Why Custom Bronze Hardware is the Best Choice for Your Design
Custom cast bronze has been prized for centuries for its durability and beauty. It is an ideal choice for interior design because it can elevate any style, from eclectic to modern. Its timelessness makes it an exquisite option.
For nearly 30 years, Rocky Mountain Hardware has been creating handcrafted bronze hardware and accessories of impeccable quality and enduring beauty. Our collections marry with any aesthetic and seamlessly tie projects together. From entry door handles to hooks and pulls and everything in between – including the kitchen sink bronze fixtures are:
- Durable: Bronze is a robust and sturdy material that can withstand wear and tear over time. It is also a non corrosive alloy and will not bleed, chip or peel. This makes it an ideal choice for frequently used hardware, such as doorknobs and cabinet pulls.
- Beautiful: Bronze has a warm, rich color that adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to any interior design. Its unique patina also ages beautifully, developing a character and depth that other materials can’t replicate.
- Versatile: Bronze can be cast into various shapes and sizes, making it a versatile material for hardware. Our selection of exquisite, hand-applied finishes also highlights the detail of our hardware and adds distinct style to each piece.
Marie chose cabinet hardware from the Maddox Collection in silicone bronze light to adorn the white oak cabinets in her abundantly sunny kitchen. Bronze is an excellent choice for the kitchen because the handles, pulls and knobs here are used daily. It is imperative to install hardware in this space that will function for a long time and withstand heat, steam, smoke, and cooking oils.
Rocky Mountain Hardware products are 100% made in the USA and undergo a rigorous 20-step process to ensure each piece functions precisely and reliably. But those aren’t the only benefits of adding custom cast bronze to your home.
