Best hardware finish pairings for your front door color

Blue hues

Cool blue doors work perfectly with the edgy, cold metal look of Bright Chrome and Satin Chrome. Warmer blue doors take on a formal style in Satin Brass, making for a very rich pairing with high contrast. Satin Nickel, a highly versatile finish, adds a more subtle touch of silver.

Green hues

If you're looking for a little more drama, add a dark finish like Matte Black to lighter green doors for striking contrast. Darker green doors pair well with warm finishes like Satin Brass for a modernized version of a classic style.

Aqua hues

Pair a glamorous finish like Polished Nickel with darker aqua doors for a sophisticated yet fun look while the neutral tone of Matte Black works perfectly on a variety of lighter aqua hues.

Yellow hues

Reflective finishes like Polished Nickel and Bright Chrome punch up the drama on bold yellow doors. Aged Bronze features elegant, coppery tones that work well with dark yellows that have a hint of orange.

Red hues

A rich Matte Black lends interest to bold red doors by adding a high contrast element. Fiery red and orange doors work well with Aged Bronze, pulling out subtle coppery accents that peek through the dark finish.

Grey hues

Polished Nickel is the perfect choice to add a touch of sophistication to warmer greys. The mirror-like Bright Chrome adds a touch of character to cool greys.

Black hues

Combine a matte or satin-coated black door with gleaming Satin Brass to add a touch of classic elegance and warmth. Matte Black hardware on shiny, black-lacquered doors makes for a subtle yet chic combination.
