The night sky, swirling patterns and colorful stars are just some of the designs you can use for doors around the house, for kitchen or bathroom cabinets, or even for shower doors.

When you have invested in luxurious marble surfaces, your room deserves natural stone switch plates to pull the style together. Available in many different high quality coordinating stones, you can also ensure the perfect match by personally providing off-cuts from stone you have already chosen to use in your home. The stone wall plates are entirely hassle-free, as they come in exactly the same height, width and thickness as common plastic wallplates. For an entirely harmonized look those stone switchplates are that final missing link.

Give cabinets personality and charm with the gorgeous decorative hardware from Laurey. A fantastic way to add personal character to both bathrooms and kitchens, Laurey offers a stunning selection of traditional and modern hardware styles. From sparkling glamour to warm ethnic woods, these handles make a dramatic impact. Designed for lasting beauty, the die cast, stamped and solid brass pieces are finished with a triple lacquer treatment. The lacquer finish not only provides a fine finish, but also protects the pieces from discolouration.

Beautiful furniture and cupboards deserve the finest accents. For ten years Notting Hill has been creating stunning decorative hardware that adds gorgeous detail. Notting Hill's gem stone knobs and pulls feature a semi-precious stone at the centre of a metal handle. The surrounding metal is sculpted in detailed relief that gives fabulous texture and decorative style. Notting Hill offer two styles: you can add British tradition with their Victorian Jewel knobs or Eastern elegance with the Jewelled Lily Knob.

This exotic Door Decorative hardware from Schaub & Co. can add the finishing touches to your already beautifully decorated space. The inlayed shell design features solid brass knobs and pulls that are adorned with a rich, tortoise-shell texture in warm tones of brown and amber to create a distinctly sophisticated look. The inlayed rattan version adds a bit of tropical flair by incorporating a natural woven rattan look into solid brass hardware to invoke the exotic spirit of the islands.
