Curb appeal finishing touch

Your front door is more than just an entrance, it’s also a showpiece. Here are 7 examples that prove door hardware is the ultimate curb appeal finishing touch.



Your front door is more than just an entrance, it’s also a showpiece – one of the first things a guest sees. That’s why it’s important to choose the right handleset. Schlage offers a wide variety of styles and finishes, from crisp edges to flowing silhouettes, classic to contemporary, all designed to ensure that your front door is the perfect introduction to your home. Here are some stunning examples that prove the handleset is the ultimate curb appeal finishing touch.

1. Century Handlesets

The Century handleset features a clean, rectangular design that’s often described as tasteful and sophisticatedly modern. This contemporary handleset looks chic when paired with the Latitude, Northbrook or Merano interior levers. Matte Black, Bright Chrome or Polished Nickel finishes really showcase its contemporary roots.


The Century handleset comes in a 2-piece design with separate deadbolt and handleset grip as well as the 3/4 design with the deadbolt and grip combined into a single piece. The variations provide even more options to help you capture the perfect look for your home.


2. Camelot Handlesets

The Camelot handleset brings to mind charming entryways thanks to its scalloped details around the edge. It draws on traditional Colonial style but, because those details are more subtle, also fits into the transitional category. Camelot, which is our best-selling handleset, looks best when paired with the Accent lever or the Georgian knob on the interior and finished in Satin Brass, Satin Nickel or Aged Bronze. For a more updated look, consider the Sacramento lever, which, like the Accent lever, is curved but with a gentler wave.


Like the more modern Century design, you can find Camelot as a 2-piece or 3/4 handleset.


3. Addison Handlesets

The Addison handleset tends to lean more to the traditional end of the spectrum, but because of its simple yet sophisticated design, it can also suit well with more transitional homes. Featuring a rectangular shape, slight ridging along the edges and gently curving grip, it’s easy to see its allure. The Addison handleset looks stunning when paired with either an interior Georgian knob and Birmingham lever for the traditional aesthetic. The Avila lever, with similar edge detailing, is also a good fit. However you pair it, try this handleset in an Aged Bronze, Matte Black or Distressed Nickel finish.


4. Greenwich Handlesets

If you like the clean lines of the Century style but want a bit more softness, you’ll love the Greenwich handleset. Ideal for Mid-Century Modern homes, the slight curves of the grip and trim are inspired by the curves of 1950s appliances and cars. This uncomplicated design pairs with a variety of interior door hardware, but it really shines with the Broadway or Sacramento levers. To give the handleset a more modern flavor, choose a Matte Black or Bright Chrome finish.


You can find Greenwich in a 2-piece or 3/4 handleset design.


5. Plymouth Handlesets

The Plymouth handleset is recognizable by its oval shape. Most common on traditional homes, it can also be a gorgeous accent for transitional architecture depending on other, surrounding décor. Because it was inspired by Federal-style homes of the Colonial Era, we love pairing this with the Plymouth or Andover knobs or the Accent lever, particularly in Bright Brass, Satin Nickel or Aged Bronze finishes.
