Ah, you guys! I am SO excited to start revealing all my amazing renovation projects and updates to #MyHappyHouseDreams. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen some sneak peaks on my newest project - a house!! - on my Instagram Stories. And today, I am so so so SO excited to share our amazing hardware updates with Emtek!
Picking out my hardware for this new space was no easy task, but I’ve always known that I HAD to get Emtek products when the time right time came. It’s cheesy, but it’s been a DREAM of mine to renovate a house and brass hardware gives me alllll the big heart eyes. 😍😍😍
I first discovered Emtek on Pinterest - and reached out to one of their dealers to describe the vibe I was going for with this house. I knew I wanted something clean, modern, and eclectic. I painted the entire interior white so having statement pieces throughout the house (like fun hardware) was a must.
My first task was the kitchen. The original knobs of the house were dark and oval-shaped - and frankly did not match the aesthetic I had dreamed of. I (like many of you!) work on a budget so I wasn’t able to re-do my cabinets and knew I had to to use mod, brass hardware to give the kitchen a nice, easy (and affordable!) facelift. So, I browsed online and was immediately drawn to Emtek’s Mod Hex Pull and Mod Hex Knob. The best part about the knob buying process with Emtek is that almost every piece comes in multiple finishes, so you are sure to find one to your liking. I personally was drawn to the Satin Brass Finish for almost all of my pieces - it’s gold, it’s shiny, and it’s perfection.
I knew I had to use a similar finish for my yellow dutch door, so I picked out Emtek’s Dutch Door Bolt. It’s the perfect pairing with my hardware. The brushed gold look has really updated my kitchen and I am SO happy with the results! Hellllo, brass knobs + pink fridge + yellow dutch door = my kind of kitchen heaven!
The next area to tackle was the front door. Because I am going to be utilizing this house for short-term rentals, I knew I wanted something that had easy in-and-out access - and with a bold look. I was torn between having a regular keyed lock or a keypad with bluetooth, and decided to go with the smart home style EmTouch Keypad Entryset in flat black finish. The black accents my pink door SO well - and I could not be more excited at how this turned out. I was easily able to program it with unique user codes so that my future guests can easily come in and out of the house - without me having to meet them for the key!
And the last room of my house to update was the bathroom! I cannot be more excited about how it turned out. The floors, the clawfoot tub, the subway tile, the faucet and the hardware!! Everything just came out so magically together and it’s probably my favorite room in the house.
To keep up with the brass knobs and pulls in my kitchen, I picked brass finishes for my bathroom pieces (since the bathroom is right next to my kitchen). I found the MOST AMAZING bird faucet for my bathroom sink - and the Modern Brass Towel Bar was the perfect accent to the gold hues of the faucet.
Sooooo, what do ya’ll think?!? I hope you love everything as much as I do! I have to give a huge THANK YOU to Emtek for making all my hardware dreams come true! Every piece makes a huge difference in the overall aesthetic of #myhappyhousedreams. And pssssst, if you are every wanting an easy update to your space but can’t afford a full renovation, I highly suggest finessing your place with some fun hardware from Emtek!
