When you’ve been through the hard questionswhat window material you want, what color should the windows be, do you want double or triple pane glass and so onyou might think you’re on the home stretch. While that may be true, you still have to decide what hardware finish you want on your Irvine, CA replacement windows. The hardware can transform the windows from ordinary into something truly beautiful. Most windows look bare without hardware, after all. Selecting the right finish is important to the aesthetic outcome.
Standard Or Premium Finishes Many window replacement Orange County CA options come with standard and premium finish options. The standard generally includes white, gold, brown, and beige. Premium finishes are often bronze, satin nickel, and brass. However, these choices can vary based on the manufacturer in question. You might want hardware that blends in with the trim around the windows, in which case white is often the best choice. You might also like something shiny that stands out a bit and draws attention to the window.
Consider Age And StyleThe age and style of your home may have an impact on your overall choice. Older homes might need a traditional finish, like bronze, while a modern home can fit a neutral tone like white or beige, into the style of the room. Test colors out by comparing your paint color with hardware options to see what looks good with what you have to offer.
Mixing Hardware FinishesSome homeowners might try to automatically match their replacement window hardware with other hardware in the home, but that’s not necessary all the time. Not every piece of hardware in a home hast to match and not even every piece in one room has to be aligned. You can find the same metal color with a different finish for hardware in one room, for example, and that will make the room go together without looking too busy. Pick a main color for a dominant look and keep the finishes similar, for the most part. But you can also accent with different pieces you want to highlight. Try to keep cool tones and warm tones together so nothing looks over the top.
