Interior Series with Jack Thompson & Co. | 5 Ways to Elevate your Interior with Hardware

  • Interior Design
 

Spence Willard are proud to collaborate with
Jack Thompson & Co.,
to bring you the latest interior design ideas, hints & tips

No. 1. Light Switches and Sockets

Switches and sockets used to be overlooked but a vast choice has developed over the past few years with many brands starting their own design and some new businesses are solely dedicated to them. This only proves the importance such common items can have on interiors. Let’s face it: they are everywhere in our homes and we use them every day.
Our go-to brand is Corston Architectural for classic British made products. We have used unlacquered or aged brass for a period property and bronze is particularly versatile as an up-to-date look in any type of home interior.
Bakelite light switches are also back in trend such as those sold by Swtch.co.uk
We really like the fun colours of the vintage looking porcelain light switches by KatyPaty.com (pictured)
.

No. 2. Door Handles and Hinges

These are subtle details that our eyes tend to pick up subconsciously, and the satisfying feel of a heavy door handle makes the quality of an interior literally tangible.
Again, using different finish such as aged brass or bronze does have a sophisticated grounding and established impact on an interior scheme.

No. 3. Mixing Metals

This is a great way to make a bathroom or kitchen scheme feel more relaxed and interesting.
It can be particularly helpful in a kitchen as most small appliances have a chrome or brushed steel finish and pairing it with brass allow for a wider choice or give more flexibility with what you already own when completing a refurbishment.

No. 4.  Cupboard Handles and Knobs

For a time and cost-effective way to upgrade a kitchen, changing the knobs and handles can significantly transforms the feel and look of a kitchen.
A playful way to make your kitchen unique is to mix a few different handle designs in the same finish.

No. 5.  Brackets

Open shelves are popular at the moment, they are great to create a focal point particularly in small spaces.
The brackets used for open shelves can become features on their own, it enables the customisation of a scheme and can highlight a certain style by being coordinated to the other metallic accessories in a room.
Corston Architectural, Yesterhome and Suffolk Latch Company are our preferred brands to source well designed ironmongery.
