30 Reasons Hardware Makes A Difference

dshardware
Paint always gets the credit for being the easiest way to dress up a room, but for me, hardware does a lot of heavy lifting, too. So we decided to devote last month’s hashtag challenge to celebrating beautiful hardware and all that it can do for a home’s interior and exterior. From stunning door knockers and door knobs to pulls, handles and latches, the right hardware is often the fastest way to spruce up any space. We asked DS readers to submit their favorite hardware photos (#dshardware) and hundreds of you sent in gorgeous photos from across the world. 30 of our favorites are in this post, and hundreds more are in the #dshashtag feed online. Thanks so much to everyone who shared their photos – they’ve inspired our entire team to keep an eye out for unexpected and unusual hardware at all times. xo, grace

I personally there are more than these 30 reasons. Hardware is just an essential part of our homes. Even a small change can make a huge visual impact. On one hand always be careful. On the other hand – the devil’s in the detail.

Lovely article and some excellent photography! The NY Public School one is incredible! Also love the one taken by Queenwgenn (amazing colour!) and the letter ‘R’ by Amoink. B-e-a-utiful!

In france we have many things like these to do the decoration of doors, you can buy on the antiquity markets , they are many in summer where you can buy at very very low prices.

Wow! If I could have the hardware from each one of those pictures, I would take it all in a heartbeat!
