Hardware is the jewelry your house wears. In addition to its practical purpose, all exterior hardware—house numbers, doorbells, latches, hinges, knockers, and even the spigot for a garden hose—is a form of decoration.
The challenge is to choose hardware that sacrifices neither form nor function. And that’s where we come in. (Skip to the advice posts.) We’re obsessive sleuths when it comes to tracking down the best hardware options, from a hand-forged ring latch for a gate to a quietly glamorous, last-a-lifetime push button doorbell.
We know just where to find an indestructible mailbox with an iconic silhouette, and we’ll help you decide which house numbers (enamel tile? brushed aluminum?) will look best on your facade. Use our design guides to find hardworking hardware to dress up your home.
