Homeowners looking for sexier hardware finishes?

The finishes homeowners are looking for on their hardware and ironmongery are becoming more diverse and ‘sexy’.

This is the view of a Director at SDS London who says that he is seeing an increased demand for sexier finishes on the hardware they supply.

Simon Ayers, who is Sales and Marketing Director at the company, says that Matt Black finishes are staying on trend for 2017 and that demand for copper finishes from homeowners looking to add that special touch to their new windows and doors, is also particularly popular.

He comments:

“Ironmongery is no longer seen as an additional extra but part of the whole window and door package. Like the trend for coloured windows and doors, consumers are looking to add a personalised touch to hardware with coloured finishes too.”

“We supply large volumes of hardware for both domestic and commercial projects and currently stock more than 10,000 products including both traditional and contemporary styles of ironmongery. Matt Black has been a firm favourite for ironmongery we supply but we are now also seeing increasing demand for copper finishes.”

For consumers looking for something unique, SDS London can also provide a bespoke finishing service to offer architects and designers a wide selection of ironmongery in almost any colour including chrome and matt finishes.

Colours can be paired with both traditional and contemporary styles of hardware – and even colour matched to existing windows and doors – offering a customisation option for almost any project and consumer preference.

Simon adds:

“Whether traditional or contemporary, consumers are looking for ironmongery that stands out. By offering a greater selection of colours, architects and designers can take advantage of this shift in tastes and appeal to the consumer’s more adventurous side.”

SDS London supply hardware to the retail and trade sectors – including architects, designers and specifiers.

The company has had its products specified in many major projects in the UK including Claridges Hotel, Jamie’s Italian Restaurants and the Imperial College in Kensington.
