Modern Door Hardware Update

March 18, 2019

I recently made such a minor update on my downstairs doors but had to share because it made such a difference.

All the doors in my house had the hardware they were built with. It is the brushed nickel finished that is standard with many of the homes built around the time mine was in 2010. Lately, as I’ve been updating other things around my house, they’ve really started to stick out at me as something that feels out of place. So I decided it was time to make a change.

A few years ago I painted all of my downstairs interior doors Urbane Bronze by Sherwin-Williams. I’m still pleased I made that update and eventually plan to update the upstairs doors as well.

Here’s a before and after of my door hardware:

I did some research and eventually settled on the Halifax collection by Kwikset in Iron Black. I wanted something modern, but that would also be in style for a while.

At under $30 for the standard handle set, it’s not too ridiculously priced. But when it comes time to make a change like this, you start to realize there are way many doors in your house than you thought.

While I was at it, I updated the hinges as well. I picked out some matte black hinges from Amazon. This is a pretty quick and inexpensive update, you don’t even have to take the door down if you just work on one hinge at a time.

A few doors can easily be updated in an evening, and it’s an easy way to make a space feel more custom. I also found a deadbolt that matched the set for the door between my garage and kitchen.

Updated door hardware for the win! This goes down as one of my favorite ways to quickly and easily update a space, along with window treatments and lighting.
