Trying to find new hardware for pre-drilled cabinets? If your cabinets are currently drilled for pulls smaller or larger than what you want, are there any options beyond refilling the holes, refinishing and repainting? YES! Emtek offers cabinet hardware back plates. They allow you to cover predrilled holes but also provide a chic aesthetic as shown here with our Geometric pull in this design by @pheintz
Happy Friday friends! We are kicking the weekend off right with a lil’ entry set giveaway with @krystine_edwards! Hit the comments for details!

Happy Monday! Mentally imagining ourselves soaking up sunlight in this secret garden instead of in the office, crisp Sauvignon Blanc in hand. Anyone else? 🥂😉
Multi Point lock trim is Emtek’s designer upgrade to the standard hardware provided on swinging patio doors. Whether you’re looking to match the rest of the hardware in your home to your exterior doors, or just looking for a fun or flashy upgrade for your patio, our Multi Point options come in every finish and lever style available. 📸 by @hilltophardware— swipe for the before!
We love a chic, minimalist kitchen but sometimes modern styles don’t quite feel like home. This beautiful kitchen from @cbcbuilds easily overcomes that obstacle by expertly pairing warm wood tones and brass accents with the cool color palate. 10/10 would move in tomorrow ❤️
Emtek’s office will be closed on Monday for Labor Day. How are you celebrating the long end-of-summer weekend?
Split finish mortise lock for the win! Do you know the difference between Emtek’s F20 (shown here) and F13 Mortise lock functions? F13 provides standard keyed lock function, in that the state of the deadbolt (locked vs unlocked) dictates the state of the outside handle. F20 requires a key for access. The outside handle is always locked, but can temporarily be over-ridden by the round release button on the latch plate. Retracting the deadbolt with a key also unlocks the handle while the key is inserted into the cylinder.
It’s the weekend! Get outside!
In Greek mythology, Helios is the god of the sun. In the Emtek product catalog, it is our most popular lever style. 😇
Wouldn’t mind spending our weekend at the @rockwellhouseredux...
IT’S LAUNCH DAY!! 🚀 Excited to welcome the latest editions to our pocket door mortise lock collection. *Scroll to see both styles!* ➡️ Emtek's Narrow Oval and Narrow Modern Rectangular lock designs feature a thin profile to replicate the ultra clean, minimalistic characteristics of pocket doors themselves. Complete with our time-tested, high-performance mortise boxes, they provide a chic, modern look with reliable functionality.
The cutest front door situation, complete with basket catch-all for summer kiddo accessories. Check out @lesleygrahamliving for more momma tips and cute interior styling!
S I M P L E “Door hardware…something I haven’t given much thought about most of my life. However, I spent about 3 weeks researching and deciding on a style I was comfortable with. Door levers and knobs can be as extravagant or as simple as you desire. I opted for one of the more minimal styles—keeping the shaft and rosette rounded to soften the modern look. All hardware is concealed with a short throw lever. I debated between black and brushed nickel for a while, eventually decided on brushed nickel because I think it would be more timeless then black.” Thanks @philcohen_ — looks pretty great if I don’t say so myself 😇
That morning light though...isn’t it amazing what a coat of paint can do?

Just a cute little before and after from the spring @oneroomchallenge by @sarahgunnstyle and featuring our new Jasper cabinet pull. All sizes of the Jasper will be back in stock by the end of this month—thanks for your patience! With 📷 by @angusfergussonphotography
Did you know Emtek offers black and white porcelain knobs and rosettes? They can even be paired with any of our brass options! We love how @westbayhomes mixed both color options in this dainty pairing.
Technology can be convenient but sometimes leans more function than fashion. At Emtek, we believe your smart home technology should blend seamlessly with your design aesthetic. All design can be both beautiful and functional. Case in point: our EMPowered Smart deadbolt, shown here on the home of @jennasuedesign
Some of our favorite details from the @southernlivingmag 2019 Idea House, designed by @heatherchadduck.
Who else has a sliding door installation project planned for this weekend? Details make the whole dang design, don’t they?
Need door accessories? Emtek can hook it up! 😜 📸: @fraichenutrition
Just checking in on the patina this unlacquered brass Athena lever has developed a year into this project by the uber-talented @studiorobertmckinley....😍 We are often asked about this finish and it’s durability. Unlacquered Brass is an uncoated version of our polished brass that is meant to elegantly age with use. It develops a copper, antiqued finish that gives it a vintage look with use and exposure (you’ll notice you can see fingerprints on this one, and that’s part of the beauty of this finish!). While it can be polished, it’s meant to develop character and aged beauty. Isn’t she dreamy? If you find yourself in Montauk, NY this summer, be sure to look up @mckinleybungalows for your lodging needs. You will most definitely not be disappointed.
Dealing with some serious #tileinspo over here. Isn’t this @fireclaytile something to behold? To be honest, all of @graymalin‘s lake house renovation, designed by @klinteriors is pretty dreamy—Hop on over to Gray’s blog or @housebeautiful to take the tour!
Knobs and pulls and doorbells galore, all in satin brass from @projectmplus for @ohjoy’s new home. What’s your favorite hardware finish?
Who else is feeling the long weekend vibes?
Happy Independence Day!! Wishing you all a wonderful holiday—Stay safe out there friends!
A stunning, sigh-inducing laundry room color story from @cbcbuilds, a highly recommended follow! 📷 by @sarahbakerphotos
Mix it up with mixed finishes! It’s a great way to give your doors some personality like @karinbohn did in her light and bright townhouse, shown here.
Polished finishes can get a tough rap for being higher maintenance. “I love the classic, transitional look of nickel and chrome and it matches my bathroom fixtures. But won’t it show fingerprints?!” The truth is...sometimes. But you have options! A crystal knob paired with a Polished Nickel rosette can be a great “best of both worlds” solution, as shown here by @katerumson of @the_real_houses_of_ig. 💫
Getting through Monday with a bit of heart-eye lust 😍 over this bathroom renovation from this Spring’s @oneroomchallenge by @casework.it. It is so so good. Mixed finishes ftw!
Specifying door hardware can be a bit overwhelming at first glance—there are tons of options to consider, between brand, style, finish, backset...phew! One thing that’s easy though? Handing levers! If you are standing outside a door, looking inside—which side are your hinges on? Right side means you have a right hand lever, like this one pictured. ☝️ Left side is left hand! How simple is that?
Happy #summersolstice! It’s the longest day of the year—How are you kicking off the season and enjoying the extra sunlight this weekend?
Pretty enamored with the Snow White’s cottage look and feel of this stunning home, designed by @mi.lamont. Our sideplate options, including the Stretto rosette shown here, offer additional scale options for your interior or exterior door hardware. Like our regular rosette options, but longer— and that can be paired with any available knob or lever!
Whether you’re dad to humans or animals (or both!), we’re wishing you the very best Father’s Day today! #happyfathersday
Happy Flag Day! Is anyone’s front door more festive than @most_lovely_things?Today is also National Bourbon Day, so choose your Friday evening activities accordingly (and safely friends!). 😇🥃 #flagday #nationalbourbonday
New today! Our Hammered Egg knob is now offered in expanded finish options including Satin Brass, Polished Nickel and Polished Chrome! Additionally, the Wilshire and Quincy rosettes are now available in Satin Brass. As with all Emtek brass door hardware styles, all of these new options are available to mix and match in both style and finish for a custom look all yours, without any additional up-charge or lead time.
“When choosing every day hardware, the right hardware looks good, feels good, and holds up to every day demands.” Can I get an amen on that mantra for our partners @yarrowsash in Winnipeg?
We love a navy cabinet moment amidst all the white, especially when paired with our French Antique finish. What is your favorite #colorstory in a kitchen?
Happy Monday! What are you looking forward to this week?
“Now that you’re about 3 margaritas in, let’s discuss upgrading those handles you have and hate. I love myself a detailed doorknob!” Us too!! Love the sass and this selection from @platinum.interiors! Thanks for choosing Emtek! ❤️🙌
How are you planning on celebrating the unofficial start of summer this weekend? Call me old fashioned, but I love kicking off a long weekend with a tidy house and a spotless kitchen. Anyone else? 🙋♀️ . . . Don’t forget: Our offices will be closed on Monday for the Memorial Day holiday and to honor the brave service and ultimate sacrifice of our fallen veterans. 🇺🇸
It may still snowing in parts of the country, but a branch of flowers (real or faux!) sure does brighten up any interior space, no matter how much like winter it feels outside.
