10 Moments Brass Hardware Looked Its Best | Schlage

Brass is back with a whole new look! Here are ten times brass hardware looked its best to help inspire a modern upgrade to outdated hardware.



You may be one of many homeowners living in an older home that was built and decorated when bright brass hardware was in its prime. It was an easy choice as it coordinated with most home decor of that time. Fast forward to 2016 and depending on your personal style, bright brass may not be the most appealing choice.
Try this modern upgrade for your outdated brass hardware.
But, what would you say if we told you that brass is back? It's true. Brass hardware is trending again but not the same brass you may remember from the 80's. This brass has a much more modern appeal and suits many styles from traditional to contemporary. We're talking about Satin Brass and you'll be hard pressed to walk in to any home decor or fixture shop and not find this popular finish on the showroom floor. You can thank its rise to popularity due to the flexibility of this finish - allowing homeowners to update their hardware without clashing with their current style.
