National Hardware Offers Tips for Tackling the “Little Things” This Spring

Installing gate hardware, updating house numbers and building planter boxes are a few quick curb appeal projects from the experts at National Hardware

LAKE FOREST, Calif. (April 12, 2016) – It’s the little things that make the biggest difference, especially when updating your home’s curb appeal. Easy updates can instantly enhance your home’s style and add personality, whether you’ve lived in the home for years or moved in yesterday.

Experts from National Hardware®, the leading manufacturer of home hardware, know small projects like creating a faux carriage door, installing new house numbers or building flower boxes are quick and easy projects that can instantly elevate a home’s curb appeal. These simple fixes will help take your home from boring to beautiful in less than a weekend, and without breaking the budget.


Create a Faux Carriage Door using National Hardware Decorative and Functional Gate Hardware
Carriage doors are trending in home design as they can bring a custom look to your home’s exterior. Install new Decorative and Functional Gate Hardware from National Hardware on your garage to get the look in less than 15 minutes. While the new hardware collection combines texture, shape and color in a variety of pulls, hinges and latches, National Hardware also offers Spear Gate Kits (MSRP $29.99; Lowe’s) perfect for carriage door projects that include four dummy hinges and two pulls of the same style.

“The new Decorative and Functional Gate Hardware is very easy to install and can quickly increase a home’s curb appeal,” says Jonathan Begg, Product Marketing Manager, Spectrum Brands, Inc. – Hardware and Home Improvement Division. “To really make the hardware details stand out, consider adding some fresh paint to the garage door that matches your exterior trim or an on-trend wood stain like walnut before installing the hardware.”

Update Exterior House Numbers
House numbers serve a clear function by helping others locate your home, but the experts at National Hardware believe the numbers also give homeowners the opportunity to show their style. Homeowners can pick a style and finish that matches or complements their existing home hardware from National Hardware’s collection of house numbers in five styles, offered in Satin Nickel, Brass and Black finishes.

Build a Flower Box using Heavy Duty Reinforcement
Flower boxes are effortless additions to a home’s curb appeal that bring fragrance and little pops of color, and are extremely cost effective to build yourself. Install the flower boxes underneath a window, or on the front porch to accentuate a front door step and add color to a walkway. Heavy Duty Reinforcement Hardware from National Hardware is both a decorative and functional addition when building a flower box, and can add an unmatched level of detail and design to your project.
