Schlage Eller lever | Schlage

These eight door hardware pairings will create a look that will have you falling in love with your home all over again.



What better time to celebrate our favorite “couples” than on Valentine’s Day? These eight door hardware pairings will create a look that will have you falling in love with your home all over again.

Schlage Custom™ Eller lever with Collins trim in Matte Black

The straight lines in this pairing, along with the Matte Black finish, creates one of the most modern looks on this list. An Eller lever with Collins trim goes perfectly with Scandinavian design, so think of adding it when you are drawn to minimalist décor and furniture with clean silhouettes. The finish gives a pop of visual interest in neutral-colored rooms and especially against a bright white door.

Schlage Custom™ Hobson knob with Collins trim in Matte Black

The Collins trim becomes a bit more classic when paired with the glass Hobson knob. Because of the mix of styles, try it in a room with a more eclectic transitional vibe. Large windows and well-lit rooms will show off this pairing to its best advantage when the gleam catches the details of the knob.

Schlage Custom™ Whitney lever with Camelot trim in Aged Bronze

We’re getting even more traditional now thanks to the curves of the Whitney lever and Camelot trim. Use this pairing if your home also has wrought iron scrollwork like that found in stair rails. It also looks great with other Colonial touches.

Schlage Siena knob with Wakefield trim in Oil-Rubbed Bronze

For a truly traditional feel, try this oval-shaped combination, especially if you have a Federal-style home like those found most frequently in Virginia. In the Oil-Rubbed Bronze finish, it is particularly well-suited for homes with Old World character and stone accents.

Schlage Custom™ Alexandria knob with Camelot trim in Satin Brass

The highly detailed glass Alexandria knob with a trim in Satin Brass gives this pair a truly traditional look. Use it on Victorian-style doors and in rooms with decorative molding to help continue the classic feel throughout your space. This couple is perfect for ornate homes.

Schlage Georgian knob with Addison trim in Antique Brass

When you need something understated but don’t want boring (because who does?), you can’t miss with the Georgian knob and Addison trim. They’re both simple and versatile yet have a sly elegance about them. With their traditional roots, try them in rooms with crown molding – a nod to the Georgian architecture that inspired these hardware designs – as well as ornate windows and stained woods.

Schlage Custom™ 3/4 trim Century handleset with Latitude lever in Bright Chrome

For homes with a contemporary exterior, try a Century handleset. The Latitude lever for the interior side of the door will continue the modern aesthetic inside and complement the clean, rectangular lines of the exterior grip. You’ll want to use this duo with simple, minimalist décor. And the Bright Chrome finish will positively pop against a dark-colored door.

Schlage Custom™ Plymouth handleset with Andover knob in Aged Bronze

If you’ve chosen a Plymouth handleset, we recommend the Andover knob for the interior side of the door. This pairing is typically a good fit for transitional homes, but the Aged Bronze finish inches it closer to the traditional end of the spectrum. Because of this, we like this handleset and knob on Colonial homes with six-panel doors and neutral colors.

Of course, these aren’t the only pairings we offer. See our complete list of styles at Schlage.com. And if you need more inspiration for giving your home a look you love, find us on Pinterest and Instagram.
