The window and door hardware finish adds a flair of color and “pop” to your home’s aesthetic. Sure, you may just want a simple, no-nonsense color to accentuate the metallic parts of your home. Still, why settle for one when you have a selection of shiny stuff to apply to your hardware?

Woodbridge Home Exteriors is one of the experts when it comes to choosing suitable finishes for your windows and doors. Here are some of our choices:


Bronze is a traditional finish and thus paired well with a house with shades of natural, “earthy” tones. These are homes with a touch of brown, yellow, or green or those employing wooden floors. A bronze finish often goes great with Victorian-inspired dwellings or hipper, Arts & Crafts era homes.


The bright sheen of brass is often a staple in Colonial-era homes, which were prevalent in the middle of the ‘90s. Brass is often the most common, which makes them appropriate for any kind of house and architecture. If you have a house with chandeliers or French patio doors, for example, brass would not look out of place.


Chrome is a more modern, utilitarian finish. There are two subdivisions of chrome—bright chrome and satin chrome.

Bright chrome is more apt for homes with Art Deco-inspired decor or those that are contemporary in the ‘20s. Meanwhile, satin chrome fits a utilitarian and industrial vibe, making it best for homes with a modern or postmodern property.

Whatever the style, chrome’s mirror-like finish arrests the eye, which makes it a poor choice for houses painted in bright colors. When using chrome finishes, pair it with neutral paint.
