Window Replacement Hardware Options

By November 11, 2019No Comments

There are a lot of decisions to make on replacement windows in West Jordan, UT. You’ll start by deciding that you need the windows in the first place and then you’ll likely decide on a material for the frames. Many homeowners move to frame colors next and then glass packs. All of the details have to come together to build the quality windows you want for your home. However, one of the finishing touches will also be very important to how the window looks and operates once it is installed—the hardware. There are lots of different hardware options. Here are a few styles to consider:


If you like the look of your new windows as is and you don’t want the hardware to stand out, you can get the same color as the window and allow it to blend in. When the windows are closed and the hardware is in place, it doesn’t stick out and show off. This is a nice way to get a streamlined look and have a modern touch in your home.


If you’d like your hardware to look like a piece of jewelry and a true finishing touch on the windows, consider a metal material with a shiny, glossy finish to it. You might notice fingerprints on these hardware pieces, but you can easily buff those off when you clean. Plus, the hardware really draws the eye and adds a new sense of style to the space.


If you like a certain metallic look, but you don’t want it to stand out as much, get a brushed or buffed finish on the metal. The metallic look is still there, but it has a muted sense and understated elegance to it. You will still see it against the window, but it won’t stand out quite as much.

Simple Or Complicated

There are so many hardware pieces on the market, it can be hard to know where to start. Think about your preferences, along with color. Do you want something simple in design so it blends into a modern look? Or do you want something unique that guests may have never seen before?

Matching The Doors

One way to make the decision easy is to simply look at the knobs and hinges on your doors and get something to match. That can bring the whole home together and make everything look nice as a group.
