish that brings a classic look into the 21st century. Whether you’re looking to match brass lighting and plumbing, or just accentuate a traditionally elegant home while keeping it up-to date, Satin Brass is an ideal finishing touch to a current project—or an intriguing first step in a new one.

- Ideal in rooms filled with dark woods, brass accents, warm tones, and traditional furniture


- Satin Brass is a traditionally-styled designer finish without the designer price tag


- Satin Brass allows you to update one room at a time, without clashing with Bright Brass you may still have in other areas of the home.


Our Industrial Designer Ted Roberts says..."Satin brass, with its warm metallic tones is another excellent choice adding rich warmth and shimmer to the room. This finish coordinates especially well with black and blues creating bold visual contrast."
