We recommend sticking with the same brand when ordering hardware for a few reasons. Like, being able to have them keyed alike (don't get me wrong, it is possible to have some of the brands keyed alike, so give us a call if this is the case and we can find out for you.) and it also gives certainty of matching the finish, but what happens if you have to mix the brands, because what you need is made by someone else? Well let's see what we can do.
Can you tell there are 2 different brands in the picture below?
The privacy bolt is from Linnea and the Lever is from Emtek.
Try and stick with finishes that are easy to match, like satin nickels, satin chromes, polished chromes and even flat or matte blacks. The really hard ones to match are bronze finishes.
