     Arts and Crafts style homes, often referred to as Craftsman style homes, pride themselves on using local man-made materials to construct not only the exterior of the home but all of the interior decorations and hardware as well.  This includes any door handles, hinges, switch plates, as well as pieces of furniture like beds, chairs and tables.  While these styles of homes may be adorned with traditional brass metals, pewter and copper are the most popular.

     If you are renovating your Craftsman style home, our website has a wide variety of hardware pieces to choose from in this style and most of them are available in the most popular finishes.  We carry an especially large selection of door pulls and handles, since these tend to be not only the most popular pieces of hardware purchased, but also the ones that tend to make the biggest statement.  One of the first things people notice when they arrive at your home for this first time, aside from the exterior structure itself, is the door handle.  Whether or not it makes a statement, or how much of one, is a decision up to the owner, and the finish choice has a lot to do with this.

Pewter is one of the most popular materials for manufacturing craftsman style pulls.

    

     Pewter will stand out more against a light-colored door but at the same time can add a simple touch.  Copper on the other hand tends to add a statement no matter what the finish of the door is.   New copper has a sheen that cannot be duplicated with any other metal, and the patina that develops over time adds an additional touch.  Natural patinas tend to preferred to chemically created ones, and can only truly be appreciated over time.

    

 

     All of the Arts and Crafts style door pulls and door handles we feature ship in a timely manner with all the mounting hardware you will need to install it, saving you the time and trouble of finding just the right pieces to finish the job.
