Hardware: Brass to What?
I think bright, shiny brass went out of style the month after we installed it all over our new home several years ago, in doorsets, light fixtures, etc. I have not been able to justify the expense of "updating" to new finishes just for style's sake. However, an upcoming small (I hope) remodeling project will require replacing 3 exterior doors and that means new doorsets, and a couple of new light fixtures. I'm trying to gain some insight into what the up and coming door hardware, light fixtures and trim hardware finishes may be, so that maybe I can get ahead of the curve. I would like to choose a combination of the finish I like best that also has the promise of being "in style" for awhile. Our house is best known as low country farmhouse style and decor is casual. Price is important but not the critical factor. I'm not a fan of the dark toned finishes. Suggestions please!???
