Hardware Designs of Fairfield, NJ has completed the new Altman’s display at its Fairfield, NJ location. The Altman’s team did one fabulous job in building and presenting this new extensive display at Hardware Designs. It was custom built to the available Hardware Designs space plan that was allocated to Altmans. Having just seen the finished product, I have to compliment the Altman’s folks in design and application. Faucetry, Tub fillers, Thermostatic More



BainUltra of Quebec, Canada, has partnered with Hardware Designs of Fairfield, NJ to establish their concept  of therapeutic care in the home.  Vedana is a word that means sensation or feeling according to the Bain folks.  This sensation refers to the state where we become conscious of our connection with the universe and the communion of the physical and mental being.  The Bain goal is to create harmony with the body, mind and soul, or simply stated, total relaxation.  When the Vedana concept was presented to me, I admit to being rather More



Hardware Designs has been doing stainless steel sinks for over thirty years now, and on name has become synonymous with ultimate quality.  That name is Julien, of Canada.  What makes this brand different is simple. Gauge for one thing will tell you just how resistant a sink is to denting or scratching.  Julien’s standard is 16 gauge.  Gauge numbering runs counter intuitive to  everyday thought.   The lower the number, the thicker the steel.  Standard stainless sinks run the gamut from 18g to 20g.  So, the truly inexpensive sinks are  typically 20 More



Once again, Hardware Designs has updated the Devon and Devon display space.  We have added new product as well as custom Devon and Devon floor and wall tile to compliment their console sinks and pedestals.  Uniquely different, interesting, and unusual are terms that can be used when describing the new product that Devon has to offer.  Sounds like a British outfit, but no, Devon is Italian with Euro styling and craftsmanship second to none. Devon offers something that you simply don’t see anywhere. The look is not common, while the pricing More



The shower, the 5 minutes peace for every person every day. For some, the only moments spent that way before they step into this fast forward life. With a few simple changes a standard bathroom can be transformed into a home spa and the simple shower can be transformed into a haven of health and wellness to help refresh, recharge and reset. Bain Ultra’s innovative 5 therapy system the Vedana, incorporates all 5 therapies into an elegant slim wall unit that can be installed in the shower stall. The Vedana transforms More



As more homeowners are deciding to renovate versus build a new house the question of personal taste is more relevant than ever.  Is it traditional, contemporary or “transitional”, this last term defines those homeowners who prefer to tone down the heavy traditional style and add modern concepts to their design ideas.  Many homeowners are faced with the real fact that times have changed, the popular green or pink bathrooms from the 80’s or the floor to ceiling tiled baths with their array of older fixtures, banjo counter tops,  or plunger friendly More



If you are like me, you must see and feel things before you can purchase them. At Hardware Designs in Fairfield, NJ you can do just that. They have the most abundant display of tubs (including some working tubs) in the North Jersey which is great for someone like me that likes to try things on for size. They also have a great section with working shower heads. I think this is just fabulous and a must have in every show room. At Hardware Designs you can see and feel a More



It is finally spring and we made it thru a very rough winter so how about some spring spruce up? Here at Hardware Designs in Fairfield NJ we are doing some sprucing up ourselves we have painted the exterior of the building and repaired our sign that was damaged by Sandy and we are now doing some sprucing up inside as well. Hardware Designs is the exclusive dealer for Devon & Devon here in NJ and we are expanding our displays with multiple tubs, consoles, and now Devon & Devon tiles More



Whether your style is traditional, contemporary or somewhere in between, you can have glamour in the bathroom. Rohl, Jorger, Altmans, THG and Watermark are just some of the companies that have faucets and shower systems with crystal handles in various styles that will suit your décor.  There is a plethora of cabinet hardware that can add a little glamour to your bathroom. The cabinet hardware from Edgar Berebi looks like it came from a jewelry box. A vessel sink set with Swarovski crystals from Link-a-Sink, or a cut crystal More



Paying a visit to Hardware Designs recently, to purchase a tub, I was absolutely moved to purchase something that I have never seen before,  All I wanted was a 72 x 42 bathtub to soak in.  I had no desire for a whirlpool or bubble massage tub, just a comfortable basic large bathtub. Sounds easy right?  Problem was that I was assaulted with all the new options that are now available. The first option was called Thermosense, which kept the backrest of my tub heated electronically. Now that was interesting in More



If you’re contemplating that long overdue bath renovation and haven’t been inspired by what you’ve seen after visiting a number of showrooms we’d like to suggest that you visit Hardware Designs in Fairfield, NJ. For, bath as well as kitchen products, architectural hardware and interior and exterior doors, their showrooms truly stand apart from the competition. A huge array of products are on display…from tubs to faucets, accessories to toilets, More



Nothing ties a bathroom together better than coordinated accessories. It’s often the smallest details that add the greatest impact when you consider an overall design. At Hardware Designs in Fairfield, NJ, their showrooms are a treasure trove of smart, reasonably priced accessories that can really make your bath a standout. From towel rings and bars, robe hooks, toilet tissue holders, tumbler and toothbrush holders, wall mounted or stand alone soap dispensers to toilet brushes in decorative housings and tissue box More



Now this is not intended to freak anyone out, but it’s an interesting point of fact that some faucet finishes, such as Oil Rubbed Bronze, are considered “living” finishes. Why you ask? Quite simply, a living finish is a non-lacquered, unprotected finish that “changes” over time. The changes in the finish are caused by oxidation from the air, as well as soaps, or even the natural oils that could be on your hands when you turn the faucets on More



I will make this simple.  I am building my third house, and trust me on this… it will be my last.  I have had enough plumbing, electrical, roofing, and god know what else issues to last for 5 more lifetimes!  All I can say is bless Hans Grohe for coming up with an almost goof-proof rough in for their thermostatic and balanced pressure shower valves.  The staff over at Hardware Designs suggested I have a look at the relatively new method Hans Grohe came up with.  Sure I was skeptical, like More



At Hardware Designs in Fairfield NJ, you’ll find the latest designs in door hardware, with selection options that will meet anyone’s budget.

If you thought that a Towel Warmers only function is to provide you with a nice, warm towel when you jump out of the shower, you’re missing a key feature of these products.  What they also do is dry your towel, so if you want to use it again after your next bath or shower, it’s dry, fresh, and not smelling like a locker room or a mildewed basement!  Sure, a warm towel feels great, but dry is where More



I was looking for a new kitchen faucet but wanted to avoid the overabundance of polished chrome and satin nickel finishes that seem to dominate this product category. At Hardware Designs, in Fairfield, NJ they introduced me to a finish called clear coat matte bronze on a beautifully designed faucet from THG. It was exactly what I was looking for…a soft patina in what I would describe as an antique brass finish which works perfectly in my kitchen. If you have a desire for More



I recently purchased a new kitchen faucet at Hardware Designs in Fairfield, NJ and the sales associate raised a related topic I honestly hadn’t thought much about…water filtration. The salesperson ran down a list of the possible contaminants frequently found when testing area tap water and then showed me how filtration will eliminate them from the water. Like many people I’ve been spending extra money for organic produce in the interest of my family’s health, but then rinse it under an More



Those little finishing touches that so often are overlooked can really make or break a room design when all is said and done. So, when you’re completing a room don’t forget to accessorize. Not accessorizing is like wearing a dress and heels and not doing your hair or putting on your makeup or jewelry. At Hardware Designs  we’re a treasure trove of great accessories. Towel bars, custom waste baskets, soap dispensers, lighting, cabinet hardware and don’t forget switch and outlet plates. More



When visiting Hardware Designs in Fairfield NJ, I was made aware of something I had never really considered before. I had an antique dresser, a much loved piece of furniture which I wanted to convert and use as a vanity in one of my bathrooms. The salesperson who was helping me explained that there is a huge difference between furniture engineered for use in a bath environment and those designed for use throughout the home where extreme fluctuations More



Recently my husband and I visited Hardware Designs with my contractor. At first glance I thought their product selection was going to exceed my budget. Everything looked beautiful but also looked expensive to me. Our salesperson soon dispelled that myth and patiently helped us find everything we were looking for all well within our budget. We found an air tub, some beautiful faucets in satin nickel, a great vanity, medicine cabinets and cabinet hardware. Our salesperson stayed with us every step of the way More



Bet you didn’t know how many different styles of house numbers are available. We’re not talking about the standard hardware store variety here, but typographic things of beauty just waiting to proclaim your address. At Hardware Designs you’ll be amazed at the selection they offer. Different sizes, styles, finishes and textures from manufacturers like Atlas, Baldwin, Deltana, Rocky Mountain and many others. Despite whatever numbers your address requires, you’re sure to give Hardware Designs a big “10” for service More



One of the most overlooked items when renovating the bathroom is a good quality exhaust fan. Here at Hardware Designs in Fairfield NJ, we feature exhaust fans by Panasonic. Some people feel that as long as there is a window in the bathroom they do not need an exhaust fan, but my answer to this is yes you do. After all, you’re not likely to open that window in the middle of the winter after a nice hot More



Who says soap pumps are a waste of money? They work fine, and to go a step further, they look great. They keep your counter clear of ugly soap bottles, and are just plain convenient! Soap pumps come in all sorts of shapes, styles and sizes, and better yet, they come in every conceivable finish!  So, get rid of the ugly soap bottles on your counter top and move up to a stylish pump  looks and works great.  Hardware More



More often than not, when I tell people I work at Hardware Designs, they respond by saying “pooh, they’re expensive”, or something like that. Realistically, that’s not the case. I would like to take this opportunity to clear this misunderstanding up.

Are we expensive? No. We discount every single product we sell – from a $5.00 cabinet knob by Hickory Hardware to a More



Not only do we sell doors for the exterior and interior, but we sell the hardware that you need to accompany each door.  No big deal right?  The key difference at Hardware Designs is our shop work.  We custom cut and install each hinge neatly and professionally. Each door knob or lever, each tubular latch or mortise lock, each flush bolt whether surface mounted or recessed, and each jamb is made to your precise requirement.  We use superior woods for each jamb, and not pine to help prevent warping.  Jeld-wen, Architectural More



 Showroom samples of Devon and Devon, a specialty plumbing fixture company based in Italy, have arrived and now proudly displayed at Hardware Designs, in Fairfield, NJ.  Simply stated, this stuff is beautiful, not to mention refined, different, and eye catching. Faucets, sinks, and console vanities are neatly laid out for our clients to see, feel and touch.  Devon, has been around Italy for many, many years, and reaching out to America is a big step in the right direction for them, simply because the More



It’s holiday time and the guests are coming over but the house is a mess. The kitchen faucet is leaking, the toilets are running, and the shower is dripping. Sounds as if it is time to do some updating. Here at Hardware Designs in Fairfield NJ, we have all of your plumbing needs to rebuild your castle. Hardware Designs displays toilets from major manufacturers such as Toto, Inax, St. Thomas Creations, Kallista, Duravit, and Porcher. Hardware Designs also has all of the latest design in bath vanities from companies such as Vanity More



It’s here!  The INAX toilet!  Not only are they quite with their silent stream flushing system, but soft lighting is available along with automatic flushing!  The fully automatic toilet seat system knows when you arrive and when you leave, so it opens and closes without any effort on your part! With a front and rear warm water washing system along with temperature and pressure controls, the INAX toilet is a perfect blend of toilet and bidet.  The seat itself is a soft/slow close  so there is no “bang” when lowering the More



In these tough times, with the economy being what it is, it gets more and more

difficult to close sales. The hardest part is dealing with the internet. Therefore we have to

be even better at what we do to close the deal. Recently, I had the pleasure of dealing

Today I went into Hardware Designs to look for cabinet hardware. I was prepared. I searched for hours on the internet and printed out pictures of the items that I wanted to look at. I even brought in a piece of the light fixture I was using and a drawer from my vanity and walk in closet. I was greeted at the door by the receptionist and had a cup of gourmet coffee while I waited for my salesperson. I More

Whether you are getting ready to sell your home or you just want to fix it up for your own enjoyment, we have a few ides for you.

Should one consider buying their plumbing fixtures online, or from a respected showroom?  This is not an easy question to answer.  Generationally speaking, the your generation, say 35 and under has grown up with the computer and has seen online business grow very steadily from virtually naught to billions of dollars today.  Faucetry online can be cheap, with free freight, but don’t look for any technical assistance, and if something is wrong with the product the return can be arduous and just plain annoying.  I am not one to knock online More



I built my home almost 27 years ago, and  one of the few things that got away from me was selecting the correct doors, both for the interior and exterior.  My builder had little to say about doors, and frankly, I  knew virtually nothing.  The doors he had delivered for installation were constructed of some wood edging with a masonite facing and they were hollow. These are virtually the cheapest grade of door you can find in the marketplace.  Sure, they paint up well, but the edges are poor and hardware More



I have often wondered just what the true purpose of a towel warmer is.  Sure, you step out of the shower, or the bathtub, and you wrap yourself of in a nice warm towel.  A wonderful feeling indeed!  It does not last very long though, so you have to  wonder just what the investment is all about.  The truth is, that it allows you to have a dry towel that was used either the night before or earlier in the day.  Some folks have a mildew issue, as their bathroom’s are More



I AM IN THE PROCESS OF HAVING MY HOUSE BUILT IN ALPINE, NJ.   WHILE THE HOUSE IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION I HAVE BEEN TO SEVERAL SHOWROOMS TO PICK OUT MY KITCHEN AND BATHS FIXTURES.  I WAS REFERED TO HARDWARE DESIGNS INC. IN FAIRFIELD NEW JERSEY BY A FRIEND WHO HAS HAD SOME RENOVATIONS DONE TO HER HOUSE.

Leather is truly such neat stuff. The feel, the color, the natural material, how can you knock this stuff!! Colonial Bronze of Torrington, Ct. has the perfect line.  Leather is not the cheapest cabinetware in the market place, and already, the Chinese are doing the usual routine of copying it at 1/3 the cost.  Lines from Top Nobs and Atlas are already flooding the market, but the finished are very limited.  But if quality is what you want with infinite base medal finishes for the posts of the knobs and pulls, then Colonial Bronze More



At first glance, there doesn’t seem to be much difference between whirlpools and air tubs. Both provide jet massages in a tub. But once you are in the market for one or the other, you will quickly realize that there are some important variances between a whirlpool tub and an air tub. The main distinguishing feature that sets the two apart is the mechanism by More



Anyone building or renovating a home always has a decision to make regarding the master bathtub, if there is room for one.  Should I purchase a whirlpool, or airbath, or should I just buy a soaking bath without all the nonsense.  All my friends who have done renovation say they never use their tubs and should have never purchased the jet or air systems!  Perhaps a wild and crazy shower with all the bells and whistles is a better idea.  Think of seven or eight foot shower with  a deluge shower More



Like the headline reads, 11 floors of Hans Grohe was approved recently with a contract to Hardware Designs of Fairfield, NJ.  The primary reason Hans Grohe got the nod was quality and price point.  Over the past two years, Hans Grohe has produced a  gaggle of lower price point items, from faucets to shower valves.  With their new Ibox valve system, it has made shower valve installation almost goof proof, and that is worthy of a headline  by itself!  When you are specifying several hundred faucets and 125 shower units, price does More



Buying a door, for the exterior or the interior of your home or office, is not as simple as it sounds.  The composition, the style, the measurement, the installation, the quality, the finish, the exposure to the sun, not to mention the price are all factors you will have to consider when doing your investigation.  Too much sun usually means fibre glass is your probable choice.  If you have adequate sun protection, wood doors can be stunning and the selection is limitless.  Jeld-wen has a selection that is most respected, and More



Just like buttons on a blazer, cabinet knobs give beauty and character to your cabinets. There are many ways to refurbish your home, and stripping the wallpaper or painting might not be your cup of tea. However, replacing your cabinet hardware can be a fairly easy, project to update your home. No pressure to have everything done at one time – you can go from cabinet to cabinet at your own pace. And more often then not – all you need More



So, the real deal is that I am past 60 years of age, and my vision leaves something to be desired, to say the least, and I have not even mentioned my lousy hearing!  I wear contact lenses, so at least I can see, but when it comes to close up work, I can’t see “Jack” and he is not my husband!  First off, I have to put my lenses in, and then add the various “shades” to make me presentable!  My husband needs some magnification to “remove” some unwanted “growth” in More



I have read enough to believe that most of us, in the past, have always  had aspirations of purchasing better made product, be it a whirlpool, or front door, as better constructed materials will not only last longer, but be more pleasing to the eye.  Has this trend headed south?  My own philosophy tells me that certain generations that have enjoyed strong economic times have done their thing, and are now sitting back and thinking that they have what they need, and no longer need to buy top of the line More



For the past few weeks I have been meeting with a client who has gone into panic mode as summer is coming and her second home in the Hamptons is not ready to go. I had her come in and the first thing I did was to get her to relax and we would get thru this together. We reviewed the plans and settled on products from Jaclo and Rohl for the bathrooms as I know I could get these products quickly, in the kitchen she wanted stainless steel sinks which I More



Despite being small fixtures, faucets play a large role in the overall layout of a bathroom. Lavatory, shower, and bath fittings have a distinct personality once the faucetry is added to the mix. Bathroom faucets are selected based on a combination of finish, handles, and mounting options.

So once your realize your front door is warped and ready for a change, like Steve, our do it yourself customer yesterday, you have to do the routine of measurement, selection, and functional requirements. Doors, I kid you not are complex. The selection available today is daunting as can be the price. So, in walks Steve, saying “I am interested in replacing my front door!” Sounds easy right? Wrong! Is Steve replacing the door only, or is More



I recently went to a clients home which is currently under construction in the Alpine area of New Jersey. The purpose of the visit was to walk my client thru the home and select the door hardware he needed for his home. Needless to say my client was overwhelmed as I showed him his options and gave him what I thought were the best options for the design of his home. At the same time I was there trying to More



If you are one of those who desires a bidet, and your current master bath, or any other bathroom for that matter does not have the space, it might be worthwhile to consider a bidet seat.  I am one of those!  After undergoing some recent surgery, the details of which are not worth talking about, I found  myself in need of an item that I would have never considered in a million years.  The bidet, as far as I was concerned, was a European thing, and not something that most Americans More



What would you suppose is one of a homeowner’s worst nightmare? For me,it was coming home after a three day weekend in Boston, and upon opening my garage door I sense moisture in the air. Not just damp, I mean wet. I hear nothing, or smell nothing, but I know that water is running somewhere. I virtually run upstairs, and enter the two bathrooms, and all is dry. I run back downstairs, and More



Here is a story with a happy ending.  A couple visited our showroom this morning, and had a specific problem and need.  The had recently purchased a home in the Poconos, and the diverter  that was part of their tub filler on their whirlpool failed.  It was made by Fredrich Grohe of Germany, but the part was at least 30 years old and no longer available.  Hardware Designs was suggested to them by their plumbing contractor.  He said if they can’t help you then I don’t know what to say!  Well, More



I have been selling decorative bath materials and door hardware for almost 40 years, and there is rarely a bath I can’t improve or a door hardware problem I can’t solve, and frankly I am proud of it! Enter Jimmy from NYC late last week. It’s late in the day and Jimmy has a distinct issue for his long but very narrow bathroom in his 57th street condo. He has a “bigger” issue though–that being he is More



I have been living in my home for 26 years now, and my front door has been painted, repainted, sanded and repainted again and again.  Frankly the door is tired and really is in need of retirement.  Sure, I have been pondering replacing them for the longest time, but now is the time, and here is why.  I co-own a showroom in Fairfield, NJ, called Hardware Designs.  We have sold decorative hardware from companies such as Baldwin, Omnia, Rocky Mountain, Nobilus, Classic Brass etc. etc., for many years, and yes, I More



This morning a client came in looking for a kitchen sink. I asked her what type of sink she was looking for. She wasn’t really sure what she wanted.  I explained to her that there are different types and styles to choose from. Let’s get started, grab a cup of our freshly brewed coffee and follow me into our kitchen area. She immediately became overwhelmed by the amount of product we have on display. I said, just breathe and let More



Its a Monday, and a couple strolls into hardware designs to consider the renovation of their master bathroom. Sounds easy, should be easy, the budget is clear, but there is this problem!   He is six feet  four inches tall, while she is only about five feet one!!   Some questions come to mind.  How tall should the vanity be, not to mention the toilet, and the shower set up.  Big guy want the toilet tall, while little woman can’t feel comfortable on the extended height toilet.  Hey has the bad knees, while More



Service, that’s what it is all about!  If you are a full time sales person, and you receive numerous calls about where are your faucet deliveries, or where is your decorative door hardware, then your job is to answerthese inquiries in a timely fashion.  Hardware Designs has a 10 member service staff, dedicated to nothing but service.  Our tech department is second to none, and each sales associate’s assistant is virtually the right and left arm of the company.  I know of no competitor that does it the way we do.  More



My home was built in 1968,  a time when current plumbing codes were not even in the dream phase!  Balanced pressure, valves, or thermostatic valves for the home were rarely used, and were never specified by architects of that time period.  So, when your hot or cold shower valve freezes up, and finding replacement parts is more of a bother than it is worth.  I spent a fair amount of time looking for these parts, and finally was convinced by my plumber to open the wall and put in up to More



How many of you can’t decide whether to do a whirpool/bubble bath, or a plain soaking tub?  I am more than confused.  I rarely, if ever, take a bath.  Hey, who has the time anyway?  I have a state of the art shower that I did through Hardware Designs several years ago.  Do I need a whirlpool for resale, as my realtor has said, or is that old school?  It is not that I would not like lounging is one of these new air massuer baths, but do I really want More



I had the most fun helping a customer today. Ever. Not that I don’t like have fun – but this day was different. The threat of a blizzard was imminent and the contractor needed the materials. The pressure was on! Now, people are individuals, and all people react differently to pressure – especially pressure that is unwanted. In this case – choosing items for the house was the LAST thing on my clients mind (as it had been for the More



I am about to do a renovation, and it is a daunting task to say the least.  Per my architect, I pay a visit to Hardware Designs in Fairfield, NJ.  So, my reaction is worth reading!     Kitchen sinks, kitchen faucets, soap pumps, instant hots, pot fillers, disposals, water purification systems, bar faucets, and  bar sinks—and then came the 10 trillion pieces of cabinetware on display!  Door knobs, door levers, front door locks, deadlocks, hinges, door bumpers, appliance pulls, and anything else that adorns a door!  For the bath, it was faucets, More



Not the sequel to the novel, but the actual state of affairs when it comes to vanity sales at Hardware Designs in Fairfield, NJ.  Vanities from Vanity Flair, Ambella, Keuco, Duravit, Kallista, Fairmont Designs, Forms and Fixtures, Astorloid, Wetstyle, Sonia, Duravit and Empire top the list.  With plenty of sinks to choose from, and about 800 faucets on display along with their matching accessories, nothing is left to the imagination.  Whether you are on a budget, or creating the bathroom of your dreams, Hardware Designs has the price point to match your More



I suppose the buzz words of the next decade is “buy it cheap online!”  I don’t disagree with the statement, but has all personal service left the stadium, and does the term “cheap” rule supreme?  I, like anyone else, love a great deal.  but it is not the worst idea to see what you are buying first, especially when it comes to faucets, tubs, vanities and door hardware.  There is a technical aspect to these categories that makes it hard to all make all decisions based strictly on price.  I would say that if you are More



When shopping for new cabinet hardware for my kitchen renovation I stopped in at Hardware Designs in Fairfield NJ.

I have very hard water where I live and it makes the task of cleaning the bath and kitchen very difficult. I looked into water softening systems but was turned off by the idea of adding salt to my water system. I know there are alternatives to salt based softeners but in our hectic lives who needs to deal with the maintenance. I went to Hardware Designs in Fairfield NJ and found a new product I was not familiar with, it is called a water conditioning appliance. It breaks the bond between More

The kitchen company that is about to finish up installation of my long overdue new kitchen, requested information on the cabinetware I intended to use, as well as the appliance pulls for my refrigerator and freezer.  I had no given this much thought, but after getting numerous recommendations from several friends who have already done thier respective kitchens, I went to a company in Fairfield, NJ called Hardware Designs.  Just how many cabinet hardware choices could there possibly be, or for that matter how hard could it be.  I needed 25 More

(www.hardware-designs.com)  At this point I would hazard a guess that probably less than 50% of our product line is U.S.A. made.  Unfortunately, this trend continues to slide, as more and more of our industry partners source most of their materials overseas.  China, Malaysia, India, South America, Mexico, and of course, Europe figure more and more into our product offerings.  The good side, is lower pricing, the bad More



Sticker shock, total disbelief, or some other expletive deleted!  Pricing today, in-spite of recession, is almost unworldly.  Sure, we can always buy inexpensive materials  from the big box stores, but if quality is what you are after, what is the limit as to what one should spend on faucetry, hardware, tubs, whirlpools, locksets, or any other item for the home for that matter?   The simple answer is, well made material is not inexpensive.  Sure when sourced from the far east,  prices  are as much as 40% lower, and that comes at the expense of our rising More

I have standard door hardware all around my house.  I believe it is made from Schlage lock company, and a style long ago discontinued.  I recently completed an addition to my home and required another 10 locksets of various functions.  So began the search.  I go online just just as does everyone today.  I google the words decorative locksets, and egads….only about 15000 entries assault you.  Where to begin?  Confusing, daunting, expensive, and frankly not a whole lot of fun.  I decided to do the showroom routine at Hardware Designs, and all I More



Hardware designs just sold me a steam shower with a sound system that seems to emanate from the walls themselves!  It’s a new concept, and my shower became a stairway to heaven!!!!!!  You don’t see the speakers, as they are applied to the rear of the walls and the walls themselves virtually exude the sound from all spots.  This is a wild idea, and for a music freak like me, all I can say is wow!  Thanks goes out to the staff at Hardware Designs in Fairfield, NJ for bringing the More



I needed a 15″ round undermount  bar sink.  I did what everyone does.  I went to Lowe’s, and was helped by a nice young man, who “sort of” knew what he was doing.  I purchased what I needed, brought the  bar sink home, and installed it.  Easy, right?  Well, last week, I had some company and used the sink, and when all left I put the wine glasses in the sink.  Well the bottom of the sink is concave, i.e. you can not put a glass down in it and expect it More



I have been in the hunt for floor registers and wall grills in oil rubbed bronze.  I have spent a lot of time online looking for this stuff, and by this stuff I mean not Home Depot quality!  I want something substantial that won’t rust or look like garbage in a year.  I have been told to visit Hardware Designs in Fairfield, NJ.  Has anyone been there?  I am told they have “umpteen products” on display.  If anyone has any thoughts on this company, I would like to hear about them More



I have a home under construction, that by any shake of the imagination would be considered unusual.  This is not a small project, and 100% of it is custom, right down to the door hardware.   I needed materials that augmented the style of both my home and my doors.  I happen to like ornate things, and my home is rather ornate, putting it mildly.  Some would say it is “over the top,” but it is what I like and want.  I had to find a place that did custom hardware, and More

Hey, why not! I live in a home where 2 of my 4 bathrooms do not have windows! The exhaust fan does not work that efficiently, but that is a separate issue.

Some folks are truly not interested in a jetted whirlpool.  Some folks are not interested in a airbath either.  There is an alternative that I find most interesting.  Bain has come up with a few new concepts over the last year, and one of the more intriguing concepts is called thermosense.  Essentially, this is a heated back rest.  When saying heated, I mean just that, heat you can feel.

Who out there knows what the code is for tub fillers, be them from the wall or the floor, or from your tub deck for that matter? I visited with Hardware Designs in Fairfield NJ and got an earfull about meeting NJ plumbing codes.

So I’m driving home one Tues evening from my daily commute to NYC and I run into some unexpected traffic in Fairfield N.J. I don’t usually hit any congestion in this area, but as it turns out there was an accident and things were backed up pretty good.

I am in the midst of a long overdue and involved renovation of my home in north Jersey. I am working with a decorative plumbing and hardware company called Hardware Designs in Fairfield, NJ. They show more faucets, more door hardware, more cabinetware, more stuff than you could possibly imagine. Let me tell you one thing you won’t see online at their website, www.hardware-designs.com and that is it’s great coffee, tea, hot chocolate, etc. Hey it beats my 25.00 mocca jamoca extra latte schamoka at More



To infinity and beyond!!!!

Finally something new for the shower stall that will achieve the spa look you crave. The problem has always been the boring 3″inch shower grid drain in the center of the stall. Not only does it destroy any decorative vision you might have for the tile on the shower floor but you are also forced to stand on that uncomfortable eyesore while bathing. Until recently this was simply unavoidable. Now there is a choice. Why not consider an Infinity linear drain? In the past this type More



My builder, actually a nice guy, but cheap, put in switchplates that didn’t even do cheap Chinese imports justice. I decided it was time to have the category live up to its name…..i.e. “switch-plates!” I shopped around, from local hardware stores to Home Depot. What garbage! My neighbor told me to go to Hardware Designs in Fairfield,NJ and have a look. Suprise, suprise! Multiple styles, mutliple finishes, competitive pricing, and some serious guidance. I put in oil rubbed bronze plates to match More



The date was Oct  9, 2007, and the Dow industrial average was 14164!  On March 9, 2009, the same Dow average was 6547! As I write this blog, the Dow is once again 800 points away from recovering that major paper loss.  I believe it is often said that what goes up must come down, but it seems to Hardware Designs folks that the opposite also hold true, what has come down will rise up again!  The lesson is simple here, now is the time to renovate and rebuild.  Prices, once More



My kids are animals! They don’t just open doors, they open them with a vengence! The knob hits the wall, and bingo, another hole to patch. I purchased so called hinge pin stops some years ago, and not cheap ones either. They all broke because my muscle bounds nut cases overpowered them! Seriously! Time for help. I wenlt to Hardware Designs in Fairfield,NJ and had a look around. That football field sized showroom had more stops than a street in mid More



So, my daughter likes, actually needs to take baths for her skin condition. I wanted to replace her bathtub, and get her an air or whirlpool bath to make her more comfortable. I went to Hardware Designs, and a very knowledgeable salesperson helped me with my bath. In short – I chose a Bain Ultra Air Bath, because I can add Bubble Bath and other additives to the water because its a sealed system. Tub is installed – my daughter and I am both happy. We love it! www.hardware-designs.com or More



I am re-doing my kitchen, and my neighbor suggested that I go to Hardware Designs in Fairfield, NJ to look at what they have. I wanted a farmhouse sink with a rustic look – something regular fireclay doesn’t have. After speaking with a salesperson and learning the difference between Bronze farmhouse sinks, Copper Farmhouse, and Mosaic Farmhouse, I decided on a black granite farmhouse sink by Stone Forest. It has a rustic, rough front, with a polished interior. Exactly what I was looking for. My salesperson was knowledgeable and helpful. Thank More



I was looking for something different for my kitchen and bathroom faucets when I walked into Hardware Designs in Fairfield NJ. Lo and behold I found the perfect faucets. I found faucets that have lights, one for my kitchen from KWC and I also found one for my bathroom from Gessi.

Check them out on the web at www.hardware-designs.com or for more info More

Is 2012 finally the time to take our foot of the brake and begin to do the work our house needs.  It has been four years of caution and low spending for so many folks, and for many, virtually nothing has been spent at all!  I believe it is safe to say that at this point housing has hit the price bottom, and while we may not see much of a value increase this next six months, one can almost guarantee that prices will once again begin a slow ascent.  If More



Look no further than Hardware Designs in Fairfield NJ if you are looking for door stops. I went into Hardware Designs looking for hinge pin door stops that would fit my Baldwin hinges, as all the hinge pin door stops I found did not work with Baldwin hinges. They have hinge pin door stops that fit and best of all they come in 9 different finishes. It would seem that this was not a big problem but for me it was and I am so glad I stopped in at More

My shower door looks like a London fog has permanently settled on its surface. Another shower door in my downstairs bath has rain spots the size of quarters. These doors are not new, so I decided to replace them from Hardware Designs in Fairfield NJ. My salesman, Larry, explained the differences between 1/4?, 3/8? and 1/2? glass. He also gave me the option of using a product called clear shield. I bought into the concept of glass that required less cleaning and maintainence. More

I have four sons who all share one bathroom. Their ages range from nine to sixteen. Since day one I have had problems with the toilet, clogging, running and my personal favorite “the slamming down of the toilet seat”.

Last week I went to Hardware Designs in Fairfield NJ, with the intention of buying a stock vanity that was approx. 60? wide. It had to be only 15? deep, and I assumed I would not find it. Well, I was dead wrong. My sales rep, Larry, designed me one! I spoke, he drew! I said country, he said fine! I gave him my tile, he matched the color. I said hamper, he said “cool!” He even designed a custom medicine cabinet with More



So many customers come to our place of business, wishing to redo baths, kitchens, or buy new doors and hardware.  For once, they wish to  know where the materials are made. Europe, India, China, or perhaps America!  For the last 30 years we have been selling materials made around the world, and I can say with authority, that in the past, our companies purchases were at least in balance as to origin of manufacture.  I would say it was always a 50/50 deal. Today, that balance is shifting, and that is More

Dig away dog of mine. Go visit them!! www.hardware-designs.com



Xylem vanities have been on display at Hardware Designs now for about 6 months and sales are brisk.  While the building industry continues to suffer, imported vanities are more popular than ever for assorted reasons.  While many imports are made with wood veneers, Xylem is made form all natural wood products whose visual appeal is attained by surface absorption of stain, varying grains, knots and other characteristics which are inherent in natural products and veneers. Xylem uses both granite and marble for their stone tops and vessel sinks. More important, the More



I have finally figured out that a grab bar doesn’t have to be hideous looking. I never wanted to add one to the shower, until I was either old enough, or unsteady enough to really need one. Well, I really needed one after doing some neck surgery. Bending down was difficult, and the grab bar was of great assistance to me. The nice part about it is that I found one at Hardware Designs in Fairfield, NJ that was satin gold. That matched my shower valves More

I never really gave much thought as to what a faucet would cost, but in the process of redoing one of the bathrooms in my home I was fortunate enought to visit Hardware Designs in Fairfield, NJ. The knowlegeable staffer I worked with gave me an explanation as to why some faucets can cost a week’s pay after I admitted to some sticker shock. I’m not a wealthy person but I am practical and when the instrinsic More



So, what do you think?  Should you go for the cheap inexpensive model or perhaps spring for the good stuff?  Well, my job is not to tell you what to purchase, as our company, Hardware Designs, sells both!  My job is to tell you the differences that exist, and once you are educated, you can make the appropriate decision. So, I will begin with some  vanity construction facts. Many, if not most imported vanities use 1/2″ chip core or  MDF interior melamine, with a finished exterior.  Most higher end manufacturers use 3/4″ More



If you’re thinking Green Acres when you hear the words Farmhouse Sink you’re a bit out of sync. Today, many homeowners have expressed a desire for bigger, deeper sinks much like those found in rural American farmsteads a long time back. But while they may emulate the old sinks of yesteryear, they are completely au courant when it comes to materials, finishes and color options. At Hardware Designs in Fairfield, NJ, my informative sales associate laid out an extensive menu More



For all you Dornbracht fans, the latest news is still rather murky.  Polished chrome continues to be your best bet for now, and other finishes like their stunning platinum matte, continue to be a problem if you are in a rush.  There are numerous reasons for the delays in production,  but the word on the street is “logistics!”  We have all assumed that Dornbracht would have been in a better position by now, as the horrific plating factory fire should have been resolved, but insurance carriers have not be particularly cooperative, or More
