Our Favorite Emtek Hardware in Every Finish

Ask any designer, and they’ll tell you how hardware selection can have such a transformative impact within a space. While it may feel like a minor detail, hardware can significantly transform the look and feel of your cabinetry, doors, and more. We know the sourcing process requires quite a bit of legwork, so we’ve rounded up the best Emtek hardware in three finish options.

In case you’re unfamiliar, Emtek hardware is made and custom-assembled to order in LA, and their solid-brass products always deliver a noticeable level of quality. You can shop Emtek hardware at 11,000 dealers throughout North America, and we’ve spotted their products in projects by industry leaders like Jean Stoffer and House of Jade. You’ll even find their pieces within our Austin home and IDCO Lake House.

Our Emtek hardware selections run the style gamut, and we’ve broken them down into brass, flat black, and polished nickel finish options to help get you started.

There are several directions to go when selecting brass hardware by Emtek, but two of our favorite finishes are unlacquered brass and satin brass. Unlacquered brass is an excellent option for those who want a more unfinished look that will develop some patina and character over time. It will show signs of age, but it’s all part of the charm. Satin brass, on the other hand, provides a more seamless look that will maintain its appearance for years to come. Both are beautiful options depending on the look you’re hoping to achieve.

Emtek’s flat black finish lends itself to a clean and modern aesthetic. When paired with light-toned cabinetry, it provides a stunning contrast to make a subtle statement.

As one of the most timeless finish options, you can’t go wrong with polished nickel. This finish pairs exceptionally well with cool color tones in the blue, gray, and white realm, but rest assured, its versatility makes it easy to use anywhere and everywhere. We used the Providence Knobs in Polished Nickel for our primary bathroom renovation and they’ve held up beautifully.
