Create one consistent impression with gate hardware, garage door hardware, and other exterior door hardware that complements the style and detail of your home. From the front gate to the garage door, much of the same hardware can be used on outbuildings of all kinds to pull everything together into one eye-catching package.
A smartly designed home is more than the house alone. Gates, garages, barns, and other outbuildings that surround your home are as important to great design as the house itself. Gate hardware, garage door hardware, carriage house door hardware, and barn door hardware that coordinates with entry door hardware and window hardware contributes to a harmonious and cohesive look.
Whether it be purely decorative (e.g., clavos, dummy strap hinges) or highly functional (e.g. gate latches), hardware choices should faithfully reflect the home's architectural style. For example, hand forged iron gate hardware and door hardware fuels the Old World appeal of classic Tudor, Mission, and Spanish Colonial home exteriors while handcrafted bronze gate hardware and door hardware is integral to Arts & Crafts and rustic home designs. The versatility of aluminum allows decorative aluminum hardware to be adapted to replicate most any type of hardware construction or architectural style. Like bronze, aluminum is resistant to corrosion. It is also economical; thus eliminating the need to compromise style to fit a tight budget.
Gates, garages, and garden sheds should contribute rather than detract from the charm of period homes. Choose hardware that ties gates and outbuildings to your home by selecting hardware that is consistent with the rest of the house; both in style and detail.
